So I've never heard the BHA... but I *have* been running my headphones directly off the speaker taps of a 4B and 3B

Which headphones and isn't this a bit overkill?

I'm one of those nuts with an HE-6

 
But I've also used a Sennheiser HD650 and HD25 (w/600 ohm drivers)

I'm sure the BHA-1 doesn't have the ooomph to drive the HE-6 properly but, I'd love to get your opinion of the pairing.  Too bad you don't have one.  : (
 
I am still trying to decide on my next headphone.

I might be able to trade for a 2B soon... I guess I'll eventually work my way *down* to the BHA

Are you suggesting that I simply jump to the logical conclusion instead of trying every product in between? Geez man, where's your rampant sense of gluttonous consumerism?

The combined cost of my used Bryston power amps is less than the cost of a used BHA-1...

Great beer thread! Hey, do you guys listen to headphones by any chance? 

 
Sooooooo, tell me about dynamics, impact and just plain ooooomph. My Gustard H-10 is too damn polite and I feel like a little more SS...... :)

  a used BHA-1 sometimes sells for $800CAD.
 
$800?!?! I'd get a second one for that price :p

Impact and just plain ooomph? ....we are still talking about sound...right?
 
BHA does dynamics exceptionally well to my hear. For oomph, well, it definitely gave my HD800 far more of that too.
