LOL if you think that Ebay is at 20% cashback. Try 8%.

What a jackass



I got that pm too. What a jerk.
Guys over at slickdeals.com bought like 10-30 units... What a bunch of greedy people.

How do you guys manage to get these great deals. When i look at the listed price of the Triples, they're still listed at 300+.

Sigh!! I want a pair too (if they're going for 100 with the 50 rebate).

A couple days ago I bought "The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks" and a free trial membership of Amazon Prime Shipping was offered which I accepted. I then proceeded to buy these via the "Two Day One Click Free Shipping" option.

How is paying $120 better than paying $110 or $100?


It's not, but I think it's better than paying $150 and dealing with a $50 rebate. Plus, you'll most likely get the earphones within a week or two instead of waiting past Christmas.

Screen shot as of 10 mins ago. You just gotta know where to look.

I think that makes the cheapest TF10s ~$155-20% = ~$125 on ebay

The pm part is jerk-ish, but I give major props--and thanks--to the guys at slickdeals. Given that the deal was running only for one day, we didn't lose out on the deal just because they picked up on it. I suppose the deal might've lasted longer had fewer units sold, but I think anyone who was there for the day of the deal was able to participate, and I definitely got the impression it was time based. The fact that other people picked up so many units means in the hope of reselling for a profit will drive prices down, and those of us who missed the deal (myself included) now will have a much better opportunity to benefit from the deal after the fact.

Dangggg~ that’s a good deal... Unfortunately I can't take advantage of that, cause Bing Cash Back is only for United States residence. Not for Canadians unfortunately

Yeah, first thing I noticed. It's free for USA residence, but shipping anywhere outside of USA is $99.99! Just aheads up for people planning to buy on ebay, check all fine print and details before going and making the purchase!
Stay smart!

hi all, i was the op on this deal. i'm glad to see so many people got the deal from amazon and then from logitech. i originally didn't plan on buying these because i knew they wouldn't fit my ears, but i couldn't resist the deal and picked up a pair of the triple.fi 10vi. with the free amazon prime 2-day shipping, they're set to get here on dec. 8th! for those that don't know, you can have up to 4 "family" members join your amazon prime account. i ended up splitting the $80 cost between 3 friends and myself, so $20 isn't too bad for a year of free/fast shipping.

After reading the thread, is Fisher Hearing the best place to get these reshelled? custom earphones with 10vi drivers for $200 sounds amazing. any feedback would be very appreciated. thanks in advance!

It looks like Fisher Hearing is a solid choice for reshelling into customs. They seem to be friendly and do a good job.
There's also Unique Melody in China that can reshell and add another driver in. It's supposed to sound similar to the higher end UE custom offerings after that. It does cost substantially more though.

[edit: by the way, thanks for making this thread!]

Hmm a 10vi cable should still work with them once re-shelled, right? They could make for the first ever iphone headset customs
