That table doesn't mention impedance though. So when looking at amp specs, they usually specify mW at either 16 ohms or 32 ohms (some 8 ohms).
So are you looking for 60mW at 16 ohms? Or what impedance?
Sorry, just to link my reply back to your question a bit better: if the only spec the manufacturer gives is power into a single impedance, they're not really telling the whole story. They're giving you the data for *a single point* on a power vs. impedance graph; you can't 100% reliably extrapolate the rest of the graph from that.
edit: I'm actually really not sure of the rest of the story from there, so I'm gonna delete that bit of this reply =) Basically, try and find a spec or measurement for the *right* impedance. If you can't, I dunno if there's a way you can reliably tell for sure whether the device can output the correct amount of power for *your* headphones, based on the spec for a different impedance. Maybe someone else does know.
edit 2: I should probably just point you down to the relevant bit of the "more power?" post here: it starts at "CONNECTING THE DOTS". Just search for that text and read, it tells you your options Seems that if you can find the spec for a *lower* impedance, you can figure it out reliably; if you can only find the spec for a *higher* impedance, you can't.
