Wouldn't want to pay $180 though. Especially when it normally sells for $100-120.

I bought it for $110 + a bit of shipping cost, UPS screwed me over and I had to pay upwards of $70 in "brokerage fees" to them; hence $180 (this is excluding shipping costs like my other estimations ofc).

Well true. My first pair was $90 back in the day. Kinda hard to pay more once you paid a certain amount. Like buying my two D7Ks for just under $600. I see them for $800, and I'm like "no way", even when that's like a normal price.

Know what you mean. I have been shipping to India and each time it costs in excess of $ 120. I just console myself with the thought that I ship the equipment in bulk. More importantly, these things are just not available here. To give you some context, the Beats Pro costs about $400 (22,000 in local currency terms). You can buy them legally in India for 38,000 local currencyangry_face.gif

A little late here, but my headphone journey so far.

 

Pre-head-fi:

 

Sennheiser HD 280 pro = 110 Euro

 

Post Head-fi:

 

First setup:

 

iPod +E17 + Sennheiser IE80 = 400 Euro (not including iPod)

 

Sold those off and got my second and current setup:

 

ODAC + M-stage + HE-400 = 730 Euro

 

So total 1240 euros, not too bad

post #9973 of 20005

Ultrasone Pro 550 - $140

Xonar DG - $30

Ultrasone Pro 900 - $400

FiiO E10 - $60

FiiO E07K - $60

Hifiman HE-400 - $410

Panasonic HTF600 - $30

Modi/Magni Stack - $200

 

Total: $1330 over a year in a half.

 

Not so bad.

Will the Modi/Magni Stack work fine in Thailand with a plug adapter (ac/dc adapter)? My bro who lives in USA is coming to Thailand next month and I am asking him to buy one for me. I will be using it with the he-400 and mac book pro, it is a nice combo?

All answer appreciated.
