I have used the HD 600's with a Musical Fidelity XCans, a Burson HA 160 and finally settled upon a Bryston Headphone amp. In terms of your price range I would suggest the Musical Fidelity or the Burson which both sound great. (the XCans can be bought for around 150 -200 while the Burson would be more expensive at around 400-450.

The HD800 is the King of these Headphones. The difference is in the overall tonal quality , the accuracy of the instruments reproduced , the extra width and height and length of the perceived soundstage around your head which is an effect created by the angle , size and tuning of the drivers.

The Sennheiser HD 600 and 650 in comparison lack bass depth soundstage depth tonal clarity and are in a different class than the Sennheiser HD800 sits in. The HD600/650 are good midrange headphones that have gathered a favourable reputation in the Headphone World.

But comparing them to the HD800 is like comparing Lambrini Sparkling Wine to Champagne.

HD600 love tubes. I have the Xduoo TA-03 which is a output Transformerless (OTL) amp/dac, really amazing detail, dynamics, and bass. Also superb for the HD800.

I own both hd800 and hd650
the hd650 is just as good as the hd800 and in many ways better.
the tonal balance of the hd650 is miles ahead the bright hd800. HD650 ttransition from mids to treble is probably as good as it gets. the hd800 have a peak at 6khz that is truly harsh when unmodded. hd800 have a much better soundstage and layering, but the hd650 midrange and treble is imnsho smoother and more musical and just as much resolution. Hd800 have better bass.

if I wanted a can and wouldnt want to mod it, id recommend the hd650 easily over the hd800.

My favorite match for my HD 650's was my Marantz 1060. :D

In terms of a headphones amplifier, your best bet is O2. Of course measurements can be critical since the task at hand is amplification. Though it isn't cheap by any means in my experience O2 outperforms any other option here. With a 120+db SNR it wipes even AK240's SNR.

I have own one and have it paired with a HD800 and a warm DAC. Match made in heaven.

Buying audio equipment in this price range is always about the research, so good luck.
