I have learned more from people who have differed from me than from those who have agreed with me.

Might help explain the price differences.

akg y50 on onedayonly at 599.
i have a pair which i bought there a while ago & which i use in the office & when i'm travelling or out for the day. i think they sound pretty good & are a real bargain at the price.

they are having an audio clearance, so there are a couple of other deals.

The geniuses at Onedayonly cannot get the description right:

"Compatible with Qualcomm aptX HD, aptX, AAC and SBC codecs, enabling wireless transmission with a resolution up to 24-bit/48kHz"

These are NOT Bluetooth cans!

The look of those velours doesn't support the "Barely used" description, but the price is a good place to start... :thinking:

Mine is not the pro version and the box claims them to be "Premium" and the impedance is cited as "30 Ohm/250 Ohm/600 Ohm" with no indication on the phones themselves what the actual impedance is, but the sound is really, really good, so the price asked here make these fantastic value for money, and that's a fact.
