What headphones or IEMs are you using? What DAP? Why do you believe you need an amp? Why not get better IEMs instead?

will amping be an overkill?


Depends with the t50p.  Out of my Zune HD I think they sound find without an amp (which is nice to not carry one more piece of equipment during the summer) but out of the ipod, I felt LOD + amp was good (like a 4-7% improvement).  But I don't really anything in the list that would get a big improvement with an amp.  But that's my 2 cents, ymmv.

I'd rather go with used Move/2Move/3Move, MiniBox E+ or some other top portable amp. There is used 2Move in FS section for $155+shipping, for example. Skylab mega thread is must read when buying portable amp.
