Nominal Impedance

Nominal Impedance is the amount of opposition to alternating current.

The ideal nominal impedance of a headphone would exactly match the output impedance of the source.

Differences between the output impedance of the source and the impedance of the headphone could result in louder or softer volume than expected.
