post #4831 of 6387

Used Like New Sennheiser IE800 has dropped a lil more on Amazon to $507 shipped.  Seller only has 1 rating.  The one provided picture of the product looks like new as well, but given I've never seen one up close, and this isn't the biggest picture either, I am no real judge.  The next one up is new at $745 shipped, so quite a bit of room between the two.

I believe the IE800 has been counterfeited a lot. There are telltale signs but there'd have to be more pictures [it's little things, nothing obvious]. Not saying this is but it's good to be careful, especially since it's still not cheap.

Oh I'm certainly with you.  Its just that its cheap enough that for some, its worth the risk, especially seeing that if it turns out to be counterfeit and its on Amazon, I imagine getting your money back isn't exactly impossible either.

Also note that it'll be a couple of days before this is back in stock. Target date is the 14th. It'll ship once Amazon has them on hand.

Looks like someone bit and decided to try it out.  If its someone on here, good luck on them being legit and hope you love 'em.

I'm nervous buying Sennheiser products that are even returns to a reputable seller, w/ so many fakes out there. I wouldn't buy a returned Momentum or IE80, etc.

I'm a bit apprehensive about trying returned expensive products as well, but I know depending on the situation, one that is used can be a hell of a deal too.  I'm glad the last 2 Sennheisers I've bought that were great deals were new.

The implication is that the returned product may be a fake, while the fraudulent "customer" keeps the genuine article.

Yes, I'm aware of this.  I just accept that sometimes the price difference between used and new can be quite big, and some of the larger online companies have rather good return policies if it turns out you end up getting a fake.

$35 for the A151p?  Sony xba-1s are like $25 on amazon right now for another single ba.

It's one of the cheap IEMs I'll keep on hand. Good quality and good sound. I'd recommend using Comply tips with it for a better seal.

Great price!

Do your research, though. A lot of people really like it. I bought a couple of sets on the basis of the enthusiastic reviews.

Turns out it's not my cup of tea. It's on the analytical side, too stiff and hard sounding for my tastes.

But it's a great value if it's the kind of sound you like. Just make sure you know what you're getting.



Edit: shoot, my comments were for the A161p. I have actually never heard the A151p, so disregard the description.

It still pays to do your research, though, so you know what you're getting.
