What *exactly* does impedance mean? I did several searches on it and did not find a straightforward, plain-English answer. I originally thought it was related to the ease of driving - i.e. if the headphones have lower impedance they're easier to drive. But i've been looking at the SR60 (called low-impedance headphones) versus iM716 (hard to drive headphones), and the iM716 has a 16ohm impedance compared to a 32ohm impedance... what does it all mean???! I was wondering how impedance ties into amping, but first and foremost I'd like to find out what it is.
