    Geshelli Archel2 Headphone AMP Review: another champ?

    What headphone(s) do you own ?

    On ears will never be comfortable. No matter how good it sounds, it just pisses me of that I can't listen for a long time. placement is also a hit or miss. Overall, it's just a hassle. I settled with Sony WH-1000XM3 as my go to mobile headphone. It's got the sound, comfort and features to boot.

    Geshelli Archel2 Headphone AMP Review: another champ?

    They are audiophile myths. These headphones are not as power hungry as they want you to believe. Possibly due to HE-6 which is indeed very inefficient and power hungry, being made by Hifiman and a planar dynamic driver, has most audiophile misleadingly recommend high power amplifier.

    Review and Measurements of SMSL SP200 THX HP Amp

    That is only true with Dynamic-driver type headphones from Beyer and Senn. Planar Magnetics like Audeze, DC Audio, etc are immune to source output impedance.
