Do I need a DAC for the O2 Amp to work?

Just got my hd 6xx's and so far they have been great. With a budget of 100$ I am not looking for anything fancy but something that can properly drive my headphones. I was looking at the O2 headphone amp from mass drop but does this need to be paired with a DAC. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The technical answer to your question is yes. You could always get its companion DAC, the ODAC. It's more like $150 but will improve sound a LOT. Otherwise get a Schiit Modi 2.
