Audio receiver or pre/pro headphone compatibility?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to find specs on various receivers and pre/pros for their headphone outputs but none are posted that I have found. Any idea what ohm rating I should be looking at? Would think they would be able to power high resistance headphones but don't know for sure. Trying to pick some headphones but don't want to make a mistake.
Thanks!

250-Ohm headphone would seem like a good Ohm for use with receivers

What is your budget for headphones?

Thanks for the reply.

Thinking $300 tops but could stretch to $400 if worthwhile.

Will be a one-time purchase - not looking to replace later at my age. :-)

Old rock, pop, jazz, bluegrass, blu-ray concerts, etc. Anything but country, rap, classical.

Looking online at Sennheiser and Denon models.

Have an older - really old - Pioneer closed can set. Have tried some on ear years ago that I liked. Living in a high humidity area, closed is kind of a pain with sweating so thinking some other design. Sennheiser HD598 or HD25-1? Others?
