    When my HD650 was new, it had the death grip too. Each night I left it clip on the box it came in. After 2 months it loosen up. Now it's one of the most comfortable headphone I've used. The most comfortable being the HD800.

    I don't recall that you have tried a pair of WE 421A coupled with TS BGRP. Way to go! LOL

    Nah, I'll leave that for you to try. Too rich for my wallet. :)

    If you like 5998, you should give it a try. I like it.

    Nah TS 5998 is good enough to my ears. WE 421A is hardly seen and NOS ones cost more than a mid price tube amp. Used ones are just too risky for a high price.

    As I said, GEC 6as7g is the last of the power tubes I'll buy. I'm still open on 6sn7.

    Swapping between GEC 6080 and Bendix 6080wb, I find the Bendix really appealing. It's all about system synergy. Both Yggy and HD800 are very revealing and I find myself reaching for tubes with a meatier and more textured presentation.

    Still so new after at least 100 hours usage. I use the 5998 more sparingly than the Bendix 6080wb.

    These are all great tubes.

    I see you online all the time. What's your timezone? LOL

    Sydney Australia. 1:52pm on a lazy Sat afternoon where the skies are cloudy and rain clouds looming over head..... and the music is great. Dang, this setup is rocking my boat.

    Keith Don't Go..... please don't go !

    I ain't buying any more expensive 6sn7 and 6as7 because one day I'm going to get a 2A3 tube amp that looks blue. :ksc75smile:

    That's because I'm keeping an eye on you. :wink:

    Now I shall write my novel....

    It's call 'A man and his improbable journey into head-fi'.

    Chapter 1
    April 2015, I bought my 1st head-fi gear - Aune T1 a dac/amp with a tube. I was intrigued that it has a small tube. Reminds me when I was young and my dad had a receiver with tubes. The Aune T1 purchase taught me not every purchase is a bliss. When the amp came, I quickly unpack it and was eager to try it. Pop in the tube and pop in the cage and flick the switch behind to power on. Except nothing happen.... the switch wouldn't move !!!! They had given me an Aune T1 with a dummy switch that is cemented. I contacted the seller and send it back and they express post another unit to me, faster than lightning. Guess what? Same problem !!! I swore that was it - I'm done with head-fi before I had even begun. As history would have it, I continue on to this day..... big mistake. :face_palm:

    Chapter 2 .... to be continued.

    It's not perfect. You need to center the GEC sticker.

    No the timeframe is next year to order the blue tube amp. With a returning Elise, I'm not getting any new amp this year. I'm afraid the Rag is no longer in my sight. :)

    Have an incoming new pair of gec 6as7g remember? :smile_phones:
