Audiophiles in Dubai? - Page 8
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
How much are you selling it for ?
Another audiophile in the UAE here, Al Ain to be more specific.
Currently putting together my budget portable setup. Currently have JVC HA-FX1X earbuds (epic sound after a few hours burn in, purchased for 150 from Jadopado) and a Sony NWZ-B173 player (seriously incredible little thing, 250 from Carrefour). Next on my list is a Fiio e6 (ultimately want the e11 but will try out the e6 first as it's pretty cheap).
Bought Sennheiser IE80 and Sennheiser Amperior at just 1499 Dhs (US $410) at Jumbo electronics, Mall of the Emirates.
They are clearing old stock and if you put a good bargain they would give almost anything away .
I was at Jumbo and was planning to buy IE 80 after my beloved IE 8 got deceased some time back.
I was browsing through Sennheiser and was fiddling with IE 80 box, a salesman suddenly approached and told me that he could ask his manager to give me discount on IE80 (seems like sales are not good for Sennheiser in Dubai, everybody is after other trashy cans like Beats). Even though they weren't giving it for any discounts I would have bought IE 80 for 1499 Dhs.
Anyway after few moments the salesman came and told me that he could give me IE 80 and Amperior for 1499 Dhs.
Hmm, one bullet two birds LOL, I couldn't stop laughing in my mind on how ignorant was the salesman in selling these cans to me.
While parting he told me to tell friends who might be interested in buying Sennheiser (good marketing)
they have an amperior (the last one for sale) half price-that is pretty good but useless for me that already have a pair of momentum
I asked and told that a "friend" got both for just the price of ie80
ie80 cost 1499 (1500) and no way that they give me both the senny for the same price
If anyone is interested in getting one, there is a company selling them in Dubai, and at only 300 for the 8gb model it's a steal (they only have black left).
You can call this number and ask to speak to Miss Jackline...04 355 4222
Highly, highly, highly recommended
I still have to give a listen to that!
just received this email: MMAASMEDIA on Wednesday, April 30th 2014, starting at 18:00 till 21:00Wednesday evening from 6 o clock demo session
nice shop in jlt discovered just walking along the lake
they got it in DubaiAudio, yet without EH tubes so it will be with less treble and bass detail, more mellow and musical and tube like, i hate the stock tubes lol! EH tubes FTW ;3
tell me about it!! haha they are happy with beats and don't know anything about amp/dacs , yet don't blame them, coming from blackberry and iphone ear buds any one would be happy with these.
their off the hook if their only ignorant about the audiophile gear which is fine, but we have a problem if their ignorant and stubborn, enjoy your beats but for god sake don`t even make the argument that they are the best headphones out there, just cuz your dum enough to pay for Dr dre beats advertisement campaigns doesn`t make the headphones worth every penny. lool
are you kidding me, my Fiio x3 is on the way, should`ve posted t his like one week ago, would`ve bought it from you, but anyway, how does it sound ?? what are you pairing it with and why are you selling it?
