I run the GMP 8.300 D Pro's and the DT880 Pro's from my Little Dot MK IV modified to run 6DJ8 type tubes, currently using a Voskhod 6Н23П.

I enjoy a wide variety of music genre's and both headphones pair quite nicely with the LD.

I personally would go with the GMP 400, I prefer them over the DT880, these seem to have slightly better detail and spaciousness.
These are great for any genre and as you already have a nice tube amp, these will reward you with excellent sound.
These don't have the hardest hitting bass, that's why the tube amp helps bring out a bit more body. But out of all of my headphones, the GMP 400 gets the most head time at home. Still amazes me how good they are, for the price as well. Just shows many underdog headphones are a lot better than the well known brands.

Would you please make a comparison between GMP 400 and Soundmagic HP200 ?

Had a quick session A/Bing the HP 200 and GMP 400

 

The GMP 400 are more airy and detailed.

 

The HP 200 are more intimate and in your face, also slightly more impact in the lows and a little more body.

 

Both are excellent headphones. HP 200 are heavier but very comfortable, the GMP 400 are more comfy and lighter

Thank you, Ostewart. Which one do you like better as regards vocals and headstage?

Vocals HP-200 slightly thicker (GMP 400 with a nice tube amp will bring out the body in the mids)

Head stage the GMP 400 wins as it has a more airy and spacious sound.
