Oh well, for those looking for a deal on triple-flange isolation like in these, you can always check out the Fischer Audio Tau, I've ordered one and I'm looking forward to hearing it next week. It's only $24 http://www.fischeraudio.com/card.php?id=126

Short update on my TF10/borderlinx situation: borderlinx has received the parcel from amazon today and billed me a total of 44 Euros for shipping and taxes to Germany.

110 Euros total for brand new TF10s is a pretty good deal!

It does, I missed out on the cyber monday meelec M6 deal by two hours or so (timezones), I wanted to find out which one is better, Tau or M6.  For the normal price of each one, I think Tau, because reviewers have said it sounds much better than $24.

I have a pair of M6's. I would not cry if they were stolen, run over by a car, or stopped working.

As I understand,  Dakmart is an authorized Sennheiser seller of refurbished items (IE8/7/6 etc), agtron, buy.com sells products from them, so they should be the legit and the real thing when you receive from these sellers as well, but if they are covered by Sennheiser I don't know. I have personally purchased products (IE7) from agtron that was the real deal at a very reasonable price.



adgtron is definitely not an authorized dealer. As a matter of fact, it is listed on Sennheiser NON-authorized list.  See here >>>>   http://www.sennheiserusa.com/nonauthorized

I don't why and what a vendor has done to earn a spot on that list. I got mine from Dakmart via buy.com for $185.00 shipped last week.


Adgtron is an authorized Sennheiser dealer. It is Sennheiser's fault for putting his name on the NON-authorized list. If you call in Sennheiser and ask for Michael Mandas, he will verify that Adgtron is an authorized dealer. Michael Mandas is the southeast sales manager at Sennheiser USA. You can google his name. This means, if you buy a product from Adgtron, Sennheiser will cover for the warranty. I got my IE8's from him and also got replacement cables from the warranty.

I called Sennheiser before purchasing from Dakmart and adgtron is NOT authorized according to the person I spoke on the phone. One would expect adgtron to ask Sennheiser to fix this error as I told adgtron that their name was on that list some three weeks ago? And yet they are still on that list.  Why doesn't Mr. Mandas take the steps to remove adgtron name from that list instead of answering calls from customers to verify adgtron dealer status ? I can't imagine southeast sales manager taking a customer service calls unless he has a personal gain from this. The product adgtron sells may be genuine but authorized, they are not.

In addition, jacey has TWO posts.  Not to accuse him of anything, but it a bit shady that someone with two posts would make such an impassioned statement concerning a retailer when it's well known that retailers post on Head-Fi all the time (although generally with full disclosure that they are, in fact, a retailer).  I would stay away from any retailer on a company's non-authorized list, especially when there are plenty other authorized retailers...

post #221 of 9235

when I shot them an e-mail last month, they told me theirs are purchased from Dakmart. I'm guessing JD (signature from the e-mail) buys discounted bulk from Dakmart and offloads them on Amazon. Based on user experiences here, they are legit 'phones, just not a direct dealer with Sennheiser.

 

BTW: I vote we start using the wiki function for the second post, to keep deals separated from the social jargon

2 for 1 promo going on at Jaben's online store

[edit] offer valid only till 5 Dec


This looks like a really good deal to complement my TF10 purchase... can anyone vouch for these guys?  I was considering getting a vi cable to use with my phone, but I'm not sure I really need the mic that bad.

Jaben is a legitimate retailer with a worldwide reputation.

Anybody know if the ES8 works with other IEMs (customs), or just the UE?
