lmao just classical ;). I hate lowballers as well. I don't mind making some compromises in price but don't try to bust my balls on it lol.

Sound Byte: Low Ball Loser Larry (LBLL)

Awhile back I posted some items up for sale on Head-Fi's FS boards. Generally speaking, my experience with the FS forums on here have been mostly positive and I've pretty much sold almost everything I've thrown up for grabs save a couple of items. In an attempt to try and move these items I decided to give another sites FS boards that's local to my city a try and see if maybe I could run across someone with some interest. I threw up a fresh set of postings and sat back and waited. The ignorance that would later ensue would be far from amusing to say the least. The following conversation is only loosely quoted and the name of the guilty has been changed in an attempt to spare his family any ridicule.

LBLL: I'm interested in the earbuds you have for sale. Are they still available and can you send me some more pics?
DF: Yeah they're still available and I have a couple of extra pics available (posts pics in PM)
LBLL: These things are brand new and never opened?
DF: ?!??! How can they never have been opened if the IEM's are sitting in a picture outside of an open box? They've been opened and have maybe 60 hrs of use on them.
LBLL: Well their not worth that much if their used. I'll give you 125 plus shipping.
DF: That's barely half of what I'm asking. Not interested.
LBLL: Listen bud, you're probably a nice enough kid so let me fill you in on something. Once earbuds have been used they pretty much lose most of their value so you're not going to get that price for them.
DF: Oh well, guess I'll just have to keep them then. Bye.
LBLL: Hey kid, don't be a stubborn ass@#$% and hear me out. These are just earbuds who the hell spends 200 plus dollars on earbuds? You'll never get that much for them.

By that point I was already all "oh no he di'int"

LBLL: Whoa, you're 40 and you really think you can sell a pair of fancy looking used earbuds for $235? You're either one big rich idiot who doesn't know what to do with his money or just an idiot.
DF: (face palm) You know something, I've been little more then mildly amused since this conversation started and now I'm far from amused....

At the end of this, I was all "OHHHH SNAP" *snaps fingers 3 times* (I really did too, to the confusion of my roommates)

LBLL: Listen here old man, unlike yours, my generation isn't fooled by fancy packaging. Earbuds are earbuds and fancy packaging doesn't make them worth that much money. You're either a scammer or that dumb.
DF: Unlike your generation my generation knows the difference between an IEM and an earbud. Unlike your generation my generation knows what the term hi-fi really means and we don't waste our time with 99 cent Apple earbuds or spend X amount of money on bright red plastic rapper cans. Unlike your generation my generation knows how to use the words their and they're in a sentence. Unlike your generation my generation knows better then to run around shooting foul mouthed superlatives at people. Oh I'm sorry, I used a big complicated sounding word in my last sentence. Google is your friend, feel free to enter superlative in the search engine and you're sure to get it's definition. While you're at it I suggest you also look up the words ignoramus, buffon, and simpleton. This conversation is at an end now get lost.

I've since taken down the posting and have decided to not use those FS boards again and have since blocked any kind of email from that site to my gmail account.

And thus, I am rewarded with a gentlemanly verbal beat down. *golf clap*

I'm also very amused that you use a gif, an anime gif of all things. It's always amuse me since I thought that anime is a hard nut to crack for most people.

Sounds like a veritable annoying audio Legion of Doom!

 

I had a scary thought myself, an idea for a new project: the 2013 Customs Calendar. The idea would involve living with a new pair of customs and writing up extensive impressions every month.

 

January - Heir 8.A

February - JH Audio JH16Pro

March - FitEar MH335DW

April - Canal Works CW-L05QD

May - Spiral Ears SE5-Way Reference

June - Rooth LS8

July - Rooth LS8+

August - Hidition NT6-Pro 

September - Unique Melody PP6 

October - Ultimate Ears PRM

November - Stax SR-002 w/ custom tips

December - Mystery Bespoke 10-Driver CIEM

 

Yeah, that's insane. But it's a fun thought.

I just imagined you walking into an audiologist's office saying you want twelve pairs of ear impressions. wink.gif

"Yes, I work for a technology publication. I'll be reviewing several models."

 

Or something along those lines. A little less awkward than "I'm an obsessive ear monitor collector."

Unless you're planning on getting the whole run of 'em at once, you should probably get a couple impressions at a time. The impressions deform after a few months.
