These are brand new, never been used.  I only plugged them in once to check if the solder points were intact, and they are.  The cable is terminated for Unique Melody recessed sockets, but they can be reterminated to fit Westone, JH, and UE IEMs.  Comes w/ the case pictured.
 
Review can be found here.

Amp City sells this for 225$ new, on this forum people are selling for 200. 
 
I'll let it go for 120$, which is cheaper than anywhere I can find.  If you can find it for cheaper, I'll sell for less.  Buyer pays shipping.  I'll ship anywhere.  I'll also consider a trade for UE TF10.

Well the cable is labeled ampcity.  So I believe you are mistaken, I'll post a pic.

i dont think i am but i could be wrong.  amp city cables are braided...this one is not.  http://www.ampcity.co.uk/headphone-cables-recabling/ultimate-ears-custom-iem-cable-silver-fortis.html
 
also, the cable you have listed uses the same connectors and have the same case as beat audio.  http://ameblo.jp/e-earphone/image-10963447109-11370037193.html is a japanese site but you can use google chrome to translate it and it says beats audio...and that cable is like the one thats in the top left

Aside from the fact that I have a receipt saying Ampcity Fortis.  This cable is braided my camera is not good enough to show, but trust me it is.  The ampcity fortis cable has recently been revamped, hence thedelay in me getting it from the UM group buy.
 
Here it is on the Amp City site.

I'm not trying to pull a fast one here, the details are laid out in the open.
 
EDIT: I see what you mean by braided now, I think the revision is no longer braided and hence why this cable is not.

There are several other members selling the same cable, btw.  We can't all be mistaken...

im not trying to thread crap... i see they must have made a revision and not being sold on their website yet or something.  apologize if it came off that way.... just when i saw the fortis cable for 120 i was excited but then i saw the picture.  looks like a nice cable... just surprised it doesnt match the one from the website.  did UM say it was the fortis cable?  j/w because i was wanting the fortis cable and saw your ad and the picture just didnt match up from the ampcity picture.
