I understand how the impedance works, reasons for higher ohms headphones in nice high energy studios, but I don't know how EQ and sound quality works with it. My question is I want to buy the all popular DT7700 pros headphones. The reviews all say the 250 ohms headphones sound better and clearer higher eq, with less bass. The problem is I use a focusrite and it has 10 ohm output, like most interfaces, which is an exact match for the 80 ohms headphones, but I really want the 250 ohms if they sound better, they are the same price by the way. I know I can buy a headphone amplifier but would rather not. I also see a lot of people talk about how the 250 ohms headphones work just fine on the 10 ohm output interfaces. My main question is will it actually hurt my mixing, with changing the amplitude and eq of the sound, or is it simply a matter of turning up the volume on the interface with no change in sound quality. Anyone have any actual experience trying both on the same interface? I have seriously read so many reviews saying both sides with no clear answers.
So the question is : is the 250 ohms really actually sound better in general, and am I better off with the 80 ohms without a preamp or does it matter? Obviously either choice is a good one with these headphones, but at the same price I want the edge in making the most clean mixes.
