It is difficult for me to know what is a good deal in US prices. I bought my AKG K 702s for a bit more than that in UK so I guess it is a good deal.
I wonder a bit about the colour :) Maybe that is why they are selling so cheaply?
I think the AKG K 702s I have are truly excellent hi fi equipment. With a good amplifier you will get superb levels of resolution. They are free from the awful "warmth", the bloated bass and other forms of distortion applied to various hi fi components these days.
They are not perfect, this I know, but it is such a joy that really good hi fi is still being made.
If using AKG K 701/2s I recommend a good amplifier, by this I means a transparent amplifier which successfully amplifies the input signal, not one that "warms things up" or applies other "special effects".
