It is refurbished.
BTW Do you plan sell yours? Your 580 looks very nice. Just Kidding.

Thanks anyway.

But... I would confirm they're the "new" version, before ordering them.

I don't know... but... don't think so.

It wouldn't make any difference anyway - they'll still provide a new warranty.

By the way... better order the HD600 screens, and the HD650 cable at the same time - to fully emulate the sound of the HD600s.

No... I won't be selling my modded HD580s soon. And... yes they are beautiful - with the HD600 screens, and the Beyer headband - they're turly some of the best looking phones available.

And... with the right set up... there's almost no other phones, which sound as good.

I have new q:
let's put it this way:
Choice 1: I get the 580 at 190 then spend another 100 at mod like screen and cable.
Choice 2: I get the brand new 600 at 300
Choice 3: I get the used 650 at 300

I will use the darkvoice 332 (maybe tube upgrade like already found
Tung-Sol Mil-Spec 6AK5 5654 Little Dot Amp Tubes-NOS).

Which one is my best choice now?

FS forum sometimes had HD580 with essentially new condition. Why not consider those? I just sold my extra HD580 two days ago. The box is not in perfect condition, but the phone is never taken out of the box.

Amazon.com can ship head phone to Canada that surprised me anyway.



when did amazon.com start shipping to canada? i've been waiting for this to happen for a long time.

and if amazon.com does ship to canada, will we still get hit with customs taxes?

EDIT: did some reading on their site. only certain items are available for international shipping. luckily, headphones are one of them. also, as expected, canadians are subject to customs taxes as well as import taxes.

Really no choice...

Get the HD580s with the screens and cable (not $100 - very inexpensive).

The HD600s still need the cable, and are "ugly as sin" + they cost more.

The HD650s just don't have the balanced sound with the same bright highs as the HD580/600s.

With the DV332 - "you'll be in heaven."
