    Hi all
    I live in the UK and want to import the SONY NW-F887 HiRes Audio Player from Japan.
    Currently I own a pair of SONY MDR-R1 Headphones, will those be enough to pair with the player or will I need an amp as well?
    Sorry if I sound dense.

    I paired so, but could not feel any lack of power. 1R is designed for portability not to need any additional devices, I think. :)

    Thanks for the reply. That's good to know. Do you have the F886 or F887?
  4. graffy1
    No, I do not. But my friend does, so I once tried and found out it was great pair. :wink:

    It shouldn't be a problem.  I have paired the F887 with Sennheiser Momentums (16 Ohms impedance) and I set the volume at less than 50% on the F887. So with the MDR-R1 which has slightly higher impedance it should handle it without any issues.

    I have paired that with my DT770 and it sounded just nice at $0-50% vol.

    My new to me F887 will be arriving today.  Has anyone run Tidal off on it?  How does it sound/function?
