It's been awhile. I've since gotten some new x3i IEM and I get the same hiss. The x3i are 16 ohms. Several players get that hiss (including Cowon players from what I've read) with lower impedance headphones. There are 3 solutions to this:
-use some headphones with a higher impedance
-use an headphone amplifier
-get (or make) an impedance adapter with will increase the impedance of the headphones and decrease the hiss. Make a search for "impedance adapter" to get moe info on this.
