Amps don't do something majorly with portables unless you are tuned to hearing minute changes or need extra dbs. While an amp gives more dbs, it also pulls out the details in the music so less db is needed to hear it. A better amp offers better soundstage, better dynamics at lower volume and nice features like bass boost, crossfeed, high/low impedance switch.
Larger driver hps will benefit from an amp more than buds/iems.
