Should i even bother with these if i don't have a DAC/AMP setup? Can you even run these off an onboard realtek chip?

Simple answer that I've seen floating around is no. You might be able to use them, but they won't sound good. Unfortunately, I can't tell you anything about DAC/Amp set ups since I'm an audiophile scrub, and have no experience with them at all. Maybe get some help from the good people at Headfi.com, they are great with headphones.

Good luck getting the best out of these using your unamped phone.

Can't find anything in my search. Link please? Regardless though they will perform better on a dedicated amp.

you never get the "best" out of headphones not connected to further hi-fi tech. Yet this will definitely run with every modern smartphone - however, these cans are not even made for mobile use, they are quite huge and not really what you want to wear on the go.

Right, but these aren't for use "on the go" for me. It just so happens that Storing all my music on the sd card in my m8 is the way I prefer to listen to my music, So,while no,this won't be "on the go" by any means..but certainly an easy way to do things:)

this is bull... they will still sound like great headphones, yet I even doubt you listen to music recording, which is even intricate enough to make use of those layers.
