This sounds like a great Christmas gift to myself (if they run this massdrop again during the holidays). I have had the Sennheiser HD-650's and now I use the HD-800's fairly exclusively. I just feel that any other headphone I put on is colored and the soundstage gets smushed and have yet to find an equal. I've tried the HD-598's and they are nice but in a rather colored way. That should be a reasonable expectation since I haven't bought any other cans that were that expensive and considered to be at the level of the 800's.
I wanted a new pair for using with my laptop at home. It's not an ideal DAC being built in, but it's one of those laptops that bragged about how good the sound is and it isn't too bad. I picked up some HE400i's last Christmas and I really like them but only if I don't do a direct comparison with the 800's. They have great crunch and decent bass overall.
To those who have their HD-58x's already and have owned these other headphones, can you tell me your opinions on how they compare? I'm just curious if there would be enough difference to make it worth having yet another set around the house.
