fullcompass.com has them along with many other beyer models. My experience has been to call to get a better price than what is listed online. Last time I did this out of curiosity I had to order on the spot, so be forewarned.

It will be really highly advisable to audition them before the final acquisition. Please do not ask why

That will only work with a fully burnt-in DT150.
Out of the box, and therefore maybe also in a shop, they don't sound that good.
After a 48 hour of break-in, they sound fantastic.

I don't believe I've ever heard a phone go from terrible to fantastic with burn-in (or recabling, mods, etc.). Burn-in doesn't change things remotely that much.

Maybe I'm exaggerating.
But before I got the DT150, I thought the same. Actually I didn't believe in burn- in at all.
But these headphones changed that....
For me, hearing is believing.
Bass became much tighter, mids cleared up etc.

192.00? Aren't these 150.00? Another 200 headphone.. Better isolation then my 48's.. And look more comfy to boot.. ugly.. But it's whats on the inside that counts..1/4 connectors?


Unfortunately, they are not so comfy. The thick earpads are rather stiff.
