    Depends what volumes you listen at. It *should* be alright up to around 75%, I find my earbuds start to ask too much from the MBP at around 90% and then it starts to distort/wail a bit.

    My Sony cans run off it up to high enough volumes though, and they're really power hungry...

    Id be afraid to use my earbuds(shure e3c) anywhere over half volume. I think Id destroy my ears. But thanks for the help. I think Ill get them. My roommate has two giant speakers and likes to play grateful dead really really loud. I use earbuds right now but not all that comfortable.

    Yeah, I was wondering what vid cards Apple uses in their notebooks, especially the MB, do you think they use Creative? Those headphones btw are awesome, i own a pair of over the ear Sennheissers and really love them

    MacBook Pro Sound Card is...

    Intel HD Audio is the sound card used in MacBook Pro Summer 2009

    From Intel.com (blah, blah, blah...)
    Sorry no answer on what kind of headphones you can use and how you can turn them up. BTW: You kids need to turn your music down.
    Well at least you have a starting point. http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/editor/smilie.gif

    im 14

    i noticed there was no answer. i have the same MacBook and a tip i have is open iTunes and click on windows on the top bar thing. Open Equalizer and then turn the preamp up all the way or raise the bars for extreme loudness and KILLER bass

    I hate to revive a 3 year old post, but those have a high sensitivity so you'll be fine...
