I first contacted official AKG customer service part administrator marlon.gonzalez@harman.com which, he told me to contact their Australian distributor bkirby@audioproducts.com.au (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 spares@audioproducts.com.au 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...

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...

yup crazy price, b-stock k712 pro with gel pads are going for 300ish usd on amazon, better look on ebay, those are probably made in china anyway, and there is always some chinese seller with some "stock" from the factory

Honestly, you should either try asking their price for AKG K712 without pads price or get a new pair of K712 for $350 and take out the pads on it and put it on your Annie. Then sell ur K712 with Annie pads. IMO. Just saying thought
