The flat impedance concept is interesting. How does that play out in reality? It seems like it would result in basically the same sound from any amp. Can anyone straighten me out on that?
You've got the right idea - independence from effects due to amplifier output impedance.
That's fantastic! There is quite a number of potential uses for such a design!
Edit: Apart from just enjoying your music if you're a DIY nerd like me...
Yes, it's a smart design. I wish more iem manufacturers would follow suit.
AFAIK, only 64 Audio also does this and only with two of their models.
OTOH, amplifier manufacturers could also just produce properly engineered units with ~0.1-0.5 Ohm output impedance and call it a day. Sadly, few do that.
I think analog sound from gear still has an impact. But something like the hiby r6 that had a really high output impedance had the potential to alter sound on sensitive gear.
