Hi, Jennifer. RF can be hard to track down. The first thing I'd try is to make sure you're using high quality interconnect cables for the components of your system. For example, the cable that connects your CD player to your amplifier, or computer to your amplifier; make sure that these are high quality cables with good RF shielding. The next thing I would do is get a pair of headphones with better RF shielding than the Rains have. I'd try the AKG 240D for starters (about $185). See if you can borrow a pair just to see if that's the problem. Sometimes getting an isolated power supply line helps. You can buy an isolation transformer for about $70.
