Yes, a dac and amp will have a vast improvement on your sound quality as a general rule.

It depends on what level of SQ you are aiming at. You don't need either dac or amp just to get sound from your cans.

 

I also have a pair of HD598, and they sound much better with a dedicated dac/amp, than directly from the pc/laptop.

If this is your first high end headphone, you will probably be very pleased without a DAC or amp. But getting a DAC and an amp will make them sound even better. I'd say use them straight from the laptop for a while, then get a DAC and amp later.
