Yea, that's pretty good for open box. If I ever see them at that price I might just give them at try, could be my first Senn since most of the other ones (600,650) are way up in price.

It's a good Senn but not particularly revealing of the house sound. I'm not sure where Senn adopted the HD598 but its not a biological child.

What other $100 range would give a good Senn sound with quality sound (for the price)?

The HD439 or HD558 will give a good look to the Senn house sound, embodied in the HD600 and HD650.

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?

post #4407 of 10882

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.
