This is a pretty good deal on some awesome headphones with terrific imaging, although a bit lacking on bass. However, the AD900x is selling on Amazon for $104, a headphone that retails at MSRP for $300. That's the best deal in this line, at about 65% off. If on a budget, get the AD500x at $60. That's a great deal if treble is more preferable than bass. At about $70, the competition is the Philips SHP9500, with removable cable that can BoomPro, bass, and great comfort. The "wings" of the AD series headband is a bit overlooked in design. If seeking Audio-Technica sound in open backs with great treble, then go all out with the highest available model, they deliver. My two cents.
