Amp frequency range

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was planning on getting the Sony MDR-XB700's, which have a frequency range of 3-30,000hz.  Do I need to get a headphone amp with equal to greater range for it not to lose quality?

Headphone manufacturer listed frequency range is generally useless since they don't show you any FR curve. They put big number there so it is easier to sell to average consumer who believe bigger number must be better - but human only listen up to around 20kHz, and that is when you are teen. Most adult listens up 16~17kHz. Any half decent headphone amp will have frequency range much greater than human listening range. My advice? Don't worry about matching frequency range. The real important question is, do you really need an amp at all?

Yea I need something with volume control since I'm using my headphones with output RCA's coming from my TV.  What's the lowest frequency humans can hear because I'm more concerned about lows than highs.

I wouldn't normally say this, but even after a day you haven't googled "audible frequency range"? seriously?

That's not the question, my original question was never completely answered.  "Do I need to get a headphone amp with equal to greater range for it not to lose quality?"
