Short answer: Yes.
The price doesn't have to be bad, buy fostex t50rp and any headphone amp will do like a FIIO e17. The t50rp are $129 and well headphone amps can be from $30 to (insert made up super large number). The t50rp also needs new earpads because it comes with real thin uncomfortable pads. I have quite a large collection of audio gear but day to day i use T50rp the most. Its like once you uy a pair there is no point in searching for the perfect headphone anymore because they are good enough.
Oh and welcome to the forum, i think you'll like it here.
I've seen the review of the Fostex t50RP, and stock and a headphone amp, they seem to sound pretty good and solid, interesting technology, i sometimes ask myself why such technologies never catch the general public, just the audiophilies.
