      • A:

        As most smartphones have low output impedance headphone amplifier sections, a 47 ohm load should not be a problem. A headphone impedance that is about 8 times that of the amplifiers output impedance is considered ideal. This will provide maximum voltage transfer and good damping of the drivers in the headphones.

    • Q:

      Are the drivers protected inside the earcup?

      Some headphones have grids to prevent ears or something else from poking the speaker cones.

    • Q:

      Voice Isolation

      Is the sound isolation function in the M20x as good as the M40x? What are the db values of the two headphone's sound isolation?

      Many thanks.

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. These are both closed back, studio headphones so the do offer a degree of passive isolation although we do not measure that spec. Some headphone manufacturers do provide this spec in dB, although I believe this to be a meaningless spec, because the question is "dB of isolation at what frequency".

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. The frequency response of this headphone is actually below what you could actually hear at 15 Hz, so they will have plenty of low end.
