Why send this out in a newsletter advertising a sale? What use is it to us if it's sold out beforehand? https://i.imgur.com/85N2hAY.png Mar 8, 2018

        And go figure there are still two in stock but at the full price because they're 'sold out'.

      $150 for an HD58X would almost be appealing just to 'recolor' my 6XX, but that gloss is so tacky.

        It'd be nice to see AMD do something nice again. Hopefully forces Intel to innovate faster again.

      Looks like Fang has to do his own damage control in the head-fi thread now, Jude's price must be as high as the Edition 6's

        @HitmanFluffy appears to be ready to ratchet up the DEFCON level... It's going to be hard to keep a straight face.

        I think the thread, and indeed the whole affair, is too far gone for it to be worth trying to be constructive at this point. HFM shat the bed with the product itself, and then smeared it around with Da Bian's tact and charm.

        Better yet, a 00000 sticker. Would probably blow his mind.

        Yeah I was visiting my dad and he had picked them up. Was shocked something sounding that way could even be advertised as a studio monitor..

        I had a combo here with @noaudiophile, who reviewed them in his site. He pretty much said they were shit. And I belive him and you (I dont have them r heard them so I would go with you guyses impressions n stuff). MR5s I have. Those r not too bad IMO. Its a shame bout CR4s.

        I had hoped they would be a little better, I did like the HR824. Didn't get the opportunity to hear the MR5 but they would have been well out of his budget anyway, I couldn't convince him to double his CR4 budget to allow for the LSR305 either..

        Not the same without Phife the funky five footer, but better than expected. Good to hear Busta and some other origionals on there. Sampleing Benny and the Jets was also a highlight for me

      Come to think of it what ever happened to that black HDVD 800 Sennheiser were making to go with the HD 800 S?

      May ease out of the headphone game and throw up an IC for the HD800S and cable modded DT880.. Too bad there aren't many marketplaces in NZ.

        I recommend an "original mackenzie super roll" to my patients and it's an easy amazon buy

        maybe something to check out in the meantime as it's not too expensive, hope it helps

        edit: Oh whoops, you're in NZ, well maybe it's available more quickly there than the aeron

        Looks like they do sell them here, though I think I'd prefer to buy the one made for the chair just so I can sell them together come time I decide to get an Embody. I made the terrible mistake of sitting in that chair and now it eats away at me..
