I was also intrigued by this one, looks like a great deal for many, Andanda BT is currently the top BT headphone (?)
IMHO, it is the best open back BT headphone. Auditioned it briefly during ZMFestivus last October, courtesy of @AxelCloris
Being open back and wireless, I think significantly reduces the number of people that would actually work for... Cannot use while commuting, cannot use in office (unless you're by yourself in the office as opposed to shared office / cubicles / etc.), so for home use - why not just use wired (unless used with phone / tablet that has no 3.5mm jack).
Having said that, I am still wanting one for myself :wink:

At risk of going off topic a little, I have been wanting one myself for a while too, I believe this can be used wired into a cell phone via USB or Lightning. So that opens up some possibilities.

If you're looking for an Ananda BT, this may be a good chance.
I received an email from Audiogon with a trade-up offer from Hifiman.
It seems to be limited only by the number of people willing to trade up.
I fixed that for you.

I have no idea if the AKG K3003 are any good but they seem to be priced to move at $299 , down from $1299.

It may be the issue that these days few people are willing to spend that kind of money on an IEM with an attached wire and an inline mic, no matter the quality of sound. That's a deal-breaker for me, even at 300 bucks. One hard pull and it's up to the warranty gods.

Ahh, i've been so good about not making any audio purchases for a whole few months, but decided to jump on that one. Darn this thread!
Just a quick follow up, open box LP was defective so it's going back. Not so inclined to jump on Monoprice Open Box items in the future...

Would be good when doing chores around the house and not being tethered to an amp.
