I bought DT 880 pros (250 ohm) headphones. 
 
I plugged them directly into my pc's onboard sound; the volume went plenty loud but the sound was crap.
I then plug them into a UDAC-2 that i got for $50, and it sounded much better and they are actually enjoyable.
They sound ok through my phone (nexus 4). The bass is loose and the overall sound is not as clear and i can only listen at night when it's very quiet but it's acceptable. 
 
I been looking at the O2+Objective or the Magni+Modi
 
My question is: Do I really need them? How much of an improvement will they make?

The Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z sound card ($85) can drive 250-Ohm headphones.
