My gut says no to these Sennheiser IE80 on ebay (Too good to be true). But how can these guys manage to get 100% positive feedback all the time if they are fake IEMs?

I just bought another pair of hps too, Technical Pro HPT990  aka Takstar HI2050... which is getting shipped to my work address. biggrin.gif

 

I just did a review of the HPT990 over in the Takstar thread.  I love the sound and build quality of these.   I see you have the Somic too.  That'll be an interesting pair to compare to.

If I return them, I'll receive a 125€ refund. Together with the savings of the Comply tips, I'm at about 140€. If I could find a new pair, with further 24 months of warranty, for said 140€, it would be much preferrable, don't you think so?

 

Returning them will effectively extend the warranty, but the cables are user replaceable. As mentioned above there are a couple of pins at the end of the cable, no need to go into the innards. I replaced mine with the Jaben twisted cables and it made a big difference.

 

See this thread for a review of TF10 cables.

I don't know much about fakes, but would the packaging be faked as well as the accessories and phones themselves? Seems like a lot of trouble, but when making money is involved, I guess anything is possible. These look very inviting: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Free-Ship-New-Sennheiser-IE80-HiFi-Earphones-/281067383994?pt=UK_DVD_Film_TV_TV_Memorabilia_LE&hash=item4170ebecba

In addition, do "fakes" and "clones" refer to the same thing? If they do, they might be worth it, if they are identical except that they aren't made by the "right" company. Take, for example golf club clones. Its sometimes difficult to tell them apart from the genuine club, performance wise. Of course, if headphone/ earphone fakes/clones are inferior in performance and/or build quality, that would be a different story. Has anyone here bought fake earphones? Is it possible to buy fakes, and not even realize it because they were such a good copy?

Do you notice they ship from China? The seller also sold many IE8, I think there are fake.

The thread here has comparison pictures of fake vs. real Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 headphones, complete with all the packaging faked in great detail.

Those are regular prices. In fact, in the two years since SE215's debut, it has NEVER went over $99. And it goes below $99 quite often. 

 

Please know what you are posting and at least do some research. Sites like camelcamelcamel, or just a google shop search, would help a great deal (no pun intended).

Yeah it's true. ONce in a while you will find the SE215 on sale for $85ish.  I returned them though, very well built but almost a basshead IEM for me.

Speaking of Shures, there are a few returns on headphone.com for amazing deals imo.

 

http://www.headphone.com/support/b-stock-outlet.php

 

SE215 - 69$

SE315 - 169$

 

Both IEMs are awesome if you like silky smooth mids.

I did read your post .. and if you look in my avatar I have owned the tf10's and removed cables numerous times its really nothing to worry AT ALL.

This looks interesting for anyone that still uses an iphone 3g/3gs as a source.

 

$49

I'm also getting the DT880 600ohms and Etykids 5. atsmile.gif Gotta find some way to split time with each of them...

The 315 can be bought on Amazon for the same price. But those se215 are a good deal.
