Output impedance is 10 Ohms. Many folks on head-fi use it as a headphone amp. That works great, as long as you control the output level in the computer.
Indeed, you can do this.
This DAC has a "bigger brother" which is identical in every way, except it has a variable volume pot instead of a fixed resistor. The adventurous DIYer could probably cautiously disassemble it and replace that resistor with a different one to properly match the sensitivity of your 'phones from most sources on the PC.
(The more adventurous DIYer might be able to install a low profile pot instead, effectively upgrading this to its larger, more expensive sibling).
