Will HD8XX provide balance cable? If so, is it 4.4mm or 4-pin?

It doesn't. I would however recommend looking up Periapt cables for a 4 pin Balanced XLR cable. It should run you around $115 for a 5ft cable.

I bought the 800S used. It came with a top of the line Cardas Clear headphone cable. I decided to try Audio Envy's ToneKraft cable (at half the price of the Clear) because it came with a money-back guarantee. After full break-in (200 hours) it killed the Clear in every respect — far more musical and emotionally engaging. My amplifier is a Cary 300SEI with NOS 6SN7 Hytron preamp tube, NOS 6SN7 Sylvania Bad Boy driver tubes, 300B Genalex Golden Lion power tubes, Synergistic Research Orange Fuse...and a lot of upgrades.

The problems with cheap Chinese tube amps are quality control, build quality, and having to ship it back to China for repairs. People I know who repair tube components won't touch them because they often use toxic materials. Of course, there are higher-end Chinese amps such as PrimaLuna that are excellent. But they run into the thousands of dollars.

As far as tube amp, i run my HD 800s on La Figaro 339 Tube Headphone Amp. Not balance XLR, but one of the best tube amp to pair with the Sennheiser HD 800s. Around 1000.00$, but what a perfect combination sound wise.
