    Default Macbooks & Headphones - Noise?

    Hey all, just a quick question. I'm no audiophile, and I definitely am very new to buying better earphones and headphones. I often listen to music, and sometimes do video work.

    Some headphones/earphones, when plugged into my macbook, have a very high-pitched tone and some sort of static noise to it. Perhaps it's called white noise? Not sure.

    I've been reading up and don't understand. What's that got to do with? Impedance? Quality of earphones? etc.

    If anyone can share, I'd really appreciate your time. I just bought a Beyerdynamic DT 231 Pro, Denon AH D501 and Hippo Groove from Jaben yesterday cause it was a bundle offer, and some have this tone/noise. But I love them for their sound quality vs price (:

    Cheers!

    Do you have a headphone with volume control? Seems like increasing impedance (resistance) can solve the issue.
