View Full Discussion Greed is the reason for the price increase. Terrible business practice. For those who want a hd650, look it up on hifishark.com for a good price, or try to find one at at better price on headfi.com or ebay.
I joined the first drop and will not on this one because they jack up the price.
Not seeing the "greed" here. If Massdrop started charging the same price or more than brand new HD650s are currently retailing for and tried to pass it off as some sort of deal, then I could understand. $250 for what are essentially serialized special edition HD650s still sounds like a good deal to me. Good luck finding brand new HD650s for $250 anywhere else. Sure you could probably find some used HD650s with some wear & tear for sale around $250 or a BIT less, but why bother when you can buy something brand new that hasn't been dinged/scratched up or sitting on someone else's sweaty/oily hair & ears?
Bet you can find the real deal HD650 For $50 more and not in the funky blue for the private label model their selling here with price hike. There is no reason to raise the price for the XXX other than greed. This is such an old model and this is found money for Senn after 20 some years on the market!!
New HD650s are selling for $300 to $325 pretty regularly if you look around.
