easy to drive, like... in easy to drive compared to headphones which actually are hard to driver properly like old Yamaha Orthos e.g.

The K701 need an amp, but they'll be driven fine by almost any dedicated headphone amp. But to make them sound decent you need some tubes to tame the 7k-10k spike.

This.^^^

roBernd is high as a kite me thinks.

 

I would say roughly 500mw-1watt to properly drive the K701, anything over that isn't really over kill but it wont really make that much difference.

The EF5 was made to drive the HE5/LE, and I think it put out 2 watts.

I believe you're mistaken, that appears to be what awesome appears like in a physical form.

Those pictures described what you were saying perfectly.
what amp/dac do you use when they sound like that?

HE-500 sound to me like.....

They are so wonderful. They pack a lot of detail as well as a musical....creativity? You can hear so much but at the same time it's just so easy to get lost in the very soft and warm mids.
