    The pivot points can squeak pretty uncomfortably, but a little lithium grease can solve that in no time. Just need lithium grease and tooth pick. But I'm sure others can chime in with a better way.

    I'm thinking of pad change to reduce head clamp, maybe v6 or m50 pads.

    M50 pads just barely fitted with hours of tugging, and the firm with thinner pads still had a strong head clamp; so it's on the stretcher.

    The sound is open and has the sansa house sound which is very pleasing and comforting. Detail retrieval I think is pretty good.

    Ha! Yeah, typically do. Actually, I make a concerted effort to do both when I can...holding off on cans I'd like to get until they hit a price I like.

    I try to take a similar attitude...there are select headphones that if they drop to a certain price I'd get them just to try it..
    I wanted the fidelio X2 for a few years, but didn't get a set until they were $99.
    $33 for the Spadgers was low enough I would have pulled the trigger if I had seen it in time, I always wanted to hear the open backed version of those...
    I just checked and Monpprice has them on sale for $45...that's a great deal.

    Were the Monoprice Electrostats always 299 as well? That is the current 'sale' price.

    That's for your money back. I saw a 5 year warranty.

    Open boxes only come with 30 days warranty AFAIK.

    Looks like Amazon Warehouse is taking 20% off a lot of their inventory today, and there are a number of headphones included. One example is the WH1000XM3, Used - Very Good, comes out to $208.75 at checkout. There are a number of headphones from Audio-Technica, Koss, Monoprice, Jabra... Might be worth checking out.
