When vaping, there are some sounds that you should hear. Most of them are good, normal if you will, when your device is working properly. However, you need to pay attention to particular changes in the sounds.

You see, certain vaping sounds are bad and can create ugly consequences. With that said, here's the good, the bad, plus the ugly consequences of vaping sounds.

The Good

A steady crackling noise, accompanied by a soft hiss is a good sound. Sometimes these two sounds are a more distinct when you've just changed the atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. New machines will have a more pronounced crackle, but it will quickly level out to normal. Crackling, hissing and hissing sounds are normal.

However, there can be problems when the sounds stop or you start to hear a loud popping noise every time you inhale. The crackle and pop effect are again normal. Sometimes you may sense the sound is changing when increasing the amount of nicotine intake. This is normal because the increase in volume of nicotine creates a higher vapor content and the crackle sound is more pronounced.

The Bad

A properly working device is going to produce a light crackling pop sound, but you need to know when the sounds become a problem.

First, if the volume of the popping sound increases, pay attention to any dramatic changes in the taste. If you notice an unusual bitterness, you really should clean your device.

A buildup of vaporized particles will cause a popping sound when the heat increases. You can first change the wattage setting, airflow adjustment, or see if you atomizer is too wet depending upon what the device’s functionalities are.

Pay close attention to popping noises that get louder the more you vape. If you sense the popping volume is getting worse, plus you're experiencing an unusual amount of spitting liquid, you need to have the device checked.

The Ugly

That is one of more frequent problems vaper's experience. When the pop gets louder, there seems to be an unpleasant spitting that goes with the pop. You want to enjoy the full flavor of your vape experience, but no one wants a mouthful of bitter juice. Usually you will notice a change in the popping sounds your machine is making before you experience the ugly taste in your mouth.

Another problem is when the sounds stop. If you find that there are no noises produced when you vape, this indicates a problem. Your device needs cleaning because it is clogged. When you notice all the sound has vanished when you vape, clean it immediately. If that doesn't correct the problem, have it checked out before you use it again.


The crackling and popping sounds of vaping are normal and many vapors mention how relaxing they are. It's when they become excessively loud, or start spitting that they’re bad. When you don't take care of the bad sounds, they can have ugly consequences.
