the seller is a reputable member here with excellent feedback ,so i am not afraid of him - on the contrary he has been most helpful

he contacted RM and they told him the package is still at heathrow , but i don't know whether they checked the same computer tracking like me , or they found it in physical form

again, what worries me is the zero package movement progression for 20 days now.....i mean it's UK where everything is supposed to work clockwork

Maybe they're held as security til after the Greek elections.

Joking aside, if the last tracking update shows Heathrow they may have already left the UK and simply not registered in Greece. I've had packages arrive at my door in Austria while tracking still showed them in the UK. Did you contact your local post office with the tracking number?

Lots of tracking numbers from national post offices do not work once the package is out of the country. Customs is probably holding it, or its in the hands of a seperate shipping company. the only way to find out is to follow the trail by calling people on the phone until you get to whoever has it, or calling greek customs and seeing what they can figure out. either way its not fun...

Will do. I get why you miss them. The Lab 1's made my ie800's, UM Merlin's and Fitear Parterre's all redundant (and since sold), but the K3003's are standing their ground against the Lab 1 and are here to stay.

I just joined the club and I have to say... So far they are amazing! Very happy with the sound quality. They put my se425s to shame.

I'm using an LG g3 with poweramp and flac files but I'm finding the volume rather low. Should I consider getting an amp/dac? If so any suggestions?

I don't know much about Android phones, but I use <40% volume on my iPhone 6 with the 3003s. I'm starting to wonder about how great the iPhone output is.

listen to mine at around 1/4 volume out of the iphone 5. sometimes take it up a 1/3 or so of the way depending on music, mood etc. can't imagine going any more than 1/2 way which would be plenty loud.

Given that these are only 8ohms I can't imagine your G3 is unable to power them . Have you tried another app? Is safe headset volume checked in (android) settings/sound?
