I do not own an iPod, but I'm guessing they are like your everyday mp3-player.
Earbuds do not have amplifiers in them, one because they are loud enough on their own, second because an amplifier needs an external power source, which it does not have. (imagine putting batteries in your earbuds, the horrors.)

The iPod itself would act as the (somewhat weak) amplifier.
