The 339 is a gorgeous sounding OTL amp, especially with the HD 650. I can vouch for the Tung-Sol 5998 as I use it in my Crack/Speedball. They are expensive, but the bump in detail and resolution is truly significant.
 Wouldn't it make more sense to just get the K7XX from Massdrop? I'm out of the whole K7-whatever-loop, but aren't they essentially the same thing?
Personally, I haven't owned my HD800 long but in all my time reading about them on head-fi I can't recall any problems with the HD800 that weren't attributed to user error and/or carelessness.
Good god! Very sorry I mentioned people selling the NIB HD598 on the classifieds guys...
The demo pair I am using right this moment from the HiFiMan tour sounds bright-ish running balanced on the Sonett 2. Again, it varies from track to track.   And I'm digging them more and more...
I gotta admit I'm a little jelly I missed out on that deal. Not that I need them, but that price! Funny a couple of NIB HD 598's have popped up in the classifieds for ~$150. Seems a bit dodgy...
No that's never been an issue for me. It's completely dead silent on my desktop and laptop.
^ HRT Music Streamer II+ ...check out my sig. I use it with all my amps including Bottlehead Crack. I've heard several expensive DACs at head-fi meets and I've never felt the need to upgrade from the MSII+ EVER.
I've always been a HD 700 apologist, still one of my favorite headphones for IDM, but since I've had a lot more time the the HD 800 I've realized that the HD 700 really sounds more akin to a $300-$400 headphone. I could see why people that once paid closer to the original MSRP would have polarizing views of the HD 700. The HD800 really does run circles around it, no question...but the HD 700 does have great bass and I'd argue more comfortable (becuase of its smaller size)....
Careful, you're bound to get a tongue lashing...
