I just ordered them.........Went like this;
Me: Hey there CSR, I was gonna buy some headphones and a forum member said to call in and check current prices of a specific headphone.
CSR: Sure thing what headphones?
Me: J&R Item # DNN AHD2000
CSR: We have those atm for 249.99
Me: Really? hmmm my forum members were quoted quote a bit lower.
CSR: How much where they quoted?
Me: 210 shipped.
CSR: Give me a second
*went afk for about a min*
CSR: We can do 210 shipped.
Me: Alright I'll take them.
Me: "inside" *F'ing sweet! but I hate these damn Head-fi people always getting me to spend more cash *

If it doesn't work for you I can give you the extension of the guy I was in contact with.
Basically, if they quote high, you tell them that you heard of someone who got it for $190 or $200 shipped. They probably won't give you that price, but they may compromise at $210 or something. Then tell them that Amazon had it for $200 last week, or that Electronics Expo is cheap, or something. If you mention competitors I figure they'll get scared.
Pro, and again, I hate you so much right now......and so does my wallet I was only checking the forums since I wanted to see if anyone had a good price on used 558/598. If no one had a good sale I was gonna go with Darkmart and buy some refurb 555's for sis and 558's for myself but somehow ended up here and now I still don't have a pair of open headphones but I have two closed (M50 and the D2000's on the way :D)
You guys know the funny thing though? The only reason I ever got the M50's was because I was settling since I couldn't really afford the D2000's and got my M50's for 90 bucks shipped, which by looking at the current prices is an incredible steal. But at this price I finally get the headphones I wanted.
Anyways, If you decide to get them Jamesesesess JR is the place to get them and for $210 you get better headphones that look good and save you cash.
P.S. As a lurker around here I don't post much (as you can tell by my post count) but I wanted to just say thank you to you guys for always recommending great headphones and helping us uninformed audiophile noobs out. Thanks a bunch!
