View Full Discussion Yeah this price here isn't that great. In addition to your link, its worth noting that the Ultrasone DJ1 headphone is essentially the same headphone as the HFI-580 but just with a different look and coiled cable instead of straight cable. All reviews I've seen say they have the same sound. They can also be found on sale on Amazon for around the $120 range as well.
It's unfortunate that the price is so high here as it might put people off of Ultrasone headphones in general. I own a pair of the DJ1's and they took a little getting used to after listening to Sennheiser HD-555's so long but nowadays they're my goto headphone. Especially for anything electronic.
The Amazon price that was under $120 in Aug of 2012 will never be seen again. These headphones had a price increase in 2013 and Ultrasone cleaned up a lot of dealers that were selling below value. If you check around these days... the price here at MASSDROP is the lowest you will find.
