Perhaps if you gave the schematic or model of the amp, and the model of the headphones, someone might know something.

16 watt sounds a bit high for headphones, maybe you should try a dummy load with a potential divider on the speaker out, that should keep the impedance but lower the power for headphones. but im not sure about the electret headphones, and how levels will affect them

Are you using an srd-7 adapter with the amp for the stax? If so you will be fine - its an easy load for the amp.

Your amp should power the headphones without a problem.
Be aware that the headphones can reproduce the audio accurately but they can't deliver high sound pressure levels.
