I just ordered iAudio 7 4GB, and now i need to make a choice about headphones.

Would Koss KSC75 or KSC55 be a good choice?
Or Sennheiser OMX52 street?

Will iAudio 7 have enough power to drive them?

thanks,

Take a look at my profile for a list of acceptable canalphones. You should be able to find a few of them for a very low cost but if you want to drive a worthy set of phones with that high quality player you bought, look at my signature for an acceptable list.

Of your choices (I assume you're looking for budget-friendly) the Koss KSC75 is a marvellous place to start. Easily driven & a wide-open, impactful SQ...

If you're more interested in in-ears, lewislink's recommendations are sound
(JBL REf 220's for ex)

If you ever consider about in-ear earphones I would recommend Westone UM2s. You can find plenty of reviews here.


While the UM2s are amazing earphones, the options mentioned by the OP lead me to believe he's not looking to spend $200-300.

Koss and Sennheiser are the only type of good headphones i can find in Serbia. Other brands are not easy to find. IEM's are next to impossible to find here

For example, the Koss KSC75 are about 60$ here, and the iAudio7 4GB cost me about 190 $.


Thanks for the advices, i will go for the KSC75s,
