Oh my god, no, I had it all planned out, the preorders should have ended in 5 days and I'll get my loan in 3 days so it all would have worked out and now I only have 3 hours left?! NOOO. I really wanted these :(
don't worry these are around almost all the time...just with different ship date.
If you need a loan to purchase a pair of headphones perhaps you should reconsider your finances.
Thank you, thats a relief.
Yes, these will be back! If you need to save a few dollars, the HD 58X Jubilee (on Massdrop too) is almost as good and a bit easier to amp off of a phone or modest equipment than the HD 6XX.
Remember, you always have to pay back loans. I don't want to get too preachy, but I’m 32 and I have $2000 left in student loans to pay off; my wife, who deferred payments for a few years, has almost $100,000 in student loan debt. The good news is the HD 58X and HD 6XX are both really good values and also quite durable... people still use their original HD 580’s from the 1990’s and they still sound great! I bought a pair of $80, then $200 headphones in college (2010), it was a really nice luxury while I otherwise stuck to a pretty strict budget.
I know this is unrequested, but I'm telling you this with love, as if you were my son: DO NOT get into the practice of obtaining loans for toys. A house or a car is different, because not everyone has that amount of cash saved up, but for everything else, do not become a slave to financial institutions.
If you do have to get a small loan, pay it off quick. Do not let it get comfortable in your mind. You should not sleep well knowing that you owe money, no matter the amount. I made that mistake years ago, but now I'm debt-free. If I want something, I save up for it. God bless!
A car, house, or a student loan *cough cough* is an asset, something which will actually help you make money to repay the loan and more (*cough cough* college isn’t a guarantee *cough*). Unless you are studying music or video production, a headphone is a luxury.
For me, my college headphones were a luxury I chose to save up for from my paid internship and waiter wages, instead of eating out at restaurants or going to concerts. I managed my budget very carefully. My wife is going to be in debt until she is 45, or older, 25 years of debt for 4 years of school!
Good habits now while every dollar is precious pays off big time in the long run.
