Yeah, I'm wondering whether to get a HDVA 600 first or just wait and get a GS-X MKII.

Maybe You can consider the DNA Sonett 2 although I never compared the two amps myself.

I heard the v200 during meet conditions and thought it was pretty good but not great with the 800. I thought the Vali was about on par for a fraction of the cost. My advice, save for the gs-x.

I'm using the HD800 with the v200 and v800 dac. This combo is very good. I wouldn't call it smooth as it is very detailed imo. But I'd like to hear the HDVA600 + v800 pair as well. Perhaps this combo is even more detailed with wider soundstage. Also I have not heard the v200 on any other source, but from what I heard the v200 really shines with the v800 dac.

I'm waiting to get the first impressions on the new v281 HPA. Excited about the balanced output and how it compares to the single end output of the v200. Basically the overall improvements to the v200.

 

My other headphone is the hd 580. It's used mostly at the office. I wouldn't dare to bring the hd800 to the office in my backpack.

I used a felt shoe bag for my beige Sennheiser 598s, only to have its brown color rub off on the beige edges of the headphone over time. Fortunately in this case, it matches the ear pads, but I would suggest caution in using shoe bags.

To carry my HD800's to the office and back I use the case my Audeze LCD-XC's arrived in. Admittedly it's an expensive method of picking up a good carry case!

I bought a pelican case from Amazon that cost much less.

Yes it might be expensive, but you own some of the best cans available. I plan on getting the HD800 and the Audeze LCD-XC, sometime next year.
