E260 with 64 Ohm headphones

I recently purchased an e260 and currently I’m using it with my Sennheiser MX 500 earbuds. I’m thinking of getting some Sennheiser HD 280’s but they have an impedance of 64 Ohms and I was wondering if anybody here has used similar headphones with an e200. Don’t want to find that it is unable to produce a decent volume out of them.


The Sansa is generally decent with sound quality, as good, if not better then the iPod, You shouldn’t have a problem.

Thats not what i was asking. The standard headphones are 32 Ohm (like most low end types), I want to know if the internal amplifier is capable of driving a set of 64 Ohm headphones. Hence the question, has anybody tried this already?


Unless you plan on listening to it in a quiet environment then I’d not recommend it. 
I actually changed to a lower ohm earbud set.  (V-modas at 16 ohms.)
Now I can make it pretty loud when using it on an airplane or in the gym without having to turn the volume up more than 3/4 of the way.  (On the old set, I had it almost all the way up.)
