It is extremely simple to look at it in software such as RX and observe the frequencies.
Hiss? I’d call it surface noise, distinguished from tape hiss. But that is a quibble. A studio owner I work for occasionally still calls tape hiss “surface noise.”

I sometimes run a low pass filter from high to low to judge by ear when it starts eating into the content's highs. The same for the lows of course.
