Hey people, 

    -New to the forum and without much audio knowlege or experience i was wondering if a Focusrite Saffire 40 interface had enough juice to properly drive my headphones. (Beyerdynamic DT 880 pro 250ohm)

I am planning on buying the interface to help build my recording gear. i was hoping this interface would "kill two birds with one stone" and i wouldn't have to buy a headphone amp also, the amp being a JDS labs objective 2 amp.

I have included the specs of the headphone outs from the Focusrite Saffire 40, this information comes from the Focusrite webpage. unfortunately i am not sure how to read this information.

Headphone Outputs

  • Frequency Response 20Hz-20KHz +/- 0.1dB
  • SNR 109dB "A"
  • DNR 109dB "A"
  • Maximum Output into 32R +12.4dBu (+10.2dBV)
  • Power into 32R 250mW
  • Output Impedance < 7Ohms
  • Load Impedance > 24Ohms

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Bump,

Those specs won't tell you. What you need to find out is if that amp handles high impedance headphones.

So, i purchased the focusrite pro 40 recently and it does drive the 250ohm dt 880 pros headphones very well, just for anyone that might have also been interested.
