This is some kind of led lamp with a speaker, and there is 4 of them.

I alredy send a message to head-director, and I m pretty shure this came all along from china, because inside the box there is the invoice and it says Hifiman HE 500.

Now I m waiting for Head Director s answer. mad.gif

 

Did you even consider this was a ultra modern reband of the classic that we know as the HE-500. Just strap some leather bands to it and wear them over your ears. That is quite the mistake.

Ya'll think that's a "mistake"?  When a known legit company regularly ships off expensive equipment, but the Postal or UPS workers know "what to open, grab and remove with similarly weighted" dummy objects?

sorry.  that's called theft in my book.

hope head direct gets you the real HP soon!

This is the reason why I often think twice about buying valuable items shipped from oversea.  Too much potential headache.

This seems like a long claim. I hope it's on head direct end so that the problem can be resolved quicker.

We got another rookie here wink.gif

 

In all seriousness I hope you get that figured out ASAP and get the HE-500. Their customer service is excellent.

This one from amazon:

 

NEW! Replacement Upgrade Headband Comfort Cushion Pad in Leatherette with snap locks.

Universal fit most Headphone models; Grado SR SRi-series, Sennheiser HD-series, Beyerdynamic and more. by AudioEquip

 

Thanks, I may just order that!

Thank you again, it certainly has helped!

Look Canadians,

if it's common to "fake claims" of fraud of headphones not being received in shipment as humor, then yah fooey on me.

I may be new to head-fi but old to the game of "BBS Forums on the nutty USENET dialup".

 

so if the original "I didn't receive my HE-500 I got bricks in the mail" was an attempt at humor, well- color it boring and a waste of time.

which it appears this post was as well.  sigh.

 

back to the music,

Ouch! that sucks man. Even if you get everything sorted out, waiting another 20 days+ sure is a pain in the ass. I know that feel because I'm brazilian too and have been there many times before.

Boa sorte!

I can only imagine the distress in seeing the box when you've been excitedly expecting the HE500s. My heart goes out to you.

back to the music,

They were not saying the claim of being sent the wrong item was the joke. However the message about strapping them to your head was a bit of humour.

Duly noted and concur.  alas my reply had nothing to do with "strapping to head" part.

although I am sure there IS a punch line in there somewhere.   ;-)
