Volume comparison Etymotic ER4 vs Shure E4G

Discussion in 'Headphones (full-size)' started by errorrrr, Oct 9, 2006.
  1. errorrrr
    Which has the loudest volume right out of the box and connected to Mp3 source?
     
  2. PiccoloNamek
    The E4, because it has a much lower impedence.
     
  3. errorrrr
    what's impedence?? >_< according to headphone.org...

    Shure E4G
    Impedance @ 1kHz: 29 Ohms

    Etymotic E4P
    Impedance @ 1kHz: 27

    ??

    basically... are there noticeable difference between the two in terms of volume?

    Oh, I thought you meant ER4S. The ER4S has an impedence of 100ohms, and there is a noticable difference between it and the E4s.

    ER4P and E4C/G should be similar in this matter. but really it shouldn't matter, because both can be well driven out of any source. The ER4S on the other hand, has 100 ohm impedance, thus requires amplification.
