Headphones straight to zoom g5n (without amp)

Post by gibsonZoom » Thu Sep 22, 2016 9:06 am

Hi guys and thanks for accepting me to the forum!
I am planning to order zoom g5n from amazon and I would like to add some headphones.
My question is - is g5n able to drive headphones like AT M50 without the usage of amplifier?
Just GUITAR---->ZOOM G5N------>headphones.
Thank you very much for your opinions!

Yes.. recently bought g5n and a pair of Sony 7506 headphones..also having the fear of some patches sounding too low, I bought $24 4input headphone monitor amplifier at guitar center

..it works, the headphones themself work..but here's my opinion, find monitoring headphones fr.fr..no coloring the g5n sound..go to a store that will let you take them home and try them out..mine work for $99 but I could have done better I guess..try different types and makes if you can..
p.s.-maybe you can take the g5n to the store and try the phone's out there?...

Hi Robert, sorry for my late reply, after many hours reading online, i decided to take the ath50x - no sound coloring, and i am very satisfied (although i believe nothing beats the gn5 plugged into the amp but for us living in small apartments its an issue).

I'm kinda sorry I didn't try mine first because I have a suspicion that the headphones reject high gain and distortion patches...then again I've always had problems with the pickups seemingly reacting to atmosphere or humidity...I'm in a small apartment also...
