I came really close to odering more than one too.

I think you save a little on shipping.

Which is like 7 bucks for one.

These are supposedly good phones, I wish I had more info on them.

Reviews etc...

Hmmm, they look like they borrow much from the design of the Sony F1 (which I love). I went ahead and ordered a pair to compare.

I ordered 2 pair of these. Since, Aiwa is a sister company of Sony, I expect this cans to borrow many characteristics from the F1. Well, I'll let you know in 7 days.

Why are some of you people buying more than one? It leaves none for anyone else. They're out of stock.

Guys,
The reason I bought two is b/c I plan to give these to my sister, and my gf. Sorry.

I would think it's out of stock not so much as because of us, but probably more so because of the guys at Anandtech, where traffic is insanely heavy. The guys there probably snapped most of the 'phones up...

It was on techbargains.com since this morning...so expect many to stock them up for sale. For me, I plan to give this away to my folks, since I have HD-600 and ATH-A100ti already.

Anybody want to buy me a pair and send it to me (in Finland)?

The company doesn't to international deliveries.

I don't have PayPal (I don't trust that company with my credit card data as it doesn't comform to FTC/SEC banking requirements), but I can send pure old cash


Anyone?

regards,
Halcyon

If anyone still wants these, they're available at Outpost.com for $29.99. With 2 day air, my price came to $37.77........still a lot better than anywhere else.

Goober, i want to use one to mount grado sr80's in the band


let's hope they're not as bad as fry's (outpost.com's) last deal of senn hd570's


besides, they're 16 ohms. nice long 15' cable. made for tv viewing. at 16 ohms i expect them to saturate very easily. who knows, a sound blaster should be able to drive them easily. and all portables.

halycon - i'll think about it
