The OP stated it will be for HiDPI screens.
Are you running a HiDPI monitor?
If so, what size?
This would be helpful information for the OP.

Except in this case, where you want a muted image there and only noticeable if active or 'lit', which the Input field is.
The concept is that anything not being used is 'muted' or not calling attention to itself.
There should be no eye strain because your not constantly reading it as you scan the panel.
This in turn helps the active or 'lit' buttons and labels be easier to see or spot quickly.
