Can't help you much with portable amps as I don't have any and only tried a few.  Also, I don't use my TH-600 while I'm out, I usually use efficient headphones like Momentum Over-Ear, MDR-1A or Vmoda XS so the Fiio X1, X3 and X3ii are more than enough.  As for portable amps I really don't want to carry around anything extra, a lot of times I'll just use my Galaxy S5 with the Vmoda XS as even the Fiio DAPs are too much to lug around.  Since you have an X5ii then you might want to look at a Fiio amp, they make holders that will pair the DAP and AMP together so it will be easier to manage.

Good Luck

How bad do these leak sound, really?

Not as bad as say a Grado or HE-400i.  There is a small space about 1.5mm wide that goes around the cup where the sound will leak from.  I'd say it leaks about 15% vs 0% like a M50x.

Thanks!

My local dealer has these headphones at closeout for $450. But the reason it's at closeout is because the model had been discontinued. Is it a wise choice to go for this given there will be practically no warranty (since you can't get replacements or parts after they stop manufacturing the headphones), and given they are supposedly relative fragile, compared to, say the Shure 1540?

You should buy them right away at that great price. You can still get parts because Fostex will continue to make TH900s which use the same frame. But if you use them at home and keep them on a stand they will never break. If you're planning to toss them around then go for the Shure.
