I don't know what's preventing people from building their own HD600s for less than half of the street price.
Anyhow, it makes me wonder how much the HD800 drivers cost since they are selling them for 1500.
I just found out that the left and right cups of the Sennheiser HD600 cost 120 dollars a pair.

QuoteI just found out that the left and right cups of the Sennheiser HD600 cost 120 dollars a pair.Does that include the driver?
Typically, if you buy "replacement parts", you'll pay more for a complete "'kit" of parts than you'll pay for the assembled & packaged retail product. Perhaps in this case it's a different story and you can assemble it yourself for less...
Do it if you can ! Don't forget that the sound doesn't depend only on driver, but their placement, resonance in the cups...
