Got my $11 ATH-M50 s today  

post #1 of 140
Thread Starter 

I could not open the thread about the sale so i thought i would start this one. Anyone else get theirs yet?

I really am enjoying these headphones so far. A little bassy for my taste. They're not burned in yet so, I'll wait before commenting on how they sound too much. The build quality is great for headphone that go for about $110 normally. I little tight on my head but not too bad. 

Best $11 headphones ever!

Congrats! Glad you're enjoying them. Mine are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday even though I have Prime and it was supposed to be here today. Enjoy!

Mine are "out for delivery" now. I can't believe it. Even if thye are just ok for $11.00 why not?

Yeah, I paid $79 more then you lol. But I had the same issue, I dont have a big head but they are a little tight. They are also bassy but that lets up a little after burn in. They are great phones and even better for $11. I didnt think it would work out for you guys. Most times the mistake is caught and they withdraw it. Which in most cases they are allowed to do. Anyhow, have fun and you will always have a great story behind them.

Kind of sad anyone would actually do that and force the seller to ship it out and not cancel the payment.  Really sad, actually.

I thought about that too... one thing is a promotion, another thing is a misprice...

Now wait a minute you guys. They did not force anyone to do anything. They didnt steal anything. The seller could have called it out and not sent the items. But they didnt. They saw a price and paid for it. I disagree that it is sketchy. We dont know 100% for sure it was a price mistake. It would be kind of low if after they informed you of the mistake to actually fight with them about it. We can agree on that I think.

As I said in the other thread... it could have been a very clever marketing campaign. A limited quantity offered at a sick price, creating an amazing amount of buzz and some extremely satisfied customers. And as I said elsewhere... they could have cancelled every order and refunded any money charged.

 

Mine just arrived. Until it did, I wasn't completely sure I'd see them.

I am one of those extremely happy and loyal customers who never heard of 17th Street Photo before this.

In all seriousness if it wasn't me then it would've been someone else. I know it's not a great reason and I do feel bad for the seller but I figure I'll at least pass them on and enjoy them instead of flipping it on eBay. If Amazon emailed me and explained that it was a mistake and asked me to send it back I wouldn't think twice about it. Of course this 17th street place might be worth looking at considering they're honoring their mistake.

That's correct. Many have said the same in other threads.

So I should feel guilty for their mistake? I have morals, but someone was going to get the deal one way or the other. They could have just canceled the order, it's not hard.

If they called me asking for them back i'd have ZERO problems returning them. I do however think it is completely wrong to resell them for a profit.

 

The seller should be more careful of listing products with the correct price next time. There is also no reason they should have had the listing up for so long.

If I was the seller, i'd definitely consider this a lesson to be more careful next time. It's nice though that they shipped them. I would have done the same if I had listed them at the wrong price.

I do hope that nobody got fired over it.

 

I doubt the company selling them is really hurting because of this. Maybe if it was a smaller company.

 

BTW I got mine today.

 

Are you seriously saying some of you would have passed on the deal because it was the right thing to do? I find that hard to believe.

Do you really think the M50 needs any more buzz? I can't think of any higher praised headphones under $150.

Some actually do follow their morals. And it's those who lack morals or have a hard time following them who have the hardest time believing this. I went to church yesterday - and I know there are those who would have considered this an easy decision to make - do the right thing - instead of acting like an animal without morals.

there is something called common sense, it was clearly a mis-priced listing and people purchased much more than 1?  Whoever purchased even one set should be ashamed.  I took names down, everyone who said they purchased the set for $11 will never get to buy anything I have for sale here at head fi. You took advantage of that seller, why wouldnt you take advantage of me? Something like this happened to me before on ebay, I was forced to ship something that was worth 540$ for 54$.  I had no idea why, I typed 540, but after the auction was listed it became $54 buy it now.  Nothing sucks more than that.  Shameful, just shameful.

I think he was referring to the seller themselves and not the M50. Give a great deal on a well praised headphone might get someone to notice your name and become a customer or at least that's what I think he was meaning. Either way you guys do have a point I'm going to contact 17th Street Photo and see what can be done.
