I had a pretty quiet but nonetheless noticeable hiss with my HD558s but with my K7XX I have none until I up the volume till where, with music playing, it could pop my ears. Probably impedance related. Hooking up my DAC tomorrow to see if that makes the already great sound better.
I do get nasty static sounds with my phone if it's too close (which is like within 2-3 meters...). Also a lot less audible on the K7XX.
To anyone looking to buy this, it's a bit of a double-edged sword. I'm not sure I'm fully convinced about the "tube sound" on this one and might buy a new tube for it soon to compare. Other than that, I love the looks and the heat it puts out (gives it that bit of "retro" vibe yet it looks futuristic-ish kinda). Not quite retrofuturism but I love it nonetheless (just like fallout).
I don't have any noise with my K7XX so I'm alright.
