I just received my ATH- W5000 phones as my first Full size Closed phone for a bedside rig. As the Stax 404 LE/600 didnt cut it with the wife.
Im listening to them as I type only direct into my iphone.. and am pleasantly surprised.. new amp dac decisions made later.
Here's my question.. and does anyone have the answer.
How is it possible in July 2011 I purchased these for $649 online and at the same time they are sold for $999 on other sites.
Both prices are on audio technica authorize dealer pricing..
Let's just say this could never happen with a Rolex.
How is there such a disparity and audio technica is ok with it?
If I purchased a pair recently for $999 I would be livid.. to say the least.
I wanted to see them arrive prior to posting my ? because it seemed to good to be true.
