post #3421 of 9401

I bought the A900x about a year ago. I love the sound. They're fantastic headphones. I have two complaints about them though. 1. The clamping force is just too strong. 2. They get pretty hot and uncomfortable too quickly. Still, I do not plan on getting rid of them. They sound too good. I may look into getting a different set of pads for them though to see if that doesn't help cool them down a little and ease the clamping pressure.

I've already sort of fallen into that trap.

  • August - HD25 ALU
  • September - DX50
  • October - Apex Glacier
  • November - NAD HP50
  • December - VK-1
  • February - M-Audio Q40, Sansa Fuze V1 (albeit traded with MTPGs)
  • March - Alpha Pads, Portaphile 627 Micro

Trying to stop now :D

Yeah, I'd recommend never adding it up again. I've done that before.... it's not pretty.

I swear I almost got a heart attack when I added it up. Turns out I've spent nearly the same amount as the life savings I currently have (but won't touch).

650s were cheaper then Razors but I decided to go with Razor
http://www.shoppingclick.com/Sennheiser_HD650_Headphone
Do the 600s come with warranty?

 

Probably not. You'd have to ask Sennheiser but I doubt they are an authorized dealer. Some sites are authorized in their country but not authorized to sell to the US so the US warranty is void. Either way I'd say chances are slim.

Just think, there are scads of people who've spent that much just on one pair of headphones. Or twice that much on an amp.

From Bottlehead:

 

To celebrate our new shopping cart we are having a 10% off sale on everything for 24 hours. As we serve an international market, the delineation of Tuesday is a little difficult. So we went with our new shopping cart's default time zone. The sale starts on Tuesday March 11 UTC. That's about an hour from now...

Let us know if you have any issues with the discount showing up on your purchase, as we haven't tried this feature out yet.

Regards,
The Bottlehead Forum Team.

I track my IEM and headphone collection is a spreadsheet and I'm afraid to look at the total cost line anymore!

OK, thanks!

I was going to pull the trigger on a Crack and Speedball any day now, so this is great.

Turns out the 10% off essentially saves me the amount of tax, since I live in Washington state (9.5% tax). So the final price for me is what most people outside of WA state would pay without the sale.

But at least It saved me $35. Thanks!

Oh, wait. I can't be spending any more money!!!

I just realized I am following a forum that has people who have so many headphones they need excel to keep track... you people are bad influences.

 

On that note, time to shop for a set of custom IEMs... I hate you all.
