I have very old Sennheiser HD 580's and was hoping to get something as a replacement in case they ever give up and I'm very disappointed. These are muffled and sound pretty bad. No crispness whatsoever. I'll let them run for a few days to see if they break in, but color me very disappointed out of the box.
They do fit well, they ride on the head very nice, but that means little if they don't sound good.
I suggest replacing the pads with 595/598 pads. The stock pads seem to be the culprit.
HD 580s are more akin to the higher end HD 600. Grab new pads and keep rockin those great cans.
