It won't increase your volume(well they can but I assume you don't want to be deaf)but will it make your headphones sound better maybe. If you buy much better headphones and a great headphone amp, sure it might sound better but plan on spending a lot of money.

No it won't... but it'll make your volume be increased
you should buy/use it only if you are not enough pleased of your volume... but the shure srh750dj should be a good one...

My friend and I had the same question as you have and we even had an argument about that issue and in the end we have found the unequivocal answer.
So let me tell you that you can save your money and spend it on other things if "making your sound be better" is your issue, because we searched and found out and even checked by our own and amp can only increase you volume and your volume only
hope I have helped and you won't do any mistake ;)

My friend is still sceptical about this subject and still belives that an amplifyer will make the sound.
I would appreciate more comments

Listen to thee_prisoner, Jastin and Bobby... they have told you already the answer why do you keep asking ?
I have a computers lab on New York, one of the most popular in the city and as a person who deals with those kind of things every day (amp also of curse) I can tell you one and for once that amp should (and its only purpose) is to increase your volume...

hope you got it and won't ask for more comments because you got enough...
