What is the best/hottest deal you ever got on headphones? - Page 3

post #31 of 197
I got my lcd-2 for $600 shipped
JH16 for $625 shipped.
Tf10-just the earpieces $50
Miracles $425 shipped
Got my first stock t50rp for $20 shipped.

That D5000 and D7000 deals looked killer.

I saw on the forum a couple months ago 2 K701s for $85 each they went before I could get them...

Where did you get the LCD2s for that cheap?!

Audiogon.  I have seen an LCD-2 for under $600 once and only once, it was $575 shipped, but of course was gone within minutes.

That's about all I could see myself paying for a LCD-2, honestly...

I got a pair of DT-250/80 for $70 shipped. In like-new condition.

 

Not a popular pair, but I like 'em.

post #37 of 197

Hmm..

 

HD650 - $275 (this was 3 months ago, so long after the price inflation)

Audioquest Dragonfly - $150

HE 500 - $545 

CAL - $30

 

I really don't buy gear unless I can get a great deal on it - it's the thrill of the hunt!

Sennheiser HD25-1 new for $105

Yamaha HPH-200 new for $92

Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium 32 Ohm new for $177

 

Great deals you got guys, am very impressed and should do some more bargain hunting.

I got a pair of old Grado Headphones at a yard sale a couple weeks ago for $25. Guy wanted $30 but I bargained them down.
They seem to be a discontinued model. 
I think the model number is HP-1. They're mostly all shiny metal, stainless steel or aluminum or something.

They sound pretty good, actually.
The foam things on the earpieces were all crumbling and when I took them to a dealer to try to get them fixed he said he had a pair of headphones like that when he was in college. He said he'd stay up late listening to Pearl Jam on them. 
He said he'd trade me straight up for one of the new Grados, an SR-80 I think. 
I can't get back there until tomorrow, but I want to do the deal before he changes his mind.

I wouldn't do it. Keep them and get new earpads for them!

But the dealer is going to give me a Brand New Pair! 
Which means I'll be getting a pair of $100 headphones for only $30.
Talk about a smoking hot deal!

You should really Google the HP-1. They are worth more than the SR80 unless they are in absolutely terrible shape (earpads are easily swapped.) They were a very limited production model.

A new pair of AH-D7000 for $620 inc. shipping, I was pretty happy with that deal.
