That is the only issue I have with the 407/507. I love the sound but the comfort level is not what I would hope for. While these are far more comfortable than the HE500's I sold, they still never come close to disappearing when worn like my T1's. I can wear them for hours but I can never forget that I am wearing headphones. The design places a lot of pressure on my cheeks and in front of my ears. They could have made the ear opening a bit larger and deeper to reduce this effect as it is barely large enough as it is.

Wait, the ESP/950 ear-cup is barely large enough? Or the STAX?

Must be the gold and unobtanium plated 2500AD version with built-in oscilloscope to view the musical waveforms.

 

But, when all is said and done, it's still only half an Orpheus.

At first I thought it had to be a lot of like 10 of them. But then I thought maybe it's just logarithmic pricing run amuck. But then I didn't know what to think.

Maybe the dude has dyslexic fingers and put the decimal point in the wrong place....

search for " headphone" on ebay and sorth it with " highest first "

 

you will find may $50-200 headphones listed around 10000 there .

whats more, some of them get sold !! ( check that it says " sold")

1000

sellers sometimes/often raise the price to ridiculous levels when they run out of stock or need to pause sales for other reason. If you click on that sold you'll see that it sold for a lower amount.

I can't tell you how many auction's I've listed end at a stupid price (as in bid up to) only to have the buyer never pay or communicate with me.

If you have one of these NIB in 2500, I'm willing to bet that price is likely.

They really aren't as ugly/toy-like as I thought they would be, and they are light and comfortable.

 

Man, this hobby is getting expensive quick for me.  Starts off with a set of Shure e4c, and now this.  Just killing me.

 

If it makes you feel any better, in my opinion, the faster one gets to 'stats in this hobby, the cheaper it is.  beerchug.gif

I sent the seller an eBay message, but there has been no reply.  Could just be some pricing software gone mad.

 

I sold stuff on Amazon using pricing / inventory control software at one time, and out of the blue the software decided to set all my prices to $0.01 ....  I had all these orders to cancel, the robot at Amazon got cross with me about all my cancellations and was threatening to kick me off Amazon Merchants, the software company said it was my fault....
