YOU NEED AN AMP for these. To anyone that wants to go out ad buy a pair of these remember, they are professional headphones.
Spec wize you might ok on voltage or current, but ohms law is at work here and what these phones need is power. I do not have the equipment to figure out which one more, but I have a good feeling these are more current headphones than voltage.

|Your source is an integrated sound card, where power is lacking...|
|This is why the XBs will sound so much better, they are forgiving and efficient, also not designed to show every weakness in your chain.|
|Sorry to sound harsh, I just wanted to clear a few isconceptions I see always in PC Audio.|
They do need power. The reason for this is not immediately obvious, but while headroom gives a freq. response graph, it does not do what many passive Pro speakers supply, which is an impedance spectrum graph. I have an idea of what it might look like, so that it can have the specs it has but perform the way it does.
