I would go for the HD600 as the best all rounder provided that they are sufficiently amped.

The HE400 sounds much better amped as well.

An Objective 2 is a good starting amp.

It measures well but when I heard it, it was a bit bass light when driving the HD600 which IMO makes them even more neutral.

The HD600 with the O2 still had a nice amount of bass without going overboard.

The Bottlehead Crack was significantly better but it costs $280 I think and you need to build it by yourself. The Matrix Portable was also very nice with the HD600 but it was a bit too dark with the HD650 for me. The Matrix is $350 in Australia and something like $320 in the US.
