DEAL OF THE CENTURY!!!!!!!!!

BOOOOOOOOM!

$97 for the $299 retail AKG K550

Personally I bought these at full retail at Best Buy last weekend, and returned them. I didnt let them burn in because I knew they werent worth $300 to me because of the lack of bass IMO.

However, these are so damn comfortable, for $97 I think this deserved its own thread. I would imagine this is either an error or a blow out sale. Either way, they are probably worth $97.

Enjoy!

Sorry I forgot to mention they were reconditioned. This still seems to be a great deal.

It's OOS.

Yo,

 

Reconditioned still makes them nearly new. They fix any defects and replace any busted parts. Still an awesome deal if you ask me, but well nobody is..

My guess? The mark-up is either high enough that they can eat that, or they have a glut of them from them coming back as returns and/or both.

Not a bad price for a pair of headphones overall, especially if the reviews are to be believed about these (I haven't heard them but c'mon, 66% off!).

I ordered 2 pair. Have order confirmation. Who knows if they will actually ship. I was afraid this would be over quickly. Posted in 2 threads so people could get some eyes on it.

So if we see you suddenly dumping a bunch of these on the FS forum for $200/ea we'll know why? tongue.gif

(KIDDING!)

discrete - is there a package forwarder you could use (or would it defeat the cost savings)? I know they exist for Japan -> US, I'm sure something has to exist for US -> Malaysia.

I guess it will still be cheaper. But it is out of stock now. I'm always out of luck frown.gif

*IF* they actually ship, I'll pass a pair along to the BST for $150

Yeah out of stock. Deal of the century for about an hour. rolleyes.gif

OP did you ever try some bass boosting?

No. Was completely underwhelmed at $300 retail. I'm at a minimum going to let the new pair burn in fully. At under $100 I have no problem using them for acoustic and live music recordings. At retail I just didn't see them fitting into my rotation enough to justify. The k550 is EASILY the most comfortable headphone ive ever worn though.
