AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 216
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I first contacted official AKG customer service part administrator email@example.com which, he told me to contact their Australian distributor firstname.lastname@example.org (seems like his legit as his listed on AKG international distributor list http://www.akg.com/International+Representatives-1043.html).
And then he forwarded my message to email@example.com which he/she is responsible for sending me that ridiculous quote.
It seems like their details matches as they are from the same Australian distributor company (Audio Products Groups).
Though that still doesn't explain the outrageous price differences...
still, would avoid sending card infos, make them give you the bank account info/number, so you know to who and how much money you give
else you'll end up with a bunch of monthly subscriptions, dejavu
I really hope it was but then no they said its $156.75 including postage and GST.
I'll ask about the payment via bank transfer. And yes, it's very suspicious that they are telling me to give the credit card details without any reliable middleman.
There's always an option to get throwaway/gift credit cards though this will be my last resort.
That said I'm still not sure if it's worth buying it for the price or not...
