Does Jan even have a retail floor?? I seriously doubt he would sell demo units without notifying people. In fact-I know Senn got on him about a year or less ago for selling the HD800 cheap, and had to raise his prices at that time. None of the 2 (3?) I bought from him had any indication that they were anything other than N.I.B.

I presume you are right and that he only sells new ones. I think the Sennheiser rep was talking bull-crap. I am currently trying to find his name. When i do i will make a compliant.

Maybe shoot Jan an email too-I'm sure he can probably clarify this-at least I'm sure he's want to set the record straight either way-especially in regards to the rep's comments...

The sliders on my hd800's headband seem to have loosened up a bit over time, and I was curious if anyone has experienced this or knows of a way to tighten them/increase whatever resistance is supposed to prevent inadvertent sliding?  The cups don't ever slide when I'm wearing them, but when I pick them up by the headband, one cup or the other sometimes slides a notch.  Annoying.

Ah... The CF cups caught my attention.  They look very attractive.

Perhaps it was because he's openly selling them outside of EU and Senn doesn't like it.

 

I paid also 950€ for fresh new from a computer retail store, advertised price. I consider that the "standard" anyone should accept to pay (like those italian stores).

 

(950€ - ~20% VAT = ~1100 USD)

Nice headphone stand. Could you tell me the model/brand? Looking for something similar. I like the adjustment in height and the fact it can carry two headphones.

Oh, my bad. After some googling I found out it's the HPS-T from Woo Audio. Very nice :)
