I would just stick with it. If you want "more" from the DT990, then equalize it to suit whatever taste you have.
You could get an external amplifier and use the E10 as a DAC. But frankly, you'd have to probably go into the $200~300 range amplifiers for this to even start to matter. Yea, you could get the $99 Magni or the $150 O2. But in all seriousness, you probably won't hear a difference that actually is appreciable. Beyers are too efficient for amps to make a big difference I find. Even the 600ohm Beyers are very easy to power.
