I'm willing to spend around $150 (more than the cost of the headphones. LOL), but cheaper is appreciated, all things being equal.

 

Whatever you do, make sure the cable stays within that little groove between the two parts of the headband...the cable will VERY easily slice and lose the signal. It happened to me on the first pair I bought.

Yeah I noticed that... I've been keeping the wire in place pretty tight, or have been keeping the headband apart. Overall insane deal for $119. I think they're well worth $200. Build quality is great yet at the same time one needs to be careful with certain parts like the cable and the extenders. LOL. I do like them a lot however. Keepers for sure. Sennheiser should have released these for $199, and available everywhere not just at the Mac Store. They would have done better I think....

I just found out yesterday of the lower price deals for the Amperiors. I am finally ready to jump on these headphones after the long wait of a price drop, but if anyone owns both the Amperiors and V-Moda M80s who could give me more of an idea of what to expect than just what I have read from tiny comparisons here and there, I would greatly appreciate it. xD

Been a while since I had the m 80 but I would say the amperior is more aggressive. There is a lot more treble energy and bass punch. Mids are still good but maybe a bit recessed. were super bassy when I got them but it's toned down. m80 is smoother. Amperior isolates better.

Since Amazon now selles them for $149 I took the plunge and ordered them. It's the blue version for this price. I decided against the Momentum on ear as I have an older HD 25-1 and love it.

Don't feel bad. The price is up again at $195. Must have been a small batch for 149. Still don't have it yet delivery takes its jolly good time.

They were $129 on newegg for the silvers for quite a while. Guess they sold out though.

The blue Amperiors are going for $129.95 on Newegg. I grabbed a pair this morning. Should be a good replacement for my Sennheiser HD238.

How is it overall when comparing with SR225i ... Wondering if wooden mod 225i would be comparable with these headphone ...

Recently sold my wooden SR80i ... Just wondering if I should get SR60i or SR225i, wooded mod or just get this instead ...

 

Someone mentioned these would be discomfort to whom wear glasses ... That worries me, even if they are superior to comparing grados ...

Anyone know if the ear pads from the newer HD-26 would fit the amperior?They are supposed to be a fair bit more comfy.
