If you want headphones to play louder, you will have to connect them to some sort of amplifier. If you want to go cheap-and-dirty, rip open a set of powered speakers and connect your headphones to the speaker lines. If you want a more refined system, there are many Instructables about building amplifiers.

A bit of warning: if you have headphones amplified too much, besides risking hearing damage, you also may blow out the headphone speakers-they're not intended to be incredibly loud.
some speakers have headphones socket. this socket is powered from the amp too
But usually not as deafeningly loud as the main speaker. :P
i learned the loud way that only usually and not allways

this is a cheap and easy to build audio amp you could plug in in between your headphones and laptop. USB power is probably a good possibility as this is a low power circuit or you could use a 9V battery. http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/richardo/practiceamp/index.html
