  SoundStage! Equipment Review - Sennheiser HD 600 Headphones (1/2003)
The 580s were difficult to drive, but they cost a fraction of what I paid for the Stax 'phones, which left room in my budget for a small Creek OBH-11 headphone amplifier.
By comparison, the HD 580s were not quite as clean and transparent through the midrange, though the difference wasn’t huge.
But stainless-steel screens on the outside of the HD 600s replace the plastic of the HD 580s, and the ear cup, which used to be plastic, is now replaced by one of carbon fiber, which is said to reduce resonance.

 Sennheiser 580 Review
The HD 580s come with a 3 meter long copper cord, which is convenient because with that kind of length, you'll likely not need extension cord to get to your sound source.
The HD 580s are cased in a hard, gray plastic - there is some metal in the headphone, mainly for the expandable headband, but for the most part it's plastic, which keeps the phones very lightweight for its size.
The Sennheiser HD 580s feature an "open" design, which means that the casing that surrounds the headphone drivers doesn't seal out the outside.

I want something for portable audio, and the 580s require more juice than most amps can put out on portable audio players.
Unfortunetly, the 580s are out of the picture for the moment - I am not in great need of a pair of good cans for home use.
These are an import item, so they're a little more pricey(cheaper than the 580s though), however they have many pros.

 [H]ard|Forum - Music Listener - What headphones?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
HD 580s are great if you have the money.
IMO the 497s are 3/4 as good as the 580s, main problem is the 497s sound a bit "dry".
One tidbit i'll add in is the HD497 is a bargain for the high quality they deliver, and they don't need an amplifier unlike the more expensive models.

 Overfinch Range Rover 580S | Car Reviews - Driven | evo   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The end result is a healthy five litres with a useful 100bhp more than the standard 4.4's 286bhp, though torque has risen by a comparatively modest 53lb ft to peak at 376lb ft.
As the latest Range Rover is 500kg heftier than the last one, even with the new engine tweaks, yet more help was needed to give the 580S the degree of urgency expected of an Overfinch.
Overfinch decided to rebuild the five-speed auto gearbox on the 580S and fit a special close-ratio gear set, including a lower first gear to give the big 4x4 a brisker step-off from a standing start than a standard car.

There is a difference between the two and I like the HD 600s more than the '580s.
The '580s are the kind of product that, while you're listening to them, you might easily ask yourself how they could be any better.
Even if you did compare the two and agree the '600s were "better," you might still feel the price difference was too great, given the high-resolution performance of the '580s.

 Stereophile: Sennheiser HD 600 headphones
At some frequencies, the materials from which they were made caused resonances that compromised their ultimate performance.
Sennheiser also discovered that, by using computer modeling, they could focus the neodymium magnets to better drive the diaphragms—the '600s are built to a 1dB tolerance, as opposed to the '580s' 3dB.
Although both headphones are rated as having clean response down to 16Hz, the '580s sounded less punchy.

And the 580s sound like out of this world.
While the MS-1s and the 580s seem to thump at the slightest insinuation (and the 490s produce a rumble) the A8s simply won't even try to play them.
Only upper bass is played, nicely though for a set of earphones.

 Head-Fi (Headphone Hi-Fi and Portable Audio) - HD600 grills for HD580?
I highly dislike the cheapo looking "blue-grey" plastic grills on the 580s.
But I must say that I like the look of the 580s much better than that 1989-style "carbon-fiber" marble look of the 600s (no offense to 600 lovers)!
I know they surely sound better than 580s, and like someone said "you don't look in the mirror while listening to headphones", but man- I'd have to get some neon green biking shorts and checker-board Vans to go with the 600s.

 Head-Fi (Headphone Hi-Fi and Portable Audio) - OBH-11 or Rega Ear?
I used to own the rega ear with my 580s, I also own a nad integrated amp, and the rega ear is very much the same, so if you liked that sound, then its a good choice.
I got the Marantz receiver assuming that I would be working soon after college and would in the next few years hopefully setup a basic surround sound system of some sort...nothing amazing...but music is my life so I would scrimp and save for the additional pieces.
Yes I use the 352 for my 580s, I recnetly upgraded from the 320BEE (I'm selling it in the forums here), both provide good quality for the sennheiser series.
