    Dang it all... Adorama has the HE-560's on sale for $350 shipped. Beats the $470 I just paid by just a bit. And of course, the place I purchased from doesn't accept returns.

    You can't win them all...

    Can you not accept the shipment and have them sent back? That sucks...where did you buy them that they don't accept returns?

    Is there a special discount code or something at Adorama? When I look them up they're listed at $499 on their website? That is a decent discount if you can get it.

    HiFiHeaven... I thought about trying to refuse the shipment but the whole thing will turn into a big mess with a restocking fee or them not taking it. Win some... Lose some...

    I followed the link posted on slickdeals.net to see it.

    I should also mention how great the Emotiva Airmotiv T1 speakers sounded that I heard at CES. I thought they sounded quite good. Then I saw the price and was floored.

    That's great to learn they sound really good. I've read positive reviews but I've not heard them. The price is really good for a pair of towers if they really do sound that good.

    I try to help other people spend money. It's one of my skills.

    Well, I'm very underwhelmed with the HE-560. I think they sound pretty bad. Nothing like my HE-500.

    Edit: It's the stupid cable. The balanced XLR cable is wired wrong. Idiots... Oh, and it's glued together so I can't open it up and fix it.

    Bummer. Another strike against the HiFi-Man brand.

    I sent them an e-mail. We'll see if their support is as bad as their reputation.

    FWIW, the headphones sound good with the 1/4" TRS cable.

    Is the cable is removable? Maybe they can send you a new one.

    I cannot hear well over 10K, so I would not spend that kind of money on a head phone.

    Yes, the cable is removable. I'm hoping they will just send me a new cable.
