One additional note: even though the electrostatics say they come with an amplifier, it's actually just an energizer (electrostatics require a much higher voltage than you can get out of a regular headphone jack). They will still benefit from a better external amplifier.

You're correct, I was confusing it with a different model. Fixed title.


They actually do have a set of over-ear planars on sale, but the discount wasn't significant enough to make a post out of. But here it is anyway, if you're interested [monoprice.com].

The M650 is not an electrostatic headphone. The person you replied to got the electrostatic headphone for $240, which is $60 less than the current sale price of $300.

There were likely a limited number of open box electrostatics; I checked Monoprice's open box section soon after I saw that post, and there were none left.
