For Sale:
RE262

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I got these with my preorder of the HiFiMAN 602.  I have RE-ZEROs so I used my own tips to try the 262s, so everything is mint and brand new with them.  I burned them in for about 20 hours at a moderate volume and didn't notice much of a change.  They seem to be very amp-hungry and pair extremely well with the HM 602 (synergy is quite something).  They have great bass and mids, with the highs not being as emphasized (but they are very extended).  I consider myself a bit of a treble-head so this isn't my kind of sound (for that same reason, I'm not a Senn-guy).  I already have the RE-ZEROs for outdoor use and I'm too afraid of bringing something as nice as these 262s out, and when I'm at home I listen to my Grado HF2s.  I simply don't need these, but I'm hoping that someone else will biggrin.gif

 

I'm including everything that I got with it (earbuds, shirt-clip, etc.) but it's important to note that they came with metal filters that I wish to keep, so I switched them with a full pack of RE-ZERO filters (they're the same size, just not metal).  With this in mind, I'm asking $170 shipped.  I have ebay feedback here: http://feedback.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=feedingfrenzy1&ftab=AllFeedback

 

I have pictures of these that I took with my iPod but I can't figure out how to upload them.  I'll post them as soon as I do, but there really isn't much to see.  Regardless, I'll get 'em up ASAP.

Surely it is against forum rules for you to charge more than you paid for items. You have the player for sale at $400 and the free iems at $170 so you are trying to profit from members. This is against forum policy I beleive. Please alter your sales pitch!!

I'm currently discussing things with another member.  If things fall through, I'll get back to you.

 

Although I hope that you do enjoy your DBA biggrin.gif

This is not a discussion forum.  I will, however, indulge myself.

 

You're wrong on both accounts; there is no such rule on this forum and I am in fact not making a profit on this when you factor in my time.  I paid $400 USD on August 4th (the preorder price with shipping).  The CAD --> USD conversion ran me an additional $23 and I got hit with PST and GST (13% import duties).  I'm not sure if they used the American dollar value to charge me duty on but it was an additional $60 odd dollars. 

 

Consider the following:

 

My total cost exceeded $480

 

I ordered before the RE262s were being included. I never asked for them, either


I waited over two months for my item to arrive.  My time is certainly worth something to me, and I'm not going to give the RE262s away for free when they have both monetary and personal value

 

If I was going to jack up the price to take advantage of the unavailability of the item, I would not only value the 602 at $440 (the regular price), not include shipping, but I would sell it as a package with the RE262s for $670 + shipping costs.  By selling them separately, I'm offering the head-fi community a good deal on both items

 

There are less obtrusive ways of publicly slinging accusations at people.  Forum ediquette is something that many of us on head-fi practice because we want to keep our posts both helpful and educational.  If you have a concern for somebody else's business, sending them a private message is generally considered the polite way to conduct yourself.
