Yea, that is what I remember too. That's a killer bargain.

dealers also got to buy them for 20% off, so that's the only way that could happen again

I think that's what I got at Fedex.

 

UPS is a $3 per 100, which explains why it's so much.

 

BTW, just sent them out to whitetriton this early afternoon and sent both of you a PM.

$3 per $100 is quite the deal for them when they probably only lose/damage less than 1 in 10,000 packages

I am going to be back from my trip on Tuesday, so maybe I can still get the phones?

I now have the XC headphones, received this afternoon. They are in great shape,no smoke smell, no issues.

I'm listening to them on my vintage Pioneer Spec system, comparing side by side with both my TH900 and D7000 (both Lawton modded). First item of note is they are considerably heavier than either yet seem quite comfortable due to the great pads. I'll know if the weight is a problem soon, as I had neck surgery a few months ago and am not fully recovered.

Good looking phones, all three, and all sound great tho at first blush I'd say the XC comes in third place to my preference.

Thanks as always for the privilege of auditioning these masterpieces.

That's about exactly how much I paid for shipping (with $1800 insurance, tracking). No idea how it's costing some of you guys so much!

avoid the post office, UPS, and 3rd party shipping stores
