I'm actually sitting in Barnes & Noble in Austin right now with my Uptowns on (listening to BT's Morceau Subrosa) and reading Hi-Fi News. :D

Ironically since I work for an airlines company, the round trip flight ticket to Phoenix and back is less than the taxes Texas charges for any significant Amazon purchase.

 

On a headphone related note, the Uptowns arrived today, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are much more comfortable than I remembered them being in the Best Buy. Kudos to the person who found the $40 deal, I think I'll definitely have a use or two for them in the future.

As a WA resident, I've always paid tax at Amazon. I make a point of looking for out of state "fulfilled by" sellers.

Have been playing with them all of today while going through my library tagging and correcting albums. They sound surprisingly good on rock songs, came across a Paramore song on shuffle and ended up manually going through the entire album.

 

They are fairly comfy, clamping force is a little tight straight out of the box and the pleather gets hot after hours of usages, but have had them on for a few hrs without any major complaints. Definitely a value buy at $40. It pays to watch this thread I suppose. <:

Dakmart is listed as an authorized dealer, but I'm not sure what to make of them. They have the HD600 for $209 refurb, should I get it?

Their shipping is $18.98... I hope that's 1 or 2 day shipping because that's really expensive

Dakmart has been around for a while, but they have a reputation for being disorganized.

 

$209 for a factory refurb HD 600 looks tempting. If only I hadn't bought the HD 650 this week!
