Hi All,

I am looking for a Headphone amp for my recently acquired Sennheiser HD800s. Primary purpose is listening to music. I listen to all genres of music with exception of death metal.

Looking preferably (not restricted) for a tube based amp with built in dac.

My budget is 40-50k but willing to expand if it means I can get best out of HD800.

Thanks
Satya

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

The headphonezone does not have senn amp. It is available on amazon but the price of cheaper on HDVD600 itself is 1.14L.
I have heard good things about tube amp pairing for HD800 (also recommended by its previous owner). So wanted to go the tube way.

After a while bump. I am looking for tube based amps. Please PM me if you are looking to sell any that would pair well with HD800.

I am listing below the amps that should pair well as per my research:

1. Eddie Current amps
2. DNA tube amps (all models)
3. Woo Audio
4. Bottlehead headphone amps
5. Lyrita 2A3 int amp (with headphone out)
6. Schiit (they seem to pair decently but am exploring for better)
