I've tried my old sony MDwalkman and plug it with a higher end Sennheiser headphone in Hung bros. the sound was very soft, so i opt fr a lower end one, juz enough fr my needs.
    Many manufacturers exaggerate their specs. For accurate reproduction, frequency response should be rated within + - 3dB range.

    Those that publish 16-22000Hz will always conveniently omit the amplitude range. (i.e it may be already -20dB down at 16Hz which is essentially useless.)
    Try finding something that can give 20-20000hz(-3dB) for under $500....last I checked a few years back, nearly impossible.

    Drivers are rated by their sensitivity which is the Sound Pressure Levels in dB they can output with a 1watt input. The more sensitive a driver the louder it can play while drawing the same current.

    Typically a driver with wider frequency response will require a greater current draw and hence will have a lower sensitivity.
