Great to hear!  I really like the more accurate bass the HE-500/560's have over the 598's along with the added detail and treble response.  All in all, a worthwhile upgrade!
Excellent, can't wait to hear your review!  Happy listening
I've heard the Philips Fidelio X2 recently that has a similar sound signature to the HD600/650's and HE-500's (minus the high frequency extension of the HE-500's).  They have a fun, laid back sound that is pleasant with many genres.  At 380g they are considerably lighter than the >500g HE-500's.  There's a pretty good discussion going here:  http://www.head-fi.org/t/729413/philips-fidelio-x2-a-review-by-baycode 
If you're looking for a new DAC and possibly Amp in that price range, I'll throw in a recommendation towards an Audio-GD NFB-10.33  http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB1033/NFB10.33EN.htm   It runs $580 (before shipping) and includes a dual Wolfson WM8741 DAC and an excellent high output amp.  Best of all, its fully balanced for any future upgrades you may consider.  Most Audio-GD DAC's products that I've heard are mostly neutral with a hint of warm musical...
To my ears, the HD 800 sure has the attributes for classical: huge sound-stage, precise imaging, and an overall neutral tone.  I personally prefer stats for classical due to the "airy" sound and fast decay however, many people consider the HD 800 one of the best for that genre.    Glad you're enjoying the Salk's.  Had a chance to hear a pair at a co-workers place in Michigan. 
Ruling out stats:  If rock is your mainstay, you might be best off with a punchy full range ortho, such as the Hifiman HE-500 or HE-560, as a good upgrade to the HD598.  I've heard both and they have the low end punch, dynamics, and speed for rock.  While detailed, they are not clinical like the HD 800's and shouldn't ruin you're enjoyment of older and possibly poorly recorded rock.  They are also one of the few headphones I'd throw into the "genre master" category in...
