Momentum over ear for $200?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've found a website that sell the Sennhieser Momentum over ear for $200 and the IE800 for $500.

I will post the links here:

Momentum:
http://www.themercantiletx.com/product_info.php?currency=AUD&language=en&products_id=864

IE 800:
http://www.themercantiletx.com/product_info.php?products_id=865

These are not the only ones. Here is the link to the main site:
http://www.themercantiletx.com/index.php

Does anyone know if this is legitimate?

It would be great if it was.

There's a fair chance that if the products are genuine, they're grey imports - brought into the country outside of distribution agreements.

 

I've found this outlet in a list of unauthorised places on the Audio-Technica site (as 'Mercantile TX, The'). It's likely the same story with Sennheiser.

If you have a problem with your headphones within the warranty period, you may not receive support from the manufacturer.
