Any experience with any of the other headphones, etc, from Edifier? They look beautiful, but once again, comfort is the main issue. =D

Nope, just that one.

Don't touch the Dolphin noise isolating earphones (id: 336509) available at Woolworths.  I've set up a thread to see if anyone else has tried any of the other Chinese brand headphones they have on offer.

 

There's a brand called Moshi and another I've never heard of.  I'm tempted to try the Moshi studio headphones if Woolworths will exchange the Dolphin super trash headphones, but to be honest I'm a touch scared now.

I wouldn't.

 

As a general rule, most large stores with no special interest in audio will not stock premium equipment from China. There may be a good one here and there, but YMMV. Profit margins > quality.

 

Moshi looks decent, but something seems off. It looks as if they use an OEM supplier for their headphones.

I got my Phrodi Pod201 today, or at least so I thought until I opened the package just to find the Pod007 there instead. Kind of lame to wait five weeks for them to arrive just to find out that you get another model then the one you actually bought and that you have paid double the price.....

After a few unlucky episodes on Aliexpress lately I will not buy anything more there, I'd rather use Ugomark since it seems more reliable, are usually cheaper and one can use PayPal there. Also I found no way to complain on Aliexpress when you don't get what you order.........

The good thing though is that the Phrodi Pod007 are very nice for the ~$10 that they should cost shipped.

Aliexpress actually has the buyer protection. Forwarding services don't (that I know of).

 

You can dispute the order in the "orders" section. They will send a partial refund, exchange, or whatever aliexpress rules on. It runs very much like ebay.

Try to get any orders in before the 20th. China basically shuts down for 2 weeks for Chinese New Year and doesn't ship out anything at that time.

Thanks for the heads up. Almost forgot about that.

bhazard,

How well built is your H850's? Here's the links to the headphones I was wondering about, using Amazon. =D

 

Edifier H650

http://www.amazon.com/Edifier-H650-Foldable-Noise-Isolating-Headphone/dp/tech-data/B00EO193SQ

Edifier H840

http://www.amazon.com/Edifier-H840-Over-Ear-Noise-Isolating-Headphone/dp/B00CW5MVXA

Edifier H750

http://www.amazon.com/Edifier-Foldable-Noise-Isolating-Headphone-H750/dp/B00AG8S5SA

 

Just considering Chinese/Asian brand Headphones. =D

The H850 is better built and most likely better sounding than all those models. It can be gotten for much cheaper than amazon prices as well.

Good to know. =D Just searching around before I get anything. =D

No.

 

You want sellers with crown emoticons instead of hearts, and that have made previous sales. This one has sold 0 of them, making it highly suspect.

post #898 of 6576

Thanks for warning,

 

But that is strange. I opened the product via ugomark and it says it has:

 

  • 99.8% Positive Feedback
  • 7406 Feedback
post #899 of 6576
I've noticed that every single seller openend via Ugomark has 99,8% positive feedback, coinsidens?
post #900 of 6576

Peter, so Ugomark shows positive feedback for all sellers regardless they actuall feedback? WOW

 

Anyway, I think I just found the description image worth sharing:

:D
