The cans have drivers with 53 mm diameter, which is a pretty normal size for "large" drivers. Usually bigger drivers tend to cover a larger frequency range with less IMD.
|Copper clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coils
Everyone uses those. Lighter than pure copper.
Everyone uses those. These are stronger than conventional magnets, thus less mass required.
|5-40,000Hz frequency response
Usually given at -10 dB from 1 kHz level or a plain lie. Tells little about actual sound.
The cans will dish out a whopping 101 dB SPL if you feed them 1 mW at 1 kHz. A pretty good sensitivity.
Needs an amp with low output impedance that can dish out some current. Not much voltage swing required tho, and with the high sensitivity these should work well on portables.
Not at all easy to fry, might be usable as little speakers.
Some Audio Technica cans, I guess?
