I'd go for new cans. At this level, a better DAC or amp won't make as large of a difference as a better set of headphones.

sorry for the late reply if i had 300 smackers to spend and in your exact situation i would do exactly this:

used /new beyerdynamic dt 880 250ohm they go for about $200-250  ( has been regarded of one of the best dynamic headphones at its time along with classics such as hd650 and akg k701/2 )

and a FiiO E10, simple. small. sexy.... its literally just plug, play and enjoy. (DAC/AMP)

and stick with just a dac considering you wouldnt be doing to much listening on the go hence why you should leave the portable amp factor out.

so all in all a very nice set of mid-fi cans and a DAC which meets all of your needs, all for about $300 or less. 

P.S. if you have any second thoughts on the portable amp just buy the fiio e6 for about 25 bucks you seriously cant go wrong.
