Some guy was selling a T1 for $300. If I had the money I would've pounced on that deal , but the deal was closed in less than a day.

I got my HD800 new for $860.
I also bought a new PX100 (original model) for $50. This was a good deal because I was ready to pay almost anything for a new pair of the discontinued model.
200 euros for my Sony MDR-SA5000 brand new.
140 euros for DT990 Pro new, shipped on amazon (they're at 145usd for americans, a great deal).
180usd shipped across the atlantic for my last pair of SR325i.
50 euros for a pair of matched Ken-Rad black tops 6SN7GT tubes NOS. They usually go for much, much more.
Probably many more good deals I'm forgetting.
Fostex T10, rare vintage orthos, $20. Dude had no clue what they were. Maybe stolen?
Shure SE310, $20, store demo unit. They have a ridiculously short cable and were never meant for resale.. I'll have to get them recabled someday.
Sennheiser HD 515 -- $34
Sennheiser HD 525 -- $40
Sennheiser HD 580 -- $160
We have a local store nearby called "Unclaimed Baggage". All the merchandise in the store is literally that, unclaimed or lost baggage and luggage from airlines all over the world. When you fly, if your luggage gets lost, chances are, it ends up in Scottsboro, Alabama (U.S) at this store. They have tons of stuff !! I usually cruise by there once a month or so.
They have headphones coming out of their arse !!! They have one whole wall of cheap headphones. The really nice, expensive ones are behind the counter but they will get them out for you to try. Average prices are about 30% - 50% of retail. Some recent finds:
Audio Technica M50s -- $50
Sennheiser HD 280 pro -- $48
Bose AE2 -- $55
Klipsh Image Ones -- $22
Denon AH-NC732s -- $15
Ultrasone HiFi 450s -- $9
They regularly have tons of headphones (lower end, mostly on ear, Sonys, Panasonics, Sennheiser, JVCs, Audio Technica, Skullcandy, and others) on the cheap headphones wall for less than $10.00. They put out new merchandise daily so it is kind of the luck of the draw when you get there. Sometimes you can find bargains,other times, its just picked over junk.
