Android phones and PCs compatible headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

first post here, greetings to all friends... beerchug.gif

 

 

The question is if earphones like

 

Sennheiser PXC 450

Studio Beats

JVC HA-NC250

 

as ranked in this review,

 

would be suitable or advisable to use with android phones,

like samsung galaxy sIII, and to listen to music on PCs,

even with onboard sound, but listening to lossless files (like flac and so).

 

Some reviews state that this family of earphones request

an external amp in order to deliver proper sound quality. Would it still be good

if directly plugged into the mobile phone or PC?

 

Thanks,

Xezi

Not sure what they measure at but generally low impedence headphones are better suited to phones, Daps etc.  The higher the impedence the quieter they will be due to them being harder to drive, I'd try to avoid going beyond 50 ohms or so earphone impedence for phone use.

 

You are probably better asking this question in the earphones section for a more detailed reply.
