Can’t decide whether to get these HD6xx or some like new (open box) HD650 for $230. If I were to go with these, when would they ship?

They're set to ship September 24th, per the bottom of the overview page.

Thank you! Just saw it myself. Now question is if I’d be willing to play their waiting game.

No problem! It's a tough call if you want headphones sooner. I like the look of these 6xx better and have some HD 598s to use in the meantime. Because of that I don't mind waiting. Past looks and waiting time it's the same sound (from everything I have read) so that shouldn't play a role.

I too like the look of these as well! But sadly I dont have spair Hi-Fi headphobes given that I had to return my AKG 7xx since they were defected. I guess the time factor then just decided it for me!

Right on. Either way you'll be getting a great pair of headphones! Enjoy :)

An open box HD650 for $230 it's a good deal, for just $30 extra you'll get the original 650 (which supposedly has better build quality) and skip the waiting time. If I were you I'd buy the HD650.

The built quality is exactly the same. Don’t believe those fake rumours.

"Like New" description might apply to the looks, but how do you know they've never been over-driven (unless like new open box means they were just a return by someone who didn't like them). You'd also be giving up having a warranty. I own all the models in the line and the build quality is all the same. Some of the models have a nicer finish, but that's the only difference (aside from the different grilles on the HD660s). If you have a balanced amp you can apply the $30 towards a balanced cable.

Yeah, sadly that is kind of a risk I’m going to take. But from what I know, the company I am getting them from is called Blinq and they have several HD650s in stock on their ebay account. From reading on their company page, they partner up with retailers to resale their returned or overstock items. Even then, the company accepts 30 day returns if I’m unpleased. Hopefully it isn’t dud, if not I’ll just be ordering from massdrop and wait like everyone else!

Sounds good. I purchased my HD800S' as factory refurbished from an authorized Sennheiser dealer and saved over $400. I was nervous, and I gave them a workout to be sure everything was okay. In the end it all turned out great and I'm very happy with the headphones. Enjoy your HD650's; I really like mine!
