SONY MDR-XD100 -- need amp?
So I have SONY MDR-XD100 headphones, which I use to listen to classical music on my PC. I just plug them straight into the audio jack. Question is whether the sound will be significantly improved by a headphone amplifier? If not, something else? Classical music tends to be pretty quiet, especially some of the old recordings, so I turn up the volume, and the sound often comes out distorted at the higher volumes.
I didn't spend a lot for the headphones, so I don't want a high-end amplifier. I am looking for a budget-friendly way to improve (not perfect) my sound quality.
Suggestions are welcome, and if my quest is in vain, just say so...
