Headphone Extension Cable... 32ohms --> 300ohms.. easy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have to admit that i'm a complete novice in this area (hence i don't think i've ever posted in this forum ) but i'd like some advice if possible

My newly found love for my Grados is deep, but after listening to them with my X-Cans V2, i know that i can get more out of them than what my Marantz headphone jack can provide

So, what i need to know is... is there a way to modify an extension cable to raise the ohmage of the Grados to that of my Senn HD580s

The reason that i ask is that the Grados clip the X-Cans with low bass, and i don't want to cause injury to either of them

Thanks

A quick question. Do you have an X-PSU for your X-Cans?

No, I don't... but I personally don't warrant it... whether its a case of not missing what you've never had or what, i really couldn't tell you

Well I was wondering if the clipping is due to an inherent limitation of the X-Can itself or a limitation of the power supply.

It was the same with my Sony CD1700s (why I sold them) the X-Cans needs high impedance 'phones (which i guess is why the 580s go so well with it)... low impedance 'phones (such as the Grados) put too much strain on the tubes so far as I know

As to whether the X-PSU would help? maybe... but from what i can gather the wallmart that is plugged into the X-Cans now gets plugged into the back of the X-PSU?!?
