High impedance headphones/earphones. Techies saidieni

How come it’s hard to find good quality audio devices in the Kenyan market?

As an audiophile I find it frustrating that you cant find reliable and honest vendors with high original quality headphones with high impedance rating that can drive high quality sound from Quad DAC and DAP devices.

Where can you source the Sennheisers and B&O in Kenya?

I have checked jumia and Kilimall to no avail.

It’s like shopping for a Ferrari kule Gikomba. You’ll get it yes, but emblazoned on a well worn tee shirt.

Give we an example

What exactly do you want…

High impedance headphones or earphones.

200 ohms and above.

Kitu iko na specs kama hizi…

beyerdynamic DT 880 PRO: Semi-open studio headphones, 250 ohms

Kuna shop ya music iko apo village Market you can check it out.

Just find a good importer

Sawa thank you mkubwa

I was thinking about Kentex cargo. I will try them out.

Question; what gives headphones their sound quality,? Speakers or inbuilt DAC?

Just import. I imported a pair of AKG headphones

The drivers in the headphones and the impedance and also how they are tuned

Importing is the only way to go. I advise importing with savostore. I get my stuff in 2 weeks

Just did that. Someone from Europe alinikujia with a pair of Bang and Olufsen headsets. Pure audio bliss

I don’t like the company. It’s like bose for me. Enjoy the new cans!

Aty 200 ohms? kwani ni earphones za public address wewe unajielewa kweli?

Boss there are even headphones with 300 Ohms from Sennheiser.

HD 600 – Engineered for absolute clarity, the HD 600 is the professional’s choice for reference playback. An instrument of Sennheiser’s passion for perfect sound, it is globally recognized as the standard for analytical listening in both technical and hi-fi applications—even 20-plus years after its release.

X-Ray Specs
The HD 600 was developed to give engineers and audiophiles an impartial scale of everything before it in the audio chain. Purpose-built to vanish when the listener presses “play”, the HD 600 is the benchmark reference headphone for evaluating, mixes, masters, and even other audio components. This disappearing act starts with an innovative, systematic approach to sound reproduction using transparency as the driving principle. Leveraging Sennheiser’s progressive production techniques and computer-based transducer optimization, it perfectly fuses the art of sound with the science of it.
Opening Up Your Mind
The foundation of the HD 600 transducer system is an acoustically transparent open-back earcup that lets every single sound wave expand freely—a Sennheiser innovation pioneered and perfected for the most natural personal listening experience. Sound emanating from our exclusive 42mm driver is free from turbulence and distortion thanks to a specialized acoustic silk that controls airflow—one of the finest materials available for this task—while requiring hand assembly. By using ultralight aluminum voice coils, the 38mm diaphragm exhibits rapid rest and response times for clinical detail that never sounds harsh or hyped. Across the entire audible spectrum of sound, this combination of driver size and integrity delivers an articulate response that is honest to the source—the kind of listening experience required to absorb the details with confidence. The 300-ohm impedance of the HD 600 presents a unified backdrop that allows the nuances in your projects to leap forward like you have never heard before. Each transducer is measured against rigid standards for consistent performance across the entire frequency spectrum in both channels. By reducing variances between left and right channels, the headphone reproduces mastering-grade sound independent of room acoustics or loudspeaker positioning.
Quality Control
We worked tirelessly to build a headphone with the luxurious comfort and lasting durability studio professionals demand. The velour HD 600 padding is supple to the touch for extended listening at your DAW or hi-fi stack. Even the earcup grille pattern was crafted specifically for this transducer system, guaranteeing a pristine personal sound experience. The HD 600 is assembled in Ireland at a state-of-the-art production facility with the attention to detail required to handle a wide variety of acoustic materials. Our production tolerances are extremely tight, ensuring that your HD 600 experience is consistent with those all over the globe, whenever or wherever it was purchased. For example, the resonators feature stainless steel mesh to guarantee uniform performance after manufacturing. Most parts on the HD 600 are modular, making it a dream to keep operational as the go-to reference monitor regardless of your listening space’s acoustics.
It’s All About Connection
Your HD 600 comes with a detachable, impedance-matched cable with ultra-low capacitance. The ¼-inch / 6.3mm stereo connector offers the audiophile-standard plug for connection to devices such as audio interfaces, headphone amplifiers and A/V receivers, digital audio players, analog gear, and more. At 9.8 feet / 3m long, it offers unencumbered listening on gear deep within your shelves, studio, or desktop. A premium adapter is included to reduce the 6.3mm to 3.5mm / ⅛-inch for plugging into countless other audio devices.
