An amp/dac may improve the quality of "the response" to the recording. It may enhance your listening experience by providing more power/amperage which in turn, may translate to better performance from some equipment.

You only need a DAC if you are using an AMP. The AMP is recommended because powering the 6XX by the headphone jack only doesn't generate enough electrical power to drive the headphones even to moderate volumes for most folks. More expensive AMPs can make the music sound better, but that is subjective.

A dedicated Headphone Amp/DAC insures you have enough power to drive these headphones, 300ohms I believe. And a good DAC will reduce noise and give you just the pure sound of the recording you’re listening to. I use a PS Audio Sprout, also sold through drop.com, but can also be found for great prices through eBay or other resellers.
