While a lot of what you *like* in the +$500 category is down to personal preference I still think that this list is excellent and objective in laying out the differences between headphones.

A funny story from my own personal experience, when I was looking for an upgrade, I went to a local audio shop and auditioned HD800, K812, T1 and LCD-2.2 and went for the HD800 in the end without looking at that thread or reading any comparison. I was not even aware of that thread's existence weeks after my purchase. 

 

I did not even plan on getting a TOTL cans when going to the shop, the original plan was to get something to complement the Q701. When I get there with my father, who is also an audiophile, he tried the TOTLs and told me the DT880 (which was what I planned on getting) sounds rubbish in comparison and told me to get a TOTL instead. So in the end I just put the trust on my own ears and decided that I liked the HD800 the most.

 

It was a big surprise to see that battle of the flagships thread and seeing the HD800 ranks above the LCD-2.2 and way above the T1.

to be fair, it is one person's judgment/ranking.

 

but yes, the hd800 are pretty sick...i just got a pair of he-500 and am somewhat underwhelmed by them. i'm building a balanced cable in hopes that they'll be better balanced, but...but the hd800 kind of do that to other headphones.
