Yeah congratulations! I've been doing similar purchasing recently - trying to buy stuff that doesn't sound like my AKGs. The HD600 is on the short list for sure. (I ended up with beyer dt880 600ohm and a pair of ultrasone pro 2900).

Thanks!
 
The DT880 600ohm was also on my short list.  You'll have to let me know how it compares to your new set, if you do get the HD600.  It'll be fun to do a personal comparison between my 325e and HD600.

My dt880s were already recabled to 4pin balanced and I'm using them with the violectric v181. I got the edt 800 pads for the dt880 (this really comfy leather pad beyer makes but is tough to find) and I'm really happy with them. I probably won't buy anything for a while but I have a friend with hd650s that I may borrow to do a comparison... These headphones! Even though its a money sink, its still pretty fun.

I started down this rabbit hole about a month ago.  I initially just wanted a new pair of Grados.  That's it.  Then after perusing Head-Fi to do some research, I picked up a DAC, two amps, and two headphones instead.  I'm running out of room on my desk!
