    I am looking to buy some nice headphones for listening to music on my MacBook (late 08 alu version). I can't find the specs for the audio out on my model. I am interested in a few different models, particularly a pair of Koss, but want to make sure that the macbook has enough power to make full use of these guys. (I obviously won't be using them on an iPod or anything like that).

    Thanks in advance.

    The headphone output in macs is no better than those found in an iPod unfortunately.

    Which Koss exactly? I would say that if they are under 50 ohms you will likely be alright. For my AKG 702s I need a dedicated headphone amp and DAC to take full advantage of them. I don't know if your Koss will need this though.
