audiohead wrote:I have a C-1 pre amp. I have a pair of Pioneer SE-205 headphones with an input impedance of 8 ohms, according to the factory specs. I know most headphones are 32 ohms and higher. My problem is that they sound terrible on this preamp. The sound great on my A/V receiver. Does anyone know the output rating of the headphone input? I can't decide on a new headphone without knowing whether I should buy a 32 ohm or higher headphone. My owner's manual doesn't list the spec but I thought I saw it in print some where before. I had a pair Yamaha YH-1's before and they were just right. If I new the specs of the YAmaha YH-1 I'd have my answer.

Impedance 150 0hms according to this: Re: Yamaha YH-1
