I can often hear an intermittent buzzing/fuzz sound and some random blips and bleeps when I listen to music on my computer through my (old school!) HeadRoom Total Bithead and my Fiio E17 Alpen amp (using Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones). This happens no matter which computer I use and on all USB ports. I thought that using a DAC instead of an internal soundcard was supposed to eliminate this kind of extraneous noise, but in my case, the DAC/amp seems to be introducing or amplifying internal computer noise.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, and does anyone know how to fix it?

Is it a windows pc? Are you using any eq software, did you reduce preamp accordingly? Did you set the appropriate sample, bit rate options? Are you sure you have your dac set as a default? Is the audio bypassing the internal system? And, from an android/neutron use, these clicks pops happened to me with too much software latency, check that too if possible...
