Short and to the point:
Actually, nope. There isn't anything of better value unless you DIY, (especially with amps). There are other competitors in the 300-450 pricerange, but those are the best. (Both are worthwhile).
You can start anywhere you like, but I'd agree HD 6XX series is a great headphone you'll probably keep for a long time unless you're lusting after something bigger, but all are viable choices. Modifying Grados is very rewarding and the Fostex T50rp amazes once modded... I think HD 600 is best under $400 though. Unless you're into DIY of all kinds, tweaks, and mods.

Why don't you go somewhere to audition some headphones?
Shopping for headphones is fun. If you have a budget for headphones/dac/amp, first pick the headphones then take it from there. Yes, I did read your opening post, but do you still have your 680s? I really could not tell?
Well, you had two "wow' moments so I'm guessing you like the Ultrasone sig. My question was mainly, do you have to sell the HFI-680s to maintain an $800 budget or will you be adding the new headphones?
