My current set up is an iPod Touch 3G -> Predator -> Jh16
I just got a pay raise, and coupled with my accumulated savings, i was wondering if i should start looking around and trying out something new. I love my jh16's and predator to bits, but have become very very intrigued by the XM6 from practical devices. It seemed to be choked full of useful and interesting stuff, and i wanted to give it a go. Was wondering if any of you guys got any advice to give?
My main question really, is trying to match the impedance of the amp and iem. The 16's have an impedance of 18Ohms and sensitivity of 118dB, which goes nicely with the predator's output impedance of 5-300Ohms. The XM6 on the other hand, start off at 24Ohms and goes to 300.
What is the effect of the relatively high output impedance on low impedance headphones?
Hope to hear from you guys!
