Eek! Well, it all got a bit aggressive towards the end of the auction and I just really wanted them, so kept bidding. They seem quite rare and looked in really nice condition on the photos.
Maybe I have paid a little too much, but by all accounts they are better than the new K240, so I've paid less than that, which is fine by me.
I've seen them on completed listings go for more and less than that, so I guess I wouldn't lose that much if I didn't like them and decided to sell them again.
I've never owned any AKGs, so I'm very excited about receiving this vintage pair! I'll have to get a nice set of Beyers next, complete the collection Edited by amigomatt - 3/3/13 at 2:13am
