Sorry, I didn't realize that Amazon doesn't have International Shipping.

We're sorry to hear some of you have been caught out buying EPH100 from other sellers who havent offered to replace them when theyre faulty or honoured any warranty. This is unfortunately the risk though of not buying from a trusted and authorised seller.

 

Just as a reminder - Audio Affair is the ONLY authorised UK retailer for the Yamaha EPH100. We became the exclusive UK retailer in partnership with Yamaha EU in 2013, so we are only retailer in the UK to be able to offer a full 2 year warranty and honour this warranty. If you buy your EPH100 from us and they become faulty, we will arrange repair. In some cases where repair isnt possible (providing there isnt misuse), we have even replaced them within the 2 year warranty for a brand new set. We care deeply about customer service so you can trust with us that you are getting a genuine pair of EPH100 (supplied directly to us by Yamaha EU) and that a full 2 year warranty is included.

 

Why risk buying from a non-reputable seller that could be selling fakes (as some of you have cleverly pointed out on here the differences), and when they are unable to provide any sort of warranty?

 

In reply to those of you that have had difficulty buying internationally, we can ship Yamaha EPH100 worldwide (shipping options are in the basket http://goo.gl/c5bKQM) and we honour the 2 year warranty for all customers - if they go faulty, all you need to cover is the cost to ship them back to us.

 

Happy listening - EPH100 are still our favourite IEMs :)

1) I've had the EPH-100 for three years and still stay strong - I take care of all my earphones with great care and since I have collection of earphones, I switch my earphones to another in every each day. 

 

2) They're not good for work-out because the speaker/driver is prone to sweat so the moisture will clog the speaker and causes it to die out, like 90% reduction in volume. It'll recover once you blow the speaker with your mouth. Unless if you're doing weight-lifting, that's fine but not for cardio-workout or if you sweat alot. 

 

3) I've had the earphone gave out four times and the speaker came back alive on its own. It happens if I listen to 3-4 hours of listening and one of the speaker, particularly left side, dies out. Then I magnetize it with the other speaker for a minute and it started working fine. Also, when I left the speaker sit for an hour, the speaker also came back alive. I don't know what theory is behind this case but I'm sure the speaker needs a break.

 

4) If you wanna pull-out-tug the EPH-100 I, as an earphone aficionado, cannot recommend doing that on earphone above $50. I'd do it on Philips SHE3590 though. Unless if you have a lifetime supply of EPH-100, you can do it.

Try email the seller and see how the package look like. Judging from the 2nd and 3rd pic, it is a potential fake - look how mushy the eartip is. The real one is supposed to be firm

^Agreed on the mushy tips

 

It's really hard to tell the difference from just looking at a couple of photos, especially without comparison with real ones or a hands on.

I'll probably just get it and then return it if its fake, any clue on telling the difference between real and fakes?

Here is: http://konovalof.ru/yamaha-eph-100-original-vs-fake/

 

It is written in Russian so I believe the right is the fake while the left is real one. Look how the fake package has weak etching of Japanese recycling symbol (picture 5).
