Hi, i'm using a BDP-S350 blu-ray player, and the volume via the headphone is quite low, i was thinking to boost it, i'd use a headphone amplifier, however since my headphones are only 30 ohm, a audio interface may suffice, what do you guys think ?

this is the audio interface - https://djcity.com.au/product/behringer-um2-audio-interface/
That is not the use of an audio interface, it connects to a computer with drivers through USB, it's not for just home theater devices. I would get a simpler cheaper headphone amp https://www.amazon.com/Headphone-Amplifier-Portable-3000mAh-Computer/dp/B0832XWVVL?ref_=s9_apbd_onr_hd_bw_bwErZ&pf_rd_r=Z0ERAHKSRE22NHMJBDWQ&pf_rd_p=634368a0-1543-56cd-bd24-cef31e65983f&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=13880161&th=1

How are you connecting the headphones, that player does not have a headphone out. Through the TV headphone out? Or is it a line out?

Blu ray player > RCA to 3.5mm > 6.3mm adapter.

Also i'm thinking of getting this amplifier, what do you think ?

For the record, I run an Audient iD4 with 32-ohm Sennheiser HD439s hanging off them, and the iD4's hardware has absolutely no problem driving them. YMMV though, depending on which interface / combo you plan on getting.

From what I can read, there isn't mentioned a head phone outlet. It may or it may not work, but in general you should look for a product that have an actual head phone outlet.
I had a UM2--they only have a 6.3mm out.
