And it's like turning the screw on a torture device. The wider the split the more the clamp becomes excruciating. 

 

I jest, but unfortunately, I've never got on with the on-ear models. Amperior is such a deal at this price...if it only weren't for the comfort!

I was thinking of perhaps getting the Audioengine D3 or the Dragonfly for the Mac or my Mac Air, but was thinking the the Swan M50W's would be Pee-lenty of sound for that small room (think small computer room that shares the pantry (dry food stuffs) and then continues on to our small laundry room w/ spare refrigerator.  Call it a room that's 8ft by 8ft or something like that.  It's not my primary audio system.

 

Am I missing something here?  I'm not hardcore like a lot of you guys I'm learning from.

I have multiple killer vintage systems but my work office one has a Realistic receiver from 1973 feeding an Altec Lansing 2.1 system via a Scoche converter and it sounds wonderful and thumps.  Lots of ways to get good sound.

With regular headbands, if you so much move anywhere near horizontal with them, the headphones are bound to move. With the split headband you can do a cartwheel and you'll still have audiophile music pumping. I wear a size 7 5/8 hat and the clamp on the Amperiors are comfortable, could be different ear shapes maybe? Nothing like a Beyer DT880 Pro clamp when new, now THAT was uncomfortable for the first month and that's with one of the most comfy earpads on the market!!

Oh and once again: Mine in the classifieds they'll pass for new and I'll do $125 with 2-3 day shipping.

I had fixed $65 in my mind as my purchase point.  A bunch sold at once a couple days ago and the Amazon inventory got down to the last 2.  Then, the price shot back up to $150.

 

Since these are supposedly discontinued, I thought I missed an opportunity.  To my surprise, the Amazon inventory spiked back up to 14 but pricing is staying (for now) at $150.  

 

Expect they'll dive to the $60's again.  Not a bad deal at $80 though based on reviews.

 

Yeah, I didn't know about camelcamelcamel until your post(so thanks for the enlightenment) but I saw them for the 70 something $ a week or so ago... Then I checked again, after it had shot up to $150. Surprise surprise!  Also the Philips X1s shot up $60 around the same time.

Anyways, that is a nice roller coaster ride of a graph, lol. I was like dang, but then ran across the other deal. Plus there was also a code for 10% off that worked through the 26th on the sheetmusicplus.com offer.

 

Another deal was(if you live in Australia) on Catch of The Day... 50 AUD for the white HPH-200s, which is $47, but only available to Australians. That is practically a steal for the headphones from what I've read. I just checked again on that site, and I guess they sold out of all the Yamaha HPs they had.

 

Hope they impress! If you get a pair, I mean eventually, could you do a comparison to your HD558s? That would be awesome as I would be curious to know.

 I was watching them too, trying to decide on buying a used pair from someone here or waiting to see if they came down a little more in price.  Then they jumped from $230 to $292.  The (Amazon) used prices also went up from under $200 for "like new" to $224.

post #5877 of 7198

I've been watching the x1's as well and just as I was going to buy a pair they went up to 260+. Waited a week and they were back down to 232 on Monday(when I bought mine). Now up to 290. If you were waiting for a pair I would wait a week as 235ish seems to be the more regular price on amazon.

 

BTW. If you did not know camelcamelcamel lets you set price alerts where it will email you when the item drops below the price you want. I've used it a couple of times. It's real handy for overcoming Amazon's price swings without giving in to the OCD.

+1

That, and I use camelcamelcamel's price alerts in conjunction with Slickdeal alerts in case someone catches a better deal elsewhere on the web and posts at Slickdeals. Unfortunately, Slickdeals doesn't follow all the great headphone purchasing sites that Head-Fiers like, so you still have to follow the Deals Discussion thread and get sucked into spending money on all the great deals posted here smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, that's a headphone I would eventually want to try out but may be out of my price range. I probably wouldn't use it enough to justify the spending. Those and the HD558s seem like great headphones in my opinion as well as the HPH-200s I ordered; I have heard the Senns briefly a while back. A comparison between these three would be nice... Rational, not-spending, thinking is hard when you want something you know would be good haha! The enticement of this thread tho...

 

Anyways, ahem deals yes. The HD 518, HD 558, and HD598 are $71, $111, and $142(respectively) like new through Amazon right now if anyone wants to jump on those. Not quite the best, but solid deals in my opinion!

 

Also Philips are starting to drop again! ...a little

$264
