New units of measurement
« on: June 03, 2021, 08:20:14 pm »

Saw this on a popular e-commerce site when I was shopping for a sound card. I think I died a little bit.

I mean, for someone looking to buy a headphone amplifier for their high-impedance headphones, "able to deliver 600Ω of power" is probably a useful pitch even though it's technically incorrect. They probably should have said something like "able to power headphones up to 600Ω" instead (which isn't a particularly useful spec on its own, per se, but would have given the same information while at least being technically correct).
