For sale is my Ortofon e-Q7. This has long stood in the front of the line as the most balanced earphone I've ever used. I have owned and held onto it for so long because it was both very good and exceptionally balanced.
Why sell then?
I kept this earphone because it represents the best "every man" IEM on the market. It doesn't need an amp. It doesn't need an exceptional source device. It just sound great and offers a lot of qualities. I have used it quite a lot because I could forgo the need for EQing. My new desktop PC offers some EQing power and some allowance to use products that are more colored by default but still fit my preference better. In this case it's the CK100 that I am transitioning to as my mainstay. While I would suggest to any person out there to get the e-Q7 over basically anything else on the market, it isn't my personal favorite. I only like to keep what I use most, and the e-Q7 isn't seeing enough active use lately. Others like yourself will get more play time out of it.
You are getting what's shown in the photos. This is the Ortofon e-Q7 IEM as well as the extra tips, a couple spare filters (plus brand new filters in the IEMs with zero use), and all the packaging which includes the very nice ornamental case and small carrying case. Everything is in like new condition with no wear and tear. This is as close to a 10/10 product as you can get without the new product price tag.
I have cleaned everything with isopropyl alcohol. The unit is wiped down, and the cables are wiped down. I do this with everything I sell. It is cleaned and then packaged.
I will ship anywhere in the world. I typically ship USPS as they are the most cost effective as well as most often the quickest. Within the US, shipping with be $12. This includes insurance and delivery confirmation. Anywhere else in the world it will likely be around $30 insured via Priority International. Cheaper options are available. Feel free to check rates at the USPS website (my zipcode 56001). Worldwide, I do prefer to ship via Express as it does offer more tracking and faster delivery. However there is a price premium. I will opt for Priority International and insure for the sold value unless otherwise specified.
I will note that some locations do not have insurance. USPS can not insure to some countries who are unwilling to support the process. It's rare, but I have shipped to a location that could not be insured before. If I can't insure, I will tell you.
I attempt to ship same day if possible. It is not always the case. I work 6 days a week and can have difficulty creating a time to drop a package off during post office business hours. Most likely it will be during my work lunch break the following day. Worst case would be the end of week on Saturday.
The price is $230 + sh.
I am not looking for best offers. I am not looking for trades. I will simply say no to either. If you want to bother, go ahead. I'll still say no to any lower offers or trades.
The price does not include shipping charges nor any potential customs charges. Shipping fees will depend on where you live as well as what shipping method is used. Customs fees vary greatly depending on country. Know your customs operations to know if you will be charged and for how much.
As for shipping fees. The above values for shipping is just a close approximation. I will ask for the price + sh rate upon purchase. I typically charge an approximate amount, and I will refund the difference if it's more than a couple dollars. I have the secondary option of getting an exact amount, but shipping will be delayed some.
