Question... Anyone that has this unit having issues with low impedance headphones? I notice that the impedance is 20 ohms and 10 ohms (balanced and SE, or the other way around)...

Yes absolutely. Low impedance headphones do not work with this at all. My HE400i's sound terrible. DT770s terrible, Sony MDR Z1R terrible. HD800S - the most incredible pairing I've ever heard using balanced out. Using SE - terrible lol.

Output impedance won't affect planars as they offer an almost perfectly flat impedance curve, not disputing you didn't like the combo just that it had nothing to do with OI in relation to the HE400i.

I am running LCD-2 without issues (70 ohms if I am not mistaken). I would stick to headphones that are 60-70 ohms +.

It powers most headphones well, although Fostex T50rp mkIII and all the variations of them are powered reasonably but it takes full vol
