Headphone amps

Hi guys

I'm interested on the quality and build of headphone amps, mainly the ones driven by cell phones. I must admit that the iphone amp gives me great pleasure on the move but I wondered how they're built and does the A/D conversion play a part in it?

are most headphone amps that you find in phones and CD Walkmans ICs?
If so how do I get to know which ones are used and how they work?

Thanks for your time.

For an iPhone, I would get a Dragonfly

Wow! That looks good. The iPhone headphone out sounds good already so I can only imagine how the stick will sound.

Thanks for that John. Didn't even know that existed.
