Also I rarely manage to find what I'm looking for.
Also I don't think GOSF will make more difference. I'm all down for the current hot sellers like Havi B3 Pro, KC06, TTPOD T1E and more. None of which available here in India ~~
Actually I don't know if they are more reliable. I am not sure how they handle warranties and returns. Also it's likely they aren't authorized resellers, which is risky if you have your eye on chinese iEMs.
Most of the time small packages like IEMs slip through customs(ordinary post). But considering the deals that are often available, I wouldn't mind paying the customs duty.
We do have stores like Hifinage, who are authorized resellers for HiFiMAN, Vsonic, Astrotec, T-peos and Fidue. Granted they do not carry the entire range, but their prices more or less match the MRP and they take care or RMAs. The new Fidue A71 and A63 will be in stock soon too, which is good news.
