Head phones for sansa fuse?

What are the best head phone for the sansa fuse?

Will they drive the Panasonic old school?

Actually I need some that are even better, under one hundred dollars?

hopefully a large over the ear style…

can some one tell me the impedance of the sansa fuse?

I use DURAGADGET for my Sansa. Been working good for me for few weeks now. 

the only duragadget I see are one sided  with mike or in ear…I need some real  head phones. even if I need an inline amp

OK I am thinking of these

but will they work with a

  • Nominal impedance of 64 Ohm ?

  • Sennheiser HD280 Pro Headphones

(SHD280PRO-P)

Sennheiser claims compatibility with mp3 players.

From here: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-280-Pro-Headphones/dp/product-description/B000065BPB/ref=dp_proddesc_0/180-8134113-8238845?ie=UTF8&n=172282&s=electronics

"Widely Compatible

The Sennheiser HD 280 PRO is compatible with MP3, iPod, DVD, and CD players as well as mobile phones supporting a 3.5mm jack plug. HD 280 PRO also supports (listen only) the latest generation of tablets, from the iPad to the most recent Android tablets and the Blackberry Playbook. .

But you might have to crank it up a little.

I use 32 ohm Grado headphones with no problems. Grados are open, not closed back, but they sound excellent.

There certainly is no shortage of opinions on  this subject. Like certain body parts, everybody has at least one. The key is finding the ones that _ you _ like the best . . . at the price _ you _ want to pay. Here are just a few of those afore-mentioned opinions to get you started:

The Sony 7506

Impedance 63 Ohms
Sensitivity 106 dB/W/m
Power Handling 1,000mW

.

 Sennheiser  HD 280 PRO

Load rating 500 mW
Nominal impedance 64 Ω
Sound pressure level (SPL) 102 dB (IEC 268-7)

I do not under stand what to look for in numbers… can some one dicribe what I need to not have to turn up the volume too much?

 My cheap phones need to be turned up to about 66% with 32 ohms.

 Will the larger amount of ohms need more volume to run them?

what do the technical specs say? why can’t I find them easy…

but are they good enough?

The Sony 7506 and V6 aren’t powered so well by Sandisk players. You need to use a headphone amp such as the Fiio E6($25) or something better to get the Sony 7506 or V6 to work well with a Sandisk player. I imagine the same is true for the HD280, although I don’t have one of these. I do have the Sony V6 and the Fiio E6. The Sony 7506 is basically the same as the V6.

While the V6 works with Sandisk players, it sounds constrained and not at its best without using a headphone amp.

They’re basically telling you that those are very similar headphones, electrically speaking.  Each does over 100 dB per mW.  Since Power = V^2/R, and the clip+ will put out over a half volt, that means you’ll easily get about 110dB volume out of both with the player’s volume maxed out.  That is quite loud, since over 100dB can cause hearing loss in the long term.

Yes, see the wikipedia article here:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headphones#Impedance

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get the JVC HA-S160 Flats headphone. It is only around $13 and sounds great. It is much more compact than the V6 and much easier to walk around with. I would not want to walk around wearing my V6.

I got the sentry head phones and they sound good, but the base is way too much for my portable cd player with out equalizer.

But the equalizer on the Sansa Fuzz takes car of the problem easily.

The cord is way too long and they have an open port, so I can’t play it loudly at the library!!! And it lets in too much noise from out side.

I do not have to turn up the volume, infact I am turning down the volume most of the time.

I would like to get some that do not have an open port. Any good solid descriptions?

For isolation, and good sound, what you want are IEMs–Inner Ear Monitors. They are basically speakers built into earplugs, so they block outside sound, don’t bother anyone, and get the music way inside your head. The are inserted deeper than earbuds and they can sound far better.

IEMs can get super expensive. But there are inexpensive ones as well. Some people recommend Brainwavz:

Or MEELectronics:

Or Sennheiser:

Read some reviews and make your own decision.

The thing about IEMs is that the fit is very crucial. Most come with different sizes of tip to fit various ears. Try every tip that comes in the package, and really follow the instructions about putting them in your ears–which may mean tugging down your earlobe, or giving the buds a little twist, or other ways to get a real seal with your ear canal. Once you do…you’ll be a lot happier with your music.

They are not $10 earbuds but they are under $50.  You can also find a whole lot of headphone discussion at www.head-fi.org, where people really have given headphones a lot of thought. Put some of these models into the search box there. 

For $14.23 on Amazon, the Panasonic RP-HJE355 IEM sounds quite good. http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-RPHJE355K-Fidelity-Ergo-Fit-Earbud/dp/B007G97BBE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344002312&sr=8-1&keywords=RP-hje355

The Panasonic RP-HJE295 IEM at $8.42 looks very interesting. I haven’t heard it yet. http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-RP-HJE295-K-Ergo-Fit-Earbud-Headphone/dp/B007N16IYG/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1344017739&sr=1-1&keywords=RP-hje295

I am getting a headake from the tension on these large head phones. Now I must try some of these ear plugs if I can get them to stay in.

Duct tape. Works on anything.
