With the DAC2HD is an AMP necessary to listen music on headphones of not?

Hello everybody,

Sorry for this newbie question but I was wondering if an AMP hat is necessary when you want to listen music on your headphones.

I currently plan to connect on the DAC2HD stereo output a 2xRCA male with a 1xJack 3.5 female in order to be able to listen music directly on my headphones (Focal Clear Pro). They are relatively low impedance but I was wondering if the output would be enough or if it was necessary to buy an Amp hat as well.

By the way, do you think that the RCA->Jack cable (gold plated, about 20cm of lenght) would significantly degrade the sound quality or not?

Thank you for your help and have a great evening.
