The steps required depend on the details of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. Taking these steps allows Amazon to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. 


This won't require you to purchase the product. You can easily remove it from your cart if you decide not to buy it." 

We realize that this is an inconvenience and are regularly working to educate manufacturers on how their policies impact our customers. We welcome your comments and suggestions in our forum on this topic.

Ultimate Ears SuperFi 4

Not good, read the user reviews.

I had a pair a few years back, gave them to my daughter, after her earphones broke, they lasted another couple of months with her. We both agreed they weren't very good structurally and sound wise. No bass or limited bass, if I remember right.

A quick note on buying the expensive Shure SE535 or Westone 4 on Ebay. There are some so-so deals to be had but be careful.

 

One can get the Shure SE535 from seller proaudiostar who is an authorized dealer, open box, for $349 with the best offer feature on the ebay listing page, with free shipping. When they counter offered me the price, they also stated that they would send out a brand new unopened set if their limited supply of open box were exhausted.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Shure-SE535-V-SE535V-Sound-Isolating-Earphones-Bronze-/110667804937?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item19c450b109

 

Otherwise, the Shure SE535 goes for $369 at Mobile PC (untrusted, would not buy from them and not authorized dealer), $429 with shipping at AccessoryJack.com , a Hong Kong dealer that I have had good luck with in the past, or the current going rate on authorized US dealers $499.

 

As for the other biggie, Westone 4 -

again an authorized dealer, audiovengeance, will sell a brand new unopened set using best offer for $400 plus shipping.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290547971270&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

 

The Westone 4, being a newer product, has limited availability. A google search gets you only 3 sellers.

It goes for $449 plus shipping or free shipping depending on the dealer and or tax depending on your location. The best price found on these is from cyberworlds on ebay, but they are specifically named as an unauthorized dealer on the Westone site, so, unless you do not value a warranty, do not buy from them. 

Earphone Solutions will give you an extra 5% off using coupon code SAVE5.

 

Of course, the final course would be to wait it out for better sales, or a used pair from a fellow forum member.

Amazon has the Sony Hybrid tips for 7.99 + free shipping. I have prime, so I cant find out for myself, but it looks like anyone with a regular account is elligible for the free 3-5 day shipping w/o having to spend $25 on your order.

post #894 of 9235


They fit on Ultimate Ears, Sennheiser, Sony, ones with the wider opening. They won't fit on Shure, Westone, Etymotic, etc.

I just used the code H15 to get 15% off my UM3X order at EarphoneSolutions. it might work on others too!

^Good find.  Sadly, doesn't work for the W4.

post #897 of 9235

Amazon has the Creative Aurvana Live! for $69.99 and the Creative Aurvana Air for $79.99.  Tax in some states. 

 

I remember the CAL! being cheaper in previous years though this is the lowest it's been since Creative started selling their headphones directly and exclusively via Amazon.  The Air is probably my current favorite headphone and deserves a bit more love IMHO.

post #898 of 9235

It's been that price for a couple of weeks. It's a good price, but I have no need for it :(

Went to Radio Shack today, they had packs of Auvio tips on clearance for ~$3 (YMMV). Apparently these work pretty well with HJE900s. I really like them on my Golds too. They've a got a weird shape but it works -

Thanks for posting the coupon code, that's a nice percentage off.

Works on the Shure SE535, brings price down to $424.99, but one can do better on Ebay as mentioned above (authorized dealer proaudiostar)

Does not work on the Westone 4
