Soundprofessionals.com has them for $122.31  after the coupon code. They also sell refurbished ones for around $105 I think.

wow, didn't know the price of the M50s are this high now o.o

I got them for $95 on ebay from audio-topia last year, which is an authorized dealer

Just to make sure, I also checked for the sticker, and sure enough it was there with a non-green circuit board^^

Someone recommended getting them from ScitScat for $120 w/free shipping: http://www.scitscat.com/p-4793-audio-technica-ath-m50s-professional-headphones-straight.aspx

 

However, as I mentioned in another thread, the item name and SKUs seem mixed up (the item labeled straight is the coiled SKU and vice versa).  Also, I don't know if ScitScat is a trustworthy retailer, how long they take to ship, and what their return policy is.  Is there anyone who's purchased from them that could chime in?

 

Amazon currently has the straight variant for $141.  http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATHM50S-Professional-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B004ZG9TMA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1318179448&sr=8-2  I'm very tempted to get these as I get free 2-day shipping (Prime student account) and I have never had any problems with Amazon in the past.  If ScitScat is a good retailer, though, I'd be willing to try them to save some money.

Seems like ScitScat is an authorized dealer of Audio-Techinica. Check here for a list of authorized dealers~

I highly recommend buying from only authorized dealers, especially with something like an M50 where there are fakes all over the place

Try proaudiomart on ebay and make an offer for whatever you want to pay. I paid $90 from them a long time ago but someone recently said they wont make that deal anymore.

 

Check this thread. In post #293 or #294 dude said that proaduiomart offered to sell them for $124. Id make that deal, I think they are worth it. You have to go on ebay though and click the make offer button.

This seems like the best price that's set-in-stone (not 'best offer' on eBay).
