I recently bought a Microsoft Surface 2, wonderful device but it has one little drawback. I often listen to podcasts on really low volume or just have the IEMs in my ears at all times, even when not playing any sounds, and I can hear a slight but constant static noise when the headphone jack of the device is activated. Would it be possible to hide the static by buying an IEM with high impedance and/or low sensitivity? The Surface seem pretty powerful and I rarely listen to a volume higher than 8 out of 100.
Recommendations? I have pretty small ear canals and I like the sound profile of my ATH-CKM500s. Ultimate Ears 600vi were clear but way too sharp treble for my taste. Dynamic driver over balanced armature for me? Budget wise I'd be able to go to around 80-100$ at maximum, less would be better.
Thanks in advance!
