I just bought a beyerdynamic DT880 just two weeks ago. I must say I love the sound coming out of the cans. However, I would like to be more informed about the choice I made. The DT880 seems to have 32 ohms (rare), 250 ohms, and 600 ohms (rare) impedance editions. I bought the 32 ohms so that my iRiver E10 DAP could drive it. I'm just wonder if the impedance matter to quality or not, in other words higher the impedance means better sound quality? I bought the 32 ohms instead of the 250 ohms or the 600 one. Am I an idiot for making the 32 ohms choice over the higher ones? It's an expensive pair of cans and the store clerk told me they had little difference in other technical properties. Is that true?
