Hell! If I'm going to get a posh av setup, might as well get a decent pair of cans to go with!!! Excellent reviews aplenty!

£641.50 inlcudes delivery but remember to go through Quidco for some £18 worth of cashback....

These are £120 cheaper than anywhere on the internet atm.....

Yeah, it's Christmas so let's just hope there's a Santa somewhere....

Hopefully I'll be buying a pair of these soon but our prices in the UK are so much more than in the US. Not a reason to vote this cold though as this is probably the cheapest you'll find them here in the UK. Less than £500 in the US and that's where I'll get a visiting relative to pick mine up from.

if only i was a premiership footballer

Will do although I'm looking for a retailer in London where I can compare them with some Stax 207 and some new Hifiman headphones but I'm not finding that easy!! And by the way, I'm not rich; I've just got my priorities all wrong

Lol, yup, it is all about priorities! I love a good pair of cans. Have the Sen HD650s and many other cheaper ones to play with. ATH-M50s I just got are very nice but these would be a great to sound out.

I must check if there are any can jams planned for the UK on Headfi.org. If not we should arrange a HUKD can jam somewhere.

No disrespect to the Grado fans but I find all Grados to only really suit a couple of styles of music (rock mainly) & they're definitely not a can is consider buying.

Great UK price though but as mentioned they retail for a LOT less over the states.

If anyone was looking to spend this much money on a set of headphones is strongly recommend looking into the Audeze range. Absolutely amazing cans. I have the LCD2 (rev1) & they're amazing.

For the person looking to demo in London. Try ringing Ampcity (in harrow). I'm not sure if they stock Grado buy last time I spoke to them they were halfway through setting up a demo room for all their gear. They're great guys over there too. I got them to sponsor the last Head-Fi UK meet & they really helped us out.

Thanks for that. Just had a look at the Ampcity website and it looks like I could spend a whole day in there!! Where did you get the Audeze from? Are they available in the UK now?

Skullcandy lowrider headphones anytime for me.....

They are available in the UK but the Guy that sells them hasn't got a proper website running. Look at this where to buy page on the audeze site & you'll see the UK distributor. His name is Simon & He's really great to deal with & doesn't charge an obscene amount either. Its also nice to know that in the event of something going wrong that you can deal with a UK based guy to get them fixed.

I really sugest giving them a demo. They are the best headphone I've ever heard & I've had the HD800, HE6, HE500, HE4, HD650 etc etc

£420 now
