I found some FX500s on ebay for only $36 (1 cent + 35.99 int'l shipping): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rt=nc&nma=true&item=270701056938&si=De9WkbxIM7fXlOJ87%252BdrEia71Ro%253D&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123#ht_500wt_954 And I'm wondering whether they're fake. It just seems too good to be true. After I won the bid, I emailed the guy with my concerns, citing this head-fi thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/492189/fake-jvc-fx500-is-here-photos-inside He said he'd checked the photos and they weren't fake. And he has a high ebay rating, with positive feedback specifically on the FX500s. But ... he's operating out of Israel through a dealer in China. All just sounds too good to be true. What do you think?
