In the last couple of days I've been looking for new in-ear headphones to buy. I had a hard time deciding between Sennheiser IE 800 and Shure SE846 until I realized that the Shure officially sells for a far higher price in Europe than in the US while Sennheiser sells for about the same in both places. I'm just wondering why anyone living in Europe would buy Shure over Sennheiser with this price difference. I know if I bought the Shure - no matter how good they are I would always feel like I had been ripped off since they officially sells far cheaper in the US while Sennheiser sells for pretty much the same price in Europe and the US. I know and understand that a lot of items are far cheaper in the US compared to Europe but when you have two close to equal items (from what I've read from reviews) like IE 800 and SE846 it just seems a waste getting Shure if you do not live in the US. It might seem a bit stupid to complain about this when I'm already willing to pay 600 pounds for a pair of headphones but I just can't get over it . Did anyone else go with Sennheiser over Shure because of this?
