Lightening deals have been daily since last year Black Friday

Ty op! Didn't need but ......

I don't need another pair of headphones. I won't buy these. Definitely not.

Bought.

Damn you. [b][b]

I've placed an order but don't know if I should keep it or cancel it!

Be rude not to at this price. Thanks OP, heat added.

sensational deal cheers OP!!

ordered, not sure why i need three pairs of headphones though

Scorching price! Ordered! Thanks OP

These are not as good as certain reviews (or the RRP) would have you believe. Around the £50 mark seems a fair price I guess but they aren't portable (they're huge!), the cable is not detachable and a distinct lack of bass meant that I didn't enjoy these headphones as much as the AKG K451 which always hover around this price. A massive saving on the RRP which will justify the heat but these just aren't that great in my opinion. Haven't voted either way.

Apparently they need to "bed in" with up to 200 hours of use to achieve good bass

These will go great with my unopened k452's

Same here!

They won What Hi-Fi's best home headphones under £150 this year, so an absolute steal at this price. Been enjoying my K452s and had these on my wishlist. Was delighted to see them in the lightning deals this evening!

Thanks for the post. Great price. Ordered!

Steal at this price,been looking for some cans to replace my K351's,great spot OP

Got em'! Thanks OP

Heat!

Same here!



Used mine for maybe 10 mins,so clearly i need to order these as well !

Great spot & ordered after missing out on the Sennheiser France deal the other week.

Just listening to my AKG Y50s from Amazon for £50, pretty impressed for the price. A bit more portable than these.

Why is this expired? Just been on to Amazon and they're still available.

Indeed, black is expired but white still available

Are these any good for gaming?

Waitlist still available in Black/Sliver.

how do this lighting deal work
i want one but dont know how it works

I hate this website sometimes. I will send back the (thankfully unopened) budget pair of in ears I bought the weekend in a rush as I needed some with a mic and get these instead, the extra £35 is money well spent. I'll be off to poundland for everyone else's Christmas presents though. Cheers OP, heated!

Me three!

Voted hot

how do these compare to k452s? planning to swap mine with these

I'm gonna sell these on Gumtree :-)

Hopefully I'll get £70 for them seeing as refurbished ones are going for around £90.

Good question, I'd like to know as well...got my K452s from Black Friday and am yet to open them because they looked kinda small and am not keen on the white colour I managed to get.

Only managed to get white ones again....ah well....

Thanks op, was going to get the k452 offer from the Black Friday event but they weren't the headphones I really wanted was going to order simply because they were cheap.
Glad I got these instead. Cheers.

The K452s are on ear open back, these one's are over the ear closed back

All claimed now.

Don't know if I should cancel my order or make a little profit on Gumtree

I hate it when people brag about reselling something they got cheap for a higher price, someone missed out on this deal because you're greedy. Should be ashamed tbh

If there is one thing I do not need it's another set of headphones. Doh!
