    Yes from ebay. I know some peopole had to wait a long time for theirs. I only waited 10 days. There is not much communication with him. It felt like I just gave my money to a ghost

    Well, after some of the solid reviews about it, and the price is so nice I would be crazy not to jump on it.

    I got the DT770 250ohms and I replace my Hd485s, a headphone I thought I could never replace since it had great bass and great comfort. The DT770s beat it in both categories. BUT they are closed, which I do not know how loud I am talking into the mic for those long night gaming sessions :(

    Yeah, lol. I noticed that. I went to talk to my brother and accidentally yelled. :p Personally though, I don't use the microphone in many games, only really for CS:S at lan parties or something. In that case, I just use a logitech headset w/ mic. I'll be using these nice Beyerdynamic's pretty much for music and late night gaming where I can't turn on the Z-5300's in repercussion of waking someone up.

    are you referring to the situation on head-fi where the guy bought some ath es7s (i think) from an ebay seller, contacted the guy, and he said "we didnt know they were counterfeit, we just ordered a large batch of them from one of our sellers", and then proceeded to list more and more auctions with the same counterfeit headphone?

    yeah im sure all the amazon market place and ebay sellers are innocent hahaha

    No. Don't remember ever even hearing about that. I've seen it before with other stuff though. It is possible that a wholesaler picked them up, having no idea about the actual product to be able to identify that it wasn't the real deal. It happens.

    I just built a headphone stand out of miscellaneous Ikea parts.. lol. It's so solid you could probably kill someone with it. Everything is that stainless steel stuff. It all cost me about $15 to $20 max to build. (some of the stuff I found in the 'returned items and clearance' section)

    Main stand portion: BJÄRNUM Bracket 11''

    Headphone holder post: CAPITA Leg 4''

    And of course the headphones.. Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80ohm

    Um, I believe you have my stapler, er, headphones ^_^
    Really though.... The DT770s are my FAVORITE headphones so far. Only downside is, is that their is no bass with my DAP since I have the 250s.

    They're not quite broke in yet... and the highs are way too harsh, probably due to the 0.5mm drivers... maybe I need an amp!?

    I would assume you need to re cable them. Perhaps shield it with a mc donalds straw.

    I thought about it. I may end up doing that.. but I wouldn't sell them at face value. It takes a little bit of work and time to drill the holes, plus different length screws that are metric and kind of hard to find.

    Oooooh maverick777... I love those Audio Techs.... and indeed a great pic.

    Aaron909... you can get a Canon A720IS for under $200 and it takes great pictures, esp. macro shots... I am still learning how to use mine.

    Head-fi is the devil. I just received my Alessandro MS-1's yesterday, I have a Little Dot MKIII on the way and I'm already thinking about the Zero DAC since it now can be had for under $150 shipped. My wallet is not happy about this new hobby.

    Canon is the way to go for Point and Shoot camera's and for camera's under $400 in general. The make very good cameras.

    I use Canon point and shoots (S400 and SD450), but I took the picture of my phones with a Nikon D80. There is not absolute best when it comes to DSLR's, but I prefer Nikons in that arena.

    The A720IS is a good camera. Especially given how affordable it is.

    PS: Got my A900's based on reading Head-fi. (Also got Super.fi Pro 5's and Altec Lansing im716's from reading the forum) Be careful of that site if you're on a strict budget. Ignorance is bliss. :D

    ***New Portable Setup***

    For a while I've been using rubber bands to attach my iPod to my Corda Move and had to use a silly mini-to-mini cable straight out of the headphone-out.

    My portable setup has now had some nice additions:
    - LOD connector to female mini-jack
    - Cable (made a few hours ago)
    - Atrio M5s (replacing my Creative EP-630s)

    Okay, it isn't the best portable setup in the world and the cable isn't exactly great, but at least I don't have to worry about everything falling apart when I'm carrying the thing around!

    iPod --> Custom Cable --> Corda Move --> Atrio M5

    I'm still not too happy carrying about £370 worth of equipment around with me, but at least it sounds good!
