Awesome, Ti! And you should find the more you listen to them you won't feel a need to listen to any other headphone.

One thing I noticed about the bass --- the bass is all there, it really is. It just has to be there on the recordings. The HD600 will show more bass even with mediocre sources, and/or if the source output voltage is lower. The HD800 will benefit the most if the source is high quality, and/or if the source output voltage is higher which you will find with balanced outputs, typically 4 - 5V --- and if the headphone amp can put out between 18 - 24V. This has been my experience with them. Also, the amp's output impedance should be as low as possible, which with the Beta22 is obviously not a problem at 0.01 ohms.

Congrats Ti! Thanks for posting your impressions on them (first time I've seen you post anything subjective).
Coincidentally, I too got my HD800s today and am enjoying them very much.
