GROUP BUY: Alessandro MS-2s - Page 2

post #16 of 290
Is all of this really worth it for $40-50 savings? Why don't you try doing the same thing with the U.S. distributor? It just seems silly buying U.S. headphones from overseas.

I agree - if the Taiwan thing is too hard then scrap it and go for a group purchase from Alessandro USA. I am sure we can get more people to join in the group buy and shipping costs will also be reduced.

Please have a little more patience and no worries. I have left messages on the message board and they will see very soon. If in a few hours there's still no reply I will call them.

Oh trust me, if we could get something worked out with Alessandro for a group purchase and not have to have them shipped from Taiwan, I would be all for it. Someone should call them though, because they sure aren't very good about returning emails.

But to answer your question, yes I think saving $50 is well worth it. That may be pocket change for some members here, but I'm in college and money doesn't exactly grow on trees for me (yet).

NOTE: They say they have replied the E-Mail. micr0c0sm... see if you have received it. I'm not sure whom it was sent to, which isn't mentioned in the message. http://www.hifi.com.tw/gbook4/index.asp

Im very sorry I just had an extremely busy and exhausting weekend.

I got the e-mails. I am confirming with him that we will buy 10 alessandro MS-2s for a total of $240 shipped each to a location in the US.

What this means, is that the total price for these phones are going to be $240 + domestic shipping. He will send out the headphones in boxes of 5, so there is a possibility of shipping to two seperate adressess. This way we can cut down on the domestic shipping even more. If you are willing to pay $240+domestic reply to this thread with the subject and title "Confirmed $240+domestic".

Sorry for not following directions.

This is looking good. $50.00 savings after all shipping is taken into consideration is certainly good.

Wonder what may have happened if a larger scale group buy had come through.

STILL - the matter of payment exists. I am ready to pay one person in FL who will receive the headphones. The payment will include :-

* Cost of headphones
* My share of the shipping cost from Alessandro to the collector of the 5-pack

* Shipping cost to my door.

Any ideas?
