If i get the 250 ohm verison of these headphones. Can i still use the on my phone?
I would plan on getting an amplifier eventually but in the mean time could i use them on my computer and phone? I know they have a long chord. Ill only be using them at home
more powerful thing (> ohms) want / need more power *can* make thing sound better
recording studio or audiophile will notice difference between having lower ohm and higher ohm
typical user will not
Understandable but the 250, 80 and 32 ohm sound different you know?
Your phone won't likely have the power to drive the 250 ohm, I'd say being able to us it with your phone is worth not having the coiled cable
I don't know if Anon has any clue about what he said but with a higher impedance you can very simply spoken reproduce more accurately
just don't think that the impedance on the spec chart doesn't make a difference
oh but yes like most of the times your average consumer doesn't have to care at all while talking about impedance unless it comes to an extreme case of not so powerful mobile device vs high impedance HP
I have the 250 ohm and use them fine with any portable device that has a an amp built in. Any of the iOS devices are fine, a lot of the samsung models are shit.
Buy a headphone amp if you want to be 100% sure they'll be okay.
But if you're using an iphone as your pmp, you'll be fine.
>f i get the 250 ohm verison of these headphones. Can i still use the on my phone?
You surely can but they'll likely be quiet.
>shitty muffled sound with the driver not getting enough juice to it
No, just low SPL.
No, you have no idea what you are talking about. It's the exact opposite. Higher impedance load requires less power but more voltage. There is absolutely no correlation with sound quality and headphone impedance.
If anon got high enough volume, it didn't.
No. Nothing to do with placebo either. The reason why Beyerdynamic makes multiple impedance versions of the same headphones is that you have an option for a wide range of uses. 32 Ohm will be driven loudly from almost pretty much anything. 80 Ohm will be a good middle ground option which is usually easy to power from mobile devices and you still have a good range of volume adjustment from more powerful sources. The 250 Ohm version is designed for high powered outputs like dedicated headphone amplifiers and a lot of studio gear. The 32 Ohm versions have had some poor channel matching and overall poor fidelity compared to the 80 and 250 Ohm versions and as the 80 Ohm is generally considered a headphone which doesn't require an amplifier, it's best just to skip the 32 Ohm version.
