rh1 and pk1's (unamped)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't read these forums everyday so forgive me if anything like this has been posted. I traded in my er-4p's last month for some pk1's for various reasons. The pk1's are just what I wanted; amazing sounding buds with the traditional earbud design. So comfortable and lightweight and really deliver when it comes to SQ. My reason for posting is that many reviewers swear that no matter what one's source is, not much (if anything) can drive these to their full potential without an amp. However with my rh1's volume @ 19/30 and no amp, these HP are driven pretty damn good by the rh1 alone. Has anyone tried this and think the rh1 has sufficient power? just curious to see. :)

Most buds are low-impedance (16 ohms) and an MD headphone amp should drive them quite well. If 19/30 is loud, that's sounds about right with the RH1.

The PK2's are actually low impedance and are probably a better bet. If you're satisfied with the 1's without an amp, that's all that matters.
