don't worry. more like you missed the deal by one hour. I was checking when the deal first got posted & the "price error" got fixed really quickly.

 

didn't pull the trigger b/c I didn't have the $$$, but maybe I should have sniped a pair to sell :P

Those used at 800 are still a great deal. I bet those returns are way more likely to ship than the new ones, too.

Well I'll get to revisit it soon enough, but HE-500 or really HE-6 is a more fair fight. If you look at my chain in my sig, I did not have the Quickie when I compared side by side the HE-500 to the HD800. At that time, I'd say the it was a toss up mainly because of my choice of music genre being mostly rock or pop, and also I only have a Crack to drive the HD800. After I gave back the HD800 to my friend, I got the Quickie, and to me it really brought out depth and body to the sound for the HE-500. I maintain that my currently setup with the HE-500 sounds better than the HD800 + Crack from memory. Of course I'm sure the HD800 extends much better with better equipment. But if this ships, I guess I'll be able to compare side by side my current HE-500 setup to HD800 + Crack.

I honestly don't know what your problem with Tyll is? He might have made this hobby a profession but he's pretty objective and always backing his opinion with measurements, so when he or joker say that something doesn't sound that good and they will probably not review it, there is a reason for that. If the new AKGs were good he would have said so and would make even a video review to share his impressions. Didn't you see that k812's measurements - distortion, quite a bit of ringing and it's out of absolute polarity, which shouldn't be acceptable for headphones in this price range and he's not accepting it.

Ones from Amazon Warehouse, which are used, are going for under $800 still. All of them say they have imperfections though...

 

The interval between the OP and your post was only 28 minutes...

They were actually on sale longer than the post mentioning the sale

Actually 18 minutes. I noticed the time between the OP and the first comment about the deal was 7 minutes. That's 3 minutes of head-fiers frozen in shock, followed by rapid clicking. Took 7 minutes before people finally got everything checked out and could take the time to comment on it. :D

Huh?

 

This is a trivial pursuit, but......

 

 

I'm currently seeing a 27 minute difference between those two posts.  And yes...  the sale started before the first post and ended before the last post.  In any case, it didn't last long.

Lol thinking back now, if the HD800 ships, I would be paying including taxes, $60 less than what I paid for the HD700.

Yeah, it's pointless, but it was at least half an hour before it was announced here

Weird. I swear I get different timings. It's showing 1:30 and 1:12 for me. :confused: In any case, we can blame the warping of the space-time continuum on the absurdity of that sale.
