Too bad no ath-r70x. That is the headphone to get.

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.

Great price on both but I can't speak for the Fidelio because I haven't heard them. They look nicer than the SHP 9500 but at $55 you can't go wrong with 9500s.

Depends on your taste. The SHP9500 is very lightweight and comfortable and can be worn for a long time by most people. Both can BoomPro, the Audio-Technicas cannot. Listening to six string guitar and violin on the Audio-Technicas is pretty sweet. Josh has some insights. Although he gives too much kudos to Sennheiser for top end resolution due to having beaver ears. Sennheiser can't compare to Audio-Technica when it comes to top end resolution. That's one of Audio-Technica's strength and it has very little competition in that arena, you'd have to go for a pair of Focals or something to beat them in that. But I recommend watching both his videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69w06QDA9Dw

No AD700X? But they are so popular among FPS gamers?! I've been waiting for them the whole year but i guess thats a pass from me.

There is no reason to be discontinued. Their new AD5000x does not come close to the AD2000x in its own rights. The god like imaging in a narrow space studio like environment and you are musician but hearing yourself playing.

So the description box has the AD1000X at $250, A1000Z at $250, and A2000Z at $400. The pictures at the bottom of the page have them at $260, $300, and $450 respectively. The buy page has them at $250, $280, and $400. What are the prices actually supposed to be?

I'm sure the prices at checkout are the correct ones. I mean, that's what you'll be charged for. This is because prices vary between drops (and they usually go cheaper over time). I'm sure they just forgot to update the front page.

I've seen Massdrop go every which way when pricing isn't consistent. I've seen them put the price at the lowest point (which is always nice), and I've also seen them move the price at checkout up (I think they honored the sales up to the change).

Just bought the R70x on Amazon for $299, gotta have detachable cables, which these don't, otherwise would snag a pair. Only Audio-Technica cans I've owned before were the M50x, which was sold after 6 months.
