New bathroom light fixture humming

I just installed a new bathroom light fixture and there is a humming sound coming from the fixture, even when there is no bulbs in it. Any ideas why this is happening? This light is not on a dimmer.

Incandescent, CFL, LED, or a traditional fluorescent fixture?

Incandescent I think. I got it to almost completely stop by adjusting high right the glass orbs were on but its still faint.

If it's incandescent are they low voltage bulbs ? It sounds like your fixture has some type of ballast or transformer in it.
