hehe, just ordered a pair of these yesterday got them for $161 shipped (no tax for CA =D)
going to have these hooked up to an Audigy 2 ZS Gamer Edition (though i think they only call it gamer because it comes with games) for my comp.
hopefully these will sound as good as everyone says they do

Did you order from shipdog.com? I ordered mine on Monday, and apparently it's stolen by the FedEx guy or something -- tracking information saying it was left at my door without the need for signature. I waited eagerly all day long for it to my anger. I thought all FedEx 2-Day packages needed signatures. Real bummer!

Got mine from Shipdog a week ago and lovin them through my Bithead as I type!

dang shipping from shipdog is pretty ridiculous.
post #80 of 966
yeah it is but it still works out cheaper than other places.
post #81 of 966
shipping is indeed crazy, but no tax is worth it and the price is cheaper also
btw, i thought all FedEx pacckages required signing? it said on teh page taht a person must be there to sign

Question

This is my first post. I have been looking for awhile but just joined last night. I guess I can expect more of when did you buy that from the wife and a lighter wallet in the future. I have been listening to Hi Fi since the 70's. Anyway you guys have got me wanting some 595's. Right now I listen to a pod with ether px-100 or Grado 60's and a pa2v2 amp. My first question is will the pa2v2 drive the 595's ok. Looks like the 595's have a 1/4 plug and I don't like adapters. Can the cord be changed to a 3.5. And lastly where is the cheapest place to buy the 595 in the US............Thanks For your help Trent

595 comfort issue

I received these phones the other day, and the sound has me in heaven...increasingly so as they break in. The earpieces are very, very comfortable. However, I find that, no matter how the phones are adjusted, the top piece puts a lot of pressure on the top of my head, and it doesn't feel terribly good. Has anyone else had this problem?

A bright, cold, and analytic sounding phone...very detailed, and with good comfort and decent construction...

The bass does take quite a lot of burn in to get to its peak on these cans. For the first 3 weeks the bass was relatively weak, but now I find it to be just about perfect. Bare in mind that I'm not a bass head so I'm rather tight and detailed bass over huge thuds.

Have you tied the 650s???

I haven't read all the responses. The 595 is a nice headphone, especially for the price, but I'm a 650 fan (with amp. of course). It is extremely comfortable and an excellent value.

Headphone holder

Do you any of 595 owners not use their headphone stand? If you don't want it, PM me!

shipdog is the absolute cheapest place right?

I have both, & prefer the 595's..BUT, if you have a high end amp, I don't think the 595's can compete with the 650's..They are very hard to drive..
