Superlux HD660 + Fiio E6 ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, First time posting on Head-fi, been reading up about audiphile and getting into it now.

 

Starting my journey with a Superlux HD660 which I got off from a friend pretty cheap,

 

I'd like to know if a Fiio e6 would be good enough to power it.

 

Im using a Zune 30GB and a Sansa Clip+ and current IEM as Creative EP630.

 

Been reading all the technical stuffs but cant seem to understand it :(

Oh trust me, you don't even need an amp to run these. I couldn't find the impedance of the 660s, but for the 681s it's 32 ohms, and if the 660s are anywhere near that, an amp is definitely not needed. Really you would only need an amp when you start to get into the range of 150-300 ohms.

 

PS ohms is basically how much your headphones resist the input signal/how much power they need to be driven effectively. 32 ohms is extremely low.

The Superlux HD660s are 150-Ohm.

The 660's is a 150ohm Impedance,

 

still new in these kind of stuffs, just gotten my E6 and testing with my Zune>e6>ep630

 

not much significant difference but with bass boost EQ on the Fiio it sounds brighter,

 

And on which should I set the volumes?

 

like should I put the Zune on Max, adjust on the e6 or Zune on the mids, adjust on the e6, does it affect anything?

 

Added tech specs of the 660's

 

Specs:
Transducer:       Dynamic
Acoustic Design:    Closed
Frequency Response:    10 Hz-30 KHz
Impedance:       150 Ohms
Sensitivity:       96dB SPL/1mW
Weight:       300g
Cable:         1.3M Coiled

So I guess the 660's will need an amp to drive em.

 

Fiio e6 would do the job?

 

and Im still new with the settings etc. any one care to guide me?
