Gentlemen,
 
I love Jazz. I have a great collection, but most of the files are mp3's that have been compressed using the best tools available (EAC, variable bit rate, etc).
 
I love Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke. That music usually comes with a hiss.
 
I also love Coltrane, Lee Morgan, Mingus. That music is normally of a better quality.
 
I listen to music on my desktop. My motherboard is an ASRock H97M-ITX. It has ELNA audio caps.
 
I am interested in headphones. My budget is ~$150. Willing to spend a bit more if it is worth it.
 
My other question is: will I need an amp?
 
I'm sorry for all the noob questions. Trying to catch up but would love some guidance.
