I have used headphones with much lower impedance (<100 ohms) quite successfully with both the X3 and the HD series. I have also used high impedance headphones. It is true that the sound quality is better with the professional grade, higher impedance headphones, but the cheaper phones will work just fine. I would avoid using earplug headsets, or any phones that are really cheap. Anything in the $60+ range should do fine.
I don't understand your question about sound differences from the recording. The recording itself makes no sound - you only get sound when you hear the playback, and that requires a monitoring (listening) device such as headphones. The better your monitors, the better the sound you hear. Different headphones will produce different sound, as will different monitors/speakers. The quality of the recording is a seperate matter - and has nothing to do with the listening devices.Go to the full post
