The answer is yes if you use iPhone, iPAD, or MacBook Pro Here is are measured numbers Source: Qubuz. Foy Vance "Make it Rain". - Track encoded: 24 Bit 44 kHz Max Volume all devices except XD05 Plus
  • iPhone 7 Plus with Lighting to Headphone dongle - 76 dB with Peak of 96 dB
  • iPad 6 Headphone Adapter - 85 dB average with a peak dB of 107
  • iPad 6 with Lighting to Headphone dongle - 83 dB average with a peak dB of 104
  • MacBook Pro Headphone jack 85 dB average with a peak dB of 110
  • MacBook Pro xDuoo XD05 Plus 3/4 volume Gain Level 1 - 86 dB average with a peak dB of 107

Yes. Best on laptop and PC because the power output is high enough (in general). With a phone; they will work, but it's like 50% of the dynamism of the sound is missing, and they won't get very loud.

It does depend on what phone you have. The LG-G6, G7, and G8 have good enough and strong enough ampf for good sound. So do the LG-V30, V40 and V50 Phones. Most phones that still have headphone jacks, don't have powerful enough amps for these; they are meant only for efficient IEM's and Earbuds. Any phone can power them if you add an external Amp, or a DAC/AMP. These amps can either be powered by the phone, or powered by their own internal battery. The ones powered by the phone (by usb cable) will drain the phone faster than regular use. The ones with battery inside take no power from the phone.

The 6xx will work with a phone/laptop/pc as long there is a headphone out. The problem is something like a phone or laptop may not be able to drive the headphones thus meaning they might not have enough power or poor sound quality. This is why a dedicated amp/dac is advised.

Depending on your hardware, potentially. Being a pair of fairly high impedence headphones (150 ohm), they require more power to run then the average pair of headphones. If your hardware can't drive it, it won't sound good, and you'll need to purchase a headphone amplifier for it. If your hardware (motherboard, soundcard, etc) is capable, you don't need anything else. Some people find a dedicated amp to give better audio quality, and again, it's dependent on your hardware/preferences. In addition, some people (like myself) like to have a dedicated amp to get louder volumes and have a physical dial to control audio with.

By asking this question, I assume that you are asking whether you can plug these headphones directly into the headphone jack of your phone/laptop/PC. The answer is yes (qualified by the fact that a number of phones now require a dongle), but the sound may be very quiet and not the best. There are a number of small headphone amplifier/DACs available that would help; I personally use an Audioquest Dragonfly with my phone and laptop.

These absolutely will but they will be quieter than powered headphones. For a computer or other device, I plug mine into a Scarlett 2i2 amp and they work beautifully.

If you want to use them without an amp, the HD58X would be a better choice. Reviewers have stated that with an amp, the HD6XX is capable of better sound quality however.

Yes these will work with any device provided that the headphones are connected to the device via an amplifier that can handle high impedance output. Otherwise they will "work" but you may not be able to hear them well even at the loudest volume. Many amplifiers on this site should work as long as they can handle at least 300 ohms. You may need a pre-amplifier, but some amps come with a pre-amp built in.

Yes, but it'll be very quiet. I tested this on my iPhone and the noise of traffic drown out the volume of the 6XX. Keep in mind that this is a 300 ohm headphone; it was not design to be used without amplification!

Honestly, really depends on your source and desired volume. The myth is they require a dedicated dac and/or amp. This isn't always the case. The best thing to do is to give them a try and see if they work on your given device.
