It was $10 just from Massachusetts to Michigan from Priority Mail with Insurance for the ASG-1 I sold.  USPS really get's expensive once you add insurance, it was 40% of the shipping cost.

Yeah...due to shipping price, unless someone from the US can help us out, then I won't be interested

Again agreed.

 

That said:
PFE 112's insured from UK to AUSTRALIA = £10 

If I insured up to £500 = £15

 

Thus why $50 is a little outrageous for shipping charges.

I understand the principal of having them as widespread as available.

But how can you "widen" your spread of knowledge in the product, when you are offering $50 shipping outside the US.

 

Look this isn't a rant.

But please don't take "international love" by chris brown and say that's "international" when the guy sings about different states in the US....

every post office is different (i get random quotes all the time), some people will help you find the cheapest yet safest way to ship an item, others will just not care and give you a standardized method of shipping (usually the expensive ones) for the peace of mind. I guess the quote that Matt/Dale got was something similar to standardized which is normal. Anyhow, it is possible to ship it for slightly cheaper but shipping internationally was already a Plus for oversea users so be thankful. I was just a bit shocked that shipping to France was cheaper than shipping to Canada.

 

I have a feeling there will be a very long relationship with Aurisonics in the future (upgrades, dualsbiggrin.gif) so its all good.

 

To Matt or Dale - Please consider having customizable faceplates for the ASG-1. (more designs, colours options, so users can just screw/unscrew it on their own without sending it back Aurisonics) Oh my god, i can dream changing the faceplates everyday haha.

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.

Matt is sick for the day so I ended up ordering with Jade. Very nice dude. Got the headfi discount. I suggest guys jump on if they want to get a pair as the prices will go up.

 

So I asked to see if these can be upgraded to a dual driver set up. There is not real word on if these can incorporate a 2nd driver. He seems to think it will be a new housing all together a new design. The upgrade ability would be more along the line of cords and shell designs more so than actual driver placement But the outer shell can be taken out for a different add on so it will be interesting to see if these can be upgraded in the future.. Next week they will send out my ASG-1.

 

@eric. I was considering getting the a new Sony XBA 3 or 4 but your post got my interest with these instead. I think I made the better buy. Very excited to get my hands on these.

If memory serves, Dale already mentioned that the AS-2/ASG-2 should have faceplates and other customizations (someone please verify)

Spot on mate. I believe you are talking about my earlier post that standard USPS charges are being used by SpringTree.

 

 

I think no one with good sense should contemplate cheaper delivery without tracking/insurance unless they want to gamble against $199 dollars or so.

 

Presently the product is heavily discounted around 40% off RRP - making delivery free in a way.

 

My advice would be if you are seriously interested in these phones & can afford to buy them jump  on now. It's a no brainer.

 

It will be a lot wiser to do so sooner than later when the discount has gone & you will still have to pay the same international delivery rate on top.

 

 

Worst case scenario $299+$52+Customs Tax = Extra BIG Ouch !

 

 

In my opinion this moaning about US delivery rates has nothing to do with Aurisonics or Springtree & we should move back to the subject of thread..  .

Or if you weren't going to buy them in the first place, but due to the "discount" it came to your attention -> me

But after finding out about the shipping charge, you seem to kindly decline -> me

 

Thus the earphones not going on youtube channel, gaining views and popularity, 2 website, nor impressions on head-fi

Not bragging, but that's just the hard truth :)

post #761 of 2761

RE: all the comments about shipping, I totally agree with Gilly87. 

 

I hold Matt/Springtree and Dale/Aurisonics in the highest regard, and, as a Head-Fi member, I feel that they've fostered an extremely positive relationship with the Head-Fi community, including superb responsiveness, kindness, and generosity.

 

The shipping issue seems petty to me (My stance would be exactly the same if I didn't live in the United States).

 

Just think about the performance/price ratio they're offering with the ASG-1, even with international shipping.  I consider us very fortunate.

 

I'd like to express my thanks to Matt & Springtree and Dale & Aurisonics.

No worries friend. They are possibly not for you.

too forward mids ;)

Thus me holding out on these from his PM he sent me

They weren't for him, and from how he described them to me, probably not for me either.
