Bought N40 because 14 pairs of headphones and earphones at home aren't too many already.

Any point in getting these to listen to my iPhone without adding fancy DACs and the like?

N40 is 20 ohms. N30 is 32 ohms. Other than that I'm not sure. Also I think they both have adjustable filters.

Why would they make the more expensive pair with lower impedance?

Higher sensitivity drivers with lower impedance can actually cost more usually?

The msrp is inflated, there are no good comparisons of n30 to n40, they both use what looks like a balance armature in the "neck" of the earphone with a dynamic base driver behind it in the large part of the earphone enclosure.

n20u is also $27 right now, pretty crazy price

Look at the specs carefully.

This is a lukewarm deal as both N30 and N40 are showing their age. Much cheaper and better sounding alternatives for the money especially in Chi-Fi realm.

Edit: I own both the N30 and N40. Absolutely dislike the feel of plastics being used on these. They feel too thin and cheap for the price, especially at retail. My N40 left earbuds went out after ~7 months.

problem with chi-fi imo is they are horribly uncomfortable, the ergonomics are just bad. can you recommend something thats this small AND over the ear AND has a good stock cable AND has a return policy? i frankly dont know how people deal with microphonics on the chi-fi earphones, i bought a $45 pair and had to buy a $20 cable because the stock one was so stiff and frankly they are so uncomfortable and have so much microphonics i consider them to be unwearable.

i have kz zs6 and kz zs3, zs3 is more comfy but it still is not nearly as comfy as my westones were (my westones break though :\)

did some math and the impedance and spl dbl/v

N40
Sensitivity at voltage:115.00 dB/V SPL
Sensitivity at power:98.01 dB/mW SPL

N30
Sensitivity at voltage:116.00 dB/V SPL
Sensitivity at power:101.05 dB/mW SPL

so with 1 mw you are getting 101 vs 98.. lets remember that 3db difference is perceived as TWICE as loud! im going with the n30 because i dont want to carry around the amp for the n40

I'm on the fence. I have only Bose QC20i ANC earbuds. How would these AKGs compare?

Noticeably better sounding?
