I've bought over 300 times on eBay, been ripped off twice.

HarmanAudio (AKG), sells refurb K550s with factory warranties on eBay, my winning bid was $180.

I'm a bit leery on refurb, have you had good experiences with that?

Depends on where you are bro? $199 in canada: http://www.avshop.ca/sound-amp-pa-audio/headphones/over-ear-headphones/akg-k-550-closed-back-reference-headphones 

 

Be warned they don't fit well with smaller heads! O.O"

I've only bought one refurb headphone, the K550s (from HarmanAudio), And the K550s looked like they were in "new" condition.

If the refurb K550s get a lot of return for defects, someone at HarmanAudio is going to get in trouble from their boss. So I feel safe buying from the original manufacturer.

Yeah I was thinking about that, but I read some stuff about how I could just bend them. It's surprising how many options you don't have for headphones in <200 and below with my specs

The key when buying on ebay is buying from high rated sellers. I have done that without a problem...

 

Amazon US also have the K550 for $211, you can wait if there's a price drop.
