A weakly driven 600ohm will sound worse than a properly driven 32ohm. Just saying. If the only amps you have are the ones on your list, you're doing yourself a huge disservive by getting the 600ohm.
I think the cMoy could drive it, I have an 18V version but yea the 250 would be a better purchase

Well you say that and then Mad Lust says the oppisite, I trust her judgment more tbh, plus I want to get the HE-500 at some point so no reason to get HE 400
In addition I getting the dt990 for mid bass only, I have XB1000 for Sub bass, and once more I've heard that the HE 400 is darker hence it's going to mask the sound a little, which is why the Highs don't seem to "impede" as much
I still say Dt 990 Pro over Pro 900 any and every day, not paying $300+ for something with rolls off like the Pro has, and I'm not a

Yea man seriously look at that, pro 990 has much more bass and doesn't have those insane roll offs like the Pro 900 and He 400, in addition the HE-500 really seems worth the jump in price to me, and I mean that as a replacement for my Dt 880, I do love that flat bass line response in the HE's though! But neither of them are Bass Head cans, in which detail and impact are kings <3
