Ultrasone Pro 750 + Steinberg MR816 X - Impedance/compatibility

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey Head-Fi users.

 

I have been very enticed by the Ultrasone Pro 750 for mixing purposes and am hoping that my audio interface, the Steinberg MR816 X, is compatible with them in terms of driving them, impedance, ect...all of that complicated stuff that I can't really figure out.  

 

Basically, through reading some of this site, I've come to worry about headphone/amp compatibility and specifically the different impedance ratings of the headphone and the amp.  I don't know how to find out if my selected headphones and the audio interface that I own are compatible based on the technical specification provided by the product manufacturers, but I have collected that information and am hoping that someone with some experience can do it for me.  

 

So here is is, I hope someone can help!:

 

 

 

Steinberg MR816 X headphone outputs:

 

 

1000

 

Ultrasone Pro 750 technical specifications:

 

1000

 

 

I am hoping very much that these two will do fine together and that I will not have to purchase another headphone amp.  I am very excited about these Pro 750's yess.

I haven't used the Steinberg with the 750s, but I've used it with HD25s and it had plenty of headroom. I own the 750s and pair them with an RME Babyface and it's an excellent pairing. The RME is fairly weak output as it's bus powered. I don't think you'll have any problems powering the 750s from the Steinberg.

 

The Steinberg is bright and so are the 750s...

Hi devgru, thanks for your excellent reply :)

 

 

I'm purchasing the 750's because mixing is my primary concern and I hear from master audio engineers (dave pensado) that these are a great choice.  I'm not concerned with how good they sound so much as how accurate/revealing they are.  

 

With that said, you're saying that both these headphones and my amp are bright.  do you feel that would bring the high frequency range into the level of inaccuracy? If so, is there any way I might mod the headphones in order to reduce brightness? or, perhaps, do you have any other headphone suggestions that would suit my purposes better with my steinberg?

 

thanks again

I see. They're not the flattest reference, as they're slightly v-shaped. They wouldn't be my first choice for vocals. They are extremely revealing.
