Otherwise, in order to help you, we'll need to know: the headphones you use and your budget.
I have the Xonar DG, and while it has decent amp out for headphones, I need something to control volume/bass/treble (not the software). I am replacing the in-line volume control cord.

I am also planning on replacing the headphones soon as well, so this should work for a general pair. Maybe going the Koss ProDJ100 Headphones (with different pads) or perhaps the NVX Audio XPT100. I have yet to decide.

For the budget... well anything over $50 is more than I want to spend. If it is gonna cost that much I may just re-purpose my old Sony STRDE597 receiver to be my headphone amp.

For under 50$, have a look on ebay. Not many amps with treble/bass controls though.

Either a chinese thing (plenty of ac powered ones on sale, especially some using tpa6120a, which is a good chip for a start).

Or an used amp geared towards musicians such as the art headamp (at the limit, the berhinger ha400).

Edit: that assumes you don't want to diy ?
