Yes mate, it could be, depending on the second hand price..

I wonder if its even worth buying used based on that? Will Grzegors give you a basic year warranty on these with both fees applied? Otherwise I'd say hell no that's a rip off.

Yea iirc it's normal warranty etc since you're paying for ownership.

It could be worth it if you got one for a good price.

Personally id not pay over 600 euro for one tho

Why not? With that reshelling etc it's basically new. And 930 is still quite far from what a new set goes for.

What if a driver fails? I'd imagine it'd be pretty costly to repair it.

Besides, 930 is base cost. A new cable and connector costs 75 euros iirc. And shipping could get pretty expensive. You'd probably end up paying 1.1k?

At 1369 within and 1219 outside eu, I think it's pretty obvious one would purchase a new one.
Why do I only quote se5ref pricing? There could be an upgrade fee charged.

Feel free to whatsapp me if you want to ask more haha. Don't wanna spam this thread

Forgot about the other costs. You clearly know about this process more than me smily_headphones1.gif

After one year spent listening to SE5 ref, I would immediately buy new ones if I were to lose them. Second hand or not.

I can't say the same of my K10 and LCD2.
post #2318 of 2398

so we can reshell se5 ref to a 3rd party re-shell company , but this is not possible for se5 ult ?

and we have a fee of 330 euros +shipping back/forth if we buy a used se5 ut and have to reshell it at SE ?

do i understand correct here ?

Pretty much. Although you would def need the extra cable option if it doesn't come with one

I am not so sure, but as far as I know, there is no third party company to make Spiral Ear products remolded in silicone.

Yup, the last I heard Custom Art stopped doing remolds for Spiral Ear monitors. I don't know if Peter changed his mind since then though.

lol can't fault it until you try it though. Grezegors does indeed have a superb product IMO.

i am sure it's an amazing CIEM , when i win the lottery it's gonna be in my top 2-3 purchases :p

 

btw , the 330 euros for reshelling plus the 'no other company to reshell' clause makes this a very hard to resell ciem :rolleyes:

 

buy it for 1900 euros (price+impressions+shipping) and then knowing that you have to sell it at least 700 euros cheaper ? not many owners would take such a resell hit , me thinks
