A properly driven & sealed TH600 will sound better than ER4S/4B (& ER4S/B are better than hd540)   I would only recommend TH600/500/60/50 to very experiened users because: 1.A lot of them,about 50%,are defective  (no sound) 2.10-15% sound weird (a high peak at 250hz) 3.Require good sealing, high quality source and ....patience     I've seen some HD800 ER4 HE560 users got very good result on a TH600 when something is wrong, they can sound really bad
After TH600 broken-in (just 1-2 days), the  "plastic sound" should gone too.   but to get good quantity bass & good sound, the only way is use them on a high quality source (include HD540,people should not use EQ to fix the bass)
 Sorry to hear that,when seal properly, it should at least fix the "bathroom" soundand those TH600 headphones need a top quality source,like Sony Qualia 010,they are super revealing(TH30 will sound much better than TH600 on a portable player)and please give it 1-2 days to break-in 
I've recorded some Telefunken TL800 videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCOogF34wJcJZo1HWHtxqmw     A properly sealed TH600, the sound is almost as good(or bad?) as the TL800    
if you want a quick listen   try push the TH600 earcups  
  TH600 is like Etymotic ER4,if you do not seal it properly(100%sealed), it will sound like junk
You need high quality digital source or vinyl to get real bass on the hd560 the best vintage sennheier are hd110 & hd224x ,sound is a lot smoother than other Sennheiser   My rating of Sennheriser: HD224x=HD110 when they are properly driven, the sound is comparable to HE90, very smooth ,lush sound HD430 (with new hd430 pads) the sound is as good as vintage stax lambda signature(the highs are harsh too,& lacking bass,like lambda signature...
sennheiser hd224x
I wrote an "enjoyment rating" in my profile, included hd540 hd560 you may have a look at it: http://www.head-fi.org/u/19408/pkshan
pic 1 & 2= later version       earlier version (headband & ear pads are different):   Someone told me the earlier version sound a lot better than the later version.I don't know.... hd540/560/250/222 are so mediocre when compared to 1970's flagship (grundig horer220/telefunken th60/sennheiser hd224x etc)
