Reduce hizzing/static noise with impedance adapter?

  1. Nightfox3
    I bought a new phone, the Xiaomi mi a1, and it has a built-in amp with 10V. I also have the Sennheiser IE80, with an impedance of 16 Ohm.
    The problem is that whenever I use those two with each other, a very annoying hizzing/static noise is to hear. The same with other headphones with low impedance. I've already tried my Beyerdynamics dt990 pro 250 Ohm with the phone, and it sounds perfectly fine.
    I already searched for this kind of problem, and stumbled upon this product from DUNU: https://tinyurl.com/y9qhkff9.
    Would this impedance adapter solve my problem?
    If not, what would you suggest to do?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I don't see why it wouldn't help! I've never used one so I don't know if it affects sound quality.

    Thanks for your answer!
    Ok, I did a bit more research, and I stumbled upon the Ifi IEMatch. Even though it costs 6 times as much, it seems like it actually works better than the 10$ ones from DUNU.
    Already ordered it, and hopefully it works as expected.
