Sennheiser IE7 Fake or Real - Page 2

post #16 of 30
I brought the earphone from a different seller, he too has the exact same descrption. Look at his feedback he had sold 4 ie 7 and many Bose qc 2 and most of his sold items are gps. He offer squaretrade on the ie 7 he sold me. Since ie7 is so cheap on newegg on, I wouldn't take my chances until the price goes back up.

Sennheiser IE7 Noise Isolation Earphone Headphones IE 7 - eBay (item 230366848776 end time Sep-11-09 13:39:28 PDT)
They're 159 shipped, and they have over 90k feedback.
Would you say they're legit? I'm tempted...

I bought my IE8s from them and they were the real deal. They were pretty much new, they had never even been unwound from the cord winder holder thingamigigy. The package had been opened but everything was in great shape. Don't forget Bing Cashback, if you don't use it already, sign up. You will get another $15 off. Given the amount of openbox/display Sennheiser stuff they sell, I wonder if these are all really customer returns from a big retailer. Only catch is no warranty aside from the 90 days the seller gives you. You will get an offer for a SquareTrade warranty but for me it was not worth it.

Should I get these IE7's for 160+bing, or go to J+R and pay 190+tax and get the warranty...?

That IE7 in retail packaging should be real.

The seller said "This item only has a 90 day warranty", as mentioned in the auction. I'm assuming Squaretrade has a warranty available for a reasonable price.

ST wanted $31.99 for 1 year on my IE8s. I passed. That would have brought them almost to the going price from one of the Forum Sponsors.

If J&R has them for 190, I would go that route. I think you can get an additional 5% back from J&R though Bing cashback.

Here's the problem:190 retail, 300 online....
and I have 120 in total funds at this time, but I got refunded for a tube amp, so I have like...35 in the paypal, and 85 in paypal balance.

Gutcha, then try VMinnovations and if when they arrive you feel a little nervous about them, get the ST warranty. So far so good with my IE8s.

Could I e-mail the ppl on the J+R website and get them to adjust the price...?
post #27 of 30
I called them today and they told me they can't advertise the lower price, so the only way I can get that at that price is if I call-in or pick them up in-stores.

Hey there, this is my first post, though I've been reading these forums for a long while.

 

Well, I'm about to buy some Sennheiser IE7 phones, and these are the pictures the seller sent me:

What do they look like? Are they the real deal? Thanks in advance guys, I'd really appreciate your help.

I bought a fake pair of IE7's from a seller on ebay for about $60 once from someone who thought they were a real brand new pair, not one of these shady sellers who lists 30+ pairs.

What gave mine away upon visual inspection were:  

Cable - if you can see in the picture that the cable is thinner, it is fake.  The cable on the one's I received was very thin and kink-prone. I could crease it and after straightening it.

No accessories. - no clip, earhooks, case, or cleaning tool.  Wrong tips.

Plug and Y-splitter were opaque, not semi-transparent.

 

The sound however, was equivalent to those of a $30 dynamic earphone that you could pick up at you local electronics store.  If they were not $60 + shipping I would have kept them for the comfort of the IE7 housing =D
