Is it possible for headphones to have an impedance that is too low for my mp3 player. In the manual for my Toshiba Gigabeat under "Headphone jack" it states a load impedance of 16 Ohms, it doesn't say if it is a minimum or the impedance of the stock earbuds or what. I'm planning on buying some Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3 that have an impedance of 13 Ohms. I know from my experiences with car audio that running amps below their rated impedance is bad, is it the same deal with mp3 player's amps?
