Agreed on all accounts. Right now I'm planning on getting a Bottlehead Crack as my next purchase and I like the DT880 enough that once I have that I don't think I'll be able to resist picking up a 600 ohm version just to see if if it performs better with the Crack. Although I really don't need two DT880s, I like them so much that both would probably still get use haha. Generally I can avoid unnecessary purchases of cans that are very similar to ones I already have (I still don't have an HD650!) but if there is even a small improvement once I'm plugging into an OTL amp with high output impedance then I'll have to take the plunge with the 600 ohm version. As capable as the DT880 is, its hard not to want to get every bit you can out of them. I'm sure my 250 ohm Pro will work fine with the Crack but it would be interesting to compare the higher ohm version in that scenario.
Once I've got a Crack I may be near the end of my journey (hopefully anyway, for my wallet's sake). I still plan on getting an HD800 at some point (or the T1 if I find that I like it even better) but I'm purposefully procrastinating on that so I don't have to answer to myself for the hole its going to put in my bank account. Oh well, its good to have something to look forward to in this hobby. :)
