AKG K550 : store accept no return?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi! I did not know where to post this question, so anyway if it is not where it should I apologize. I recently bought a pair of K550 from avshop.ca. All went smooth, good service... but now that I would like to return them because of the fit being loose, it appears that they don't accept return on open headphones... Is that common? It is the first time that I can't return headphones...

Have you checked the returns policy for that store?

Not common.

 

But not surprised a Canadian electronics store has poor service when it comes to electronics. When I lived there, electronics were all over-priced and the policies on them were awful. I assume it's due to import tax/duties/customs pressure for massive cost them.

 

You'll probably just have to sell them.

 

Very best,

Well, it seems like you have 2 options. Sell the headphones or make a mod to adjust them to your head shape. 

 

(If everything else fails when it comes to returns)

I did, after I bought them... strange enough they say for hygienic reason they don't accept return on headphone. I wear my headphones on my head, not anywhere else...

^ Ear gunk, face oil and fragrances.

I think they had IEMs in mind with that policy, but they're happy to extend it to whatever other products they can include in their no return policy.

Well I guess I might have to sell them. I can't seem to have access to the For Sale thread, I can't add a new post...

Oh thanks for you help. But, I'm in Canada and I'm unaware that a law like this one exists here!
