I have a pair of £100 headphones, I seriously doubt these are 20 times the quality. This isn't why I come to this site, at all. It's supposed to be a better deal here, not just a showroom for things I can't justify spending lots of money on.

You’re right, it’s not 20x better, it might even just be 2x better. But some people will pay that sum for audio. Also just cause it’s expensive doesn’t make it a bad deal, in this case you get $300 worth of drop points so if you’re gonna buy it anyway drop is still a better option.

There are people who pay many times more for cars that are 10% faster...

Or you could buy them from Amazon and save $300. Then you're not locked in to buying something from this site, and you can use that 300 anywhere you like, or not at all. The choice will be yours.

That's true but a car can be a status symbol. They intrinsically have value and because so many people drive cars people recognise their value, audiophile headphones are a niche market so their value isn't as widely recognised. Also more to the point cars and audio can't be compared, cars can be objectively better than other cars whereas audio is subjective. What sounds good to you might not sound good to me so if there's a $1k set of headphones that pump out finely crafted bass, and if I'm more of a treble guy then I don't care at all and they're not worth $1k to me. 400kph is 400kph.
Amazon has them for $2000, if someone were looking to purchase these (I'm not at anywhere near MSRP) the Drop offering is something over the other retailers... you also skip sales tax depending on where you live. If I were interested it would be a $200 savings and $300 in 'store credit' vs buying on Amazon. It seems you just don't get the appeal of top of the line headphones, that's cool... doesn't mean you need to belittle a niche market that you don't belong too.

You took it the wrong way, I'm not belittling a high end market I'm criticising the site for taking a different route from its original market. The way it used to be is you came on here and saw a product, if enough people put their hat in to buy it, it would lower the price for it as buying in bulk is cheaper and it cut out the middleman (distribution and shops). These days there is none of that, just relisting high end products for little to no savings. I also don't agree with dummy expensive audio gear as I think you're being ripped off but if you wanna spend that its on you, I'm not your parent go wild.
For someone who's never bought any of the headphone offerings under the "previous style" of group buys I'm curious why you are so concerned about the deviation here? What isn't surprising is that you've pretty much only bought mech stuff on this site, your mentality has been shared by several of that community who chose to post in Audiophile. You don't see me telling people in that community I find it ridiculous to spend $40 bucks on a cast dragon key... know why? It isn't my concern what those people do with their money. I'm going to Mark Twain right out of this conversation.

you're comparing the prices of two different products now, if you're fine with secondhand you could probably get it even cheaper through other sites, thats not an even comparison. I can't say i got a them $1900 off if i bought shattered hd 820s that don't work, their different products at that point.

This isnt the same account I started with, lost the password for my old one a long time ago. Your confusion is understandable. For clarity, I have a pair of DT770s and some K702s so nothing super high end but also decidedly not mainstream. Peace and love.

Let me go on the record... player for the first time
Hi, I'm looking at getting into the record player game. Thank you for your time in advance, I know this is a long read. Anyways... I have some Massdrop x AKG M220 Blues and a Little Dot Mk 3 220v tube amp from the Mega Mystery Box from way back when, and I've really only used the AKGs a few times, but enough that I can tell they're WAY beyond the quality of music I can push to them. I need some recommendations on some speakers, a record player, and maybe an amp if what I'm working with is totally inappropriate. I'm really new to the audiophile game, so if there's another piece of kit I'd need to get the most out of a setup, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm giving rough budgets, but if you know of something that's a little outside the range but is a much larger leap in performance and features than the leap in budget, I'm game. If anyone knows of a good place to get new and old records for good prices, I'd like to know that too! The intent is to have a nice place to sit...

Amazon Listing Suppression? How Do I Fix It?
What is a Suppressed Amazon listing? So what is an Amazon suppressed listing? When a listing doesn’t live up to Amazon’s rigorous standards, they will suppress it. These listings won’t be visible to your customers – hence the name, and listing suppression. Since the dawn of the COVID era, suppressed Amazon listings are one of the most common problems that a seller can face. Simply put – a suppressed listing is when Amazon hides your product from the search and browse areas because it doesn’t meet their listing standards. Here is a great example where the buy-box is suppressed. Look familiar? Amazon does this to improve the shopping experience for their users by effectively deactivating low-quality product listings through suppression. They want to maximize their customer’s ability to find, evaluate and quickly purchase products, and every decision behind suppressing a listing comes from a research-first approach to Amazon’s sales management. When inside Seller Central...
