It also happens when playing out of the computer speakers.I may upload a 24 bit filepost #4 of 712/9/13 at 1:55pm
Your PC may not have a 24 bit capable DAC chip inside of it also explaining the hiss. PC listening is almost always terrible unless a good soundcard or external DAC is used.

I am downloading them from various sites, then converting them using DB poweramp to apple lossless. However the file before i convert it still has the hiss.post #6 of 712/10/13 at 12:38am
