Just scroll to the middle of the home page and you'll see the clearance/sale ad.

There also are a lot of headphones reduced from their day to day prices at www.overstock.com

Just search for headphones and then click ON SALE.

Plus, going to their Web site may activate or make available an online 10% coupon which could possibly be usable on headphones.

i dont see how theres anything at all wrong with buying something and reselling it on this site, that section IS a classifieds/ebay for headphones

 

theres absolutely no reason that u guys should be worrying about this guy selling his headphones hes got for a good deal where both members can agree on a middle of the road price and both benefit unless you're jealous somehow. lets be real, everyone on the FS forum is lying to sell their headphones, its marketing. do u think they really are selling it cos they 'have no time' or is there a real reason like they think the headphones suck? and do u really think everyone is selling for way below market price or are they trying to make/save as much money as possible?

 

sure, its technically breaking a rule, but the purpose of the rule is (or should be) to prevent people blatantly taking advantage of members. the deal is not available anymore and this member has contributed quite a lot to this site, im sure someone will be very happy with their purchase.

 

punish the people who deserve to be punished and examine by a case by case basis. hes not exactly opening up a flipping store on head fi

The purpose of the classified is to help members get new/different gears, it is not for people who wants to make a profit

If you want to make a profit, there's ebay. 

 

The classifieds are for non-commercial non-profit sales.  Buying and selling items on the forums for the express purpose of making a profit is not allowed.

Nope...the purpose of the rule is to prevent people from profiting from other members.  It goes against the spirit of this forum.

 

If the guy really bought his HD800s during the Amazon sale, he will probably make around $100.  This is a lot of money for some people.  The point is...it is against the rules and those rules are there for everybody to follow.   If you think there is nothing wrong with buying something on sale and putting it on the sales forum a couple of days later, why don't you try it and see how long it takes for your account to be banned.

I'm sure that I've seen people getting banned for buying on this forum and then flipping on ebay.

Yeah, I've seen that too, but in this case it's someone who bought it from Amazon.

I noticed that GROUPON has a Blue Ant wired headphone, their Embrace model, for $39.99 with shipping, 80% off list.

Amazon has a third party seller asking the same amount. You might want to look at the reviews; I have not tried them.

They might be a reasonable deal for the money. Amazon has a nice description of the unit, and I saw some reviews here, as well as some good comments on Amazon.

I've removed a few pages of recent discussion in this thread.

I'll say this once: Flipping products is an abuse of this community and there are NO justifiable exceptions. If one person does it, then other people will do it and say "But you let him do it, why can't I?" and the floodgates will open.  There is no further place for discussion of this rule, it is absolute.

Buy Sell Trade Rules

Thank you, Currawong.

I myself have been looking through the classifieds and keeping an eye out for potential abuses of the recent deals that have been going on.

Looks like I wasn't the only one who had their suspicions. Cheers to you guys

 

There's nothing I personally despise more than the fact people are willing to make a profit and make a monetary gain on headfi, when so many others contribute and give back the community.

 

This is absolutely unacceptable. 

 

Please notify all members who are selling products for much more than their asking price. Sometimes though, they genuinely don't know. Keep it private, no need to call out anyone. Too many times I see people posting links to amazon, etc. on other people's listing.

 

Then, as stated, report using the red flag and that's it. The admins/mods will handle the rest.

 

Edit: 

Now, let's please get back to the discussion of deals. Enough about flipping and abuses of rules.
