I have a Qudelix 5k Amp/DAC, is it possible to damage the 58X by driving them with this device?

The single ended rating is @2Vrms so it's about 27mW into 150 ohms. I think these headphones are rated for 100 or 200 mW continous (rms) and like 500 mW peak. So it's safe as long as your amp isn't distorting. If you're using the balanced output it's 106mW into 150ohms which is pushing the limits. And if your amp distorts at these power levels it's even more dangerous. With that said, if you're using the headphones at appropriate volumes, no the amp won't damage the headphones just because it's capable of damaging the headphones.
