I'll listen again later today and report back.
I've got almost 1600 miles on a car and I am not planning to change oil until 5-6K. I doubt the oil change has any effect. Ticking noise was happening may be once a week at first than beginning to appear almost every other day. I decided not to wait anymore when it became clear it is getting worse.
