I’m progressively more and more annoyed at music-on-hold systems. Back in the 90’s, they used to play a trivial simple tone melody while on hold. Now they play complex music selections, which never make it through the pathetic audio of the highly-compressed digital phone systems and come out distorted and scratchy.
As my midrange hearing has deteriorated, I find I’ve become very sensitive to high-pitched distortion.
Anyone else annoyed by this?
