Over thinking it perhaps. It's just a thing to him.

Maybe I'm not reading it correctly, but looked through 5 pages on TAOBAO and lowest I saw was 1980RMB, and the majority priced at 2999RMB?
It's money to him. A proliferation of unopened goods going much cheaper than retail, all of a sudden, with no sales tax. It could be legit, sure - but raises flags too.
Maybe it's like mine and the left speaker has a lot "tearing/scratching" on certain frequencies as soon as you go above 50% vol on my cowon.
Pi$*es me off! Only thing I hate about these!!
I am going to send a furious email to UE. I had the same issue with some UE700s too! Just saying, in hindsight if I had known of these issues -> i wouldnt have bought them. It's just that they are brilliant (if you exclude that problem). The catch is the problem is very bad. A bit like a drug, you know theres aspects that are bad, but it keeps you coming! hahahaha,
I have a similar question. I found a pair of UE 900's for 1800 RMB or about 300 USD in a pretty reputable audio shop in China. My cousin bought all his audio gear there, including a $500 set of headphones with no problems so that place has some credibility to me. The box of the UE 900's is all in Chinese and I'm not sure about warranty. Do you guys think I should take it? Is there any chance they could be fake?
