Is the sound quality better if you use the P5s with a standalone DAC/amp, connected to an iPhone?

I know the P5s are made for iPhone and they have a high sensitivity rating. I am curious if there's some enhancement with a separate DAC/amp...

    It is better, although the iPhone with P5s, by themselves, sound very close to using a standalone DAC/amp with them.

  • Being that the P5's are made for iphone listening they still are High End in audio and being that their specs and history of the company connecting them to a DAC/AMP will enhance the audio experience.
