Imagine you went into a large electronics store and discovered a wall with a good two dozen cans hanging there, most of them playing - HD580, HD600 and HD650 included (along with HD497, MDR-CD480, DJX1 and more). The curious headphone geek will naturally approach and take a listen - only to be greeted by totally overdriven bass, shrill highs, in other words: sound as crappy as it gets, on all cans. Too bad, I never heard any of these before. I don't know what they were fed with (reminded me of a crappy PCDP with the bass boost jacked up), but I doubt a lot of headphones are sold there...
