It depends on how loud you want it to be. It will be plenty to make them sound good, but there could also be a situation where you want to listen to music louder and it just won't go.

I have used them with AudioEngine D3 USB DAC\AMP, which is comparable to the Dragonfly. They sound nice and load enough, but it does not drive them all the way. Sometimes you want loader.

I use these with a Pixel 3a without an amp and achieve adequate volume. I suspect a small dac/amd would not struggle to drive these.
