I was probably experiencing high blood sugar or something bidding on a Chinese product that seemed to good to be true.

They are absolute s#it, and sound horrible.

I just filed a complaint after two days of messaging the seller.

Has anyone (probably everyone) ever gotten knock offs on eBay? If I file a complaint I will get my $ back, right?

The official resellers are the only safe place to buy IE8/80/800.

How much did you pay?

Any good full sized open headphones?

Put Takstar Pro 80 on that list too. I have just heard them for a few minutes out of the box - very impressive.

Could be a perfect all-a rounder.

IE8's are like $400. Ebay stands behind everything. File a complaint saying "not as advertized".

I already did. I just hope it ends up I get my 61 dollars back, and the a-hole that tried ripping people off gets banned from eBay.

60$ ? You knew what you were buying.

Actually, it was listening to someone else's "oem" sennheiser ie8 (that he got from China) that got me interested. They sounded fantastic and not far off from the real deal. I thought maybe these were the same thing as what he had. Unfortunately I was mistaken.

If you want the cheaper than the real thing type deal, the only way to go should be the Earmax version or maybe the TinGo version :)

If I get my money back I'll take a look at them. Thanks for the heads up.

Someone did get a pair of the 80's a bit ago and seems happy with them and the ebay feed back on them that I read is good as well for the 80's. http://www.head-fi.org/t/684159/chinese-asian-brand-info-thread-headphones-iems-amps-dacs/2745#post_10500275

What about chinese open phones - I'm quite curious about that as well. Is the takstar hi2050 undisputed champion in open budget chifi? Only phone I ever see mentioned being anywhere close is the somic mh463 and possibly the superlux wilderness (not chinese but close enough).

You can just buy Havi B3 Pro MK1 for 60$ and boost it's bass in EQ.

@Hisoundfi

 can you describe bass level of dn1k with e30 and kc06, and mids between kc06 and dn1k 

i am considering to buy it but i am worried that may be they are too bassy for me.
