I'm looking into getting the Creative Soundblaster E1 amp for around $20. Would that be a good combo for my HD668B? I've read different things on the topic and most say that I wouldn't need an amp for these headphones. One reason is that its impedance is less than 80 ohms (56 ohms I believe). is Is that true? I might upgrade to the Audio Technica ATH-AG1x in the next two days so maybe I would need an amp for those? I might keep my Superlux but I'm not sure. Either way would the Creative Soundblaster E1 be a good buy?

What sources will you be plugging the amplifier into?

No. I just play League of Legends. Why do you think its not worth it? Would it be worth it for the AG1x?
For any headphone you get that costs over $125, I would suggest you get the FiiO Q1 MK II or the Schiit Fulla 2.
Guessing the DAC function in the FiiO and Schiit is better then the laptop's.
But nothing wrong with plugging headphones directly into the laptop.
