Absolutely crazy cheap price for these...be quick though 50% gone already.

with delivery mine worked out at £66 but I guess it depends on whether you pay in euro or let amazon do the conversion. Good find.

I've edited it there to reflect the UK price. Still a stupidly cheap price though

that is insanely cheap for these headphones!

Amazing deal! If i were not looking for closed back i would deffinitely be going for these!

Just over the £66 letting amazon convert to gbp. I hope i ordered it properly as i can't understand French so just clicked buttons at random. It is a lightning deal so they will probably sell out. At least they would on the UK site. The French must be used to better deals as anything on the UK site along those lines goes in minutes.

wow they look like noctua headphones!

I have the HD 650, but don't want to have to deal with having top end amps, so decided to go for the deal, had not intention of buying headphones today

Phew, nearly selected my holiday home address in Anchorage, Alaska as my delivery address... X)

all gone

Thanks OP never would have found that deal without you posting it on here, not sure my bank balance thanks you

considered these before at 129.99, so just had to purchase!

Got one, amazing price, if this was on the UK store, be gone in seconds.

Thanks, picked up a pair as well- was going to go with yesterdays Momentum deal, but glad I decided against it. Picked the pay in euro option, will see what sort of rate the Nationwide picks.

Someone posted on this review that these were $99 on Black Friday!

Thought about doing that to as also with nationwide and you do get a good rate with them, but in the end I went with simplicity of having amazon convert the price

I used my Post Office card which like your Nationwide card shouldn't charge for conversion. We can compare amounts when processed!

Bought! Thanks!

That is a great price for US people, shame you would have tax etc on top, so to ship to UK would work out quite a bit more that the £66 that is deal works out at.

Amazon will offer you to pay in Pounds, mine came to £66.47

I also used the Amazon conversion. However, I paid with natwest debit card would they add extra charges to that?

No you've paid in Sterling and allowed Amazon to chose the exchange rate.

Whenever I'm abroad I use my Post Office Credit Card and pay in local currency, so PO chose the rate, which *should* be better as they don't take 2.75% conversion fee like most CC providers. The same should apply for this purchase.

HOT HOT HOT!!

Same here, an absolute bargain.

Those look genuinely gorgeous. I'm a sucker for anything in cream & brown. They match my Y-fronts.

I think this means ... **** off you ain't French!

They're certainly not 'top of the range' as that honour goes to the HD 800s which rrp at £1000 ! there are four models between these and the top of the range.

The reviews aren't good either with what HiFi describing them as "boring"

Our Verdict


Sennheiser overplays its hand here, and ‘sophistication’ lurches into ‘tedium’

Is ‘boring’ too strong a word? Not in this instance

I'm sure the price is good, but I'm not sure that the product itself is.

Well if you could buy them still, it would go to the Orpheus at £6000 (though it does include amp and they are electrostatic), which I did have the pleasure of hearing at a meet up, pretty amazing but realised I never wanted to spend that much for the % increase of the HD 650 plus good amp (they were a lot better, but not enough better for the money)

Headphones seem to go up and up, when I stated out, minus some Stax and the Orpheus the HD 600 were top of the range at £200

Comparing to amazon.fr, sales on the UK one are a bit... poop. Toothbrush and 30% off some perfume, deal of the year.
