Those cans don't require amping but if you really want one go for the Fiio E10 if 80 bucks is your budget.

No, the 558 doesn't "need" an amp, but it does benefit from one. A small Fiio like the E 07K gives modest improvement. I use a small hybrid DAC/amp, the Aune T1 which brings out the best in these. Take a look at this thread for more suggestions:http://www.head-fi.org/t/573899/sennheiser-hd518-hd558-hd598-appreciation-thread .

Asus Xonar DG (PCI) sound card, $26.80 and there is a $10 mail in rebate this month.

Comes with Dolby Headphone Surround Sound and a basic headphone amplifier.

 

Next setup would be the Creative Sound Blaster Z (SB1500 or SB1502) sound card, $100, but has gone on sale for as low as $65.

Comes with Headphone Surround Sound and a better DAC & amp, then the Xonar DG.
