Ideal headphones for CSP-3?
03/18/14 at 20:20:53
 
I realize this question is a bit of egg-before-the-chicken, but here goes: What are some great matching headphones for the CSP3's OTL amp? I have some low imp. Grados which simply aren't cutting the mustard. Sennheiser perhaps, but the consensus is that they are a bit too tame for rock music. Is there a particular impedance range I should be looking at?

The product page says headphones from 32-600 Ohm. I have not used many different brands so hopefully others will chime in.

I use the AKG 702 with my CSP3, and I like it. Before that, I had the AKG 701.

I am not a headphone expert but I don't think the CSP3 is good for low imp. headphones. I have 50 ohm modified Fostex and did not care for the sound on the CSP3. Now my headphones were a match made in heaven on the Taboo amp.

From my own experience, the Beyerdynamic T1 or DT880 work very well with the CSP3.

As long as you at paring it with a high impedance headphone ( I.e. 300 or 600 ohms), it should sound great .
