I bought these thinking I could use them with my phone. Can I ?
Yes but they won't be used to their full potential
Your phone should be able to power them to an acceptable volume, but two things to keep in mind:
1) They'll still sound good, but not nearly as good as they would with a headphone amp.
2) They're open back headphones, so they don't keep your music in (everyone around you will hear it), and they don't keep the sound out... So if you were planning on using them while you were out and about, these are probably not the best headphones for that.
Just going to use them around the house.
Then you'll probably be pleased. From what I've read you can power the HD 6XXs to a decent volume on a phone. Some headphones (like my 600Ohm DT 880s) you simply can't use without an amp.
Just got mine today and tried on my iPhone (7+ and external adapter) and it sounds fine. Does not get loud enough to blow your ears off but also not loud enough to drown outside noise. I also have a Samsung S8 and works fine with that. A little louder than the iPhone but again not ear piercing. I do also have an ifi nano black that I use and that does improve the sound.
