Re: 30$ Over the Head Headphones

nope u dont need a amp. these r fairly easy 2 drive.. and r much better then the 201's .. ive used em and r pretty much flat on bass.. 202's have more bass.. but 201's r better for gaming and movie listening.. not a musical headphone.. the jvc beats the both the senn's .. gf uses it currently and is in love with it.. really good headphone for the price.

I disagree, Its just that the 201s are quite hard to drive(as hard to drive as my HD580s). They need a good amp to show their full potential, one really gets a surprise once ou listen to them well amped.
but ya, who would buy a 10k amp for 1k headphones.
WTH was sennheiser thinking?

Re: 30$ Over the Head Headphones

HD580 97.00 300.00 110.00dB 6.92 Vp-p (V) 23.07 mA
HD201 92.00 24.00 110.00dB 3.48 Vp-p (V) 145.02 mA

This is due to low sensitivity of HD201 92dB/mW as compared to HD580. See the values of current / voltages required by these headphones to reach SPL of 110 dB.
Most amps would struggle to provide the kind of current required by HD201

Re: 30$ Over the Head Headphones

whats the point anyway titana.. ur saying those speakers just coz they have the sensetivity of ur 580s come out the same output if u can find a amp powerful enough to power them? Even with every spec you can find laying in front of you, there are still qualities of a speaker's reproduction that cannot be quantified by numbers... 201's r limited headphones in every way/ ive used em the way a regular used would.
so i know what im talkin about.

@toxic : Did you read what I wrote earlier.
I too have owned HD201 for a while, & have used them amped as well as unamped.

you asked, didn't you?
I am not comparing them HD580s, I just offered some information regarding how hard they are to drive.

it was only coz u said they r hard to drive. and made it sound like its the next best thing to the 580's lol .. i wonder how surprised u were when u heard them amped.. do mention the amp used? id really wanna surprise myself too with these low sensetivity wonders.
