    And also the HE-6 and HE-500 vs HE-400. The 400 is second to known to me but obviously they made the better versions for a reason but what is it about them that makes them better?? I'm very new into the Ortho world so not sure what to expect from the better models

    they just sound better :)  The HE-500 is a very clear step up from the 400, in my opinion.  HE-500/HE-6 is much closer with HE-500 even being the better choice if you do not have a very powerful amplifier for the HE-6.

    All three (plus other Orthos) are now covered.

    Right, I've heard the power of the almighty is needed to power the HE-6. So the HE-500 would make a lot more sense

    There is some truth to that, but (just to name a few) the HiFiMan EF 5 & 6, Burson HA-160 and Schiit Lyr will drive them.

    That list is for the HE-500 right?

    I think he meant for the HE-6.  It's said that the Burson Soloist can handle the HE-6... see:
     
    http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/burson-audio-soloist-headphone-amplifier
     
    But they say that the EF-6 is the better choice.  I'd figure the Lyr has the juice for it as well... but I'd question a Burson HA-160 handling it.

    Nope--the HE-6.
     
    The Schiit Asgard (for example) will drive the HE-500.
     
    Schiit also claims that the new $99 Magni will power it too.  See:

    The only amp listed that can really handle the HE-6 is the EF6. All the other ones really won't give it enough power. If someone is hesitant to get a HE-6 because they think they'll need to spend over a grand, head over the HE-6 thread. You can get an amp for under $200 that easily power the HE-6 and make it sound fantastic.

    Huh, I find that interesting, since Skylab nearly scoffed at me about 3 months ago for saying the Soloist had enough power for the HE-6. Wonder if he got a demo unit...

    Thanks man, awesome deal. I'm grabbing one. I've always wanted to try these but didn't want to pay retail for it. I wonder if it's a price mistake?

    Thanks for the heads up on the shure 750dj. I got a pair for my wife.

    I don't think it's a price mistake, they've sold ~10 units since I posted that link though, so I'd think it would be hard for them to back out anyways. I'd go for it if it weren't for my unfortunate geographic placement, hehe.
