Unhappy hissing sound from AGX

I have a set of AGX shocks on my RS now. Everytime I go over some bumps, it produces some kinda gas hiss. Is this due to the fact they are gas shocks? The ride is fine so far.

I can second that. If you take the back seat out, you can hear it real well. It's a wonderfull sound.

Default strut noise

My Gas-filled Koni's on the Integra make the same sort of noise when worked hard.

do the shocks have a rubber boot over the shaft? If they do you may be getting the sound from air coming out of the rubber boot (Iv'e heard it called a shock condom) as it is compressed during the suspention cycling. Or it could be a trait of KYBs like other people have said.
