i would like to now if i connect my QC35 II via wire jack cable to premium external DAC for example (https://hifimediy.com/uda38pro-usb-dac-es9038pro) i will get better sound or DAC in headphone will still be activated ? Have clean signal path this headphones with cable connection with out digital parts?
I've been wondering as well about purchasing an external DAC for my QC35II. I haven't done so, because if it doesnt work it would be a waste of money. So I seek confirmation as well. My guess is that because the internal DAC converts a digital signal to an analog one, it would be bypassed when using the audio cable. The incoming signal from the cable is already analog, so there's nothing to convert. But I don't know how this interacts with the ANC function.
