Very nice find @lupo_yellow , thanks for posting
Couldn't resist damn you! Thanks OP
I have a pair of these and think they are a bit of a bargain at this price point despite being refurbs. Only downside is that I found them to be too tight to be really comfortable for an extended listening session :-(

How is the bass, i am not keen on bass heavy 'phones.
Same here. I don't find them bass heavy.

Btw, I think I paid around £66 for a new pair as a black Friday deal on Amazon a year or two back. They are usually over a hundred new.
One left.
still got them in red
God damn, sold out.
Can't vote it hot because it's expired. But just bagged a red pair. Thanks!
Got mine today, sound quality is good but they are very tight. like having your head in a vice

Oh dear. I've heard they're tight. I don't have a huge amount between my ears so I'm hoping I'll be alright! At least there's the 30 day return policy.
I've just got them today too, they are honestly way too tight. They sound good, but the comfort factor is terrible. Will be returning unfortunately

Shame. I read in a couple of the reviews that the headband is made from some kind of adaptive material which takes a minute or two to loosen up. How long did you try them on for?
I've had them on and off all day, I think the adaptive material bit is marketing BS, they start off tight and seem to get progressively worse but I'll persevere with them for a few days and see how they go

It's definitely a bit more than marketing BS. If you pull them open, hold them for a bit then release, they don't immediately return straight back to where they were. Also, I do feel them gradually relax once they're on. They're still tight I'll admit but not too tight for me. I'm a drummer so tight (comfortable tight) is good. There's definitely something going on with that band, but it might not be right for everyone.
I don't want to send them back as they're a bargain so I'll persevere with them. I don't know why B&O have made them so tight though, I have selection of headphones and have tried many other pairs and none of them are anything like as tight as these. When I first got them out of the box I didn't think I'd be able to get them on.

Another thing I've noticed is because there is so much tension in the head band it tends to twist so one ear-cup tilts slightly forward and the other slightly back, I've checked some of the reviews on Amazon and some ppl have mentioned that the headband warps after a few months which I assume is this

Hmm that's a bit of a worry...
