I recommend using your phone only as a source and buying an external DAC/Amp. I use the EarStudio ES100 MK2. I also recommend buying better cables such as Hart Audio Cables. EarStudio ES100 MK2 Bluetooth Receiver/USB DAC/Headphone Amp https://earstudio.store/products/es100
https://www.amazon.com/EarStudio-ES100-24bit-High-Resolution-Bluetooth-Unbalanced/dp/B078H4YD2L Hart Audio Cables has a Sennheiser specific headhone cable. HC-5: Dual Senn Balanced Headphone Cable Interconnect Options for Cable Only, 1/4", 3.5mm, Male 4-pin XLR, 2.5mm, 3.5mm 4 pole or 4.4mm https://hartaudiocables.com/collections/headphone-cables/products/hc-5-dual-senn I chose the Cable Only option and then selected longer interconnect cables for all of my output types. For mobile use I chose a couple shorter 3.5mm TRS and 2.5mm TRRS interconnect cables with 90 degree angle connectors. https://hartaudiocables.com/collections/interconnects The really nice thing I like about Hart Audio Cables is that they are modular. Check them out!

I can tell you that even my nokia 5130 Xpressmusic from the last almost 2 decades can drive this headphone, it can play music with my Nokia as loud as with my Motorola Moto X 2014. I didn't look the specs of each phone but definitely they play very loud. Unless you got hearing loss, both phones can easily deliver power to the 58X and without changing the frequency response at all. Otherwise, with moderate hearing loss for example then yes you need an amp in order to reach more loudness.

Can your nokia 5130 drive hd58x loud enough playing instrumental music like, for instance, Skryabin - Prelude in E-Flat Major, Op. 45 No. 3?

Depends on your phone. But yes most likely. Using a portable amp will make any phone battery last longer.

Yeah , Baby ! LG G8 Kicks ass and drives them nuts , sounds strong enough on 35-50 volume knots out of 75 with that HI-FI QUAD DAC activated. Works fine on my Meizu 15th too , since it's so sweet , but even finer when external DAC attached . The short answer is Yes , preferable when your device has a decent DAC in it with AMP built in .

TL;DR The better the quality of you device's DAC, the better the 58X will respond. No need for amps on this one.

Short answer: Yes. Long answer: They won’t sound like the $160 you paid for and you will also need to crank up the volume quite a bit.

I disagree, conditionally. There are phones out there with good headphone amps, like the LG V-series and current G series. They require no external amping and would output great music with these cans, 150 ohms isn't beyond most phones for that matter. You can also get something like a FiiO BTR5 and those will rock these hard especially if you get the optional 2.5 mm balanced cable.

Abolutely works amazing with my LGv40. A small portable amp will keep the battery from getting emptied faster than a leaky bucket.

I have an aging LG G4 and it works with my phone.

It depends on your phone and what you consider "working". I can get decent sound from MY phone but why? I would not use these outside of the home and if I'm home, I would not listen to my phone.

As everyone else has said, yes. Ideally you'd have an LG G6/G7/G8 or V20/30/35/40/50 for that extra output power, but my S8 will drive them if asked.
