Being as they are only 62 ohms, why are the k701s so amp-dependent? I heard a pair unamped and they sounded terrible. Amped, I absolutely love them. Usually, though, amping is needed to drive phones because they have a large impedance, such as the dt880s or hd6X0. This being the case, do the AKGs have better synergy with different types of amps than higher impedance phones?
