Pretty much,

Theres a few things you'll find here at usual RRP like a pair of ATH-M50's which cost the exact same here,

But the only shops that sell half decent headphones and equipment love to jack up the price by literally hundreds of dollars above the RRP,

I saw a pair of AKG Q701's for example, Usually they'd cost around $250 for you guys, Well down here they go for anywhere upwards of $500

When the local retailers jack up the prices by that much, are they really doing themselves any favours? Especially in this day and age, wouldn't that just steer people to buy directly from the Internet and have the items shipped to their homes for a fraction of the cost?

One would think that,

Its not like we have much of a choice to shop anywhere else though, 85% of things sold on Amazon dont ship to Australia, and retailers here just plain suck, I tried explaining to the guy that he's asking for double what there worth, He just tried to sell me a pair of beats pro's instead

Thank god I'm moving back to Hong Kong towards the middle of the year

Beats! I'd rather pour glue in my ears and hang it up.

I bit the bullet and ended up buying them, Albiet at a heavily inflated price

They best ship it to me in a golden box considering how much I paid :cool:

Does that mean you won't be starting a "Beats Pro Appreciation Thread?" :p

 

In the end you made a much better choice. I hope you realize that your wallet has just entered "The Twilight Zone" and will be in a hopless death spiral. You'll be hitt'in the kick for some time to come.

Just be careful not to get too carried away and overplay the game of diminishing returns. Otherwise you may be moving to the Never Never.
