Get deep discounts on open-box, like-new, refurbished, or used products that are in good condition but do not meet Amazon.com's rigorous standards as "new". Prior to offering an item for sale on Amazon Warehouse Deals, we verify its physical and functional condition. All purchases are backed by Amazon's A-to-z Guarantee. If you are unsatisfied with the product for any reason, you can return it in accordance with Amazon's return policy. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service.
Please note that used products are not covered by the original manufacturer's warranty.


So unless an item is listed as used the warranty should apply.

I'm still wondering if AW is where the T1s are found for $500 though.


Perhaps you should contact Amazon to make sure that open-box, like-new, refurbished products are not considered to be "USED."  I was just looking at Amazon at the Beyerdynamic T1 Tesla Audiofile Stereo Headphones under the USED tab, and all of them naturally do come up as USED, although those being sold by Amazon Warehouse are listed as Like New, Very Good, and others are described as "Open Box."  So are all of those not covered by the warranty or are they covered?  If you look at one of the used headphones listings there by a third party seller, it does says that it has the year warranty.  Email Amazon to make sure before buying.

It's prohibited to lower the prices on these products in comparison with the MSRP.

And I think it's very good.


False. Audeze LCD-2 (both Bamboo and Rosewood) was recently discounted by 20% by Audeze themselves and other dealers on Black Friday.

Sign up for their newsletter to get notified of deals. It comes with both an amp and the headphones. To me, the default amp with headphones combo beats anything priced in the $600 range, other than HE-500. I've heard with a better amp, it beats the Lambda series of Stax. According to this recent reddit post on comparing flagship headphones semi-objectively, http://en.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/1texuh/the_state_of_the_flagships_analysis_of_the/ , the ESP950 gets a decent 7/9, and is rated higher than T1 or TH900.

 

I think there are a lot of issues inherent with that link, and supplied approach to measurements. I wouldn't suggest anyone buys a high end headphone purely off those conclusions, especially as it appears someone ranked headphones without ever listening. Some pretty basic mistakes stand out in the benchmarks used as well. I don't think it's wise to take much of any advice from the headphones subreddit either, unless you're buying and O2/A1/M50

I meant discounts ran individually by some dealers, without the authorization of Audeze.

When the brand accepts and allows a promo(discount) campaign, it's another sort of discount.

Anyone know if these guys ship over seas? I can't find any info about international shipping on their website.

There's something wrong at camelcamelcamel it seems, because I found my T1 post and I paid only $535 in June 2012.
