As my first post, I figured I'd make a PSA and warn about fake headphones, which can be confusing especially when buying online...
I was about to shell out $399 for an IE800 and I thought this was GREAT deal (on ebay). Even though the seller was from China (had 290 feedback 100%), I never thought anyone would knock off such a high end model as an IE800.
...Then I searched the chinese "ebay/amazon": taobao.com
My point is -- even if you think it's a high end brand/headphone that can't be faked, search the chinese site first. Doesn't matter if you can't read chinese, just type in the model name in english and hit search. If you find something in chinese yuan (again, remember the 6:1 exchange rate) that's WAY TOO CHEAP, be careful about buying similar headphones on a site like ebay for a cheap price. Especially if the seller is in Asia (not to be racist or anything).
*also a note about IE80's on ebay -- half of them are fake. stay away.
