What does "impedance" mean?

Impedance is the so-called alternating-current resistance that headphones have under specific standard conditions. On devices with a low output impedance, headphones are the louder, the lower their impedance is. In principle, we recommend that you choose headphones with a low impedance for use on devices that are operated by battery/rechargeable battery (i.e. most portable devices such as smartphones, tablet computers but also notebooks).
