Well mine shipped few weeks later but I still got one.  Here's what I learned from amazon price error.  If you have multiple accounts, use both accounts.  If you only have one account(I doubt it), don't order multiple items at once.  Order one, then order another, and etc.

I still wonder if the $889 HD800 was a pricing error or just getting rid of slow moving, excess inventory near end of year. Found out later that the headphone I got was about 3000 serial numbers behind the current production, so it's been sitting in their warehouse for a while. Great price obviously, but Amazon was probably still making a couple hundred dollar off each. Only Sennheiser was butthurt over the pricing since they're so strict on it, but it's not like they can abandon Amazon as a vendor.

If I understand correctly it only lasted like 40 minutes so whatever it was, it was amazon burning money wastefully. Even if they needed to get rid of inventory they could have done so in a day by setting the price at like 1299.

Nah it was $1350 standard from all vendors during the holiday season. $50 wouldn't have made a difference. Plus even with Razor dog selling their remaining stock for $1200, it's going nothing like the Amazon sale. $1000 would have probably yielded similar results.

I'm guessing tons of HD800 buyers don't know about the crazy razordog code, and he probably can't advertise it widely otherwise he'll get into trouble. If you look, even Crutchfield sells out constantly and they're selling refurb models for $1,100 (although to be fair they're just like a new HD800 for all practical purposes, setting aside that "I don't want to buy an icky used can' notion)

 

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jm2ggLCwTk7/p_143HD800R/Sennheiser-HD-800-Factory-Refurbished.html out of stock again. although when buying mine I asked and they said they usually fill orders in a week or two.

Yes--and awareness of Razordog and their reach into the potential market are both just a bit below that of Amazon.

Just make sure you don't fire to clean it of the used ick. Works well on surgical tools but not hd800s

Do some people have so much ear wax that they need to use what is essentially a vacuum cleaner to suction it out?

My kids seem to have more wax than I do by far - I think as you age, wax becomes less of an issue.
