Hi, to every UK owner who has recently got theirs, basically what I need is confirmation if this is normal or not. If your iPod touch is in sleep mode or off and headphones are in, put them on and turn it all on. Or just make sure your at the home screen with headphones on and NO music playing. So with nothing playing at all, making sure your in SILENCE or quiet room, can you hear any background noise? To define noise, I don't think it's like a hiss but more a fuzz, you know like interference. Even with WiFi off this makes no difference to mine. It is not a major noise at all, but just I would've thought even with those earbuds there would be absolute silence. Oh and when you do play music it is near impossible to hear any background fuzz.
