The noise has always been there, but normally you have to zoom all the way in to hear it.

Cryptic has had issues with screwing up their positional and audio effects systems before, so either one of your settings got changed in the patch or they bugged something.

I'm going to hazard a guess and say Cryptic probably doesn't have a qualified or full time audio guy working on STO - few MMOs do since audio is the red headed stepchild to the graphics wunderkind. That much is plain in the incredibad recording, eq, and mixing present in the LoR VOs and basically any sound work added since release.

Try messing with your in game audio settings, and if that fails try changing some settings in your sound card's control panel. If all else fails, file a bug report and hope that they look into it.
