Interesting that some large companies, in this day and age with the focus on corporate behaviour, would take the position that it is not per se "illegal" to develop their policies. This is a more challenging situation to address with private companies than with public companies, but it is still a very serious corporate governance issue IMO, and we as consumers should not let unacceptable corporate behaviour be tolerated. I for one would be prepared to support a letter...
I am surprised this has not come up prominently in Forum threads, as it is an important issue for consumers. Without naming specific manufacturers, why isn't this, when it can be proven, considered to be an anti-trust violation in the U.S.? If some manufacturers are in fact threatening retailers who discount MSRP pricing, we as consumers, should be concerned about this.
As Dell are now showing 1-2 weeks on their website, it appears that they may also be sold out.

Assuming you prefer the 650s' sound - the most important consideration IMO, I would be inclined to think longer term, as the 650s, by all reports on Head-Fi, scale well, and improve as you improve system components. Short term, (maybe ignorance is bliss here!), but I have been thoroughly enjoying my 650s using just a portable HeadRoom Total BitHead amp/DAC, and I could happily live with this setup for quite awhile if I wasn't in a position to buy a desktop amp and DAC. ...
That's what hedging is.
My wallet is now officially empty thanks to this site!
From the SAA website - I have no way of proving or disproving this, but it sold me! "The Sennheiser HD600/580 stock headphone cable is MUCH better sonically than the Sennheiser HD650 stock cable. The HD650 stock headphone cable uses considerably more signal polluting dielectric which degrades the audio signal. If you want to improve the overall sound of your HD650's, change the stock headphone cable to the HD600/580 stock headphone cable. That improvement just scratches...
Good point JxK, but are these really portable in your mind? I can but Grados in a briefcase just as easily, but I wouldn't call them portable.

Jude has received a pair for review and created a thread about them in the full-sized headphone section with photographs. He has not posted his thoughts as yet. I think I hedged myself with a similar 'wait and see' comment just prior to that, but for the sake of discussion, do you...
