KRK Classic 5
Was US$150/ea, now on sale for US$125/ea (17% drop) on amazon.com (2nd amazon listing here).....

I see the KRK Rokit 5 G4 that Amir tested here has also dropped $50/pr to $298 a pair. It was $350 til March 1. Specs seem close to the Classic, but with what looks like a very useful DSP room EQ built in. Amir did not test the DSP. The Classic has a nicer waveguide look, but Amir recommended the G4 without trying its built in DSP.

Philips SHP9500
Over-the-ear, open-back headphones.
Was US$74, now on sale for US$64 (13% drop) on amazon.com
Seller: Worldwide Suppliers
Last time it was this low was back in Dec, making this 2nd best deal in the last year.

SHP9500 price went up this weekend. Back to $64 today
https://www.amazon.com/Philips-SHP9500S-Precision-Over-ear-Headphones/dp/B00ENMK1DW

Maybe this is going to be the new normal, when the prices is more often $64 than not. Or I wonder if Philips may be clearing stock to drop the SHP9500 now that the SHP9600 is out?

Guess we'll find out :)

If you want more from Tyll Hertzens after the AKG N90q post 2315, here is a deal I just found on the most recent Tyll review I know of...in full van life mode.

Tyll reviews the Funcl W1 and Funcl AI TWS headphones for a van life friend here. I see the smaller W1 is available for $20 here (same as the indegogo price) and the AI which indegogo'd at $50, for $20 after the on page coupon code.

Reviews are meh...but who are you going to trust, Amz reviews or the self described "worlds most authoritative headphone reviewer" with perhaps a couple of Pabst Blue Ribbons on.

Looks like one more day for the $299 N90Q:

https://www.harmanaudio.com/akg/N90+Q.html

Suggestion if you buy: Pay extra for other than the included base ground shipping. I did not, and am still waiting 10 days after supposedly being shipped via an apparently incompetent mixture of UPS and USPS called 'UPS Mail Innovations''.

I watched UPS tracking where it took 4 days to show up at all. Eventually it arrived at a UPS facility 10 miles from my address, whereupon it was transferred to USPS - who promptly shipped it 140 miles away. As UPS tracking stopped.

Buy extra shipping:)

Better choice for a starter 2ch system between JBL 590 refurbs ($760) and Klipsch RP-280FA ($600)? Powered by a Denon AVR

He said Klipsch and better in the same sentence. :D
Sorry @hhkg34 but we’re a bit snobbish here so I’ll apologize. You should really take your question and start a new thread, this is for deal talk.

The Klipsch RP-280FA have upward firing Atmos speakers in them; you'd be better off with the RP-280F unless you plan to extend the 2ch system into an Atmos home theater at a later date.

I own a 7.2 channel Klipsch reference system with RF-82 II upfront and I'd choose the JBL 590. The Klipsch are great for home theater and have better choices for matching center channels and surrounds. But for stereo only go with the JBL.

KOSS KPH30I are $20 plus shipping on Drop
https://drop.com/buy/koss-kph30i

I got m, love m, love m even more with the Grado 1000 pads mod.

Any generic giant size Grado pads will do like these for $11ish. Check to be sure they are the huge over ear pads.

They look silly but are nutso comfortable and sound great. I will not link to Z-reviews discussion on principle, but if you Google Kph30i Grado pad mod you will find it. Like wearing giant weightless pillows, but HiFi.
