New Head-fi'er with noob questions

    Guys,
     
    I've been reading headfi for awhile now and decided to take the plunge in building up a quality setup. 
     
    What i've got so far 
     
    DAC - Schiit Gungnir being run from pc via optical spdif, most tracks are from spotify, hdtracks or existing cd collectoin
     
    Mogami 2549 balanced xlr interconnects
     
    Amp - Woo Audio WA22 with the Tung Sol and Sophia upgrades
     
    Headphones
     
    AKG 702 balanced and an HD650 balanced. I've had the HD650 for about 2 weeks and it couldnt be difference from the AKG I have. I like both of the headphones very much for what they bring but am considering investing in another set. 
     
    The short list includes
    LCD-2 Rev 2
    HE-500
    or wait a little and get the HD800.
     
    Would anyone chime in on the pros and cons of what these headphones or if i should consider other headphones as well given my existing amp/dac setup? Thoughts are appreciated. Many thanks!

    edit:
    - to clarify i'm wondering what's a good list of headphones under or equal to 1500 that would have good synergy with the listed amp/dac setup above. I dont have a preference really for warm or analytical type cans. Just something good for the type of sound it brings.

    The headphones make more of a difference than the amp. The only reason I ever bought the hd800 is because I tried it at an audio show with the wa22 xD
