AKG K 271 MK II Do I need a portable heaphone amp?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi there, I'm going to buy these headphones and I noticed they have a 55 ohm impedance. Will that sound good on my iPod Classic, or do I need a portable headphone amp (I am considering the Fiio E17)? Will the high impedance make them sound too quiet on my iPod, or will it be just fine?

 

Thanks for the support.

I just bought them to use with my ipod.  It's not a matter of volume, but clarity and detail is much better if you use a line out and an amp.  I use both the hornet and the E11.  The difference is not that great between the amps.
