    That price dropped quickly eh ?

    DX200 and Amp8 drive my HD800S wonderfully. I may have to grab 820....lol, that pricing is attractive....also, I do not know why I am perfectly satisfied with 800S, and Stax....but I am twitching toward 820....uncontrollably ? What the hell.

    Need to resists!

    I didn't buy it from that Singapore store, no use as with shipping and import here that would add $650-700 anyway.
    I bought the one from Greygrey.
    Nice addition to my Senn collection, finally have all the Senns I want. :)

    Nice! I purchased a $1500 camera lens from them and got within 2 business days to CA. I can also confirm I did not have to pay any import duties for US. Like my camera lens, this is likely grey market so warranty would go through e-inifinty and only for one year. Fortunately, my lens is still working perfectly (Nikon) 3 years later. This is an attractive option if you want to save the dollars. If you use a credit card that offers extended warranty you may get another year of warranty.

    You can get a good set of custom inner ear monitors for less than $1000 that will not only look good but will isolate you from the outside world while providing excellent sound quality. While some people eschew the custom fit IEMs tor those with replaceable earplugs I much prefer the custom made. All you need is a trip to the audiologist to get molds of your ear canals made. I use the Ultimate Ears Reference Remastered.

    These are great for airplanes. Not so great for at home when you just want the isolation from your wife or girlfriend’s demon ears...

    My HD820 was just delivered. I ordered last Wednesday during Chinese New Year. But I got an order confirmation right away. On Monday, yesterday, I got a shipment notice. The next day, today, Tuesday, they arrived at 10:30 AM. I will let you all know how I like them after they sit all night on repeat on the CD player.
    Does anybody know how long for break in ?

    Just curious if you had to pay any custom duties for them. Thanks.

    I did not pay any duties or shipping. They ship Fed X priority. I was a little apprehensive ordering from them. I had never ordered from them before. But everything went great. Got the headphones in less then a week, from China.
    I just gave them a listen. Sound great right out of the box. So they should sound even better with some hours on them.
    I think I'm one of the lucky ones. They seem to fit fine. No leaks, and are very comfortable.

    The seller is in Hong Kong which operates free trade (no VAT, no sales tax, no import duty). I believe the US reciprocates within limits. I've never had import duty from Hong Kong and have a lot of stuff I've ordered from there. China on the other hand is a whole different story and in the middle of a trade war with US.

    I couldn't resist either and ordered last weekend. Just got shipping confirmation that it should arrive by Friday. In 6 months I've gone from my first audiophile cans ($200 6XX) to these. I hope they let me bring them to the eventual debtors prison I end up in, lol. Couldn't stop thinking about them since I gave them a listen in the San Francisco Sennheiser store recently, so I already know I'll enjoy them. Very interesting to read all the widely varied reviews, much like with my favorite HD700. I guess I'm a fan of maligned Sennheiser models.
