    Right now Amazon has the ATH-IM02 for $150. When I checked just a couple weeks ago they were $212. They were reviewed favorably on Innerfidelity and are a dual driver BA. I bought one myself and there's 4 more left.

    FYI to potential buyers, they are prone to hiss.

    Shouldn't be an issue with the iPhone I use. I have never heard a hiss from those even with super sensitive headphones.

    It hissed with my Sansa Clip+ which was surprising. They're a musical iem and super comfortable. Great for on the go use, though, imo, not best for critical listening.

    Thanks! I wanted one good example of a BA IEM in my stable, which is why I am getting them. For critical listening I would rather use fullsize headphones.

    I live across the street from AC Gears. I feel like at that price I should just grab a pair even though I so do not need another mid-fi headphone. I definitely do not agree with Tyll that these surpass the HD600 but do think they are very good for what they are and a decent bargain at $250. At $150 a complete steal.

    The HD6XX's have unlocked the $199 tier so they are back down to the original price.

    Another change is that shipping is no longer free for international orders. Not complaining, just pointing it out for hose interested.

    This is only valid till the end of the day (another 8 hours as per the email i received) but Sonarworks has a $100/€100 discount on its speaker calibration packages. Use the code "JUN17-AA2PB" and you should see it applied in your cart!

    I don't know that this is consistent with B&H's orthodox Jewish beliefs!

    I think you're thinking of the other B&H... Not Bottlehead.

    Oh, haha! I totally am. I just ordered an iPad from BH and it shipped today so it's on my mind.

    I know this was a joke... but is B&H being Jewish actually a recognizable thing?

    Well they are often closed for business even online for all Jewish holidays. You cannot purchase anything during those times.

    The owners of B&H are from an ultra-orthodox Jewish community
    See the Wikipedia link for more information.
    They don't do business on the Sabbath.
