Lowest price ever. Those headphones are £100+ on eBay and around £150 elsewhere online.

No.
It's a very good deal.
These are brilliant, i got a pair last time they were this price and the sound quality is excellent.
Thanks, ordered!
I really don't need these, I have a pair of HD 598 that sound as good as ever... They're a bit tatty after five years, though. That's my excuse for buying these anyway. Cheers, OP.
I have 18 year old 565 Ovations.
Fantastic price for some great headphones. Sound quality for the price is excellent. Heat

Good item for the price.
So tempted but the sound leakage has put me off. (which of course they're designed to do) Great price for them.

i have the original hd598 and they are stunning
Also available on prime now. I had a £5 off primenow voucher as I'd selected no-rush delivery previously.
What's the benefit of the open-back so sound leakage?

And would these be useful for gaming at all?

Earpads tatty change them, when there on your head can't see them.

Open back headphones usually provide a wider soundstage compared to closed back headphones. Sound leakage is a trade off however.

I hope you can get the treatment you need for such a terrible affliction.

Honestly, so long as you're not in a situation where you're listening around others a lot and you're not a basshead - I'd always recommend openback. It's actually a really significant difference. Not only do they provide a MUCH broader soundstage, I find them more comfortable to listen to because it doesn't have the pressure build up of a closed headphone in your ear at moderate-to-high volumes.

Also, this is an incredible deal. I'd have gone for this if the Fidelio X2's weren't also on on sale for a crazy good price. For £80, you're not going to find anything better.

Tempted. I need a new set of headphones but have just begun the search. From comments above though, these seem like a great price/quality offer. Thanks for the heads up OP.

Yeah it was better than your post.
If you use Amazon Fresh and add 0.01p of more items rounding it up to £80 you can use the code AVOCADO20 and get them for £60.

Well if you plan to use the headset to not disturb others around you these are not the best. You should be able to use the mic to chat online, but I'm not sure of the mic quality.

As for the audio they are amazing, they used to be the go to headphones for those who wanted the best gaming experience. I've had mine for a couple of years now, and before that I used the 595's which were just as good.

Shame I didn't see the offer before, I would have snapped up the deal, I do own a set of 598's , but I was looking at these for the mic cable.

Buy an in-line mic cable?

I know I could,( I think they cost around £25 plus P+P for official ones), but for another £50 I'd have gotten myself another set of these headphones, so would have been worth it. Personally I'd prefer a boom mic attachment (Actually surprised no third party hasn't made one for the 598's) they make more sense for gaming.

I do have a third party cable I got from fleebay, though the mic is a bit quiet.
Price now 137.40.
