Can't believe someone is selling em...
$605 for shipping !!?? Are they being delivered on the wings of angels? That is totally outrageous.
And if they ship via UPS ,Fedex or DH L you can probably double the purchase price of the headphones due to ridiculous brokerage fees,
taxes, duties etc. Probably would be cheaper to fly to Germany and personally pick them up.
I still can't get over the $605 + shipping costs !!
I purchased my mint pair of Baby Orpheus HE-60 from Australia and paid less than $40 for shipping !
Cracked me up as well. Ebay = Genius.
About 10-11 years ago, at the NY stereophile show, they had an Orpheus system and a Stax SR007 system (with an 007t amp) in the same room and I spent a good deal of time listening to both.
I remember firmly concluding that both were pretty great and sounded different but each had plusses and minuses and I could not decide which I liked better.
So I concluded that the Stax system was quite a bargain. I did think the Orpheus was more comfortable though, since the old Mark 1 SR007 had too shallow pads for me.
But for overall sound quality and insight into the sound, and the combination of detail and smoothness, it was a draw to me.
The music was classical and Jazz.
