Is it final that I cannot buy RME products to ship to US from m.thomannmusic.com ?. I have never noticed such a restriction before. Wondering if this is something new or a well known restriction across various products.

Aeon Closed have a flat impedance of ~12 ohms, so it's really important your headphone amp has 1 ohm output impedance or less.

Both ADI-2 and Atom do, so both tick that important box.

One cool feature ADI-2 has is Bauer crossfeed DSP, built-in: http://bs2b.sourceforge.net/

I really like Bauer crossfeed DSP with headphones and it's cool that ADI-2 has it built-in, for any input.

I've considered the same combo you have but built-in Bauer crossfeed DSP is enough to make me go with RME.

ADI-2 has other DSP options built-in also. It's quite feature packed.
Actually no , planar headphones don't low output impedance like dynamic headphones. They just need an amp capable of high current.
