I just picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 880 Premiums (600 Ohm). Would this be good to get me started? Any reason to consider the O2 + SDAC over this one?
Firstly, this is more than just enough to be getting started. Like you can see around here a lot of people (myself included) started with the FiiO E10K which is a great starter DAC/AMP in my opinion. The O2+SDAC is also a great option, but as far as I can tell, the O2 compared to the DX3 Pro is going to be slightly less powerful for a pair of 600 ohm headphones (I can't find measurements for 600 ohms on the DX3 Pro but as far as I was able to find, people say that it could get above 110 dB in high gain).
In general, this is a great combo in my opinion. It has plenty of good reviews, plus it's a small package DAC/AMP combo, with a pretty decent DAC and a Bluetooth receiver, and it's legitimately like 30-50 bucks off right now (With all of the 11/11 sales going on right now, you'd usually see it for 200 or like 180 here so it's a pretty darn good price).
