Could you elaborate on this a little? Thanks!

I would rather not go Custom Molded.

Thank you for your help.
Yeah, I saw those prices on Amazon, too. I am wanting a set of SE310s but the reputable price is knocking them out for me. Ever since having been burned by Sennheiser fakes I've been very leery about buying from a small, unknown source and have been sticking with the well known ones like Newegg, Antonline and such, all of whom have the SE310s over $200.

Basically, you go to live.com (Microsoft's search engine - they want more people using it), search for something like "Shure SE530" and hopefully you see a link to ebay that says "You may get 25% off with PayPal if eligible." You should have a little banner at the top that says "Microsoft cashback 25%" on ebay after you click it. Almost all buy-it-now auctions (and only buy-it-now, no regular auctions are valid) will be eligible for cashback assuming you pay via PayPal. The thing is is that you won't get the cashback for 60 days. If you can wait that long, it's a great deal. One thing to note is that warranties will probably not be valid unless you purchase from an ebay seller that is an authorized dealer. That's the trade off. You can get a warranty from a company like Squaretrade but that's extra money and may or may not be as good as dealing with the product's manufacturer directly.

Also note that once you have the little banner you can search for other things and the cashback offer will still work on those (assuming they are buy-it-now). Limit per ebay account is 3 cashback offers, $250 per offer (so potentially you could receive $750 overall assuming you bought three $1000 items).

Further details are at the following threads:

Live.com 25% is back and running. - SlickDeals.net Forums

35% cash back from eBay purchase using Microsoft Live Search *No selling!* - SlickDeals.net Forums

You should probably read through those if you have any trouble because chances are that others have had the same questions and they've been answered, as well as head-fi not being the correct place to ask or discuss these things

The additional 10% off is if you're lucky and you got an email from ebay about it. This one gives you the discount immediately. The code is CJULYFUN0810P but it will only work if you got that email from ebay and tie that email address to your PayPal account.

I feel your pain with the eBay Sennheiser counterfeits, I bought one myself. But the Shures are not as subject to knockoffs. The only fake Shure's I've heard about are a lower-end pair with a hybrid black and white (half and half) case. The sealed box versions have not been duplicated to the best of my knowledge. Personally, there are fantastic deals to be had on eBay for Shures, I would definately by there. By the way, the SE310s are phenomenal earphones, especially if you can get them for a bargain. I wouldn't recommend purchasing the SE110s or SE210s, they just aren't that great for the price. The SE310 is a large improvement!

I didn't buy my Senns from eBay but, rather, a Pricegrabber storefront seller. I imagined eBay would be worse for fakes.

EDIT
I thought I would list the seller's name so others won't be ripped off by this seller: StashUrCash
