Hmmm, where can I order stock tips for the EPH-100?
(or is anybody willing to sell lol)

Music is more than those.

I meant the music as you listen to it is analogue signals down the wire, unless I'm getting confused.

can somebody post their Rockbox EQ settings? taming that high shelf is quite tricky with these.

So guys, here we go again. On my second pair of EPH100s, the right driver has broken, again. Its a lot quieter than the left and has some audible problems. I'm really disappointed, as I really like these headphones. Worse thing is, I'm probably going to end up getting a third replacement pair.

Wow, thats some seriously bad luck. Where are you getting them from??

 

I assume AudioAffair.co.uk?

 

I bought 1 pair and had them for over 8 months without any issues, especially considering I wasn't exactly gentle with them lol

Yeah I got them from Audio Affair and I have returned them to get yet another replacement as I like them so much.

Third time lucky I guess. ;)

I'm wondering the same thing about Ebay and fake Yamaha earphones.

 

I found some EPH-100 at $129, which is a good price considering they cost around 135 euros in Europe ($185).

 

Has anyone ordered from Ebay? Should I risk it? Thanks!

Only if he or she is a reckonized dealer, In Europe official Price is 140 Euro, but some sell them at 129 Euro, I did buy in the UK with Audio Affair 1,5 year ago at 99 Pounds.wich was inclusive posting 125 Euro, at that time they weren´t even avaiable in Germany.

Hi Ghisi--

I wouldn't risk it. I bought some from an eBay seller, and we're fairly certain the ear tips were fake, even though the iems were real. It is impossible (I believe) to get the stock tips from anywhere, so I don't think it's worth the risk.

If you pm me the seller's name, I'll confirm if it's the same who sent me (seemingly) fake tips. I don't want to put the seller on blast here because I can't confirm they were "fake."

If you can I would get them from Audio Affair for £99. A good price, and decent service if you're unfortunate enough for them to break.

+1

Do not take any risks.

Especially with a product that has been discontinued.

Thanks for your input guys. I might actually wait until I go to Japan in the Spring.

However, I must say that those 5 minutes were enough to leave me feeling VERY impressed. I am genuinely surprised at quite how much bass these things kick out... They make the FXT90 and GR07 appear positively bass light! It's too soon to talk about bass quality - will cover that after some burn-in. The other major thing that has struck me is the imaging, soundstage and separation. To say that these phones sound immersive and 3D is a blatant understatement.

 

It's too soon to make proper judgments, so I'm holding back from making bold or rash statements... but this is hard, as right now I'm feeling pretty wowed.  The only other thing I'll say, is that these are VERY comfortable (as comfortable as the GR07) and exhibit build quality of a very high standard.

 

Lets just say that I have no doubts as to these being keepers.

 

 

So, that was 719 days ago, and I see that you no longer have it. What happened? Thanks!

So have you received your new pair from Amazon and made a comparison? My pair is exactly like your "fake" one and I can totally understand your suspicions, although sound wise I cannot tell if it's a fake one or not.
