It would be interesting if you could someday compare a 600 and 650 back to back and give us your thoughts.

No way I am buying a HD600. There's plenty comparisons on the HD650 and HD600 thread though!

wow, that has got to be the fastest response ever :-) I have the 600 and love it, and I hope to get my hands on a 650 or 700 someday.

This doesn't apply to this thread really, but my 558s are shedding. Now where's my lint roller...

I'm searching for a pair of headphones right now for gaming and music. I personally like fun sounding headphones, but I don't know if I should get a pair of refurbished Sennheiser HD558s for $89 or a pair of Grado SR80e + L-cush pads for a total of $120. Help would be gladly appreciated.

HD558 would be a better choice for gaming IMO (based off from my gaming experience with my HD598), and for $90 you can't go wrong. You may find the SR80 lacking in the lower end and maybe a little too shrill on the higher end. For gaming, you want a flatter response, especially in the mids.

I have a pair of HD558's and also Grado SR60i. I love them both for different reasons but when I want a "fun" headphone I reach for the Grado every time. It is truly a punchy rock and roll headphone with a more "in your head" soundstage. The HD558 is the more "neutral" headphone with bigger soundstage that sounds great with all music but it doesn't have the "punch" the Grados have.

 

BTW - Ive never heard the SR80 but I am so happy with the SR60 I have no real desire to try it.

Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone has tried this replacement cable:
http://m.ebay.com/itm/Replacement-cable-with-Remote-Mic-connect-iphone-to-Sennheiser-HD598-HD558-HD518-/261280639444
What's the quality of the mic like? And does it work with pc or only apple products?

Also, I've been searching everywhere for a 2.5mm male to 3.5mm female audio jack adapter with the sennheiser twist lock mechanism. It would be ideal for the V-Moda BoomPro but I can't find it anywhere and I don't want to remove the locking mechanism if possible. Does such an adapter exist?

Any help is hugely appreciated!
