    Was wanting to pull the trigger on this a few days ago but made myself wait for black friday, worth it!
    Shame about the 20 day shipping period tho :(

    EDIT: can anyone recommend a good budget headphone stand to go with this purchase?

    These are damn good all-rounder headphones. I have the older (but effectively the same) X2. Make everything sound very fun and lively with a pleasing sound signature. If you game a lot these are great too because of the big soundstage. You can incorporate something like a VModa mic-cable too if you want chat capabilites, as it has a detachable cable.

    Just a quick noob question…in terms of just audio quality, will these be better than Sony wh-1000xm3?

    •  

      Made for different purposes completely. These are probably only for home use as they are open back, and hence will not isolate any sound.

      Completely different type of headphone, but yes, in terms of pure audio quality alone, in a quiet environment, these will sound better than the xm3 for sure.

      But totally different usage - these would be strictly for home use.

    Paid around $180 from memory for my Fidelio X1 back in the day - but that was a crazy lightning deal, and back when the AUD was actually pretty strong! X2/X2HR have never dropped this low before - nice to see them get down to a similar price!

    Great deal, I would totally buy one if I didn’t already have the X1 (plus I’m a basshead, and don’t mind a bit more bloated bass, so the X1 probably suit me better anyway!).

    But would happily recommend these! As Captain Howdy said above, add a V-Moda BoomPro mic, and you’ve got a great gaming headset! :)

      I think I got the x1 on the same deal, been rocking them ever since!

        Another X1 owner from the same deal back in 2014.

        Those X1s are still going strong, but I am tempted to go for the X2s for one reason alone: removable ear pads and no black ear pad residue rubbing off onto everything (apparently the X2s and X2HRs have a better dye on the ear pad felt material that doesn't rub off). After 5 years of heavy use, my X1 ear pads have quite a lot of embedded grime and that felt material is a pain to clean.

    It's a good price, but not as good as the Amazon.com price where it's USD $99.99 (shipped and sold by Amazon.com - but they won't ship this to Australia).

    That should translate to around $165 AUD from the global store here (Amazon US) after accounting for currency conversion and GST but once again Amazon are adding in an extra hidden margin on top of the US price.

    Great lower cost option instead of forking out $500 or so for an HD6XX from the A2A deal, plus the amp/DAC to power it. I got the X2 from a previous deal

    Thanks for this.

    Why does it say $219 AUD for me?

      Have you followed the link from here?
      Try selecting "See all new"

        It seems the deal link just takes you to the Amazon AU site, where the price is significantly higher.

        The Amazon US site has them for $119 USD currently, which equals $173.98 AUD according to XE.com (factoring in the lousy conversion rates most banks offer you with online transactions and that's around $180 AUD).

        •  

          Yes, the deal was through the AU store. The seller was the Amazon Global Store meaning Amazon US. Take into account that you don't get the US price converted in the AU store, it usually has 10% GST on top and then some. Good luck next time.

            @AncientWisdom: No the deal wasn't through the AU store ever. The OP has linked to the wrong Amazon deal in his post.

            The US store has had the X2HRs for $119 USD/$180 AUD since November 25th (in fact, even lower for a few days from November 28th - December 2nd) and has always been in stock. That is the original deal being referred to here.

            The AU store has not had the X2HRs for $180 AUD save for one day on December 1st. They've hovered north of $190 AUD for past few months.

    Original link has gone up in price. It's currently ~$188.50 here https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B06ZZXKZ25. The price is slowly dropping and it seems to be going in and out of stock frequently.
