    Recommend a good DAC under $300 used

    The Schiit Modi 3 is often recommended. As are the Topping models. I like the D50s which includes a nice remote, as well as an excellent Bluetooth 5 implementation.

    Are there any over-ear headphones that have a good passive sound cancellation?

    I find the isolation of the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO to be sufficient. It doesn't completely seal everything off, and a lot of it would depend on how it fits you, but I think that is a decent starting point. I have the 80 ohm version. In the US, they can be had for under $130 new if you keep...

    open back under $400?

    Monoprice Monolith THX 887 - Impressions Thread

    Both devices are known for being transparent, so they shouldn't color the sound. As you know, you can optionally use the PE and tone controls within the ADI-2 to adjust the sound curve to your preference.

    I believe the benefit would be the added power to drive difficult to drive headphones that the adi-2 may struggle with. The ADI-2 lacks a balanced amplified output.
