I think in Europe the hd650 were at like 300 or 350 euro at their release.
In the us it seems their msrp was $499.

Nope it wasnt, HD 800 are bit overpriced (bit too much overpriced considering they seem to sound like just a lot improved AKG 701).

Tough, Ive seen a shop selling it for 1200 USD (converted from my currency). Which isnt much better.. but still.

I wonder what the general attitude was towards, say the HD600, or HD580 when it first came out. They are highly praised and they've been out for a long time! I wasn't into hi-fi at that time

This Headroom review/blog entry was pretty interesting rhythmdevils. It's great to have guys like Tyll about. I was 3 in 1991 .

On Tyll's blog he recounts he seeing Sennheiser working on the HD800 in 2005/06. I don't know the industry too well, but it seems to me that they're a relatively heavy R&D phone, Sennheiser had to develop that ring radiator and make it work.

That was a fun article, thanks for the link. We don't see as much history around here but it's quite interesting to read up on.

1991 wasn't that long ago.

I say there should be more respect to those who have been in this hobby longer than us!

I'm trying to wonder what headphones will be like in 2020.
