Great price, but note that these may be version 1, which had a lot of issues, including poor choice of connectors.

That is a possibility I suppose. I would just assume that they would only have V2's as open box since they switched over early last year, but there is no way to be certain. One would hope that any V1's at this point would have to be warranty repair/refurbs . . .

They had an open box for $200 about two or three weeks ago and I purchased one then with the same thought process you have and was disappointed. Not only did I get the v1 with those terrible connectors it arrived in pretty poor condition. The left channel would cut in and out if the wire moved and it looked like a heavily used pair and not a like new open box. It had scratches on the grills, minor damage to the wood, and the pads looked well used. After contacting them for an exchange and asking if my replacement would be a better condition v2 I was informed "open box" are generally returns without issue but can include old returns that needed repair before being sold again but still shouldn't have been heavily used like mine looked. It appears they still have some of those old returns to get rid of. It's possible I just got unlucky but from the email it seems a v1 is still a good possibility. I was not happy at all with what I got but the return process was mostly easy.
