Doubling the impedance makes the headphones 4 times quieter, so they're be 6dB quieter then whatever hypothetical headphones JK98 mentioned.

Adding an amp will let you increase the volume more to compensate. If its worth it depends on how loud you want to go. Try it and see if they get loud enough for your tastes, and if not, buy an amp.
