Is my mp3 player supposed to hiss on my phone?

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> I have a Samsung galaxy europa 15500 and I noticed the mp3 player has a slight hiss most noticeable in quiet music and what's more, when you pause you can hear a whirring/static sound that takes a couple of seconds to stop. I wonder is this normal for an mp3 player on phone costing about 150 dollars? Could it be the application used to play the music? My headphones are fine, I used them with an old ipod.<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">

and more again

I was just listening again - it is really poor. when the volume is low or off, the hiss is really like interference you might hear on a radio - hissing and whining. you have turn up the volume more than half way to not hear it. maybe ipods are a major cut above mp3s on phones like this.

That's a fine clue to a solution.

If this is true and it's at the low output area of the phone/thing's amplifier region we can add an inline volume adjust to our headphones and let the amplifier run in it's happy zone then adjust the volume down in our headset.

Here's one I own ->
