DT-250 for $27.80 ? - Page 4

post #46 of 75

My dt250's have been shipped and it says the package weight is 2lbs, fingers crossed.

Then this thing about how it was "stuck" in Amazon's purchase list. It's not like they charged you for it if it was not in stock.

 

I bet when someone drops their wallet you ask them for a finders fee :biggrin:

 

Good work - your comment is almost as annoying as amazon's actions! :rolleyes:


As I mentioned earlier, what annoys me is that they took 2 weeks to cancel it. They should have done it within a few days. And during those 2 weeks they changed the shipping status (after a week) from "we'll notify you when we have an estimated delivery date" to then actually providing an estimated delivery date. Wtf? At first I didn't expect to be getting them, but when they provided an estimated shipping date and left it at that for so long, it got my hopes unnecessarily up. And, some people are actually getting them - wow, what consistency! So it's just an irritating experience. I don't expect amazon to never make a pricing mistake, but I do expect them to correct them in a more timely manner (and maybe show a bit more consistency - ie we should ALL be getting them! :)

I tried to get them to offer me a 50% discount on the HD650 instead.  Didn't work :p

Can I pay you $20 to impersonate me?

The CS rep I spoke with offered a different solution, hopefully with the same end result.  We'll see if it works out.  Interested in impressions from those of you who have already received these.  Have bought a few HPs on the cheap in the past month or so, sorting through them to see which end up as keepers, but could not pass up M-80 for $30 and the UE6000 for $85. Or these for under $30...

Guys, be persistent but don't be aggressive with the CSR.  My CSR went from not honouring the price to giving me 50% off these DT250, and then finally talked to her supervisor and approved the original price.

 

Good luck!

Just received mine.  Thanks OP.

Going to get mine after calling the csr. Instead of honoring the original price, they gave me an offer i can't refuse. Not bad a deal.  Waiting for it to arrive next Monday.

Even though I bought mine out of stock they still came! :D

Awesome! Did you have to speak with them?

I no longer see amazon offering them for ~ $30, I guess they corrected the mistake. My original DT250 failed in less than 3 months, would have been great to get a replacement at such prices. Now that the ridiculous pricing in amazon is no longer available, what are some other good places to get a new pair ?

Pro audio star can take an offer of 135 for dt250.

Excellent advice. I'm not sure it would be worth trying myself considering (a) jwong got denied and (b) I am not a prime subscriber.

 

Anyone want to sell me their dt250's for $50? :)

 

I would but I'll probably cancel your order without telling you.

post #60 of 75

I've been a prime member for years, and I've been denied by multiple representatives. 

 

I'll just drop it. Don't know if it would "sound" as good knowing I had haggled it for a price I knew I shouldn't have gotten it for.
