Buying from eBay - safe?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I spotted a Vsonic RE4 Pro with free international shipping for 55 USD:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Vsonic-R04pro-Updated-Version-Inner-Ear-Earphones-/280949834281?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item4169ea4229

 

It's from Hong Kong, and I wonder if there are fake RE4s out there.

In fact, consider this question more general, about all IEMs on eBay.

 

The problem is I'm from Israel and so many stores want some 40 dollars for international shipping, which is crazy.

There aren't any fake Vsonic products that I know of, I haven't seen any pop up ever here yet.

You will be fine. smile.gif

Trust Uncle H20.

Can I trust Uncle H20 to recommend me a pair of earphones up to 75 USD?

There are so many reviews and models and whatever, and I can't choose.

 

I'll be using it to listen to music on my iPhone, and when I watch movies and TV shows at home (also on iPhone, perhaps).

 

I recently sold an ATH M50. Liked the sound, hated the "ergonomics". Can't stand over-ear phones anymore.

I did scroll through that thread quite a bit, but I can't decide. RE-Zero, RE-0,  GR06 vs. GR04... Blergh.

Let's add Sunrise Xcited to the mix. They're 75 USD, GR04 is 50 USD, GR06 - 60 USD.

Can't. Bloody. Choose. 

I do love neutral sound though, and I hear the Xcited has it, but is it overall worth the extra 25 USD? Dunno.

That xcited is piece of crap. Terrible sharp highs and dreadful build quality. Xcape impressive edition was much better.
But best bang for buck is definetly sony mh1c. They sound better than any iem you written.

The problem is though, the MH1c is far far from neutral as the OP said he likes

No, I don't want to start looking for tips.

 

What do you think about the Woodees IESW101V?

 

Let's make it up to 85 USD. :)

 

I want really good earphones. I had an ATH M50, I just wanting something that's not much worse but is in-ear.

Audio technica ckn50 or ckm500 is better than m50.
