Does anyone own Shure SRH750DJs? Does it need an amp?

post #1 of 4

If so, is the FiiO E6 enough for these headphones? Or should I get the E11?

 

Also, would I need to buy a LOD if I want to run it on a portable device?

 

Thanks!

You do not need portable amplifier for SRH750DJ. There is a good chance that the sound would be worse if you use E6 on that headphones.

 

Look at the description of the E6 on Amazon.com. It says it is for headphones with high impedance with low sensitivity. SRH750DJ is low impedance, high sensitivity headphones. You would hear some distortions that caused by the amp.

 

Just plug that headphones into your phone/tablet and see if you can get enough volume for it.

 

 

Now speaking of it, what's your source? I assume it is a smartphone/tablet, right?

Never would have caught that, thanks man! Total newb.

 

Yea I'd be mainly using it on my smartphone, nano, or laptop. 

Reason I'm wondering about amps is because in another thread, an amp was suggested due to these headphone's bigger driver size?

Driver size is not related to the difficulty of driving the headphones. AKG K812 has 53mm drivers yet extremely efficient (110 db/SPL 36 ohms)
