    I don't know if this is a problem for anyone but when I plug in a pretty good headphone (aiaiai TMA-1) on MBA, there is a tiny buzzing electrical noise. I mean when I'm playing music on a high volume, I can't hear it, but when on low volume, it's very noticeable.

    Is this a problem with my headphone or a jack?

    no. almost all computers have this noise coming from their headphone jacks.

    Try touching the metal of the computer (Palm rests for instance) does the sound go away? I notice it to but when i am using my external keyboard and mouse.

    This also only happens when it is plugged in
