    I put in for an order. Not the end of the world if it gets canceled. I just wanted to get one to mod and mess around with. It's been years since I owned a grado too.

    Well, I'll take whatever they give me. :)

    Or if not, I'll cancel or return since its sold by Amazon.

    Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available."

    I placed an order for one ... who knows what, when or if. Will be my new You Tube listening set, if it arrives.

    FYI: I purchased a new DAP from joybuy and received it defective. I followed their procedure to open a return and it was denied because they wanted a video proof, which is reasonable. So, after uploading the video proof, they replied and suggested that I should get it fixed locally - What! It's one of those damn wheel navigation mechanism. I had to open a PayPal claim to return and shipping back to joybuy (HK) isn't cheap. That's my experience and hopefully it is in the minority of things.

    I've been tempted to get the ZX300 since it's so cheap And apparently legit but issues like yours keep me from doing so.

    I bought my Sony ZX300A from Joy buy. Sonys being legit their QC is tops. So the likely hood something will happen to your player is not likely. I am not the only person who got one from them either. For the other players will lesser QC I would pass however.

    I am usually not a fan of comments on this thread about vendor reputation because too often they reference an individual experience (ie...I got a defective one) and then generalize it (ie...so everything they sell is defective and no one should ever buy from them).

    But I appreciate alpha 421's input because it clearly points out possible issues with overseas vendors without generalizing. From what I can tell Joy Buy is legitimate....but similar to buying from Ali-express, if you have initial issues you will probably get hit with return shipping charges a bit of a hassle, and a good wait. Similarly, though the product may be legit, it probably does not have a USA warranty.

    Knowing that, we can each make our own decisions on the risk/benefit of dealing with Joy Buy. Thanks alpha421 and Dsnuts

    I bought a Yugo once. The generalizations were accurate!

    Ipso Facto: All Generalizations are accurate :)

    Yes, my worry was more on warranty from Sony and dealing with overseas return should need be. That's why I don't deal with AliExpress much anymore.

    Generally yes. My own experience with JB was 0 stars.
