hi,
I'm a little confused, as different manufacturers also state values somewhat differently...
What would the mW value be - i presume the higher this value is the more volume is available - so it's the "juice" available for driving the cans? So would a high mW rating be better for cans with a higher impedance?
The ohm rating i'm also not sure about - it seems as if the lower it is, the better it is - apparently providing a better damping factor? So the lower the impedance of the amp, the snappier the response?
any help/links would be much appreciated.

those are good links, krisjan.
i've often found a lot of the technical papers at Headwize to be valuable resources.
