I bought the most recent MacBook Pro with Retina display in July, only to have problems with the external speakers. I get random static when listening to music on iTunes and it won't go away. When I plug in my headphones, there isn't a problem, however. What's going on?

That sounds like it's a bad capacitor on the logic board. I'm willing to bet if you dim the display to neary the lowest level (2 or 3 bars from off) there will be a distinct whistling sound coming from the left side of the keyboard near the screen? That's what happens on mine.
Anyway, I've been through several MBP Retinas and I've noticed this issue on two of them. I'm going to attempt to have my logic board replaced on Saturday to see if that resolves the problem and get back to you if it does.
Apple does have an amazing build quality, but bad capacitors are a symptom of mass-production. It happens, and I've seen it happen in many high-quality PSU's for computers I've built. Sometimes high-quality components screw up, and it's annoying because everything else about this laptop is perfect. I will say this though, that the operation of your laptop is perfectly fine and will continue to work if you leave it. It's mainly just an annoying sound that bothers some people.
