People will bash on whatever they see. No stax is TEH BEST, NO DYNAMIC DRIVERS <3 HD800 BEST++, Nope, all about orthos gotta have them LCD-3s.

 

All in all this forum is more biased than anything, but I don't see the hate it's more of proper and more respectful way of being disrespectful per se.

higher impedance are harder to drive, lower is easier to drive in the long run, you just want an output impedance lower than your headphone impedance

 

stick one of these into a speaker amp and rated at 100+ wpc and it'll blow up.

 

Kinda too lazy to go into detail but ya pretty much.

 

If you want brighter sound go for numero dos, tigher and slightly warmer sound number juan

Sensitivity is also a huge part of the picture. Impedance Basically tells how well the amp can transfer power to the headphone. However, sensitivity determines how loud the headphone will play with the power it receives....

@ OP I could PM you a great article about impedance, sensitivity, and the need for an amp... If you are interested in more in-depth reading (It is not allowed to link to the article in the forums.)

32 / 96 +/- 3 dB / 1mW (S.P. L at 1 k Hz)

 

that's a joke lol

 

also I was just putting a general topic into play here.

Looking at the specs of the two @ monoprice, neither of them will benefit from amping....

LOL fuuu... well Im not that technical.. I jsut want a cheap pair for mowing the lawn, etc. I guess I'll go with #2.. But will they blow if I use that amp with them? I wont like turn them up super loud, just wanna enable bass boost.

Of course they won't blow up, just stick it into a 500 watt per channel amp and see what the miracles it can provide.

 

But no, as long as you don't stick them in anything really above 10+ fullwattage it shouldn't do any harm (realize I'm not using any math here just a little guess), but there are such things as noise level the gain on speaker amps are pretty effin high, so I'd just recommend something under 1.5-2w

I seee... thanks.

 

How about these with an amp? http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10823&cs_id=1082302&p_id=8323&seq=1&format=2

 

Fuuu I just want a valid excuse to buy that amp! :P

They won't blow up or be damaged, or anything.... they won't sound any better than if you just ran them out of your phone and EQed the bass up either though....

<_< you should really try it out actually, you'd be surprised on how much an amp can do. It'll make it sound better of course! or worse~, but theres always a change. So the components do affect sq. Not just the power requirements but the way it's being powered.

*AMPS change SQ* just as much as sources (kinda)

why don't you just buy my Pico Slim amp and be blown away with the tf10s :D. I'm trying to sell them anyways to get a better desktop amp.

I have owned several amps, and have listened to many headphones amped and unamped. I agree...amping makes a huge difference for some headphones... some headphones really don't benefit from it at all either... although...depending on the output impedance of the source, many headphones can benefit from an amp, even if they don't need the extra power ( the ratio of output Z to headphone Z should ideally be > 1:8)

So...it really depends on several things... but ...yeah... wink.gif
