Audiophiles in Dubai? - Page 10

post #136 of 144
Good day guys,

Just wanted to share my latest investment.

Just received my set of JVC Fxz200 in ears. Wow, what a stunning set of buds. They sound absolutely phenomenal out of the box, but, if they're anything like my previous JVC FX1X buds, after around 50 hours of burn in, they should sound even better.

I do some altcoin mining (dogecoin) on my pc (with an R9 270X and i5-4570 if anyone is curious), and finally had enough coins to trade for a few Amazon gift cards. So these buds didn't really cost me anything lol (took me 4 months to get all 360k coins :-D ). $195 for them incl shipping to the States from Japan, and Dhs. 43 to have Aramex deliver them to me. Great value, couldn't be happier.

you could ship them directly to UAE man :P , shipping them twice will cost more, and will make you wait

 

when they ship to UAE just give them po box and some address, empost or EMS will take care of the rest, all what you could have done is calling central ems or central empost and track with them ^^ 

do this next time XD i did the same mistake before no worries, was only "aramex" kind of guy. 

also gratz on the new iem ^^

Actually, when I put in my address on the Amazon site, it said it couldn't send it to here, so had to use my Aramex address. I guess it's because it comes from Japan. I also couldn't get it directly from Amazon Japan as my gift cards are only valid for Amazon.com

Can you please explain me the procedure?
Even by pm
I would like to re-buy grado and I found good price on amazon but as you said it doesn't ship to UAE..

Head to shopandship.com and open up an account. If I remember correctly it's around $45 to open the account. Once that's setup you will be given an address in New York. Then just use that address on Amazon.

Shipping rates are dhs43 for the first 0.5kg and dhs34 for each additional 0.5kg (per shipment)

Please be reminded though that some sellers (depending on their location) will add tax to the final cost of your item when shipping to a New York address. BTW, I am using shop and ship service too for many years now.

The tax usually isn't much, and is shown in the final price. But if you order something over the value of dhs1000 there's a 5% import tax along with a processing and documentation fee

Connect this PC to a ControlPC directly with Cat7 and press play! To add linear supply is easy just order PicoPSU 120 or XT-150 and add Keces DC-116 for $300!

If anyone is interested, I will be making some Objective2 Headphone Amplifiers, and will be selling them for AED600 each.

These will come fully enclosed in an aluminium case, 2 rechargeable batteries (it requires 2 9V batteries), and an AC adapter to charge the batteries.

Some options are available to make your amplifier unique

Black, red, blue, green, or silver case

Black, red, blue, green, or silver rear panel

Red, Blue, Green, silver or acrylic clear front panel

Black plastic, or black or silver aluminium volume control.

These amps are excellent, and blind tests have proven that users simply cannot tell the difference between the Objective2 and the $1000 Beta2 amplifier.

The Objective2 was created specifically to prove that a top quality amplifier can be made without having to use exotic, but gimmicky, materials used by big brands. It amplifies the signal without distorting or colouring the sound; it is completely transparent.

I would require 50% deposit when you choose to make an order. Please feel free to PM me.
