Our expert says:
Using the dumbbells does isolate the muscle more, obviously. However, remember that with a barbell, you'll be using both arms for control and stability, so there is certainly some merit to using them. I'd say a mix of the two is good - you'll feel that when you do something like a bicep curl with the bar and the dumbbell - they are best used together.
