Amazon offers the Audioquest Dragonfly USB DAC (digital-to-analog converter) / headphone amplifier for $99 + free super saver shipping. I own this device and can vouch for it… it delivers AMAZING sound for the price (and size).
With plug-and-play USB 2.0 capability and native support for 24-bit/96kHz audio files, your headphones will sound cleaner and smoother compared to the built-in headphone out of your laptop or desktop computer.
Note this is the 1.0 version of the Dragonfly. Audioquest has since released version 1.2 which 1) updated the circuitry between the DAC chip and the analog output stage has been refined, and 2) a “fortified” DAC power supply. Both of these tweaks allegedly improve the sound quality. I wouldn’t say this is a dealbreaker though. Version 1.2 is selling for $150, so at $99 this thing is a no-brainer!
