The 600 ohm variant is very hard to drive, one of the hardest easy to get headphones. Depending on your listening volume, the E10 could maybe drive it, but I'd generally suggest a superior amp in most cases.
Not sure if this should be here or a separate thread but anyway:
Researching good choices for neutral, very detailed headphones for home use for listening mostly to Classical, Choral and Opera. Any decent performance in Rock and Metal is a plus but not essential. I'd like to stay under £200 if at all possible. Not buying immediately so there is some flexibility in budget but not a whole lot.
So far I've been recommended DT 880s and Shure 940s. Been reading over the site but I'm not finding much information on the genres I'm particularly interested in with these two compared. Are there other options I should be looking at?
Second question: how hard are the 600 Ohm 880s to drive? Could an E10 manage it until I got my hands on something better or would I want to sort out a better desktop amp first? Interested in satisfactory volume not maximising SQ here.
