Its horrible. It just adds a ton of bass to the music, to the point where even the beats headfones on display with the laptop distort, or any other head phones for that matter

I guess if I go with HP Envy laptop I am not paying extra for the beats audio edition. I posted this in the laptop section but being this is in the audio section can you recommend any high quality sound laptops? Not the speakers, but with like a build in sound card, or option so so when i use my headphones it sounds nice.

Edit: Also so the beats audio is for hp only right?

The only reason I wouldn't get a DAC is because it is kind of big.

DAC stands for Digital to Analog Converter. In short, it converts the digital audio file into a hearable (is that a word) analog format, so you can listen on your headphones or speakers. External DACs are desirable because there is little loss in quality going from digital to analog, whereas the DACs on something like a soundcard fair a little worse. The best DACs are external and large, but most people wouldn't be able to notice much of a difference between different quality DACs
