So I got brand new DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm headphones coming from Corsair void pro wireless ones...The problem is I think they are too quiet,for example when I played a game on corsair ones I had the volume on around 30 and on these I have to have it at around 60...I read 80 Ohm are much more powerful and also louder so that's why I'm questioning myself if I need an amplifier or something...

80ohm headphones are not usually louder. They are quieter, because the impedance (80ohms) restricts the flow of energy through them.
A volume setting of 60 vs 30 doesn't concern me. If the headphones sound good with that setting I would say go for it. If not, then you could look at getting a headphone amp -- https://www.themasterswitch.com/best-headphone-amps
