    No worries. As you get deeper into this, you'll start to discover what you what or you might just stop there. High end headphones is always a rabbit hole so enjoy what you have for a while.

    Yeah not sure if that is a good thing, I expect the b stock is returns but maybe just stock with damaged packaging. I'll post up a review here anyway.

    Could be either; but esat, who bought a B grade G6 recently, said it was like new, just a battered box.

    Given it and the full price non-b-stock came in stock at the same time, I'm hoping it is just boxes that were damaged in transit :) Makes the most sense to me.

    Sennheiser HD 598's here. I utterly love them and have run open back Sennheisers for gaming for about 12 years now.

    IT says refurbished on the sticker, not a mark on it or the box :) Very happy!

    Same here dude, mine arrived earlier so I've been busy messing with settings. Tarkov is just updating as well so all good timing.
    Mine looks mint and makes a hell of a difference.
    I've just had a mess about on Spotify so far but it's night and day to my old soundcard and headphone set up.
    I'll be gaming all night testing them out.
