I don't disagree, the build quality of all Beats I've seen has been poor for the price.

Are you in the right thread?

Eisenhower what exactly is your problem? You argue with everyone about petty things.

 

The words "troll" and "baiter" spring to mind. haha

And bring up beats, a completely different headphone, in a thread about the HD800 is the opposite of baiting?

Actually I brought up Beats, a little earlier in the thread, as part of a theory as to why headphones (including the HD800) are so expensive these days. The theory may be bunk, but it was relevant to the topic and certainly not trolling ...

When he bashed the beats completely out of context (he didn't quote you), then yes, it actually is irrelevant.

Why don't you contribute something useful instead of being pedantic lol.

So Canada doesn't have a VAT? That is really weird, because it actually does have one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goods_and_Services_Tax_%28Canada%29

Yes I think it's overpriced, but that's just me.
It's brighter than neutral, not to mention a dynamic type instead of electrostat or planar, etc.

If you own SR009's or omega II you definitely would have a preference for that tongue.gif

No kidding. And it is applied to the selling price upon purchase, so it does not account for the original difference in list prices between countries. Also does not explain why selling price of other headphone brands (except Grado) are pretty much par with the US.

 

Try again.

It seems that all the audio gear in all the countries outside the US are at the same higher price while US has it so much cheaper. Not fair!

post #479 of 684

Thats prolly cause america doesn't have as much import duties, taxes, and protectionism as other developed countries. The amount of import tax placed in Korea is retardily high. Also i find it funny that European high end hard liquor is cheaper in USA than in Europe

UK is a rip off....

 

For example I was just looking at getting some Fidelio X1 to try out....

 

UK price : £280

 

Germany price : £190
