The XM6 is a nice amp, however I think you will miss the Supermacro's sound and flexibility.
I have the HM602 (16 Gb version) and the Westone 2, the combo sounds superb, I can listen for very long hours to this combo. Very satisfying and musical.
I have the HE300 and IMO is a great sounding can, better than the Senn HD580/600. I see charts and they are tempered by what I hear, I go with my ears over the charts but that is just me. BTW, I do not use the stock cable instead I use the OCC HE6 cable terminated in balance 4Pin configuration.   As far as the K550 I cannot comment since I have not heard them.
Be careful, the 6n1p draws almost twice the heater current of a 6dj8/6922.
You are indeed evil! 
I hope my old age does not confuse me this time and I make it to your meet JP#s. Beer, food, and good people! 
Look at the Mapletree Audio amps, IMO they are superb with Grado cans. They can be bought used for $450, personally I prefer the Ear + HD with the 12B4H valves.   http://hollowstate.netfirms.com/
Hi Choo! hope you and your family are doing great. Glad to see you post again.
Samson SR850, like I need another can!  But at $33.99 delivered, what the heck.  
Yes, I listened to it as well as a previous version. My biggest issue with it was that you had to be careful when carrying the amp in your pocket to not accidentally increase the volume. To prevent this you can use a toothpick to "lock the volume knob" . Its sound was fine but IMO the Supermacro was better as well as the Reference. At the time it was the 2nd smallest amp with the Supermicro being the smallest and the BEST sounding amp, IMO of course.   However due to size...
