Default Speaker noise at low volume

Hey everyone!

Today i've noticed that when I turn down the volume to the lowest level, the volume level before muting the phone so you can barely hear it, I can hear a static noise coming out of the speakers if I put it veeery close to my ear. This happens when playing games, listening to music or doing anything which has sound. If a turn up the volume i cant hear it anymore.
Is it happening to everyone? Is it normal?
Thanks in advance

I haven't tried it (my background is a bit noisy to test right now) but I think I've read that its a software issue and not hardware. I can believe that its software based also because you state that it only sounds that way at low volume.
