    Never, ever, buy headphones off of ebay.

    Well I officially faxed them the documents they asked for.  Had my manager write up a letter explaining that he sells Sony headphone, and those aren't Sony headphones.  Metal vs plastic, quality of pads, etc.  Also attached his business card to the fax and put on the store phone #.  That's the...

    Never, ever, buy headphones off of ebay.

    Ok, I relent, BAD thread title. I was just ticked off.  I still use ebay, and will continue to do so, im more upset with paypal than ebay.   And sphinxvc, I work at Radioshack, we sell some Sony headphones.  Maybe ill just write something and have my manager sign it, I know he'd back me if...

    Never, ever, buy headphones off of ebay.

    So I made this thread a couple of weeks ago: http://www.head-fi.org/t/570154/did-i-get-knockoff-xb700-s   Asking if I had gotten some fake XB700's, the general consensus was that I did.  Now that I have a real pair of XB700's, I can say with absolute certainty that they are super fake, the...

    Did I get knockoff XB700's?

    Quote: Yep.  Thanks guys, that's pretty much what I thought.  Im working with paypal and ebay as we speak to get my money back.  The funny thing is they dont really sound too bad, but no where near what I was expect out of the xb700.  Not near enough bass lol.

    Did I get knockoff XB700's?

    No, this was ebay, not amazon.  And it was a scam, not a mistake.  Look at the pics I posted, the headphones have XB700 written on them.  And upon closer inspection of the packaging, the package says both XB700, and 40mm drivers.  This is a straight up KIRF.  I would honestly be surprised if...

    Did I get knockoff XB700's?

    I got these headphones off of an ebay seller in china.  They had a good feedback rating, and they came in what appeared to be sealed sony packaging.  But when I look at pictures of the XB700's, like these on amazon...

    Help on buying bassy headphones.

    This is an easy recommendation, Sony XB700.  If you can swing $130 the AT-M50's are also excellent, I found them to be uncomfortable but most dont.

    Similar to the AD700's but more comfortable?

    Ouch. Thanks for the suggestions but I probably should have said, looking to stay around the same price as the 700's.

    Similar to the AD700's but more comfortable?

    Easy question.  I got some AD700's, and they sound amazing for gaming, but I just cant get comfortable in them.  I love the headband, but the pads are just too big and hot.  I have tried a few padding mods and they just arent really working for me, any ideas?  I really like my UR-40's from a...

    Help Convincing Friend that ATH-M50's Are Superior to Beats

    Can she still return them?  If she can, try and show her that she can have amazing cans like the M50's that sounds just as good if not better for less then half the cash.   If she can't return them, drop it.  She just shelled out $300 for those headphones, and she's happy.  If you somehow...

    What to upgrade to from Koss UR-40's?

    Ok, last call to give me advice on XB700 vs ATH-M50 vs Ultrasone 580. Any takers?

    What to upgrade to from Koss UR-40's?

    Ok, I'm going to be ordering some headphones today.  I decided against the AD700's, I need some base.  Im really leaning towards the XB700's, I'm a little worried the bass on those might overpower everything, I like hard base but I don't want it to overpower the rest of the music/movie/game...

    What to upgrade to from Koss UR-40's?

    Interesting, I think I need to rethink the AT's then.  I def dont think the UR40s are too bassy at all.  I might take a harder look at the Sony's, im not an Audiophile, so def looking for something more in the "fun" department.   And no I dont need an open, if anything I would prefer closed.

    What to upgrade to from Koss UR-40's?

    Thanks, been doing a lot of research on the AD700, and it looks like a great option.  The only thing that has me concerned is the lack of bass.  Wouldn't the lack of base be a detriment for games and especially movies?  How would the bass on the AD700's compare to my UR-40's? I don't feel like...
