   couldn't find HD580 anywhere, I was under impression they were 
replaced by slightly cheaper HD570 and same/price or slightly more 
expensive HD590

   I tested both HD570 ($130) and HD590 ($200?) and I liked HD570 more, 
slightly cleaner sound, then again I tested them with mp3 player 
(PJB-100) so take it with grain of salt:-) I like them a lot but use 
them with mp3 player (iPod), computer (sb live platinum) and line6 
guitar pod mostly, nothing high end.
