As a US customer these are on Amazon for $316(Prime), so I have to ask myself, is saving $66 worth the 6 month wait?...

Tax on Amazon for most people though. For me that brings it up to like $340. Saving 90 bucks seems worth it.

You're right. With tax, mine came out to $330. I'll just wait the 6 months and enjoy my AKG K7XXs a bit longer. I'll probably forget i ordered these and give future me a nice surprise Christmas present.

Amazon has presence in my state. Taxes are collected. The $316 will end up more than $316. Doesn't matter anyways, I have quite a few headsets that I can wait for the long ship date. Fostex THX-00 Purple Hearts, Fostex T50RP, Philips SHP9500, HE-350, Status CB1, Superlux HD-681 EVO, Superlux HD-668B, AKG K553 Pro. RIP Shure SRH-840 and Grado SR80 that got me started in this hobby.
As you can see, some of us can wait for that long manufacturing time because we just didn't get started in the audiophile hobby. If you're just getting started in the audiophile hobby then yeah go right ahead and buy it from Amazon or elsewhere because you have zero headsets in your possession.

They sound amazing! and the ear cups are very soft and comfy, but the headband is killing it for me. I think i have a bit of a smaller head so with the elastic a bit weak and not enough clamp, it keeps sagging and drooping on my head. I keep having to adjust them, only for it to sag down again minutes later. Its a real bummer cause they really do sound amazing when in the right spot. I'll probably donate them to a friend once these HD6XXs come in.

Forgot about B&H. Still, the 6XX color scheme is much better imo.
