  • Summary: I got mine for $570 shipped from PriceJapan. Arrived in two days. Amazing service from those guys. They sounded terrific right out of the box. The treble smoothed out just a little after burn-in, but if they hadn't changed one bit I'd have been fine.
  • Pros: Beautiful sound and looks
  • Cons: A bit forward in the mids and lower treble

  • Summary: I bought a pair of these recently, I'm one of many who took advantage of the $399 deal on these.  I think for the price I paid they are a pretty good deal, but they do have some issues.  They are certainly an attractive pair of headphones.
  • Pros: Sound good with pretty much everything, Look really, really nice, Great value at current price
  • Cons: Headband, non-detachable cable
