Discussion - ID:Core BEAM amplifier.
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hi, I tried to use my ID:Core BEAM with an AKG K240Studio headset. Even at max volume the sound was extremely low and I could hear the noise of my fingers playing through the headphones. My dealer says there might be a problem with the impedance, since the headset comes with 55 ohms of impendance and that's probably too high for the BEAM. Now I need to know the output impendance of the BEAM in order to buy a proper headset, but that's not reported on the technical specs sheet. Anyone can help?
My KRKs are plenty loud at 36ohms. Do make sure to check you don't get crazy feedback when using high gain settings. Seems a number of these BEAMs suffer from a manufacturing defect or design flaw where feedback deafens you if using OD settings at high gain with even moderate volume. Just a heads up.
So it appears that I have the problem with the feedback in my headphones. The problem seems to disappear when switch off the reverb and delay and/or lower the gain and the lows. But I'm curious am I using the right headphones? Because I'm using a Sony Hi-Fi headphones and maybe the problem is with the impedance from the amplifier. So anyone with a clue what is the impedance on the speaker emulated output?
