I just wrote Beyerdynamic a letter demanding to know why they have so little respect for their loyal customers who paid $1,400 for a T1, that they are allowing their authorized retailer (Beach Camera i.e. Buydig) to sell them at 99 cent store prices. If I don't get a satisfactory response I'm returning my T1s as soon as they arrive.
What a low rent "buy our crap off the back of this truck" company.
If anyone else wants to send a letter, you can do so here. http://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/contact.html
If the headphone is so cheaply made that it can be sold for $750 (including free overnight shipping), then nobody should be paying $1,400 for it. I guaranty Sennheiser would never allow anyone to sell a new HD800 for less than $1,500, and if they caught you trying to do so they would not honor the warranty. I spoke with them about this after seeing an HD800 on sale from a store in China; they told me there is a good chance it's fake and that if I buy it I'm not getting warranty service. Sennheiser has a whole website devoted to listing all the retailers whose warranties they don't honor. But here Beyerdynamic is letting an authorized retailer crap all over everyone who loyally paid full price, thinking they were getting something worth $1,400.
You have a hilariously juvenile perspective on basic economics.
