That's $1,250 off the MSRP (and normal price) of $1,799. This ties the lowest price, last seen back in November 2021. Shipping is free.

Frequency response: 8Hz - 65KHz
Impedance: 50 Ohms
Sensitivity: 83.5dB
Weight: 470g (16.58 oz)

Note: This deal might be a website error - use the deal link. It doesn't show up in Adorama's advertised Memorial Day deals, nor if you navigate to the product page from google or adorama search results. The only way I was able to see the deal price is by going to one of the products that's actually listed in their MD sale (e.g. the HIFIMAN HE-560 V4 - thank you iconian) and then finding the HE6se among the "Customers Also Viewed" links. I was able to add it to my cart and go through the checkout process without issue (though I didn't actually place the order).

I bit on the Google Smart Speakers deal from earlier. I decided to cancel that order and bundle it with this and pay for next day shipping. Hopefully, I'll have it by this weekend!

Once it ships pray you have a powerful enough to make them sound their best. Expect to feed them 5W min.
If not, they will sound ok but not even come close to maxing out their potential.

Also $549 in Feb 2022. Their on sale price has gradually dropped from $650 to $550 over the last year. Adorama puts them on sale a lot, so, no reason it should not ship.

This V2 is only sold by Adorama so the "Suggested Retail" is pretty meaningless. Its a nice headphone...but don't buy just cause of the supposed huge discount.

Adorama often has open box customer returns that can be the lowest price on them...not in stock now.

A good amp is needed. On this we're in agreeance.

Don't be fooled by their somewhat low impedence.

I had this headphone and loved it.

I would still have it if the Hifiman Edition XS didn't come out at $499. The XS outperforms the V2 in almost every way IMO, and requires much less power.
