    Early planar headphones are examples of the esoteric types that need extra drive.

    I actually have two pairs of the Yamaha HP-1 Orthodynamic headphones in question and they do require a little more driving than moving coil types. Very good sound quality though, a little reminiscent of electrostatic phones. And no, I wasn't thinking of selling at the moment.
