no stock anywhere near me it seems sadly
that is a cracking deal, I paid £53.99 in January, if you can find them and buy them you won't regret it, they are open backed so anyone around you can clearly hear what you are listening to, but the sound is awesome. One thing to note it comes with a 6.3mm jack and converter to 3.5mm which together is huge, not great for using with a phone, but the cable is detachable and you can buy a lead from amazon, talking about the lead it is long, great for using with an amp, not so much with a phone.... Best headphones I have ever purchased.
Yeah...amazing price but oos everywhere.
one in victoria

Very different.

For one, these are pure headphones, not a 'headset'(w/mic).

Two, these are open-backed, meaning they sacrifice sound leakage for soundstage, giving them a lot more depth and breathability than a closed headphone like the Hyper X.

Three, these go for a very neutral sound signature. They are very clear, but 'boring' if you're used to headphones that accentuate certain frequencies, especially bass.

Four, these dont have any 'surround sound' processing and rely solely on traditional stereo output, though in reality, this isn't a big deal at all, as in reality, every headphone is 'stereo' and any extra processing is a questionable addition. That said, the extra adjustability in terms of settings provided by the Hyper X can be desirable for certain people.

Impossible to say if these are right for you. You'll need to do some research and figure this out yourself.

Can you recommend a good 3.5mm cable? Thanks.
These are just getting cheaper and cheaper. Shame closest store with stock is 123 miles away
Amazing price. I thought i picked these up cheap at Christmas for £69.99 from Argos. Don't forget to do the extremely easy foam mod to upgrade the sound on these.

Personally no, so far I have put up with the connector, however, there were a couple with good reviews on e bay.

Such a shame there aren't any in my local Argos stores. Would anyone be prepared to buy from Hastings, Aldershot or Torquay and post to me please? Message me if you could help...Thanks!
