RE: Decided on the headphones, need advice for portable amp/DAC

Either amp should do the job, at least on paper. However high impedence Beyer Dynamics are quite hard to drive in practice nevertheless. Fortunately you do not appear to want high sound levels.

Many of the features that the Sound Blaster amp has appear orientated towards Bluetooth connected 'phones however.

I just wonder what sort of "portable" you mean. If it involves using the cans in an environment where there are other people around e.g. commuting or in an office or other workplace then DT 990 Pros would not be a good choice being fully open headphones. You will hear them and, importantly, they will hear you.
