There is a difference though, in that the 600 is actually the same headphone as the 580 (same drivers and many of the same parts) but with a different body. The 650 is very much a different headphone with a different sound (and more worthy of a price gap

The 600 was introduced due to the success of a special edition of the 580 with similar design, so in a way, they did, but saw an opportunity to make more money off them.

If I may ask, has any of the Oregon crew aquired an HD650 since the last meet? I really need to borrow a pair for a weekend. You don't need to post here, you can PM me if you like, I just figure this is the best way to find anyone.

I'd be happy to turn it into a mini-meet, I have an Aria now...

Not me, that's for sure. I've been rather pissed off at Sennheiser lately. I've paid twice for those darned HD600 grilles, and they still haven't come yet. And while the customer service reps say the grilles are obsolete/out of stock, the warehouse guys say they get them in stock based on request. Well, I'm requesting a pair, so what then? Not only that, but after the first order I placed got cancelled and redone at my request, I was billed $5 for shipping, but I wasn't shipped anything

So now I have to be an assertive jerk and ask them just what the hell is going on. This is just plain stupid crap, IMHO.
