Can't give you any technical specifics, but of the cans in my sig, the ED9's are by FAR the easiest to drive to more than satisfying levels.

My Pico is rated at 8V/250mA at maximum drive, and I'm wondering if this is a sufficient level of output power to get the most out of the Ed9.



I'd say they similar to Pro 750, or slightly easier. I think the "more easy" just might be that Edition 9 has more forgiving sound signature than Pro 750.

Well, I know that Corda Aria gives max 2.8V with USB which is plenty to drive HD-650... I also have noticed that Edition 9 needs a bit less volume than HD-650. Roughly we could calculate that 3V to 30Ω gives 100mA, so it should be ok.

I use mine with my iQube all the time. I've had them modified to the Siver Dragon recabling (4 foot portable length). The iQube drives them seemlessly and elegantly. I've compared recently to my Rudistor XJ-03 and the iQube does just fine.

I don't have it yet, still waiting for it to clear customs. But for my Pro 750 I use low gain. Even on low I can't go past 10 oclock on the volume pot.
