Any of you guys got both? Which do you prefer, coz I'm with the...

The phones I've tried in the same league as the HD600's are DT880's 600 ohm, and Denon d5000's, neither of them suited my tastes for reasons I can't really describe.
I've tried a bunch of phones, I keep going back to my HD600's for some reason, hopefully the 325's will be keepers.
I just ordered a pair of sr325is, I'll offer some impressions in comparison to my HD600's if anyone is interested. The HD600's have been my main cans for almost 3 years, I'll be running both out of my M3.
My WA3+ shipped out today just as I picked up some IBM 5998's, a RCA 6as7g, and some RCA 6dj8's, can't wait. How important is it that the drive tubes be a matched pair? What happens if they aren't?

Tube rolling is a big deal to me. I'm sure this has been discussed but how do you like the Sylvania 7236 that Jack sells with the wa3+?, I'm thinking of getting one for mine.
Quote: Originally Posted by TheStixter I mainly listen to hip-hop/rnb and will be using the Beyerdynamic 600ohms phones to monitor, record, and track vocals. Says on the site, WA3+ is better for lower impediance. So is WA better for high impediance? Since there's a lot of bass in rap music, I'd like an OTL that really delivers there. Would upgrading to the NOS tubes make a difference with this? Suggestions? I recently bought a wa3+ and asked Jack...
