Default Recommended Portable Headphone Amp for Cowon S9 + Shure SE530

Hi guys. Tentative moments are here as I am making my first ABI post. So go easy on the content if something is amiss.

The Cowon S9 16GB will be with me very soon. But I have come across headphone amps as a useful option for increasing musical satisfaction.

Is there any reason to spend the extra cash on getting a portable headphone amp for this already decent duo - Cowon S9 + SE530?

I have not had much experience with headphone amps in the past. I have only tried the Fiio E5. This little amp provided the extra oomph that was needed to boost the sound level, bass and clarity of the weak Iphone output. It does the job but how would a more expensive portable headphone amp compare with the E5? i.e Little Dot MKI, CMOY etc

Does anyone know any dealers that allows the buyer to trial/test a headphone amp before buying?

I would love to receive some feedback from you guys.
