    Yeah with the alloy pick gaurd. enjoying it a lot, very fancy, dont want to scratch it. haha. BUT, i just have to play it.

    Axe-Fx III and Headphones

    Axe-Fx III and Headphones

    yes, anything from amp ohm output rating x4 or x8. I.e. axe fx 3 headphone amp being 35ohms. Thus, 35 x 8 = 280ohm headphone. Yet even 35 x 4 = 140ohm headphone is fine and will take a lot to break up, and wont volume up to loud to quick. But its all dependent on the type of head phone besides...

    I use Phillips Fidelio L1 headphones which are 26 Ohms. They are some of the very best head phones for the axe fx ive used so far. You only need the input 1 set to about half way and its bliss. Lots of quick ramp up in volume, so you don't need to push a lot into them. I tried a few others and...
