Been waiting for the HD660s to get back down to this price...Thx!

Authorized dealer, No tax, Free shipping :beerchug:

I'm eyeballing the HD800S myself. That price is scarcely higher than a used pair from a dealer.

Well damn. Count me in.
Hang in there, they will go lower now that they are discontinued. They should never have been marketed @$1200.

Down the rabbit hole
I was looking at the HP3, but I thought I read some place that they definitely are not a neutral can, but maybe more mid-forward... my preference is more neutral or slightly v-shaped. Any thoughts or advice? If it helps, the cans I dislike the most would be the HD650 (I know, I will be bundled up and sent to a re-education camp for comments like that!). The cans I like the most are the Elex and so far the Ora GrapheneQ.

They are not mid forward at all, but very v shaped. Lots of bass and extended treble. Mids take a back seat, but are good nonetheless.

Hi friends, there's an Aliexpress Sale live now. I've sourced some sub $100 CHIFI well regarded sets on sale and listed them here. Please feel free to add any good deals you guys see so we can all benefit as a community. If there's any lower prices than these, please also share with me so I can update the prices, sorry my old eyes may be catching up LOL.

Sale prices are in USD and are before stacking coupons, and these are lowest desktop prices I've managed to find (the Aliexpress app tends to give a few cents to dollars off), so with coupons and app use, potentially the deal may be even sweeter. Also, some of these prices are after following certain stores on Aliexpress, so they occasionally give a "fan exclusive discount".


BLON BL-03 - $25
CCA C12 - $28.50
CCA C16 - $68
DUNU DM-480 - $58
Hisenior B5+ - $76
KBEAR Diamond - $71
KBEAR KB04 - $26
KZ ZSX - $34
LZ A6 Mini - $51.75
NiceHCK DB3 - $15
NiceHCK N7 Pro - $83
Shozy Form 1.1 - $75
Tin T2 - $32
Tin T4 - $89
TFZ No. 3 - $96 ----> other than the regular shell colour, they came out with new psychedelic crystal shells and a wood grain type shell colour. There's also a black gold colour that has been released a few months back.
TFZ Tequila 1 - $66
TRI I3 - $147 (sorry this shouldn't be in a sub $100 thread, but I was very happy with this purchase during the last AE sale)
TRN BA5 - $37
TRN V90 - $28


CONGRATS IN ADVANCE ABOUT YOUR PURCHASE, AND SORRY ABOUT YOUR WALLET!!!

To preface, I have not tried these and have no idea if they're any good. I think they originally retailed for $149.99 and they're now $19.99, so not much to lose.

Those look a lot like their Edge ANC headphones that they ran on Indiegogo. I picked up a pair and used them... once. I don’t recall the details, but they really weren’t very good for either sound or ANC...

Wow, I have not heard the name Nakamichi in some thirty odd years. It used to be a very solid company making tape decks, pre-amps and power amps.
I also think the only company that got two drivers to properly work in a headphone is 1More.

Cheers.
