    Will an ipod properly power full size headphones without damage to the ipod?

    I realize "full size" is an ambiguous description. I am guessing some headphones are fine but others with larger drivers might over tax the ipod.

    How would you know?

    I use the fatality full size gaming headphones on my iPhone 4 all the time and they sound great.
    Dunno if this will help

    I use my Sony MDR-V600 studio monitors with my iPhone 4 all the time for hours at a time. No issues yet.

    Extremely well-respected headphone amps:

    I have this one:
    http://www.headphone.com/headphone-amps/headroom-total-airhead.php
    and consider it indispensable.

    These amps have a unique feature...
    They have a switch-selectable mode where they "bleed" a tiny bit of the left channel through a slight time-delay to the right channel, and vice-versa.
    This more nearly recreates listening in free air, vs. the super-separated headphone sound. This feature can be switched off, and either way you get high-fidelity amplification designed for using portable devices with full-size headphones.
