Their headphone and earphone pricing is off the roof. We live at a time where we have to pay extortion prices for entertainment.
I was looking for Blu-ray movies at Walmart and $24.99 for a new movie .
I'm having a moan again, I like the look of the Sony gear but I think they are getting too greedy with their prices but it is not just Sony!

Today heralded the arrival of my new TRN V80 headphones and first impressions are not very good! Bass is light, though the addition of foam buds has helped, bit too forward in the mids for me with a restricted sound stage, very at eyeball level and just around the temple area. Cannot quite put my finger on it yet but they sound off for some reason and they are sibilant, at least until I added the foam tips! Once they have had a bit of a run in, they might sound different, we wait with baited breath...

They are more similar than different. If I had to pick a winner, I would say that the HD580s sound a bit more cohesive, with slightly more natural sounding timbre. However the HE4XXs are excellent for the price. They're quite punchy and a bit more visceral, which leads to a more engaging listening style. I haven't had so much time with the HE4XXs so my feelings may change as I get more airtime with them.
