Do I have to power this with a separate DAC or can I plug this directly into my iPhone 6 and not lose as much sound quality?

You'll get a cleaner signal if you use an external DAC (or, in my case, a dedicated audio player like the Hiby R3), but they're pretty sensitive IEM's and you should be able to power them off your phone no problem.

You should be fine to power this straight from an iPhone - the internal audio on the iPhone 6 is actually quite good, and these are sensitive/efficient enough to not need any extra power. If you hear any sort of hissing noise in the background, though, you may want to consider a dongle or DAC/amp (I think you'll be fine though).
