OSS mains HUM filtering 50Hz / 60Hz ?

Some of my USB audio headsets seems to be picking up mains HUM even if 
powered from battery. At first I thought the mains HUM came from the 
computer, but then I did some work and I verified my findings by 
sampling the AC network using a non-switching power supply. Maybe it 
does not belong in the FreeBSD audio stack, but I think it would be very 
clever to have a configurable band-reject filter in the FreeBSD DSP 
framework for 50 and 60Hz? Do we have such a filter mechanism already?

Not sure if this is a so-called "feature" or not ... :-)
