Don't have anyone coming from US and ordering through agents would actually make it costlier and on top of everything, I won't really get any warranty.I agree, but longevity was one of your criterion
Quality does come at a price, and this is German quality at that.
I remember paying 3.3K INR in Bangalore. I'm sure you'll get it for quite a bit cheaper if you get them from US.
Is it really that good? What is the sound card you are using and any amps?Get the Senny HD202! Amazing lows, mids, 50mm bass driver (also found in some models of Creative!), you can even heard the gun shells dropping sound in Crysis 2 warhead, hardly audible in other HP!
