Is it normal for HD 560s to slightly fade out then restore to normal volume when gaming with an occasional squeaky/static noise with it?

Recently bought the 560s and have been super pleased except for a couple of things. I use them for music, movies, and PC gaming. When gaming (CoD: Vanguard), the sound will occasionally fade out (not completely) for a couple of seconds then back to normal. Sometimes with a soft squeaky/static sound in one or both sides of the headphone. It is hooked up to my computer through DAC which is more than powerful enough to drive it. Has anyone had this issue? This is my first stint into the audiophile arena. Wasn't sure if this was normal or could it be the game? I have only noticed it when gaming, but I have also gamed a lot more than I have streamed music and movies.
