Please enlighten me to any B&O product that is worth its RRP for its sound or picture performance.

You really don't know much about B&O then. They're not mere style statements. They inveat in a lot of R&D. They invented class D amplification.

Compared to the cheap brands who mass produce stuff by buying components from other manufacturers, B&O makes most components in-house. Their products are known to last for 20+ years. Their build quality is second to none. B&O Avant TV for example doesn't use cheap plastic, it's made of aluminum and glass.

I think they must be finding the blue ones hard to shift as they are £179.90 on Amazon. 

The black ones are over £100 more. 

 

I quite like like the blue one and I might order a pair as I find my AKGs a bit uncomfortable.

Hadn't noticed Smile

 

I'd happily pay the extra 90 p thru the Amazon site. When ever I've had an issue with a seller on Amazon they've always reacted wel. I think they're likely to act quicker to retain their status on he site.

I ordered mine on Amazon, that way if you change your mind your can cancel.  Just got a pair for £20 on John Lewis clearance, this pair here:

They were £50. Pretty good too and you get a case.

I bought them from The Hut but they were faulty and couldn't get to hear them.

Fair enough. I wouldn't mind a pair at this price, but not keen on the colour!

If you missed out you can still get this deal:

I wouldn't recommend the seller though.
