It's funny how prices for these cans have skyrocketed since they've been discontinued, but being discontinued in the first place is what enabled me (or motivated me) to get them.
If y'all remember, once news broke that Denon would no longer make these cans, many dealers reduced prices for their remaining inventory. I got mine new for $550 shipped, which couldn't even get you a used pair now.
I absolutely love these cans, and they look beautiful (for a headphone). Even though my ears are shying away from heavy bass and leaning more toward neutral, they still get a lot of head time.
Yep, me too. I've always admired these from afar. But when I found out they were disappearing forever I decided it was now or never, I had to ask her out....uh I mean pick up a pair. Got about the same price and am simply delighted with them. I don't like boomy bass at all and I find these cans make music just plain fun.
My advice to anyone sitting on the fence is, if you can find a pair for a reasonable price - grab em'!
