There are 2 possibilities. You have been lucky and have a pair of pl11 that work well with this phone, or (quite likely) your hearing range means you see no problem and hear no hiss. This is consistent with what a lot of others have reported on this thread.
However, if you look through the posts the vast majority that have checked have confirmed my conclusion.
With regards to the PL11, these are budget headphones with relatively poor quality controls. It is very likely that their printed specs differ greatly from they actual specs. Impedence ratings are often misrepresented to allow a manufacture to also list a wider or flatter frequency response. The PL11 would fall into this category.
Shure, Sennheiser, Sony even and some others generally provide accurate specificaitons, because their headphones are used for studio purposes where people would complain immediately if they were off.
I'm not saying you are wrong, what I'm saying is your sample of '1' doesn't mean much in this situation.
I hope you take my reply as it's intended
Been following this post & just thought I would throw my experience so far in to the mix...
I have a GPE Moto G UK... I am running XenoAmp Beta (latest) alongside ViPERFX... My headphones are JVCKenwood XX (Xtreme Xplosives HA-MR77X) : http://xtreme.jvc.com/spec.html
Frequency response is : 8-20,000Hz, Nominal Impedance is : 46ohms, Sensitivity is : 113 dB/1mW, Maximum Input Capability is : 1000mW(IEC)...
I have not heard & can not hear any audible hiss of any description when adjusting volumes or listening to audio, either with ViPERFX or without...
I have also tried XenoAmp native EQ & calibration tool without ViPERFX & again, experienced only clean audio without interference at any level...
Maybe this issue is related to the Motorola proprietary software installed along with the 4.4.2 retail release firmware...
GPE Edition Moto G's are completely free of all third party inclusions & may explain the lack of audio issues in my phone...
Just another facet that I think should be investigated...
Motorola DSP may be the Issue, or other Motorola derived software...
Anyway, I wish you all luck solving this issue... If I discover any solution for sufferers of the audio hiss, then I will be sure to inform you peeps asap
