I'm just going to point out that if you're looking for a real tube amp, this isn't it. The preamp section uses tubes but the actual amplification is transistor. That's why it's a "hybrid".
They give certain headphones (dynamic drivers) a warmer sound.
Well it's hobby first and foremost.
To answer your question, these are a few reasons I can think of: asthetics, nostalgia, flavors, experiments, the kool-aid (aka YouTube, reddit, ASR, etc..), chasing a unicorn, technical specs,..
The first couple of tube amps I bought were for experimenting purposes. The last one was for the specs and it was on sale. I needed an AMP with high output impedence for my 600 ohms cans. Tube amps (not hybrid) usually have high output impedence.
Audio is a rabbit hole, so I kept it short and throw in some keywords for Google search.

Sorry for my ignorance, but why do people buy tube amplifiers? I thought it was old technology at this point.

if you don't need the DAC part, you can pick up the 50W ones for 10 dollar more.

So is this 25w total or 25w per channel? Outside of not being a "real" tube amp, is it any good?

It seems the 25w one is newer since it is the 2019 version, the 50w one was manufactured in 2016.

What would it do to the Planar Magnetic ones, like he400i, or Sundara?

Is this overkill for my sennheiser HD 6xx? I've been waiting for the schiit magni 3 to go on sale for a while now but this seems tempting.

Hence it being $109...
