The headphone out on the itouch (and all i devices) lacks the power to drive a lot of high end/non portable headphones. A line out cable/dock will bypass that, but you'll be listening straight through the DAC with no volume control. It's normally used to connect to an external headphone amp. TBH you won't need one unless you plan on using harder to drive headphones with your itouch.
