So upon doing more research, it seems like the XD05 may not be as suited for sensitive IEM's compared to HA-2. But definitely a power house for higher impedance cans.
I listen to around 1.5 - 2.5 low gain on HA-2 on SE846's. Really want to try a AKM dac that's portable, as my Schiit stack certainly isn't, but sounds amazing on SE846's.
Can anyone else confirm?

My Philips Fidelio l2 are 16ohm and have a sensitivity of 105db and I don't have any issues driving them with the xd-05. I use them on the middle gain setting with the pot between 11 and 12 o'clock. They sound great!
