Urgh...possibly. It is brand-new so they could return it and get a new one...my friend was just using it just now and it made a boom that echoed for a little bit. Ugh. It was mailed to their house, perhaps it was jolted a bit during the trip...? But they got it in late-July, I think...is it still under warranty?
