$99 - BeyerDynamic DT 770 Closed-Back Headphones 16 ohm

Sold by Beach Camera through Newegg, this is a steal for these closed-back headphones, even if it is the 16ohm version.

For those not familiar with Beyerdynamic headphones, the DT770 comes in 16, 80, and 250 ohm versions. The 16 ohm versions are best suited for listening on a standard iPhone or other mobile device, while the 80 ohm version will be okay (if on the quiet side), and the 250 ohm version really needs a dedicated amplifier.

These are incredibly comfortable and, while not quite as amazing as the 80 and 250 ohm versions and lacking the velour cups, for the price this can't be beat.

Warning on NewEgg site:
'WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including one or more listed chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov'

Should this be of concern?

Doesn't everything in California have that warning now?

I'm surprised- figured this'd be front page material. Prior deals at this price were very popular.

Too bad I didn't see a diaper deal, I guess!

Keep in mind these are the "i" model. I wasn't sure what that was so I googled it:

I guess it depends on what you are looking for (as always).

Good concern. Most products have cancer causing chemicals even your keyboard. Some perspective: My personal opinion it is a good thing to have these warnings but the execution could use some work. We are getting exposed to a lot of this stuff, and keeping people informed is ideal and pressuring companies to use a little less of this stuff wouldn't hurt us. That said the warning isn't very clear and likely lacks specificity. I am not vouching for anything, but typically the main issue is what is inside it and not on the surface, though i wouldn't lick it.

A specific case is that they are likely using lead solder for the cable to the driver assembly. So when the cable fails don't open it up and re-solder it unless you take precautions and keep it away from children for example. We used to not have warnings and people would just solder thing things with out gloves and wouldn't even wash their hands and eat. Also keep in mind most of this stuff is more dangerous with occupational exposure not casual.

There are cancer causing substances in soils, your home all around you.

I see what you are saying, but these phones will be on your head for hours. I don't want to increase chance of developing a tumor while enjoying the music!

I think you'll be okay so long as you don't eat them.

These warnings, like lead, are primarily to prevent harm in households with children. So don't let you baby chew on them. Or yourself.
