My calculations are off.

For a large 10 person group buy.

weight of ten earphones with Amazon packaging would be about 4540 g (each one is 454 g)

 

From the Tenso fee calculator this comes out to 9780 yen or about $101.00. When one adds on domestic shipping of about $5.50 per buyer for priority mail, we are already in the realm of $15-16 per person for mailing charges. Really not much of a savings.

 

Three people is 4180 g or about 4180 yen, about $42.90 per order or $14.30 per person. Again, one adds on the cost of domestic mailing and the cost becomes pretty much the same as if ordered directly.

 

The only benefit of a group buy is the savings in the hassle of using Tenso.

 

Tenso is a good service and very fast, but you pay a price for it.

Thanks for that!

 

Just asked him what he's thinking trying to sell them used for $75 when they are $44.90 on Amazon.co.jp... rolleyes.gif

 

No wonder he's had almost no interest whatsoever lol

Yeah, thought the same thing. Even with tenso mailing charges they are still cheaper new.

Yeah, no idea how he worked out the price lol

 

Btw, it sounds to me like the DX200 Carbo Tenore would be a good (cheaper) alternative to the CKN70s, and with a slightly bigger driver... 5.8 as opposed to 5.7 on the CKNs.

Any idea if there's anything fishy about my pair?

 

Would appreciate some feedbacks from owners here. Thanks in advance.confused_face_2.gif

Hi, friendly bump. Could someone kindly help me out with this. Thanks in advance.

Don't we have that with two of the drivers in the FXZ series?

I'm in the UK and I'd be down for a group buy with a few others for the Zero Audio Carbo Basso's. Any other UK / European guys down?
