High ohm headphone in tablet / phone

I need some help to understand headphones.

Ive been looking at a 250ohm headphone for my pc. There is also a 32ohm version.
But if I connect that headphone to my ipad or phone, there is no way they can drive it, without some sort of amp.

Now my questionn is, do you think the 250ohm would sound like the 32ohm without an amp? Or do I reslly need to buy the headphone two times?

I can power my 250ohm DT1990's with my Huawei P9 lite at 75% volume; can't stand any higher. Amp requirements are greatly exaggerated on the internet, it seems to me.

You'll probably get okay volume out of it, won't sound the same as with a decent amp though.

Why not get lower resistance headphones that will work as well on the desktop as with mobile devices? If you're looking for all around headphones there probably are better choices.

What's your budget, what region are you in, and are you looking for open or closed headphones?

Sorry for late reply.
I had been looking at the DT 770 pro 250ohm.
Its getting good feedback, decent good soundstage? And it is closed.

I dont want to use the 32ohm version for my pc. And having two headphones is just silly for me.

My budget is 200 euro. And I live in EU Ireland.

Some alternatives that could work for both mobile and desktop use are the Shure SRH840, AKG K550MKIII and Audio-Technica ATH-M50x.

The SRH840 and M50 also happen to fold up to make them more portable, which might be convenient. They also all have removable cables, which is a plus over the DT 770.

Maybe look at some reviews and comparisons to see which sound signature suits you best.
