Its been a bit of a headphone war here....  These were my favourite headphone that emerged from the battle then suddenly I got re-aquainted with the Sennheiser HD600 and realised what I'd missed since I sold my last pair of them about  5 years ago. Just for the record.... I rate the Beyerdynamic above the AKG 701, Senn HD650, and far far above any execrable Grados or Audio Technicas. But the HD600 just pips it.  (Yes - IMO the HD600 is a better 'phone than the...
I suspect an IT problem led to the apparent randomness of orders being fulfilled. The stuff Play are telling about authorisation and verification is just made up because they just don't really know themselves The IT systems will no doubt be hosted by someone else and not really in Play's control -but its still their responsibility. The application servers that do the processing are probably in some kind of cluster which is load balanced.... so each server in the...

I got mine too. Left barely concealed behind a plant pot on my front doorstep, in the rain. But luckily in a plastic bag. Dammit - I think they might actually be better than my Beyer dt880s for classical music. Which means I might just have to keep them and not sell! It's also annoying as it means I've gone full circle on headphones. I had a pair of these 5 years ago but "upgraded" to the 650s
For goodness sake guys, its a pair of headphones. You didn't lose any money, and you don't really need them.
I have to say that the Audio Technica AD2000 were hugely disappointing for me.... sounded very unnatural IMO. I Hope the new owner doesn't think so! In the past I've really hated Stax - to my ears just gutless and very grey sounding, and pretty bad design in terms of comfort and mechanical noise from the 'phones themselves.
Sold my AD2000 headphones to Mark. He made up his mind quickly and paid immediately. Highly recommended, thanks.
Headphones are too personal for generalizations.... all you can do is try to hear as many as you can until you hear the ones that get it right. However.... no harm in trying!..... I listen to about 80% classical, and about 80% of that is big orchestral. Over several years I went through the Sennheisers HD600 & 650, tried Stax, tried AKG 701 and even Audio-technica AD2000 (yuck!). After a long road, I've got it down to either Beyerdynamic DT880 or Denon D5000. ...
Sold... thanks.
