Changeable DAC filters are pretty useless TBH. It doesn't have any effect on the sound. Just a brickwall band limiter or any filter really would suffice. An EQ would be a much better feature to have because of it's obvious and immediate results.
The impact of 'style' EQs is certainly quite obvious, and that's why EQ as a whole has such a bad reputation. A fully-adjustable parametric EQ, on the other hand, allows carefully-targeted changes to balance the response of your headphones. Adjusting the parameters properly is quite fiddly, though, and requires some careful listening.
The next best thing is the bass/treble filters I suggested, which most people find easier to use.
