Hi to all,
I have tried to search a previous answer to a question in the forum but since now I can't find it...
I have read in the specs that the AKG K601 (120ohm) and K702 (62ohm) both have a max input power of 200mW, I am searching a small desktop power amp (for a starting point I have checked the E09k that someone seems to have used with these...) that can correctly drive these headphones however there is something unclear to me:
I see the the E09k stated a specs of >900mW at 32ohm and >150mW at 300ohm Vs for example the E17 that has >250mW at 16ohm and >30mW at 300ohm
What I don't clearly understand is why I have read that many times the E09k (or E09) is used for a headphones like K702,K701,K601 (same max input power of 200mW)? Isn't it too much power from E09 to the drive them considering their ohm and max input power? I suppose that at 120ohm and 62ohm the E09k send a lot more than 200mW of power to them.There isn't risk of damage the driver?
I think I have missed something technical about this...
Can you please help me understand a bit more about this?
Many thankks for your help
