    It does if you buy it through Amazon. That's been the price since the beginning of July. My goal was to post quickly while the deal it was available. Had I taken the time to fully research historical pricing before posting I could have said that $1300 seemed to be the going rate in June but...

    B&H Photo has their Sony 7506 copy, the Senal SMH-1200 on daily deal for $60 shipped in 3 colors. I have a set in cranberry red and am quite pleased with them. Just as interesting, they have a bundle deal with these headphones and the portable ULTRASONE Panther DSD DAC Amp for $260. The bundle...

    Test of the DS600 on ASR measures like a D50s clone. Of course, support, firmware updates, and consistency between units likely differs quite a bit. But, nice price.

    UPDATE: Mine just arrived. I am very pleased. They remind me most of the JBL Everest 750NC in terms of fit/finish/comfort. More upscale than the 750 in terms of a lot better noise cancelling and a 2 level ambient mode, better codex including LDAC and Aptx HD. The sound is a be more neutral than...

    Denon direct has put some of their headphones on sale again. Sadly no AH-D5200, but some very good prices on select models. The AH-D1200 is at $60, down from $70 in the last sale. I got a pair then like them very much. Kind of mini-D5200s. Sound sig and comfort is similar, Very good build...

    the "Specials" page shows several other less expensive Denon headphones and portable speakers at excellent discounts. I guess they do not have real time online inventory checks.

    It certainly is a very low price. The associated Amazon listing shows a Rademax F11 which only became available on Amazon today. However, it has 30+ all five star reviews. How do they do that? A hole in Amazon's system allows reviews for other totally different products to shown in a listing...

    That's odd. They charge me return shipping and I have Prime. They do not charge return shipping in certain categories (like most clothing), but they do unless you tell them the item was defective on my Prime Account on electronics and most other items. Now Amazon is allowing you to...

    You will be out the return shipping on the item you send back. There is no honest way around that. But, depending on the price difference and the return shipping cost, you are right, this is often the best way. Amazon will provide a paid return label but deduct the cost from your refund on...

    Yes, but note, this is the wired noise cancelling version. If you want the Wireless noise canceling Space one New Egg has those as well for $130. These prices have been available before...seems to be a closeout. But, nice phones for the $

    Chromecast audio - can anyone comment on sound quality?

    Just announced...a great speaker to connect to your Chromecast Audio's Optical Output! The new Amazon Studio Smart Speaker has a toslink optical input! Only sort of kidding. With 5 drivers and built in auto-room equalization it is intriguing at $200 retail.

    Note "Refurbished" TCL. Still a good price. I got the 49" TCL in the same 517 series new from Amazon during Prime Days for $250 and am really impressed with it. There have been some discussions on deals sights about possible "banding" issues, particularly on returned TVs. Mine looks great...

    There were/and still are LOTS of good deals on this year's prime. That is, there are hundreds (probably thousands) of items below their previous all time low prices. I picked up a TV, a smartphone, and then a lot of stuff I actually need, and spent about a grand. There were fewer actual...

    It was PlantsmanTX of course, who has already received a huge percentage of likes vs posts. Thanks again too. I originally purchased primarily because my gigantic head is the exact size of his attached photo shown on a 27" monitor :wink: One of Tyll's last videos described the headband in some...

    Does anyone know a source for the screw sets....or perhaps an idea on other screw combos that will work. I have an original 560 with the plastic yokes...so no screws. My original band has been fine so far, but I would hate to have it break when I try to remove it and then not have the hardware...

    It appears to be the same as or very similar to this one in the Hifiman Store at $125. Except, that one comes with the screws.

    Price is nice. The original 560v2 was discontinued because the headband was too small for most heads. I understand Hifiman sent Adorama normal head size band replacements. I wonder if these are the tiny head original or the normal head sized replacements.

    The active codes should work for anyone. And they can be used more than once.
