Vocal frequency fuzz problem

Hi

I am recently new to recording techniques and the other day I recorded 3 vocals of the same track in order to double track it and add a little backing.
When I recorded the vocal and played each individual one back it sounded sweet, however, when I played trhem all at the same time I could hear a kind of high end fuzz/click/distortion/high frequency sound, which was only there when I played all three back.

I turned up the vocals really high (individually) and could hear just a little bit of spill from the headphones. Would this be the problem A culmanative combination of headphone noise or could it be something else?

You dont say wehter youre playing this from tape or a DAW, but this is a shot in the dark. It sounds like digital distortion, maybe youre overloading the master bus??? Did you pull the faders down on all three to see if it goes away???
