    Thanks OP, hopefully these turn out better than the Philips CitiScape Uptowns I got. Where is the love for this deal from everyone? +

      I got the Phillips CitiScape Downtowns which are pretty good, but I prefer the MDR-V55, better bass and louder volume.

        Exactly what I was hoping for.

    •  

      Not a basshead? They're not bad after a recable for rap and electronic.

  •  

    Shame they don't have the all white version.

    When you're not logged in to the Dick Smith site, it says home delivery is available. However if you log in or put it in your cart, suddenly home delivery is unavailable.

    Bugger. My +1 may have been a bit premature.

    I got these for $50 from Dick Smith last time they were on sale. Excellent. The cord is quite short though that's the only downside.

  • +1 vote

    Yerhp it says home delivery but when you add it to cart it greys out, great price if you can find some in stock near you. No store near me has stock sadly ;(

  •  

    Wow that was an effort. Site continuously dropping my login.
    Order finally done. Thx OP.

    Great sound from my red version I got a few months ago, just don't eat or move when using them as they creak a lot.

      i kept getting a weird loop… click on the store to pick up and try to confirm order then it took me back to confirming your order page

  •  

    No stock near my place, give up. Good price though.

  •  

    Hmmm, wonder how bad the comfort really is? Still bought a pair… needs to be OZBARGAINED!

    • +1 vote

      not as good as my Phillips Downtowns which are extremely comfy, but nothing to worry about as these are still comfortable :)

  •  

    I grabbed one - good to pair up some Sony branded cans with my new PS Vita!

    Still have an unopened pair of Phillips Shibuya headphones from a previous Ozbargain win - ended up with them for $8 and will be interested to see how these compare.

    How is the sound leakage on these?

      They're closed headphones, so there shouldn't be much.

    No stock anywhere near me (in the Middle of Sydney).

    Sick of DS stupid stock issues, discounting when they only have a few units left then we all get excited.

      There were plenty 17 hours ago.

  •  

    I "reserved" stock through click & collect at castle hill. They just called & told me they have no stock.
    That's pretty disappointing as I could of done click and collect at a number of the other Sydney stores which had stock when I made my order.

    •  

      Same here in Hornsby store. They told me they were out of stock on Thursday…

    Just picked up the last one at Dicksmith Springvale. Thanks OP !

    Just picked up a pair of red ones. Very happy with them. Any reviews knocking comfort or length of cable are a bit harsh I reckon, to me the are perfectly comfortable and cable length is fine. Cheers OP! Still 2 sets in black at Noarlunga SA as of 2 hrs ago.

  •  

    Just picked up my pair - haven't opened them yet but look good. Will check them out properly later today. Cheers to the OP.

  •  

    Dunno if all David Jones is run by dick smith now… but the one at Bondi is and they price matched. If someone can tell me how to post the receipt i'll do so lol

    Picked up my click and collect from nunawading. Now I know what good headphones sound like, awesome.

    •  

      When I tested them at JB, they were the best sounding in their line up of headphones, which included several at twice the price of the MDR-V55, so I agree they are awesome :).

      •  

        Yeah after trying mine out, i agree the sound quality is better compared to my citiscape from the HN sale… but its not nearly as comfortable… it feels like it clamps onto my ears and just hurts after 30 mins of use

        Still great headset

    •  

      much more presence than my Sennheiser HD438's - a set I was never happy with. Very happy with the sony's. A replaceable cable would be nice but excellent product at this price. Captain Beyond's self titled album sounds rad!

  •  

    Picked up today!! Thanks OP!!!

    david jones in melbourne CBD has a few pairs, was there 10 minutes ago.

    Picked up the last pair at DS Redbank this morning. Used a coupon for an extra 7.5% off so only paid $32.36. Good deal!

  •  

    Can you share the coupon for 7.5% off please it will help for someone who can find the stock available

    •  

      Sorry, the coupon says it is only for Virgin Australia employees and the staff at Dick Smith checked my ID to confirm it.

  • +1 vote

    By coupon, I think he meant staff discount card.

  •  

    Dick Smith at David Jones in Chadstone Shopping Centre has 1 black pair left about 2 hours ago. It scans at full price ($149) so you need to refer the salesperson (if you didn't get the salesman that served me) to their website for the discount price. Good Luck.

    •  

      I had the same issue and it took me time to show them and took another time to wait them phone to ask somebody…

    Just got the last one at Majura Park ACT.

    woo, my persistence paid off, got a pair for home delivery (black version)
    :D

  •  

    Is it sold out? I can't actually find a store with stock when I click the click and collect option :(

  •  

    Nothing anywhere on the Gold Coast. Reserved via click and collect, Got the last pair at Ballina. Giving my skullcandy GIs to the kids to destroy.

  •  

    Sorry for my long post.I just went to DS on Rundle Mall today. I aksed the Chinese girl and she confirmed the Price and said it run out of stock, however, she checked on the system and guided me to David Jones where is still locate on Rundle mall.she is so helpful!!! The saleman at David Jones is another story!! When I asked him, he quickly get the headphone on the shelf and said, $149.95, you can only get discount 30% at the price, NOT 34.95. He even didn't look at me when I tried to explain and show him. After he phoned someone which is make me wait so long, he said that he could not offer me that price and the price on ozbargain is not DS officially price.He still made me wait when he's browsing from categories to anoyher one on dicksmith w website. I said why don't you use the search bar, he ignored me and me wait again…until I used my phone to search and show to him. He must agreed at this stage. Finally I got it .Putting on his position, I totally understood him. But i can't tell the way salesman treat his customer is a good way.

      Why mention Ozbargain to him?

    •  

      Actually i got mine from DJ in Bondi (operated by DS), they priced matched it no questions asked… they just had to check the price at DS and done.

      Perhaps it was because you mentioned you were a "pro"

  •  

    Just check again and seems it's available in browns plain (BNE) again, I used the click& collect and got an confirmation of reservation, still waiting for an conformation to collect. Wish me good luck.

    Overall really impressed with the sound considering the price tag.

    Great value pair as my backup / closed pair to my ad900x's.

    While they lack a bit in overall clarity, particularly in the mids, the bass is quite decent

    •

      You dont seem to have PM facility.

  •
