    Sorry for the late reply. They trigger high impedance with the NC off. I don't have to resort to the cable pulling trick or anything like that.
    Interesting but they shouldn't be triggering at 30 ohms unless something is causing external resistance in the circuit. As long as it works I guess it doesn't matter much.

    I use the Sony 7506 Professional over the ear cans. They always trigger the high impedance mode on the V20 being 64 ohm and sound good from the V20. I feel that the AKG 701, 702, 712, the Senn HD 650, 600, 800, etc., are better served with an amp that push some volume.
    Besides, they're cheap!!

    I used my cheap Sony headphones today and they blew me away both on Netflix & Radio app. I don't know if turning on the DAC was the secret because I didn't try without DAC but sound was amazing and these are not high impedance headphones.

    The DAC cranks even with cheap headphones

    Yes they do really crank up my $80 dollar Sony MDR-7506 dinosaur headphones

    I really appreciate this thread so much. I feel like I've learned a considerable amount about headphones, ohms(which was a term I was unfamiliar with), and the best way to properly take advantage of what the V20 offers. This phone is an absolute beast.

    I'm using the Senn HD 650's and the V20 has more than enough power to push the drivers. It's WAY WAY too loud to have it on max volume.

    The thread is about over the ear headphones. Most noise cancelling headphones regardless of ear type have better sonics with the noise cancelation off however there are exceptions. With the noise cancelation off they are generally the same as their non noise cancelation counterparts.

    This guy mentioned both ATH m50x and the X2s in his reviews, I've experience with m50x paired with V20 and I can vouch for the m50x hitting that High impedence mode with V20.

    Sorry but they shouldn't trigger high impedance but they also don't need to. Are you sure they aren't just triggering hi-fi mode?

    I'm just curious, how come no one talks about Marshall headphones?

    Maybe because they are not that common, but I'm just guessing.

    I'll just throw a curve ball into the mix. The completely unassuming Yuin PK1 bud, that is, until you pop them in your ears. 150ohm and sound utterly amazing with the V20. I use 250 ohm DT770 Pros at home but for out and about these will blow your mind for an in ear. Nice wooden presentation box as well. They come in at a little over £105. Just buy them. Insane value for money. Yuin's OK1 bud is also worth checking out. A little more clinical and a slightly higher price tag. Google Shenzhen Audio. Thank me later.

    For my LG V30, I have ordered a Sony MDR 7506 over ear heaphones with 63 OHMs...Hopefully, it should trigger that high impendence mode with quad dac...fingers crossed. Will share a review soon.
