Thank you both, but can you be sure based on what I've described that it's the amp and not the headphones? At very low volume levels they seem to be working, but anything past 70% of volume and I can start to hear the distortion regularly when the treble spikes.

Of course I can't be sure without having the equipment here, but nothing you are describing sounds like a headphone fault.
If you need more confidence by having others tell you the same thing, post in the STAX thread, folks there will be happy to help.
I appreciate the advice and am eager to resolve this one way or another. I'm waiting to hear back further from Sennheiser and have a message out to Drew at Moon Audio, but am leaning toward reterminating. I'll wait a few days and keep looking for an adapter, which would be the quickest way to test it. Wondering if there is a way to rent an adapter? Would be happy to pay for a few hours of use + shipping both ways.
I received my HE60s back from Moon Audio, reterminated to STAX pro bias and the distortion is completely gone. Drew did a very nice job with these. I am finally getting a chance to hear these. Thank you to all those who offered advice.
