I have problems to properly monitor my Kemper via Headphones and need some help here.
I'm using a Focusrite 2i2 for quite some time now and im sending my kemper into it and from there
to my Studio Monitors. This works good so far. The problems start with my headphones. I'm using high
impedance headphones with 250 ohm. The 2i2 has no chance in driving them properly. Its bus powered
so its clear where the problem is coming from.
Today i tried a way more expensive audio interface from Presonus with the hope that this would solve my
issue. But that was a big NO.
The headphone amps on the Presonus are way more powerfull so they get pretty loud but at the same time
they still sound absolutely shit. Sorry but this is not acceptable in such price range.
I tried the Presonus 1824 to be even clearer here.
Compared to the build in headphone amp of the Kemper the ones on the Presonus are complete garbage.
So what is this ? What is the magic behind the Kempers headphone output ? Why does it sound so
absolutely genius while other audio interfaces can only disappoint in that regard ?
I taught spending more Money on an Interface would provide more quality but thats just not true.
I want to be able to monitor the Kemper directly from an interface in the same quality as i'm getting from the
Can you tell me what way to go from here ? The monitoring with my Studio Monitors works ok with the 2i2
so far but my Beyerdynamic Headphones make totally clear what i'm missing in quality when not using the
Kempers Headphone Output.
