Sounds like you're selecting the cream of the crop in headphones. wink.gif

 

The Sennheiser HD580/600/650 are quite a bit different than the HD598.  They will take good amplification and ask for more, giving you sounds that you never heard before with each upgrade.  It's a vicious cycle. wink.gif

 

I'm a Grado enthusiast myself and I feel for you guys outside of the states and the prices you have to pay.  Don't be deterred by the apparent construction with Grados.  Sennheisers will make them look like Model T Fords, but the Grados have a unique and very musical personality all their own.  Basically, the models increase with bass as you move up the line.  The RS-1 is a favorite of many, while the PS500 is the same as the Head-Fi HF-2 and many say it's better than the RS-1 because of the authoritative bass.  (Any Grado will have great highs, almost.)

 

It may take some doing to find an amp that you like with Grados - they don't take to solid-state, super-low output impedance very well (complaints of harshness).  It's why most people recommend tube amps for them.

 

Anyway - good luck!

Thanks guys for the  replys

i am  as mentioned a bit curious  hearing the higher ends sennheisers, i havent really listen to either  the 650 or the 700 or the 800

im actually very curious about specifacly the 650 and the 800

also very interesting about the grados , and u definetly right its a criminal price here in europe (norway) a set of 325i is around 600 us dollar

its alot better priced on amazoon for instance ,even  with tax etc

anyway time to listen to some music and do some work

cheers
