As everyone on Head-fi has no idea what audio equipment you have, or that your going to plug the DT770s into, not easy to answer your question.
But yes, the DT770 Pro 80-Ohm headphones do sound their best when used with a headphone amplifier.
The Fiio E11 ($62.99, Micca combo) is the least amount of cash I think you should spend for driving the DT770 Pro 80-Ohm.
Also get a Fiio L cable ($10)to connect the Apple's LOD port to the line-input on the E11.
As long as your willing spend cash for an amplifier, might as well stick to the 80-Ohm.
If only all problems could be fixed with Maple syrup.
