I just bought q-jays from her less than a week ago for 1180 and about 6 weeks ago a d-jays for around 800 (forgot the exact amount) and also a Fiio for 60. Hopefully I did not get ripped off. The box of my Q-jays have Kingsaudio sticker on it.......I believe they buy from them and sell it to me.

Slowth! Yea I will go tonight and find out. I was there a couple days ago at Kingsound, and they were still $380~ USD.

I auditioned the Ibasso T4 at mingos, man it is pretty good. But I made a commitment to stop putting money in the headphone hobby...

Standby brother. Let you know by tonight.

Which shop offers Fiio amps? I mean any of the bigger shops (Mingo's, Kingsound), or can anybody describe more clearly, where the shop with the lady is located?

I did not see E5 there, only E3, sticker price is 68 but since i bought q-jays from them, they are willing to part it for 60. If you takes the escalator to 2nd floor, as soon as you get to that floor, look to your left. The store is small right at the corner next to shop selling food/drinks. A rather young lady around late 20-s to early 30's usually man the shop.

They carry speakers, cables, etc. They also have 5fi, 3fi, um1, m-jays and some entry level shure. Anything higher end have to pay down payment and they will get it from you within 3 hours. I guess they buy from big reseller on reseller price and markup a bit for profit.

What i suggest to do if there's enough time is to go to kingsaudio or mingo, look for anything you want, negotiate the price down and go to her shop. Ask her to source it for you at lower price. I believe she could get a slightly better price. Not much, maybe 50-100hkd cheaper but for me, its the art of shopping

Thanks for the info. Do you know whether they can order amps like iBasso?

Where does she get her stock from?
post #42 of 52
Seriously, where is this 298 place? I have no idea where this place is. Thanks!
post #43 of 52
Slowth, the westone 3 are still 3000-3080 at both places.

Are you not liking your Freqshows? Or are you trying to acquire the Westones for entrepreneurial opportunities?

Chiefroastbeef,
Do you know where 188 is? If you do its right in front of it (they are seperated by a street). Its on 298 Hennessy Road (hence the name 298). If your taking the MTR, the quickest way to go would be through exit A4, and walk straight along Hennessy road (east if you know your bearings). Here's a link to google maps:
