You won't think it sounds bad until you try it with a real amp.  Then you'll go, "Ooooohh, so this is what they meant!"

I picked up some "like new" Fidelio X1 headphones from amazon last week. The headphones and packaging were in beautiful shape. Saved $50 off new price it was worth it!

You might also check the classifieds on this site for good deals if you're looking for used.  With the feedback rating system, you can be pretty confident that you're getting something in the condition specified.

I hardly buy new anymore, unless it really warranted or if the price difference is not there. (same thing with cars, who wants to take the instant depreciation!)

I can without a doubt say that one of the worst decisions I've ever made was buying a new car.

I saved $14k on my current car buying it <1 year used.  It still had over 3 years of factory warranty and regular maintenance.  There's really no reason to ever buy a new car unless you simply CAN'T get it used (Tesla).

 

For used headphones/amps/DAC's, with the reputation system on the classified and AWD categorizing the condition, seems like a no-brainer again.

You have still got to watch out buying a used car..take a qualified mechanic with you..some times too good to be true deals are not what they seem..might need a new chassis!

Oh agreed, which is why I got mine from a dealer.  I could have maybe saved a little more, but it was worth the peace of mind.

When you buy 'like new' you may save some money, but you forget one thing: no warranty (unless specifically stated). Those Amazon warehouse deals have no warranty.

True, but they do have a return policy, if you have any initial defects that you notice.  Down the road though, you may be out of luck, like you mention.

Hi :D

How good are the HD518 for gaming? are the HD 558/598 significantly better for gaming?

Also How do the HD518 compare to k240 & dt990 for gaming?

Thanks
