It probably boils down to how much you trust the website. They claim a 3 day returns warranty so if you buy it and the box doesn't have a registration number (found under a foil sticker that you scratch off) then send it back.
A further solution would be to buy it (or the modified A3) from a reputable eBay/Amazon seller/Online shop and use a forwarding service like https://pkship.com/
if you want to be sure.
That is really nice that you replied.... I am sing ath ws55 on my amazon fire phone and the sound is just not loud(better with iPhone 5s) but I think I need a amp/dac (portable) idk exactly... can you recommend one or do I reaaly need one? I chose a local store as they don't cost additional/shipping charges.
If I order it from usa through the site you mentioned the price will be bundled with additional charges and I fear it may exceed $100. Also, is fiio A1 a good amp/dac for ath ws55? Is its price $27 only? Because a local store here is selling it at $110!
$sorry to ask again but please reply as I don't know much about amps/dacs/headphones
The minimum retail price of A1 is 27.99USD. We limit this price in order to prevent the sellers selling the product in low price which will destroy the balance on market. Could you pls give us the link of the store sells the A1 for 110USD?
If you want only an AMP for your iphone5S using your ATH WS55, we recommend you the A3 or E12A. You can collect the prouduct with your iphone using the 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable comes with A3/E12A.
If you want an AMP&DAC for your iphone5S using your ATH WS55, we recommend you the K1 or Q1. You can collect the product with your iphone using an original Apple CCK cable and a USB to micro USB cable.
And it is just for your reference.
