Crutchfield usually sells refurbished ones for $1100 or so. Other than that there is always the FS forums.

This Tokyo company is selling brand new 24xxxxx hd800s for 115,000 yen, or around 1100 USD.  I live in Tokyo and bought from them through Amazon.  I left 5 star approval rating.  All our communication was in English.   Depending on what your customs agents decide to do to you, this has got to be one of the cheapest options.

I communicated with the seller on this email:

Give him a try, his name is Kei

Just discovered Gregory Porter - downloaded the liquid spirit album after hearing him on Jools Holland. I think it's the best sounding album I've heard on the 800s. Stunning production and mastering .

I have his 3 albums, i prefer the other 2 - "Water" and "Be Good" also i seen him live with Roy Hargrove, it was one of the best gigs that i have ever seen.

amazing stuff -  kinda like Donny Hathaway/ Marvin Gaye with lots of jazzy overtones, the vocals are not as smooth as Marvin though.

I will look forward to checking out the other 2 albums . Speaking of well albums that make the HD800 shine , anyone got some recommendations? Maybe an album that could of slipped under the radar.

I've got "Liquid Spirit" and "Be good" and I agree with above statement. Overally fabulous albums and that sounds especially good on HD800 :L3000: .  

 

 

Since I have my HD800 I listen massively to Classical and Modern Jazz .. these last days : 

 

 

700  

 

 

 

... listening to those musics through HD800 is really sublime.
