I found the HD600 a tad cold in it's sound signature like I find most of Sennheiser's headphones are, so I would go with the Vali because tube amps generally make the sound a bit warmer; give them more low end body.

I am in india, the shipping for the vali is around 30 usd. If i need to replace the tubes then I have to pay nearly half as much after shipping.

The tubes on the Vali are soldered in, so you won't have to worry about replacing them. The tubes have a long lifespan so you will probably never need to worry about replacing them in the time that you use the product. Unless they're broken on arrival, which would obviously require a replacement product.
 
I would personally go with a well-built O2, something like a Mayflower or JDS Labs (doesn't really matter as long as it's a well designed model). The two amps are usually considered equal in sound quality, but since the HD600 are slightly warm and lush I would want a more neutral amp (such as the Magni or O2).
