They do come with an amp, but amazon sometiems sells them for less than $600 if you want to wait. Here you can see it.
Market price has gone up by a lot since December of last year. This is likely the best deal you're going to get for a while.
How are the ESP950's? I rarely if ever hear about them.. or any other Koss phones for that matter (cept Porta Pro, KSC75, DJx00... thats all I've ever heard) But their inventory has a ton of stuff. PRO4AA (the retro 70s one) looks extremely interesting.
Thanks for this deal.. Will probably get either the PRO4AA or the Porta Pros just for s & giggles.
Porta Pros are fun. Sound kinda shocks you when you first hear them. Nice punch and easy to love for casual listening.
Oh, and for those that were curious I got the HD650's in the mail a few hours ago and haven't taken them off my head since!! And I don't know if its just wishful thinking but these things are new. They do not in any way look like they have ever been used. Only thing that look slightly used was the box. They have new ear pads for sure and headband is also unused. They still have the clamp of a new pair as well like they've never been worn. So its either great job vminnovations or I got a steal for $298 either way I couldn't be happier I decided to pull the triggers on these bad boys and won't hesitate to buy them again if/when they go on sale again.
Warning: What $300 HD650's look like from Vminnovations.com (Click to show)
Awesome. Congrats. That echoes pretty much everything I've heard from other people getting refurbished HD650s and HD600s from reliable sellers. Basically like-new. Could be a customer return that was only used for a day or something silly like a pallet that got roughed up and the boxes were injured so they couldn't sell as brand new.
Thanks, I couldn't be happier
Yah, check out the box above and you can see it isn't in the best condition but everything thing else is perfect and was still sealed so I may have gotten lucky here. Only down side is now I'm thinking about geting the hd598 and I need to be saving up for either a better amp/dac or who knows. Last thing I need is another open can right after getting the 650's lol
!!! Someone actually bought one of these ridiculous things! I guess it's kind of like that classic story of the salesman who tries to sell something insanely overpriced, and says that most people will pass it by, but the one person who bites makes it all worth it.
Used HE-500 on TTVJ for $559
Comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. Decent deal.
