Will 450ohm headphones work with the Deluge?

0

So I'm looking at getting some proper music production headphones to use with the Deluge, and I've got my eye on a pair of Audio Technica ATH-R70x's. However, the impedance rating is 450ohms, will this work with the Deluge?

    unclear to me.. I bought a pair of AKG702 which are 250 Ohm and the output is sadly too low to be usable. They work fine on phones, tablets and audio interfaces and mixers, but not on the Deluge.

    Thanks for your post, this is useful information. My current headphones are 32 ohms, and I have the Deluge's volume between 50% to 75% max, so also going by what you say, I really don't think those 450 ohm headphones will work with the Deluge.

    Generally headphones with higher impedance will require more volume / voltage, because they use that rather than drawing lots of current. That's unfortunate that the AKG702 actually won't get loud enough with the Deluge.

    ^^ oactually i was in error, I just reviewed the specs on my headphones.. the AKG702 are actually 62 Ohms...
