That's sort of like speculating what kind of supercar you could have bought if you hadn't bought any gas for you mustang. Interesting to think about maybe but entirely pointless.

Moral of this story? Buy the headphones that make you happy. Congrats on finding something that does that.

Is there any chance Amazon will sell them at a discount again, or was it just a one time thing?

post #10311 of 18748

I think the consensus is that the five second sale at ~$890 was a one time mistake.  However, I just picked up a used set that was perfect for ~$1,100 no warranty but you have a 30 day return. Senn is selling refurbished for around ~$1,270 with 90 day warranty.

Although it will be a chase to try and find the best amp for the hd800. The price for them is almost a bargain
At list price. And for me the HDVD 800 as amp only is end game for these headphones anyway .
In balance mode anyway. Is anyone hear useing the senn amp ?

yeah. won't see new prices that low again. but the used market is slowly coming down. i also got one for $1100 that is absolutely mint, and i've seen it advertised for cheaper in the f/s forum.

I just got a brand new pair for $1,200 from a local dealer. Felt like a good deal to me

Wait for xmas or national sale day if you can wink.gif

From that special showroom place where you have that card from?

From bay bloor radio.
But truth is when you call any headphone store and ask for an insane price they will give you the best Deal.

For example, I called ncix and ask t1 for $720 CAD including tax and shipping
they cpunter offered for $999.

And we settle for $899. wink.gif

Always try to make some deal. wink.gif

Agreed I just recently purchased my HDVD800 Amp/DAC new for 1699 negotiated, and my HD800 for $1299. I made multiple calls to different online resellers and went with the best price, mom always ask, you never know.

I thought Sennheiser was getting strict with their pricing now. For around $1200-$1300, I might as well consider it new.
