Still, waiting 'till Monday can't hurt, atleast It'll give me more time to enjoy them.
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34717481]They just sent me an email: [img]http://puu.sh/h4IY[/img] It seems like they simply do not care or their shipping department is horribly broken. I'll still give it a week before I sell or keep them (probably the former), something might come up.[/QUOTE] awesome
God damn, just keep them! It's not often you get a windfall like this, and you aren't hurting anyone by keeping them.
[QUOTE=Porcupine162;34719006]God damn, just keep them! It's not often you get a windfall like this, and you aren't hurting anyone by keeping them.[/QUOTE] Think I agree with this now, if I had something like that and tried it for more than 30 minutes I imagine everything else would be underwhelming in comparison, they basically gave you free money if you sell them.
Now comes the hard part.
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34719298]Now comes the hard part of figuring out what to do with money, not having any debt is cool beans.[/QUOTE] GIVE IT TO ME! I WILL DOUBLE IT IN A WEEK. But seriously, get 2 gtx 590's? or some shit?
Saving probably.
Don't sell them, keep them, get an assembled O2 amp and a good DAC and never worry about sound again imo.
[QUOTE=Weltmeister;34720964]Don't sell them, keep them, get an assembled O2 amp and a good DAC and never worry about sound again imo.[/QUOTE] Cant argue with this, audiophilia can get very expensive and here's an option to end the expenses, a good dac and amp means you wont have to buy new audio equipment for a very, very long time. Besides you wouldn't get THAT much money for it if you sold it, keeping it is to me the wisest option. But you do what feels right.
If you think an O2 amp is enough to power these you've got no idea.
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34726520]If you think an O2 amp is enough to power these you've got no idea.[/QUOTE] they're 50 ohm headphones, you really just need a clean source, any PC output can power that.
[QUOTE=Shadaez;34726554]they're 50 ohm headphones, you really just need a clean source, any PC output can power that.[/QUOTE] To be fair I can listen to them at high enough volume without skipping from the FiiO E10 but I don't know how much I'm missing.
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34726520]If you think an O2 amp is enough to power these you've got no idea.[/QUOTE] uhhhh go do some research
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34726580]I don't know how much I'm missing.[/QUOTE] This feeling will ruin your bank account.

head fi is full of retards

Either way, I can't spend any more money on audio, it's just ridiculous, I'd rather sell'em for 1200, buy some HE-400s and save the rest.[/QUOTE] lol one moron named "Dubstep Girl" gives you SLIGHT doubt who says "her" opinion was derived from others' that's not research and you should definitely trust an audio engineer over some random on a forum anyone can be a part of [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] [url]http://nwavguy.blogspot.com/2011/07/o2-headphone-amp.html[/url]

If you'd just kept them, that's asking for trouble. Sure it's tempting and all, but you know it's wrong and you'd pay the price sooner or later. However, once you contact them and let them know, whatever they decide is on them now. If they say there's no mistake as far as they're concerned- game on! Those babies are yours, free and clear. No bad mojo attached at all.

I've read a bit of that thread on headfi, it's hilarious! immtbiker somehow making you out to be costing people their jobs. So the person who made the error isn't to blame, the person receiving the delivery is, got it!

So if he emails them and someone replies, that reply counts as much as if he contacted the CEO of the company himself. That's why people can sue a company if an employee on the job causes an injury for example.
Budget: 70€ eBay: No Country: Finland Isolation: Closed air Purpose: 100% Music Music Tastes: Hardstyle, Hardcore Techno, Gabber, Hard House and Melodic Death/Black Metal Previous Experiences: I've had [url=http://www.koss.com/en/products/headphones/earbuds/PLUG__Plug_In-Ear_Headphone]Koss Plug[/url] but the wires broke a few times and i gave up repairing them every few months but now i'm using Nokia WH-205 In ear buds in which i really like the bass but mid range is totally covered by the bass and high range sounds tend to crack a bit. and with computer i'm using usually my Philips SBC HP250 which are nice but lack abit bass in my opinion and i'd like a tighter seal around my ears. So i'd like closed full-size or IEM type headphones to use with my Samsung Galaxy S phone which has Wolfson WM8994 DAC so should be able to deliver high quality Audio if i'm not mistaken.

Since everything in sweden is so fucking expensive, is there anywhere that ships internationally that sells the ATH-M50 and/or fiio E7 or E17?
What's a good pair of headphones that meets some or all of these requirements? - Good bass response (eq'd IEMs (Radiopaq Pop) do it for me, HTF600 and AD700 fall short both with lots of eq) - Suited to Dance/Trance music - Earcups at least as large as those of the HTF600 - Not fake leather ear pads (or ones that don't become hot/sweaty like the HTF600) - Can survive being dropped and generally abused - Can be driven by a Xonar DX directly (100 ohm output afaik), or a preferably non-USB amp included in budget - Good isolation of nearby voices, don't care about leakage - 'Detail' similar to AD700 without the sibilance and ear rape from pops/clicks in voice chat - Don't care about soundstage, AD700 is supposed to have great soundstage and apart from a couple of songs (not at all in games) I really don't hear the difference - Purpose primarily music, also a bit of gaming - < £300 (preferably a fair bit less)

I'd also recommend the D2000s but they're built like soggy chips.
