Default Would an amp be a good purchase? (Using a laptop and or sansa clipzip as source)

I own a pair of House of Marley Rebel headphones, which sound great, but I was wondering if buying a small amp would make them sound even better? I am completely new to this world of hifi etc so please forgive me if I seem very newbish as it were. If I could use one, what would you recommend?

Not sure if this info will help but from amazon, these are the features:
  • Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • Sensitivity: 115dB @1kHz
  • Nominal Impedance: 16 ohms @ 1kHz
  • Drive Component: 40mm Moving Coil
  • Input Connection: 3.5mm Stereo
Many thanks!

From looking at those specs, I don't see where an amp would make any difference......they should be easily powered by the Clip Zip or your laptop.
