I got a pair of HD800 after the 800S came out and the price dropped. ATOMICBOB speaks highly of the HD650.
Aren't the Open Alpha headphones rather low impedance? I thought the Valhalla paired well with high impedance headphones that like large voltage swings? I do not wish to discourage you, experimentation is great fun, but they may pair better with your Vali 2.
I was Looking at the HD 600's and 650's, I really Liked the way they paired when I tried them at the Nashville meet. Still not out of the Question. I Bought a Pair of the Fostex TR series which is what the Alpha's are Based on and what I will use for the Project. I Really like the way the basic Fostex HP's out of the Box sounded with the Valhalla. They are not exactly efficient though. I have them Plugged into my Vali 2 at work Right now. Yes, very Slow Day. If anything I will have a very Nice set Closed HP's for work.
