Headsets from ebay?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey there!

I'm just wondering if anyone had any luck buying headsets from ebay? I'm looking for a new headset and was going to buy the plantronics 777 from newegg but I then saw these sennheiser pc350 for like 60$ on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/New-Sennheiser-PC...ht_1327wt_1139


Yes... they're from China. That's exactly why I'm unsure. Anyone?

Thanks.

P.S. I'm open to suggestions in the 60-80$ range.

Check for feedback on similar sales.

But I did find this;

Quote:
Just get a mixamp for like £60 and buy pc350's for £80-100 off ebay (Make sure you dont buy from china)

But the pc350's are amazing and similar sound wise to the pc360's just the pc360's look sleeker and have added features

I personally wouldn't go for it. The price is alluring but anything under 99% feedback rating is a no-no in my book.

I would consider this seller if his feedback was in the 1000s or 10,000s with a >99%, plus it's from China, if he screws you over there's nothing you can do about it.
Shhhhh!

I bought a wired "Microsoft standard" Xbox 360 controller from China like 2 years ago and it wasn't anything close to the normal ones.

I shall never buy from China again.

I've had great results with sellers on Ebay. I bought my Shure SE530s as well as a lot of high end home audio gear and have yet to be disappointed. If the seller doesn't have a lot of history, contact them and use your head. Talk on the phone if it's a big purchase and you're uneasy. A legit seller will do their best to win your confidence.

But this is a China seller and it's being sold for less than half its normal price...lol.

Yep. They're fake.

OP, you can just google "[specific heaphones] + ebay + fake" and you'll get a ton of results warning against buying these fakes from China. If the price is too good to be true (for items that are supposed to be new), then it probably is.

If it is too good to be true, it is. Trust me, I bought a couple months ago 2 sennheiser px100 which cost me 10 dollars a piece. I knew even before I bought them, those were fakes (the seller got banned 1 week after my purchase). To be honest, the sound from the cheap px100 didn't differ that much from an original px100. The thing is that the material they were made from, was really ****ty. Especially the joints. I think I broke the 2 ebay px100 in less than a week .
