Looking for a *temporary* alternative to HD-600's -- Bottlehead Crack OTL Amp

post #1 of 3

I hope this thread is in the right place. So, I'm thinking about sending my Sennheiser HD-600's in for a repair, under warranty. They are experiencing intermittent drops in sound on the right side, and it's been getting more frequent. If I end up sending them away, I'd like to get another pair of headphones to listen to while they are being fixed/replaced. I'm not sure how long it will take.

 

My thinking is to get something that offers a different sound signature than the HD-600's... It would be nice if I could find something that pairs up well with my Bottlehead Crack OTL amplifier (best for high impedance), but another option would be to use the on-board amp (BPA2) on my Benchmark DAC2.

 

My budget could go to about $200 ideally, maybe as high as $300. Open or closed designs would be fine. I'd prefer to buy used if possible, but would consider anything really. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

It is said that the Crack is a fine pairing with the DT880 600 ohm version, it's just right on your budget.
