OK.

 

Please remember to post clinical (not romantic) impressions when you get them.  I want to know if these are as good to your ears as they are to CashNotCredit's ears.

 

How much did you pay for them?

Well, judging by that long strain relief the Pro also doesn't have a detachable cable. Btw, I was looking at mistertao I saw that there is some sort of a review for the efi-82pro http://www.mistertao.com/taobao-products/taobao-item-5878482669.html in the description with quite a few pictures and of course a bad translation from Chinese to English

Will do Alberto.  

 

$61.95 which includes economy shipping.

So I am seeing that these new Pro versions have a revised TP4 driver. One site I was checking out was saying the driver is a TP4r.  the r for revision. This makes sense as the older EFi headphone specs seem to be 14hz-26Khz.  The Pro version has greater specs. 10hz-28Khz. So it seems the pro version is an actual revision of the one that Cash was reviewing..

Did you try to buy two units from the seller at a discounted price?

His pictures in the review were the MT version.....red cable, and he had Shure 840 pads on them in the pic!

I did and I got an automatic reply back declining it.  I also tried two more times buying one with a max offer of $58 and declined also.  I think they are set at the price offered which really doesn't seem so bad.  I have quite a few of the pricier portable cans out now and I'd like to see how these stack up to them.

Why would they have a best offer option at all...

I wouldn't go with EMS - I don't know what they do at mistertao or the post office but delivery time is pretty much the same as China Post air mail, which is a lot cheaper. Also, I did link that taobao sale just for the review in the description - there are other sellers with a way higher reputation or with a slightly lower price. The good thing is that mistertao has added Singapore Post option for the shipping, which is like FedEx compared to the slower China post coz I'm tired of all ebay sellers stating that they use EMS but even the ones from Hong Kong use the cheap China Post all the time. In reality with all the shipping costs and commission in mistertao the Somic efi-82pro will cost around 40-42 bucks with Chinese Air Mail and like 43-45 with Singapost and stuff from singapost usually comes within 2 weeks tops and the tracking is better. There is around 2-3 days wait though till mistertao receives the package and you need to check often your mistertao account when this happens, so you can make the second payment, which is the commission and the international shipping fees.

Where is this seller who sells (or trying to sell) 2 for the price of one? or at a discounted price?

Thanks for the reply.....can you link on of the sellers with a higher reputation.....who do you recommend?

Well, that's one with a higher rep than the previously mentioned and a lower price http://www.mistertao.com/taobao-products/taobao-item-15872375639.html . And that's one that has a very high rep and I've used it before http://www.mistertao.com/taobao-products/taobao-item-12877207610.html though I'm not very sure how much does it matter inside China as mistertao and not the taobao seller will be dispatching the package internationally.

You guys might want to cancel those orders if possible.

I messaged the seller who sold me the MTs to see if they can bring them back earlier today, and judging by how quickly they've responded in the past, they should reply by tomorrow.

Saves you $25 to buy Shure pads.

mistertao.com can't accept credit card payment until Jan 26....so kind of a dead end here!  "Down for Maintenance"
