Neither the D600 or DT770 are anything like the K550. Both are much bassier, although the DT770 has neutral-bright mids like the K550. If the K550 was too bright/had too much treble for you, you probably won't like ANY Beyerdyamic cans, including the 32 and 80 ohm DT770s. They are pretty bright and treble-y.

I haven't heard the 518 so I can't offer any comparison, however I will say the DT770 has a much more neutral tone than any Sennheiser I've heard other than the HD800; Sennheisers are notoriously warm and lush. The D600 is warmer like Senns.

If I were you I would look into those D600s; they are warm and smooth like the Momentums, but a bit more neutral/real-sounding with a bigger soundstage. I'm surprised they aren't more popular than they are; they have a big, full, smooth sound and are much more fashionable than most cans discussed here on Head-Fi. You might also want to check out the UE6000, they are also very stylish and have a really impressive sound for the price: good soundstage, balanced presentation (nothing overshadows anything else or stands out like a sore thumb), and plenty of bass. They are super versatile. The D600 scale up more with better amps and sources, and are built better, but they sound about equal (not the same; the D600 are warmer) from a portable source and the UE6000s are more portable (smaller and foldable). If you plan on using them more on the go, the UE6000 would be the safer bet, but it looks like you have portable cans you like, so I'd go with the D600, personally.

The d600 are on the level of the super famed d2000 to you?
The problem of the k550 was the lack of bass and body too the sound. Headphones like the hd25 or the v6 are trebly but they have a nice low end too even things.
Returning to the denons, indeed there is little info or reviews about them... Reading the amazon reviews makes you think the d600s are too bass heavy, colored, bulky and with not that good build...

One of the things í loved on the momentums is the resolution. Its almost palpable...But maybe i am a weird guy... Many people, actually most people like open headphones, í like a nice soundstage but i like closed headphones more...
