Behringer UMC204HD Headphones Impedance

What is the maximum recommended impedance for headphones that you can operate on the UMC204HD? I mean, this thing is only powered by the USB connection. For example, does the AKG K-712 Pro with 62 Ohms work properly with this interface?

Has any of you gained experience with that u-phoria and headphones?

Re: Behringer UMC204HD Headphones Impedance

Hi Frederic ( @fpas ), 

 

Welcome to the community.  Your thinking is actually backwards.  Lower inpedance headphones actually pull more current.  That being said I've used both Behringer HPS3000 @ 64 ohms and Senhieser HD650 @ 300 ohms without issue.  I've used these both on a 204HD as well as a 404HD. 

 

Hope this helps, 

Ken
