That means your amplifier is of low quality rather than a problem caused by the low impedance.
My Auralic Taurus MKII has no hiss with my Shure SE846 and Shure SE535.
My opinion is that amplifiers should always have a low impedance because it can screw up the frequency response of a headphone if the impedance is too high.
That is not necessarily true. It will only do that if the headphone does not have a flat impedance curve.
