I know, I know, three radically different headphones.  One closed, the other two open.  I listen to a lot of classic, jazz, so-called "acoustic", folk music - in general the opposite of either electronic, rock, or heavy metal head-banging music or hip-hop.  My current portable cans - the estimable CAL! aka Creative Aurvana Live's - are excellent, rich, quite good.....but sometimes a little muddy or heavy or bloated.  So I'm searching for a 2nd pair to complement them.....and give me more detail, more presence, more soundstage, more.....all of those things.  And, alas, my budget is limited.....otherwise probably HD 600's and 650's would be on the list.
 
My first choice would be Beyerdynamic DT-660 / DT660 - but no one seems to have any.  
 
Next choice is HD598's - and I'd even consider a pair of HD 558's also.  For all the obvious reasons.  HD598's seem to have been the flavor-of-the-month for awhile but they still have so many excellent qualities for what I want that, for the right price, I won't hesitate.
 
And finally....AKG K601.  This is a bit of a compromise because my first choice would be AKG K501's - but these days the few 501's around seem to command asking prices higher than Senn HD 650's....and my budget isn't stratospheric.
 
Please let me know if you have any of the above for sale.
 
Price depends on condition and other factors....including my bank account.
 
Cheers!

Thanks, saxophone.  I'm exploring this possibility.  But for weird psychological reasons, my first choice would be to buy headphones from a fellow head-fi'er.
