    Hello

    I have just bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pros and they work fine with my Apollo Twin MKII

    However, I think the case will be much different in regards to using them with my MacBook Pro...which headphone amplifier would you recommend that is easily portable?

    MacBook Pro is a 2015 model, so has the USB and thunderbolt ports on it

    that usb-c dac + adapter should work well for you. i tried it on my laptop (i have the usb-c port, but i was wondering) and it worked. and it is actually quite good for what it did cost

    Just stick to the UA Apollo amplifier, man. Are you joking? Why would you think a MacBook amp would be better? It's crap. Especially regarding 600 ohm headphones. If the headphones had like 30-40 ohm impedance, then alright, but more impedance always means more flat response, so keep using your Apollo amp, I'm sure it's far better. Also far better than the cheap headphone amps [especially USB ones] they sell on E-Bay. You have all you need to make great stuff. Keep going and don't worry. :wink:

    Cheers!
