Its the italian amazon. http://www.amazon.it/Sennheiser-Amperior-Microcuffia-Silver-Argento/dp/B009QV14MC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357640647&sr=8-1

They have them for 214euro's which is £175. Just have to add 7euro for standard delivery, and an extra £5 bank charge for paying in euros. Worth it imo.

Thanks, i just snagged a bargain!
They came to £184 inc postage and bank charge. That represents a 29% discount so I'm delighted! smily_headphones1.gif

Big thanks to all the active forum members who take the time to express their views and make the effort to discuss things in a civilised manner.

I can't wait to get my hands on these now!

The Amperior is the most exciting sounding portable. Shame i sold them to try other headphones.

Thinking to rebuy it...

post #80 of 772

So i got these a couple hours ago and i like them for the most part. I got them off Amazon for $200. The build seems pretty good but the way the cups slide up and down worries me a bit and the female cable is pretty thin. 

 

Its very comfortable for sure and the velour earpads are great for me since I live in Hawaii and its always humid.

 

On to the sound i quite like these except for one thing, the treble. The treble is very sibilant and harsh to my ears. Everything else is great though. If the treble wasnt so sibilant then i'd say these are the best sounding headphones i ever owned (ATH-m50, monster turbines, Aviators, m80s). Would burn in help? I think it wouldnt since these are refurbished but im going to try anyway.

post #81 of 772

They do burn in, but don't expect them to turn smooth.  They'll always be a bit harsh and just a tad sibilant.  Still find em to be pretty amazing for most genres. 

post #82 of 772

Well i burnt these in for around 15 hours and it's not as sibilant as before but it's still the most sibilant headphone that ive owned (except the image s4s). 

 

Still going to give these a shot though since i  really dont feel like sending these back to amazon and then picking out yet another headphone. Been trying to find the perfect headphones for years now.

 

Other than the sibilance issue sound is great! Goes well with everything i throw at it and has a bigger soundstage than i expected.

 

Also love the look of these (silver). Even more so than the vmoda m80s and such.

For the Amperior bought from Amazon.it: do they come with International Warranty? What service will repair them? (Amazon?) What does it say in the papers.

If you buy them refurbished from an authorized dealer then they carry a 90 day warranty. If you buy them new from an authorized dealer then it'll have the 2 year warranty

The headphones are new from Amazon, not refurbished, not from a client that sells them, The headphones are sold by Amazon. I want to know, from the ones that bought from Amazon(especially Italy) if Amazon is an authorized dealer because the service in my country won't repair them if they don't come with International Warranty. They will tell me to send them back to Amazon for repair.

Mine arrived yesterday packaged with the Amazon UK return address (rather than Italy) so that's ideal.

Its full 2 year international warranty, the paperwork refers you to Sennheiser website for current warranty details -

Small question are there any good international online retailers beside Amazon that sell the Amperior. My Hd25 just broke so need a replacement:) However locally they are only being sold through the Apply store whiich I do not want to support:)

Nice review, bro. and I just checked out one of your clips on youtube, you rock dude!!

post #89 of 772
I was curious so picked up a pair of these yesterday. Wow, they are detailed and fast phones. Quite enjoyable but my natural preference is for warm sound, ala Sony Mdr. Perhaps the momentums would be more my speed? I was also impressed by the amount of isolation they provided.

I'm selling mine for £180 if any fellow Londoners are interested. See here. If there is no interest I'll just return them to the shop in the next few days (and pay restocking)

Has anyone tried a portable amp on the AMPERIOR?   I'm really curious to know if it would add anything worthwhile. Thanks :)
