I had to create an account just to say thank you to EVERYONE here! I have been reading and reading and finally took the dive on my first ever Hi Fi headphones. I'd always used turtle beach, or skullcandy (just cheap phones) until I finally had some $$ to throw down. I purchased the X1 and have re-coded all my albums in FLAC (talk about 40X the size of my normal MP3s!!)
Anyway, I'm loving the sound, and enjoying every minute of it. I actually bought the Sound Blaster ZxR just for these headphones. But when I went to set them up, I found that I have 2 options.
1. 32/300 ohm
2. 600 ohm
I checked the specs for these babies and found them to be 26 ohm, so I guess I can't use the extra power of my 600 ohm sound card? Would it hurt my headphones if I did?
I'm still breaking them in (only about 7 hours of sound so far) and want to make sure I take care of these babies.
Again, thank you EVERYONE for your discussion! It helped me decide where to spend my hard earned $$.
