After checking a few sources the Sony V-6's are unavailable. Have they been replaced by the 7506's at a higher price?
Can anyone tell me where I can get the V-6's at a good price?

I got my v6s months ago from etronics.com for something like $60 plus shipping... but they are not available on that site. A good price nonetheless.

etronics has had them out of stock for some time now.

Is millionbuy going to get them in stock again? They had them for $69.99, and this is now the second time they have ran out of stock (they ran out in late summer, but got them back sometime after september i think).

I truly hope they get them back in stock, as they had a pretty good shipping rate to canadians....hehe
.

DJmart has them for $79.99 i believe. (i dont think they ship to canada though).

Please don't tell me i will have to resort to buying sony 7506's for $200CDN....

I ordered a pair from Millionbuy on Nov. 11 they said they ran out and expect to get a shipment in 2-3 weeks

I got my pair from DJ Mart just a week ago and they still had some in stock. They are discontinued, so getting more in stock won't mean they come from Sony!!! DJ Mart was $79.99, but they have them!!

I might be mistaken, but I checked Sony's seb site for all their headphones, and it's not listed. Only the V600,900 and such are.


Try: This link to Sony for more info no current models.

I hope for everyone's sake I'm wrong about this as they are quite good for so little money!!!

The v6s have been discontinued for a while now.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I thought I was right!! The trick now is to locate someone with them in stock and buy them before they are gone for good!!!

Do you know when they did so? I mean, I follow most of the threads on here, but I probably spaced out the time when they did...because I just don't remember any talk about that...

That's a shame. The V600's can't touch the V6's.

Hmmm, Fry's Electronics (a huge consumer electronics store here in California) has them in stock, I was there a couple of days ago. Of course, it just may be old stock and when they're gone, they're gone.

Yes, I remember seeing them at Fry's as well. They had a whole wall of them. This was about... maybe 2 weeks ago? A lot of Fry's stock tends to be liquiditation-type stuff, so it would make sense that the V6's were being phased out.

Fry's had them for $79.99. They also had the V700 for $149.99. I pity the average consumer buying the V700 who thinks they got cans that were twice as good as the V6's.

The V600's are very different from the V6's. In most people's opinions, they are not as good, and hardly worth the price of admission.
