  That's pretty much what I said to preproman when I was first using the emo. I was amazed how much SQ i was getting. I think we came to a few conclusions. 1. Headphone amplifiers are more of a boutique item. Very limited supply, so vendors can charge a lot for what they make.2. Most headphones really don't need a lot of power. Hooking up a Denon D2000 to an emotiva would have a high noise floor3. Super easy to blow out drivers on a speaker amp.4. Most important, the...
  The reason behind the pricing? Sennheiser maximizing profits. They're working hard to keep those prices inflated
 I posted a very nice write up on this issue with lots of specifics that a Mod fancied deleting in a previous "deals" thread, so I'll just give a short answer: Sometimes the manufacturer will honor it.

 I had a NFB-10SE which is nearly identical (I believe) aside from inputs and a few small changes. I felt my NFB-10SE underpowered my HE-6 when I had them.
