AC gears is definitely reputable so i'm assuming people did. As for pricing, i don't think i've seen it that low before.

 

It's still $183 on amazon which is better than the MSRP http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-DT-1350-80-Supraaural-Monitoring-Applications/dp/B004QMH8KI

 

although, it is possible it is this low because a new model is coming in, i mean the custom one pros were successful so i can see them increasing their portable headphone line.

Sennheiser's Black Friday 'deals' are absolutely laughable. Audeze and some other companies had some nice deals. Overall a disappointment though, imo.

guys I'm not complaining about the banter...I've always thought the midless chatter was part of the fun. I love bragging about a good deal (did I mention I got a new HD 650 this week for $290 shipped?)

 

I think this biggest waste of time was desperately trying, in vain, to keep the deals thread deals only and nothing else...

I know this thread was created as outlet for that, but........human nature. Oh those pesky humans....always ruining everything!

They seem to hate any sort of deals discussion. Hurts their income cause we apparently need to protect those poor manufacturers from the ever impending "race to the bottom" of prices.

I just wish audeze had a deal on the lcd-3 and not just the lcd 2, i mean i guess it makes sense because of how expensive they are but a sale would have been nice. Especially like last year with the deal on the $500 gift card deal that lowered the price of the lcd3 by a few hundred bucks last year (though that may have been a christmas deal)

 

talking about soundearphones.com by the way

For anyone after cables or DIYers, PlueSound is having a pretty nice deal: 20% off pretty much everything with coupon 'BLACKFRIDAY2013'

Ends at midnight I think.

Side note, I personally prefer the deals discussion. It can be important to verify validity, safety, and actual value of the deals posted.

It's really not that hard to glance at a post and see discussion or deal.

What whining are you talking about? The deals have been utter ****. There has been nothing worthwhile. Hell even the Klipsch X10s last year at 79 bucks were much better than anything this year. The only thing I see marginally good is the used LCD-2

 

Yes it has been a colossal waste of time and I'm glad the other thread was closed.

 

Maybe cyber monday turns it around, I doubt it though.

Actually if you go back and look at the deals thread a year ago, just as many people were b*tching about the crap deals for that Black Friday.

 

I recall a number of people complaining about the lack of HiFiMan deals.

It doesn't matter what there was last year, my point is the deals this year have been very mediocre. I think there was a DragonFly USB from Magnolia at 99 which actually ain't bad for a first time DAC.

 

In short, I don't see why people can't complain. This is the time of the year for deep discounts in retail and electronics are not the exception. Guess we will have to wait til Cyber Monday if certain sites want to drop the price on say the UE-900s as rumored, but I'm not holding my breath.

 

No skin off my nose, I'm happy where I am at audio wise. I have hit the sweet spot.

Then why are you still complaining?

Is $118.00 a good deal for the Sennheiser HD380 Pro? - Amazon has it for $139 and they take an additional 15% off (USA)

Who has a used LCD-2 deal? What is the price?

It seems like the deals were spread over the previous weeks, so when the real Black Friday hit there wasn't any bang left. Was it like this in years past?

I, for one, got a lot of good deals off of the deals thread in the past few weeks. But I only bought one item today, Friday.
