[HELP!!!] Orpheus, Ebay and a man's foolishness

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 

One man's foolishness has no bottom limit... I saw a pair of Orpheus on Ebay and immediately bid on that for the sake of 'participating'... Turns out I am the highest bidder and I have two days left...

 

$5100 is a bargain for a pair of HE90 for those who can afford, however... So please feel free to bid!

You cannot be serious... How did you get yourself in this situation

The seller's probably selling them at that price, because it's rumoured Sennheiser are coming out with new Electrostatic headphones, to which one is supposed to be even better than the HE-90.

Most likely a scam.

 

1. Seller has no history

 

2. Price is unrealistically low. Plus first bid was like $120 and then jumped to several thousand?

 

3. Item is listed as being in Australia, ships from Australia, payment in AUD, but the seller is listed as being in the US.

 

4. Those pictures look awfully familiar. I think they've been posted elsewhere in public before. Most likely the seller is using them without consent.

LOL I bidded on these earlier today but once I saw the trade rating I took my bid off. There also seems to be no photo of the serial. But yeah. Pictures could be from the internet somewhere else. I posted it in the Stax thread.

 

You can retract ebay bids as long as you do it before it hits the 12 hour remaining mark. Just a tip, don't bid on things unless you're serious about buying it because a bid means you're agreeing to a contract agreement of the intention of buying the item.

Which is not going to happen anytime soon.
