Hey guys, Another question for you all.

I just started listening to some classical on my new headphones, HD485, and while they do such a wonderfull job on it, (for a headphone in this price range, makes me kinda feel like im watching the symphony live) ive noticed a bit of a hissing sound here and there, particularly with piano, for example when keys are hit fast and hard, they seem to be followed by a quick sizzle sound. Is this a problem with my headphones ? recording ? source ? amp ?

Im using the realtec 97' audio on my MoBo, and a jvc stereo amp to power them.

and to think, I was SOOOO happy with them, until this, I though I hit MY Audio-Nirvana

Wait a second, I think i answered my own problem, I took that cd, and ripped it to my computer, hooked the amp up right to the pc, bypassing the cd player, and 90% of that hiss is gone, Safe to say it was the source ?

I use my computer for 75%+ of my listening, but i had this music on a cd.
