As I have mentioned, I have the HD580 with 600 grilles and 650 cable. They were not used much for a while but I recently bought a Schiit Magni and that sort of rekindled the desire for new headphones. Did not dislike the Sennheisers in any way, just figured newer may be better. So, I have listened to HD800, HD650, LCD-2, LCD-3 and Fostex TH-900. My conclusion? The HD580\600 is just amazing! Sure some of the new flagships do some things better, they all had minor issues, but none seemed worth the money to me. The HD800 appealed the most but not for the price. The HD580/600 is just a wonderful product that still sits near the top of the heap.
