What source(s) are you plugging the headphones into?

Portable wise, a Fiio E11 should work for both.

The Fiio E10 can not use it's DAC with the iPhone anyway.

and the E11 amp. is a little better then the E10s

 

For around $13, you can get two spare batteries(BL-5B) and a battery charger for the E11, on eBay.

The Made in China batteries may not hold a charge (mA)  as well as they are listed for, but for the low price you pay, it does not matter.

He can't use the Fiio E17 ($140) DAC with the iPhone, just the amp. part.

And the Fiio E11 is only $65.
