Has anyone else notice the squeak that is caused by the rubber inserts in the new Sram Red Cassette?

Cassettes wouldn't squeak, ever: they don't have moving parts. The whole part moves!

Have you:
-lubed your chain?
-applied a little graphite powder between the cassette and the freehub?
-checked to see if the sound is coming from your rear hub?
-checked your derailleur's jockey wheels?
-considered that the squeak is coming from a small (possibly cute) mouse which has made preference to get a free ride by riding atop your rear derailleur, but squeaks in utter fear every time you shift?

I did on all three I have, did not notice any noise differance, WAY easier to clean as the rubber doesn't hold the dirt in any more, also 6 grams lighter.
