I want a good sounding headset so the DT990 pro is the best i found for the price and same with the Sound Blaster X-Fi HD. Will this amp make the 990s sound better and is it a good amp?

Specs look great...If sound cards states it can handle 330 Ohm then those 250 will sound good...Im assuming you will have to crank the volume a little bit though...

Heres a full review about it...

Check Amazon for headphones, they often have great prices on them...I bought an AKG-Q701 for almost half price there..

"Impedance is opposition to the flow of current. The higher impedance, the less current will flow. Impedance is measured in Ohms, indicated by the Greek sign Omega (Ω). Earphones and headphones range from 8 Ohms to 600 Ohms or higher. The audio source (the headphone output) also has an impedance rating. To obtain maximum power transfer (all usable power from the source reaches the earphones) impedances should match. However, that's rarely the case. When impedances don't match, there is either a loss of voltage or of current, in other words, a loss of power. "

So, What's the impedance of that Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD?

It says that it can handle 330 ohm studio headset, but i'm not sure. And are the 600 gonna sound better than the 250 ones? If so, please explain how much better it is and a good amp than can power the headset for under $200.
