I have the HD 600's and they do sound very similar to the 555's.

I'm powering mine with an Asgard and the only really noticeable difference is the extension and soundstage.  Detail and everything else is only a hair better.

I guess I'll keep an eye out for deals on the Q701 from now on. tongue.gif

Amazon sent me a notification with an updated price on the Sennheiser HD 650s: now they are being sold at 325 € (around 420 American dollars). It is the lowest price I've ever seen online by an italian reseller... Should I pull the trigger? atsmile.gif

About a month ago, they were being sold by Amazon.fr at 235 euro. That doesn't seem a very good deal to me...

Yup, I've discovered it a few minutes ago (on an italian audiophile forum) and I almost started crying. biggrin.gif
Anyway I can't seem to find a lower price in Europe at least from authorized/known resellers. Thanks man, guess I'll have to wait a little more before I'll get the chance to make them mine. redface.gif

Yes, the best option is to keep a close eye over them in the various european Amazon sites, and only buy them when they get to a good price. Their price are constantly going up and down. You can even use a monitor site like camelcamelcamel, that you can configure to warn you by email when they lower to certain a desired price! And let's stop with the offtopic, as this is a deals thread...

The French Amazon seems to be having the lowest prices on HD650's, you might want to check there and wait until the price dips lower again. Shipping probably shouldn't be too expensive since you're also in the EU.

The $30 (likely price mistake) SRH750DJ just arrived, and I'm blown away. Out of the box, there is excellent accuracy in the music I've listened to (thus far, some grimy hip-hop and some avant garde metal - not death) and the bass is super, super refined. Nice and punchy.

 

All in all, I think the seller did the mature thing. They fulfilled, as best I can tell, the orders of their stock, and are cancelling the people who backordered, which is probably the most we should expect on a price mistake and, provided everybody else gets theirs, I don't think anybody should leave them bad feedback.

Not sure how hot of a deal this is, but figured I'd throw it up here in case it piques anyone's interest. Newegg has Sennheiser HD 428 SCs on sale for $44.95 shipped (with promo code EMCNJNF47):

Awesome!  Can't wait to get mine now.  I agree, great of them to "man up" and go forward with the mistake price.  They will get a great review once I recieve them.

Yeah, I jump the gun when I said that, I thought they was gonna cancel everyone's order. 

Now I can't wait to get mine. I was really interested in this headphone 6 months ago but never bought it because of some of the reviews. @ $30 it's a no brainer.

It's only been about an hour or so of listening but it's gotta be the best $30 I've spent on headphones. Possible build quality issues and I need the pads to loosen up a little, but I have no complaints with the sound.

How's the build?? This review is what stopped me from (buying) paying retail for these
