With what headphone impedances does Balance work best? I'm planning to buy a pair of headphones that have quite high impedance (300 ohms) but I don't know if they will work well with Balance? (Sennheiser HD650)

Edit: I have now bought HD650's and can report that they work absolutely fine with Balance.

I've just received my DT770 250ohm headphones and plugged them into Balance. The sound is beautiful and loud even at 50% volume (and I've been playing drums for 25 years so must have some hearing damage).

The reviews about the headphone volume in Balance are clearly wrong.

I am having the same problem I am only going to be useing headphones with balance at the moment, the headphone level is up full and it is very quiet. Im using a mac and have gone into audio midi setup and balance's level is as high as it can be and so are the levels for the mac. Im sure I must be doing something wrong. Any help much appreciated!

I find the headphone amp and the direct outs to be lower than I would like. I have Sony MDR-7506, Sony MDR-7509 and it's fine for those. But for my Sennheiser HD650 headphones it's a little low. And the direct out I run to mono to an Avantone mix cube and it's a bit lower than I would like. I have to turn up the amp on the cube almost to max.. but the sound is still clear. If you read about how the Balance DAC/ADC work, they are at full volume for optimal sound quality and the knobs are analog and only lower the signal.
