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.
