    Does anyone have a true recommendation from actually owning the over the ear headphones with the V20? We are looking for head phones that trigger the "high impedance" which is said to be over 50 ohms on the LG V20..... If yes?...... What are they?

    I have a pair of Sol Republic Tracks V8's that trigger "high impedance" (I think the ran at 70 ohms) but those are "on-the-ear" headphones. Though I'd recommend something better, I feel like the B&O H3' that came with the promo sound better attached to the V20.

    They sound good when they trigger high impedance. Problem is they've only done it a few times out of about 100 that I've plugged them in. I'm also in the market for a decent pair of headphones to compliment the device. Sorry but the H3 in normal mode just don't do it for me. I'm looking for good noise canceled buds that utilize the the DAC fully every time they're plugged in.

    It would be nice to get a good list going. Might as well try to utilize every bit of the phone to its fullest extent since we have it.

    My tacks activate "high impedance" every time for me so that's weird they don't for you. And I never said that the h3's were great, just better than the the tracks IMHO.

    Take a peek at the following article, also keep in mind anything with an impedance of 50 ohms or greater will trigger that high impedance mode...

    Sound wise (sound stage), noise isolating in-ear headphones (ear buds) tend to always sound much better than their noise cancelling counterparts. You will also have a hard time finding in-ear headphones with enough impedance to trigger high impedance. 50 ohms or greater is typically reserved for on or over-the-ear headphones, not in-ear.

    I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on Beyerdynamics Custom Studios. They are 80ohm and have an adjustable 4 position slider which changes the bass port to add or remove bass. They come with a removable coiled cable. The offer a cable with mic and remote button for 25 dollars but I may look for a generic one if they are cheaper. The headphones are 199 on Amazon through 17th Street Photo.

    Here's a quick list...entry level (over the ear), not in any particular order with amazon prime pricing:

    -AKG Pro Audio K702 (224.86)
    -Sennheiser HD 598 (149.93)
    -Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80/250 ohms (137 / 154.17)
    -Sennheiser HD 650 (314.99)
    -Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 (128)
    -Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7NC (299)
    -Hifiman HE400i Planar Magnetic (249) *
    -Grado SR80e (99) *
    -Audio-Technica ATH-M50x (139) *

    All those tagged with an asterisk are below the 50 ohm requirement, but are still very good with the phone.

    The ATH-MSR7NC are only high impedance with Noise Cancelling active so they might not activate high impedance with NC off.

    That could be the case, but they still provides consistent Hi-Res Audio reproduction (with or without) noise cancelling turned on. There is no discernable difference between the two settings. You would be better off keeping the noise cancellation always turned.

    NC always impacts the sound but I agree keeping the NC always on is best. I hate that they have a rechargeable battery but it is warranted for two and they can replace it.

    I saw that but there has to be some change in characteristics because of the amp that kicks in for the NC. I actually spoke to a factory rep who has a pair and confirmed a subtle difference though it's probably not worth debating. I believe in this case they actually sound better with NC active because the V20 bumps up the gain. They are quite good though based on other people I know that in them.

    How would you compare all three together? What's your favorite?

    Definitely grab some that people got for promo and are selling. They're good but not worth the $149.99 that they go for full retail.

    The AKG K712s are my favorite. The have a clarity and spaciousness that I love and a tight accurate bottom end w/out being boomy. They're also extremely comfortable. The Q701s are the same just with slightly less bass impact. The Senn HD650s don't sound very engaging to me being driven by the V10 or V20. I usually listen to them with a cheap $100 Chinese balanced cable connected to my OPPO HA-1. There, they sound better than I'd ever heard them sound before with a pricey unbalanced Cardas cable connected to my Burson HA-160D. A balanced connection really makes a difference for some headphones.

    My favorite headphones for the V10 and V20 are, believe it or not, my Bose QC25s. The bass sounds just right and there's a nice helping of that clarity I'm so fond of. They're very easy to drive being low impedance but they sound good.

    Is there a special icon that shows up to let you know when the high impedance mode kicks in?

    They sell them on Craigslist as well for cheap, I saw about ten pairs for $40 each last week.

    No, you have to go into the settings and into the Hi-Fi Quad DAC to see if it is in High Impedance mode. Sometimes it will say "External audio device connected" which usually means High Impedance as well.
