My order of DT 1350's from AC Gears was cancelled. They said they changed distributors and offered me a 20% off code. Pretty disappointing, as that was my only bf/cm purchase. Anybody else get the same treatment? Was curious if any of those deals went through.

Me too, order canceled. That's also my only bf/cm purchase.
The offer of 20%off code is quite meaningless because AC Gears's list price is much higher than others now, except the price of DT1350 then on bf. The list price of DT1350 boosted from $179 to $249 now. LINK No point to buy from them even if it is in stock in the future.

Not a deal but might be helpful to those still new to Amazon deal.

I've had success up to 30 days after a purchase and for multiple price drops on the same item. I did this with my Q701's. I bought them before they dropped from $230 to $224 and then to $220. I felt a bit petty asking for a refund of $6 and then another $4 on a $220 purchase, but hey money saved is money toward a new pair of headphones. I've also done this on numerous other purchases. It's not something Amazon advertises, but I've found they do everything they can to ensure customer satisfaction.

they do this because they have great customer service, but also because of the way their return policy works. You can often return items within the first 30 days w/ free return shipping and just rebuy it at the lower price, so they would lose money if they did not accommodate you within your return window.

I hear that if you ask for price adjustment and refund too often at amazon, they'll flag you.  Same with Best Buy.

Well, the portapro's are classics. Getting them for $25 is a pretty great deal. And if you find the bass to be a bit much or uncontrolled at times, there are plenty of modding options. Classics I say!

Took your wise advice and ordered! Just the fact that they have been making these so long makes me want to add them to the collection. Thanks man!

 
Cool! Just to confirm that you likely made a good decision...
