OK so both of my sons, and my neice are ipod addicts. I personally have never enjoyed music through earbuds, no matter how good. I have my eyes on buying them the klipsch image one headphones for their ipod. They are similar to the famous bose noise cancelling, but they are klipsh. I do love me some klipsch.
OK so I'm reading around and it looks like the sensitivity of these headphones are 110db/mw. That is loud!! An ipod puts out 30mw per channel.
So the basic rule is that it takes 10x power to increase the loudness to double, meaning that if the headphones create 110db with the first mw, then 120db with 10 mw.
does this sound right? This headphones are going to absolutely be louder than hell. Klipsch speakers generally speaking do not distort, and will handle all the power you want to throw at them.
Anybody post your opinions or facts on this subject.
