open/semi open headphones with linn wakonda ??
I have recently purchased a 2nd hand linn wakonda pre amplifier. I am quite happy with the headphone amp in it (others opinions would be appreciated.) .
I own a pair of akg k271 mk2’s that I use with my little dot mk1+ (the portable one) . I have a rather old and tired pair of akg k240 df’s wich i like the sound of . I was wondering what headphones for around £150 ish maybe a bit more would give me a sound as good as the akg’s in the mid ranges and with detail but with a little more bass.
I have listened to a pair of gardo sr80’s and didn’t really like them. I found them to be too aggressive especially at higher volumes and compared to the akg’s they don’t feel like they are on your head, and they do fall of if you move about.
Would i be best getting another headphone amp too or will the one in the linn suffice ??
These are the specifications (all be it basic ones) of the linn headphone output in the wakonda.
"Headphone : Output impedance : 32 Ohm
Output level : 6dB above line output level
Output current limit : 600mA
Load impedance : 8 to 2000 Ohm"
