I've seen the 250 ohm model under $120 on Amazon, brand new. For the 80 ohm model, this is a great price. I wish it came with a case like the drops for the Beyerdynamic Premiums but I don't see any info indicating that, unfortunately.

The Pro 250's tend to be the cheapest across the 770,880,990 line. Although the chrome 880 seems to be pretty cheap most times.

Some recommendations from a DT990 Premium owner...... First, be absolutely certain that you are ok with the strong treble. You won’t notice on most well recorded, audiophile material but any modern, compressed, recordings will make your ears bleed. These are super strong in the sibilant region. If you are sensitive to treble, move along. If you are prepared to deal with the treble or EQ out the 9k spike, these are actually very good headphones otherwise. They are very open, detailed and quite fast. The soundstage tends toward the three blob, left, center, right variety versus a cohesive front soundstage but, for the price, it is hard to complain about the other attributes. As any entry point to audiophile performance, these are a reasonable choice. The other consideration is pro versus premium options. The premium has a much lighter clamp force and is very comfortable for long sessions where the pro might be a little uncomfortable. If you dip your toes in to the audiophile headphone world here, you will eventually buy the HD6XX. It might be one month, two months or six months but eventually you will buy them. The other option is to skip these and go straight to the 6XX.

You are clearly misunderstanding something. Audiophile is certainly NOT modern compressed recordings, it's recordings with real instruments and musicians. Such as classic, jazz and some rock recordings.

Wasn't this $140 last time? Also, how does this compare to the Fidelio X2HR? I just got the X2HR, but this was the headphone that I was thinking about getting before I decided on the X2HR. The detachable cable was the deciding factor. I was expecting the soundstage to be wider on the X2HR though.

The MSRP is listed and is accurate... Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price... Amazon doesn't make them. These cans are a couple of decades old at this point. I do like your name however, assuming that is a Tolkien reference.

I have these, they’re pretty great for their price point. But they are best for home use with a decent amplifier, especially the higher impedance versions (mine are the 250 ohm). Not so much with a phone, or for use in public. Also, as with a lot of Massdrop stuff lately, this isn’t actually all that amazing a deal. I think I got mine for about $12 more with free shipping just a few months back from an Amazon seller.
