Default Akai EIE Pro or Lexicon I-O|22 for AKGQ 701 [Specs inside]

Hello

I have a pair of AKG Q701 and right now I need an audio interface for my computer.

The interfaces I have in mind are the Akai EIE Pro and the Lexicon I-O|22.

Considering the specs of each unit, which one would be the one best compatible with the Q701?

The specs vary on the way they are presented on both units, and i'm not sure i totally understand them.
I really wanted the Akai EIE Pro for all its extra features, but from my understanding i could run into problems if i turn the headphone volume up too much. Could anyone confirm this please?
The Power the Lexicon can output for 50Ω seems to mean that that will be plenty sufficient to feed the Q701, correct?

Here are the specs available online for the Q701 and both units
