I was wondering, do you need an amp for good headphones? i mean, 80$ to 150$ headphones? I only had basic heaphones *_*

I mean, if i get high end headphones,will my soundcard do the job? (audiobox USB)or you need special hardware?

You only *need* an amp for higher impedance headphones that don't get loud enough without them. It doesn't really matter what they cost. Some $100 headphones need an amp, some $300 headphones don't.

My headphones are low impedance but still benefit from an amp.

So it depends on the headphone.

I have a 32 Ohms Audio-Technica and it doesn't require a headphone amp, but Jake is right, if they are 80 Ohms you probably should invest in one.
I would say that anything above 36 Ohms will most likely require one.
