What about the 449? Seems to be the newer version of the 439 and not bad for $80.

I haven't heard the 449. I think you can get the HD558 for $110 or so new. Probably should be most decided whether you need a closed back headphone or not. The HD558 is open.

Get the H3. For $90 more you are getting much much better sound.

So I've lurked these forums for quite a while. Figured I'd post where I just got what I think is a smoking deal. Picked up a like new set of AKG Q701's in green for $75.66 T this page:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GHY0IG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

There's nothing there now, but it might be worth keeping an eye on if you're in the market for these. It's kind of a strange listing with the German description, and when I googled the ASIN number it corresponded to the UK and German Amazon sites. I'll be sur to post back when it arrives with pictures.

I plan on using this as a headset with an Astro Mixamp. Now the search begins for a headphone amp and/or DAC.

I've posted this before, but the Sennheiser HD 598s are still $150 from fry's. Obviously not as good at $106 open box, but the deal is on!
Last time I posted this someone went on a tirade about how horrible fry's service is... I bought these for $187, then got $37 refunded over the phone when the price dropped to $150 and THEN returned them later due to finding a deal on open box Sony MA-900s. So all in all, I think it's a good place to buy smily_headphones1.gif

What did you get the MA900 for if I may ask? And where?

While the 598 is listed on their site for $150, that deal is only on existing stock in-store. I did an inventory search and found only the following two stores report stock:

 

Webster,TX 21300 Gulf Freeway | All items available

Milton, GA 3065 Webb Road | All items available

 

Good new if you live anywhere near either of those locations. SoCal has been cleaned out for awhile. Anyone affiliated w/Frys please let us know if there are more options.

As I mentioned before, Best Buy price-matches Fry's (it's in their list to PM). So, if your Best Buy has stock, you can price match there. Or, call Best Buy's 800 number and price-match that way.

I bought them at the sony store in the galleria mall in Houston. I had to dig around their closet full of open box models. They had 2 of them which did not come with a box or carrying case. $150 and they threw in a free warranty (2 years I believe) with it.

http://bloxearphone.com/purchase.htm

 

Not a sale (deal) per say, but the Blox BE5 is back in stock for $95 shipped.

 

I bought one from the "first batch" and they sound like the GR07BE without the isolation and prone to sibilance.

These are my only higher end pair of earbuds so I cannot compare to the likes of other Blox or Yuin pairs.

 

I also use Yurbud covers http://yurbuds.com/products/enhancers/

$10 for 2 pairs

 

These covers help with comfort, bass improvements, and keeps them on the ear from tugs.

 

EDIT: I clicked refresh on the Blox site and they just got out of stock.

How low is this price in the grand scheme of things (compared with other prices this keyboard has sold at, and the average price for a mechanical keyboard)?
