You're way above the HD6x0/DTXXX/K7XX price range, but getting very close to the HD800/LCD2/etc. range. You might as well go right for a flagship.

I hear you and I don't disagree. I don't mean to brag but I was able to get the HD 700 (Brand new) from Amazon.com $483 shipped + tax. And thus a little conflicted. I am playing it non-stop with different genres and may end up keeping the HD 700 + Shure SRH1540 combo. I'll get a chance at AXPONA next month to test out many more headphones in case I like something better :) 

 

Let the headphone games begin...

At this very moment, the SR-009 is available brand new for $2,873 (plus shipping) from PriceJapan.

I got mine privately "like new" for more than you got yours brand new. O_O

 

How did you get it that cheap?! The lowest new price I see on Amazon is barely under $700.

 

I'm buying an HE-500 later this week as well. Wonder if I should pursue a trade for an EL-8 Open-Back or even HD 800 with what resources I have.

Well. Amazon.de had it for $492 shipped. I tried to use my Amazon Store Card overseas and there was no option to be able to do that. Called Amazon cust service to see how we can do that (helps me increase my credit limit the more I use it and pay it off). Any way I was being bounced around between Amazon cust service - store card cust serv - bank cust serv - amazon.de - back to amazon.com

 

Eventually the rep asked what it was I was trying to buy and if .com had it. I said it's this pair of headphones been sitting in my cart for weeks. She said here, normally we'd never do this but I'll price match it to .de and also give you a $ off for every minute of bouncing around between diff cust service reps. $492 - $50. Have a good evening.

 

I said: sold!

I've had some luck as well, but nothing as interesting as that!
