If you don't turn up the volume to max, they won't break. Before they break, they all will distort.

Many amps can easily kill headphones.

thats what i thought too,but nope.some headphones bust on 25% volume if you boost the bass using the knob at the bottom of playerpro instead of the 5-band equalizer,enna e yanja dude :p

Why do you want to turn them up so loud? You realise that loud sound can(and does) irreparably damage your hearing?

its not about volume, its about more headroom before the clipping to avoid dac distortion when eq'ing

When the question mentions how much amperage to break headphones, it's no longer about clipping.
