Sennheiser HD 820 arrives at Massdrop!

Massdrop fans, we have Sennheiser-y news for you! The Sennheiser closed-back flagship, the HD 820 is now available for purchase at the Massdrop website. This is the standard version, it is not a “Massdrop x Sennheiser” co-production.

The price right now is $2000, which is also the price at reputable online dealers such as B&H Photo. The prices at Amazon’s start at $1850 BUT look who’s offering them at $1850. Do you know these retailers? Are they authorized Sennheiser dealers? (SPOILER ALERT: they are not!)

PS: to clarify something in case it’s confusing for those not living and breathing on Amazon. If a product is shipped by Amazon (“fulfilled by Amazon”) but sold by a 3rd-party/marketplace seller, the warranty status of the product is determined by the authorized dealer status of the 3rd-party/marketplace seller. Just because it is shipped by Amazon, there’s no automatic transubstantiation of the warranty status!

EU: Sennheiser HD 560S drops to 161 euro

While the Sennheiser HD 560 S open over-ears remains hard to find in the USA, in Europe, we have the first sizable discount, as of the time of writing it is down to 161 euro at Amazon Germany sold and shipped by Amazon Germany actual…

NOTE however that prices at Amazon Germany tend to fluctuate and oscillate between price-points, so the price you see over there may vary depending on which time of the day you check over there…

… BUT as of the time of writing the shipping estimate is “Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months.”… These Amazon estimates are rather nebulous, sometimes they get to you faster, sometimes not. In general, Amazon tries not to over-promise a fast delivery to prevent disappointments and such…

As to whether one should get the HD560S or HD6XX or HD600 or Jubilee or something else from another manufacturer, well, the internet and the audiophoolia forums are full of opinions 🙂

And as they say about opinions… they are like onions, they may make you cry 😉

EU: Sennheiser HD 560S drops to 192 euro

Attention European shoppers! As of the time of writing the price of the new condition open-back over-ear Sennheiser HD 560S is down to 192 euro at Amazon Germany by Amazon Germany actual. This price oscillates between
192 and 199 euro depending on when you look at it.

Staying at the EU, and speaking of Sennheiser, you can get the new condition closed-back over-ear Sennheiser HD 300 lightweight for 39 euro at Amazon Germany… This should not be confused with the Sennheiser HD 300 PRO studio headphones!

Both of these are “organic sales”, not part of any lightning deals or deals of the day, so the prices can (or cannot) change at any time and for any reason (which of course the Amazon AI price bots do not explain to us mere mortals)…

Friday: Sennheiser HD 2.30G or 2.30i On-Ears for $25

It is Sennheiser’s turn in the Newegg daily deals good until Friday 1/29/21 at 11:59pm pacific time, it is the new condition closed-back on-ear HD 2.30G (G = Galaxy = Android) or the HD 2.30i (i = iPhone, iPod, iPad) going for $25 with free US shipping, sold and shipped by NewEgg actual. Budget time!

Also part of the Friday dailies is the Sadeas Locus Plus 7.1 gaming headset for $40, and the recurring refurbished Jabra Elite Active 65t truly-wireless for $40 as well…

To make sure I’m not hallucinating or sleep-blogging, here’s a screenshot of their page as of the time of writing:

Plenty has been written and said about it already on the interwebs, and the nature of the Sennheiser HD line-up makes for a never-ending combination of comparisons 🙂

EU: Sennheiser HD560S In-Stock for 195 euro

European e-shoppers, your time has come if you want to jump on the Sennheiser HD 560 S open-back over-ear wired bandwagon! As of the time of writing, the headphone is marked in-stock and ready to ship for 195 euro at Amazon Germany

In Ameereeka, the HD560S has “disappeared” from the Amazon website. It may sound like a strange thing, but on rare occasion historically this type of thing happens at Amazon with high-demand but hard-to-find items.

No need to panic, the headphone is NOT disappearing from the US market. New York’s B&H Photo has it in “Coming Soon” status and accepting pre-orders of it for $200…

Of course by the time it gets here, the hype train may decide to move on to a different train station, mayhaps the Koss KPH-30i 😉

DARKVOICE 336SE OTL headphone amp for $200 [MD]

Speaking of Massdrop, they have a Gaming Value Meal of the non-edible kind. If you start with the Drop ENTR mechanical keyboard page and from there you add the Sennheiser PC-37X gaming headset, and proceed to the shopping cart their total price will drop from $180 ($90 each) to $150. A combined purchase discount. No coupon is needed, this happens automatically during this limited time promotion…

Another one of their offers if you are interested in Mr Dan Clark Audio (DCA) ear-speakers (ha!). They are offering the new condition Drop + DCA AEON open X headphones of the V-Planar magnetic kind for $450 with free US shipping and free US returns.
