    I had a Blackbook a couple of weeks ago and there didnt seem to be this problem but,


    whenever I plug in headphones I get a low little feedback noise through my expensive headphones. Is this a normal? My other Macbook did not give off a little low distortion/alien type noise.


    I appreciate all your feedback.

    I usually get some low level noise when I pause iTunes or something when I've got my headphones in. I think it's just because the signal-noise ratio of the headphone port is pretty bad. It's certainly more noticeable with decent headphones.

    I also get spaceship noises when using headphones on my macbook. I HATE IT.
    Most annoying when doing audio editing and such. I've posted before about this but got no reply. Glad/sad to know it's not just my machine. Anyone got more info on this issue? The only thing I can think of is that there is a problem with the D/A conversion, because it sound like digital interference of some sort.

    I must say, I'm usually anal about stuff like this, but after having used 3 sets of expensive headphones (Beyer DT770/DT100/Shure in-ears), I've not heard ANY grounding sounds/noise at all, in my 2.2 SR MBP. It's completely silent and pristine...

    I only hear it for about 10-15 seconds when audio is stopped. The output then goes silent.
