I live in Thailand where there are only 2 vendors. One sell them at $300, the other sell them at $285. I guessing if I am able to get a discount it would be around $5 to $15 max. Would this make the $160 even a better buy you think?
I am only going to buy it if it is a really good deal because I am weighting between three options of hd600/650, audio technica ad900x (where i can buy from amazon third party Japan and ship it to Thailand total cost around $220 I believe) and this hd598. As I already own a he-400, and feel that it is uncomfortable for long listening period so I am looking to find another complementary pair to switch between the he-400. Of the three, what do you think would fit my bill as I would want something that excels in female vocals and decent mids.
