Actually someone here said that that promotion was not even supposed to be leaked out to the public, which is why it only lasted a few hours on Black Friday. So it likely won't come again at all.
Uh, simply Googleing "DT770 vs K550" pulled up quite a bit of links to various threads covering this in great...
I listened to them at Target, and the MDR-XB700 blows them violently out of the water (I've never heard the XB500 or XB800). I thought the Skullcandy Aviators that were sitting next to them sounded much better, if that tells you anything. They also felt very cheap and flimsy compared to the old XB line.
  +1 if you can wait it out another 10 months, they may do a crazy deal again. Just this past Black Friday, I got a brand new HD 650 from for $340 with a $50 iTunes gift card. After I sold the gift card, it ended up at $290 for a brand new HD 650.   Best $290 I've ever spent on this hobby.   Edit: Also check the Deals Thread here. That's how I got mine dirt cheap. Right now people are talking about a Razordog deal here it's $50 to $100 off any headphone...
Definitely will need to check them out on the Bottlehead Crack. Hopefully I'll have the Speedball upgrade by then as well. It is a very, very nice match.
subscribed...great list!
Staying true to your name. (I joke!)
^ which means they probably are Hong Kong specials, which also means, as I said, they probably sound exactly like regular Beats by Dre Studios.
Hell, for $75 you can get a pair of Beats Studio Hong Kong specials (Chinese knock-offs) shipped that sound the exact same...probably because they are built in the same factory using the same sub-par parts...
The new version looks silver when you look through the grills. The old version looks black through the grills.   I've only ever heard the newer silver version, though I have heard people here claim that they can hear the infamous "veil" on the black version, while it is not present in the silver version- fwiw.
