I have igrados for listening to music from my ipod-touch/nexus 4, and I'm considering buying an external DAC to improve the sound quality if possible.

Since igrados are very entry level and not very sensitive, I doubt using an external DAC will make any noticeable impact on the quality. But then I noticed that it uses the same sound drivers as SR60s so there is a possibility of improvement.

Can anybody suggest a decent portable DAC for use?

Firstly, the signal leaving a headphone jack is already in the analog realm... Too late for a DAC. Secondly, I realize you didn't choose to post your question on this site, but it is likely off-topic at AVP.
