Hi guys, I'm looking for mobile earphones or iem's to wear on the street/transit with iRiver AK100,
I know it can be a bit tricky as the player has 22 ohm on the way out. I picked a few iem's below, maybe someone tested some of them with ak100 and finds it working quite well with no sound damping etc.? any recommendation would be appreciated. Price: up to ~1000$
- Heir Tzar 90 Ohm/350 Ohm
- HiFiMAN RE-262 150 Ohm
- Earsonic SM64 112 Ohm (thx zenpunk)
- Denon AH-C250 87 Ohm
- Westone um3x 56 Ohm
- Klipsch X10i 50 Ohm
- Sleek Audio 6 50 Ohm
- Phonak Audéo PFE 232 47 Ohm
- Shure SE535 36 Ohm
- Westone 4r 32 Ohm
- Grado GR10 32 Ohm
- B&W C5 32 Ohm
- Sony MDR-EX1000 32 Ohm
(an interesting thing is that iriver on their site recommends shure se425 (22 ohm) to work with ak100)
I guess I can get the full potential of that player with proper iem's with high impedancy, without modding it.
I will be listening to various music genres (dnb,dubstep,pop,electro,ambient,classic,metal,audiobooks..).
Bass doesn't have to be extremely powerfull and also the sound isolation from the outside doesn't need to be very good.
// nvm. bought IE800 =]
