The Phillips X2HR for $117 is as low as it gets for a new set. I did some price research on sd forums and they were the same price last prime day. I bought a set of refurbs from woot but had to return them because I felt something (the bass?) was too fatiguing. I really wanted to like them since I like my SHP9500 cans.
I bought that a couple of years ago on another amazon deal, I returned them because of mismatched drivers, one side clearly louder than the other etc. Good deal if you get a good pair I think. Maybe QC has tightened up recently?

Anyone know if this is a legit ATH-R70x from Walmart website for $238?

The description says color is white?

I ordered one, but not sure if I need to look elsewhere before I waste my time?

* Edit: Thanks to the link dazKewl provided below it looks like monoprice had these on sale for $750 early June so what I posted is not a good deal.*

I don't know the first thing about these headphones. I just saw them while surfing woot.

It's not from Walmart--it's from some 3d-party seller in Florida listed by Walmart. That's a suspiciously low price, so you should see if Walmart protects you against frauds from its 3d-party sellers. I tried clicking a little through the Walmart site but they don't make any warranties/policies easy to find.

Yeah I knew it was from a third party. I guess i'll find out in a few days. I'll let you guys know if it's a great deal or a great scam. 😅

As far as I know the R70x was never made in white. But this wouldn't be the first time a description has been wrong
How does walmart work on third party sellers anyways? Is it like Amazon "fullfilled" or is the buyer on their own?

I know. The color was what prompted me to question the validity. I would hope third party disputes work similarly. Well, if it pans out, you guys know there's r70x available for a great price. If not, avoid the link. More to follow.

Looks like you have to dispute the 3d-party seller first, then maybe Walmart will step in. Hopefully you'll just get some great headphones.

Thanks to iburdeinick. I jumped on the AKG deal. I was undecided during the past sales but I'd always wanted to try them out.
