Headphones OHM? How much is to much for Mp3 players and phones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Heaphones Ohm how much is to much when using portable players such as mp3's and phones? I ask this question becuase im having difficulty choosing between the superlux 668b (56 Ohm) and the samson Sr850 (32 Ohm ) I wanted the superlux simply becuase the detachable cord was a big plus for me but im very picky on getting the best for my money and want to know if id get better quality from the samsons due to there lower impendance  sense They'll primarly be driven from my phones headphone jack. So a little help would be appreciated as im new to the headphone world.

That is a tough question, as it depends on your player too...

 

For example, my HTC One can drive both the Sony XBA4 (8 ohm) just as well as the Heir Tzar 350 (350 ohm), but - not all devices are born equally...

 

I am going to move your post over to the portables forum (as you're looking at a portable source) where there may be some more technically minded folks to help you :)
