do take note 1/5th of the price is added VAT. Still, 1500 euro base price is a bit steep. Hopefully the retail price will be lower than the MSRP, which I'd have to make a special order for them like I had to do with the HD800, so I reckon most shops won't be selling them any time soon below catalog price.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
too bad they will cost 1750 euro (incl vat) in Belgium according to my local akg dealer...price is way too steep for me if it wants to compete with the hd800.
I wish I could atleast hear them, see how well they'd compare to my balanced hd800 setup.
it does seem like a great thing they can atleast perform great from a source like a phone etc.
the price is what I got in my mail... maybe my local akg dealer wants to make some extra bucks (which I highly doubt or he made a typo himself or the actual price is higher than was first estimated everywhere)

Maybe you should ask him again... AFAIK, K812 are really going to cost 1199EUR (including all fees).
I mailed him just now and he replied me to mail him the official price announcement of the product as the distributor told him the price was going to be 1750 euro vat included. He also told me the estimation in the past for the HD800 were also way lower until sennheiser announced the retail price of the HD800, so maybe the price of 1750 euro in Belgium is right.
I haven't found a real announcement of AKG myself concerning the price of the K812 and only found the estimate of 1000 pounds on both headfi as on other websites.
Let's hope the distributor is wrong about the price... I reckon it's time for AKG to release the actual price of the unit so the speculation stops.

The info I got, came from AKG / Harman Austria, so, lets wait another month and we will know, as they told me that expected release across Europe will be around beginning of December, we will see.
HI Guys!i was telling you 3 weeks ago the Price will be 1300 euros in Europe and not higher!so this speculation of the Price is Nonsense!regards NOMAX
1300 euros? Thats 100 more than expected...?
Well, this is just a guess, or would I say, a big wish, but, we should wait and see, patience = gold.
