I've looked through these threads:
* https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/is-there-any-dac-compatible-with-freebsd.74463/
* https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/oss-sound-quality.69335/

With dev.pcm.2.play.chans=0 and dev.pcm.2.bitperfect=0, playback of 44.1 and 48KHz files has a white noise sound in the left channel and sped up audio in the right.

Without bitperfect, it plays back fine.

I've tried mpv, which refuses to work. sox's play, mocp, and flac -dc > /dev/dsp2.0 all sound like how I described.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

I would suggest setting sysctl hw.snd.verbose=4 and looking for the sample rates when bitperfect is active. A mismatch between the sound format and the device expected format would give you jitter, which could be the noise you're actually hearing?
You can also try setting sysctl hw.usb.uaudio.debug=15.
