Headphone amp for laptop computer

more for movies with a netbook but could be in this category (laptop gaming).

Tried to watch some movies while traveling in a couple different turboprops but even using the earbuds with the silicone caps, volume from a Asus netbook was too low (levels okay with same earbuds and a iPod nano).

Quick search found a couple amps but rather expensive (here and here) any suggestion from personal experience for something cheaper (max say $50) that work.

More sensitive headphones may be all that is required. Better models of headphones usually have sensitivity listed in the specs. You should be able to get some good headphones in the $20-$40 range.
