Sold, thank you for your interest.
I'm looking for a small-footprint "transportable" Amp/usb-DAC unit that will pair will with HD800s. Budget can extend, but I would love to keep it under the $1000 mark. Currently I am looking at: Woo WA7: Tube amp, very beautiful with a 32/192 - $900 (a little on the pricey side) ALO Pan Am: Tube amp with a nice 24/96 - $600 (good price but will probably need the handy and expensive "passport" battery) Schiit Magni amp + Modi DAC: SS amp and USB DAC  - $200...
Sennheiser's open-back range (e.g. HD558, 5xx) are known for delightfully smooth, detailed, and forward mids. Anything below mid-bass is non-existent and highs are rolled off quite early with little extension. They will be well under $200 and you can easily find a deal on them most of the time.
Yeah, I'll post one up in a couple hours. I'm fiddling with my camera since the battery stopped working or something.
My recent acquisition of custom-colored HD800 headphones from Colorware. And yes, they sound as good as they look.                                 This thread post is to give people an idea of how the HD800s actually look as opposed to the extremely photoshopped and retouched photos from their website.    I do not claim to be a good photographer....

off to eBay at 0.99 no reserve
iPod Classic 160gb (2nd rev) > iBasso D4 "Mamba" > VSonic GR07 I approve of the combo's synergy and performance. VSonic really needed a boost from the D4 Mamba (even if easy to drive). iPod headphone out jack is absolutely terrible - flattens soundstage, bass rolloff, slightly harsh highs with little detail anyways. D4 brings out the warmer lows and a MUCH more articulate, sweet treble. Mids are slightly less in quantity compared to the iPod.   Great value combo...
Don't take full-sized headphones to the gym. Won't work out. M50s in my experience were terrible and the leather pads aren't as breathable as the HD25 velour, but even that isn't saying too much.   Try IEMs for exercise.   Otherwise, it seems like you would need an energetic signature that seems to fit the HD25s very well. They are $200 and are a do-it-all headphone.
