Or to a portable headphone amplifier like this one:

I have been using one of these with my iPod for over a year now and the 
improvement combined with good headphones is very noticeable. I don't even 
use high-end headphones, just the usual mid-range Sony DJ headphones (~50-80 

Sure it's bulky and one more box to carry around, but the usual mobile devices 
with their low voltage batteries will probably never be able to drive proper 
headphones with enough current anyway. So all I need on any future mobile 
device is a decent line out.
