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.

Absolutely. Of course, you need a way to input your headphones 1/8" jack. Most new phones will require an adapter. These have a 150 ohm impedance, so you will have to crank your volume up if you are not using an external amp. Most phones have enough power to drive these. Without an amp though, you're really not hearing the sound quality that the 58X delivers. If you're only looking for headphones to use with your phone, and you're not going to use an external amp, there are many cheaper, low-impedance cans from which to choose. Otherwise, you would just be wasting money on the Jubilees, never benefiting from their potential.

To piggy back on this I'd recommend the SHP9500s. With an impedance of only 32ohms phones can power easy and it has amazing sound for the money.

A fine recommendation. To add, there are simply too many decent to great 32 ohm headphones to choose from, and many well below $100.
