Hi guys,


I recently bought Kingston HyperX cloud core KHX-HSCC-BK-FR


http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HyperX-KHX-HSCC-BK-FR-over-ear-Headphones/dp/B010D74WHG/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1455433982&sr=1-1&keywords=kingston+hyperx+cloud

and am quite happy with the quality of it, maybe also because these are the first headphones in which i have added a fair amount of money.

I am happy with the audio i get but since i listen to soundtracks and audio which is mostly (And i mean really ) in flac or more than 320 kbps bitrate, will an external audio DAC provide better audio experience in my headphones ? Currently i use onboard Realtek audio driver. My motherboard is intel DH55TC if that helps.


Thanks.

Not worth it, it's better to spend the money on a set of real headphones just for audio. ssddx probably has a good list of recommendations somewhere, and I'll throw in the Grado SR80 (though they aren't the best in that range)
