Wow how does shipping to France be cheaper than shipping to Canada?? Including shipping I paid around 235$

 

Hard to believe that they are not overcharging on shipping...

Hi guys!  I couldn't help noticing the shipping fees that are being quoted here, so I just thought I'd jump in to say that I'm a proud member of the Aurisonics family and am the sole distributor for Aurisonics in Singapore.  If anyone's in the Asia Pacific region and wants a set, I'll be able to work out decent shipping rates for you. 

 

Thanks!

From Matt:

"I understand the concern about the international shipping rates... unfortunately, this is the only method of shipping internationally that we have available since we normally only ship in the United States."

I'm glad they have forward mids. Very important for mixing (music production) as it will be their main use here.

Don't get mad @ Springtree or Arisonics if shipping from the U.S. to other countries can be expensive. Get mad at the postal service and other parcel carriers. I've had people from around the world wanting to buy items I had up for sale, and they wanted a certain type of insurance along with shipped a certain way. Well I'm sorry, but that gets expensive from the U.S. I think that's why many head-fi members who sell in the classifieds section say "shipping in the USA" only. These two companies are not trying to get over on you on shipping. Are you serious? As much personal time as I've heard they've spent with individual head-fi members (including myself) to make sure their products are right for you, stop the the madness.

 

If you live outside of the USA and can't afford the shipping, then maybe you don't need the product unless you yourself can find a cheaper way to ship to you without the burden of a missing product being put on the company. I'm just saying. I've ordered items from China that I really wanted and shipping was ridiculous. But in the end I had to decide how badly I wanted the item. Those particular items I really wanted.

I wanted to address some concerns about shipping rates as I have noticed several posts as of late regarding our international shipping rates.

 

First, we normally do not ship internationally. I have been providing the international purchasing option for the Aurisonics ASG-1's because Aurisonics would like to get these in the hands of as many people as possible.

 

I am not able to discuss price on this board as it is against the manufacturer agreement that we have with Aurisonics (known as MAP or minimum advertised price policy).  We did have an introductory offer available (as these are brand new) and are continuing to heavily discount these through the end of the month.  We still will offer a discount on these if you call or email us for a quote. Please note that we have offered a very generous original discount on these earphones as the MAP price on them is $249. Again, call or email us for a price and we are able to offer our discount.

 

We have been shipping by USPS for international shipments as it is our only method of shipping internationally at this time. I can assure you that we are not collecting extra money in the shipping cost as we are quoting directly from our rates that we receive. I'll be glad to discuss any issues you may have directly by email or phone. 

 

For US purchases, we often times are able to quote with "free shipping" which isn't actually free... it's just built into our cost of the product.  We are providing "free shipping" as an added bonus.

 

If you have any concerns at all, please email or call us and we will be glad to help in any way we can. Springtree is committed to providing the best service possible and we strongly believe in and stand behind Aurisonics products. We are authorized dealers of all of the product lines we carry including Shure, JBL, Audio-Technica, and many other major lines as we sell pro audio, pro lighting, staging/truss, video and more. We can provide the full manufacturer's warranty on all of the products that we sell. Our staff are active in the industry, love talking gear and are not on commission so we are committed to finding the best solution for your application and budget... even if that means selling a much cheaper solution than what you were originally looking for. We will outright tell you, "that's not what you want!" if the customer is looking at a product that's not right for their needs. In the case of the Aurisonics, I've discussed with several Head-Fi members over the phone the sound signature to let them know exactly what they'll be getting so we know it is the right product for you. We can almost always offer a better price than what we are allowed to advertise on our site because of MAP agreements with the manufacturers... just call or email us and we'll give you our discount.

The thing is that when shipping is 1/3 the price of earphones itself you are starting to think if it really worth it :) As for me, I don't need any insurance, tracking number etc... Just priority mail shipping for 13.95$ as I remember.

Too risky from the US, believe me.

I certainly don't recommend anyone to ship overseas without adding insurance and some kind of delivery confirmation/registration.

When a package gets lost or damage, and it does happen in real life, then remember the responsibility is always the on the seller's side, not the buyer!

Guys this is kind of silly, people getting all fussy over shipping. If you don't have the money, or don't want it badly enough, don't buy it. As someone already posted a page or two back, they are only charging standard rates from USPS. Nobody can complain about that. They are already giving us an INSANE deal on what are obviously some of, if not THE, top universals on the market. Anyone here who is complaining about shipping...I'm sorry, its just absurdly foolish and I almost feel embarrassed when I think about how great Matt and Dale have been in dealing with us.

Bottom line: buy the phones or don't, either way quit WHINING.

Ericp may have said it the harsh way, but he's right. People like Matt are willing to go outside their usual "no shipping outside the US" policy as a favor for a few individuals here. So I don't think it's very correct to ask for more. bigsmile_face.gif

 

$50+ for USPS is certainly expensive but it does come with tracking and an insurance, and is relatively fast to most countries.

 

And just for information, price is not proportional to the distance, usually everything not domestic is international, period. wink.gif

Continental is sometimes cheaper than transcontinental (it is the case within the EU), but this is not a rule.

 

I have used US Priority mail a few times to have US stuff shipped to France, and I can say I don't ever want to do that again (except for 15-20$ orders). Reasons: lonnnnnnnnnnng delivery times (for most countries it's 10-15 days, for some like France or Canada it can take up to 4 weeks...), no tracking, no serious insurance (usually not enough to cover expensive stuff), and if anything goes wrong, you'll be dependant on the good will (or not) of the seller for a replacement.

Not really something I'm willing to do for anything above $150...frown.gif

It costs $13.95 to ship a small package (up to 1 pound) via USPS. Heavier stuff like the ASG-1 packaging gets expensive quickly. You also don't want to end up with a missing product, so it would be in your best interest to get it insured. You should go to the UPS or FEDEX website for a quote to your country, then you'll know what expensive shipping is.
