Please advise? Still fairly new to posting things on here
Price via the link is £149.99 for the blue one and £129.99 for the other colours btw
I think your title needs a little work
I have purchased some from.zapals simply because on podcasts the sound quality doesn't really matter. Never used the originals I've got with my s8. couldn't face it if I lost them whereas if the fakes fail or get lost its only a pound.
I had the Samsung S8's and S8+'s earphones last year but don't remember much how they sounded. Just over a month ago purchased these directly from Amazon they looked real and sound I thought was original as well but then I again I returned them as I had better sounding headphones. Less than a week ago I purchased S9+ 256GB model and tested the earphones again and wow. Clearly a difference between the one's which come in the box and the one's which are being sold seperately.
The word genuine is the key one- it means it works with the Samsung phone. What you need to look out for its the work original in a description. This is more of a sign of someone claiming it is the real thing. At least that is how Ebay uses those terms. Based on your description these are the same as the Zapal fakes which can be got for under £1.
The s8 and s9 are the same ones
These are the ones that came with the s8, I see your confusion :p
Go to main website and add code to till if not on O2 network www.o2.co.uk
Code doesn’t work
RIP Priority, switched over to 3 fir Wuntu. Free beer!
O2 offers are boring.Bring back the £1 lunch NOW!
The sub-woofer on mine collects flies. The wiring feels messy whatever I do and the small speakers have needed re-gluing twice. That said, great sound and a bargain at this price.
My ones are still sounding good, just that the sticks come apart really easily. Nothing a bit of clear tape can't fix though.
Listening to mine now. Great system. Bought them for the same price last time there was an ebay code on.
Got these from Harman Kardon for just £60 with £40 off code back in December 2015. This is therefore not the best deal from them that they've done. Edit: let me add that they sound fantastic though, so if this is the cheapest you can find or you really want them then go for it.
I got them cheaper for £78 directly from Harman about a year ago. Was a special Xmas deal. They sound amazing.
These are ok for the price. Often found between £79.99 and £99.99. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Its good value but they look better than they sound.
Me never did seen price cheaperer excepter when dodgy amazon seller post his ad
When the OP stated "I never seen this price for that item." I thought they meant that low of a price, not that exact price ;)
Quick to the time machine Marty!
However, the deal is still going! Not sure why it's expired

I have the aura plus, I think this is the same speaker. They are excellent, people said too much bass but you can control all that with the HK app, my only fault is that I have my connected to an echo dot and it starts to stutter after a week or so connected so needs to be turned off and turned back on which fixes the problem. Only a minor issue though really. I’m no audiophile but I think the sound quality is excellent, better than the Bose speakers I have, it’s strange because it doesn’t feel like the sound is coming from just one place which is excellent
You need to set it to 'Through the Fire and Flames' bruh.
I imagine 7.1 like this should be ok. Generally speaking a lot of amps / av receivers have a mic for adjusting the balance of the speakers. Does anyone have these setup yet? We're moving home so mine are all still in the box. Can't wait to hear them though.
Since Im now waiting for an amp (Mine dosnt have outputs for the sub) Can a normal pair of floor standing speakers be used as the front 2 speakers. This way I would have 7.1 or would it be weird having a sup and large front speakers?
Congratulations your our lucky winner just print off place on box happy days she will never know lol, mine was not happy even when I showed her the retail price
Mines arrived safely too. How do I set them up without the missus noticing?
Haha, ordered two as going to use two, separate orders and only got the extra tenner off the first order. I thought even that may have been pushing my luck, surprised they honoured both orders.
Great Speaker at a great price £100 less than Amazon
Perhaps put that info in the OP as well as RRP in the title. Looks like a good deal to me if anyone's looking to buy this.
https://www.harmankardon.co.uk/HKAURAPLUSWHTEU.html? £349 https://www.sotel.de/en/Handyzubehoer/Externes-Zubehoer/Hifi-Audio/Harman-Kardon-Aura-LED-Plus-Wireless-speaker-white.html? £294 so £199 is massive discount :)
Wouldn't call it massive.
The custom fees are included as well when you buy from amazon US - these are baked into the cost and are shown seperatley at checkout (Amazon are unusual in this respect as most sellers will not include them and they you hope things don't get stuck). I have bought quite a large number of things from amazon US and never had any other charges added other than those shown at checkout. i agree about the warranty (although many items have global warranties these days if its from a major company) - certainly would be more of a pain to send things back if they were unsuitable. Most electrical items will work in different territories and you can often swap out power cables for larger devices unless they are hard wired.
Sorry i was talking about customs fees. If you buy from US custom can hold your stock until you pay fees so in total can cost you more then in the UK. Also consider warranty. If you buy stock from outside EU you dont have warranty and then you have to send stock back to US and that cost fortune. And also US plug but this is minor issue. If you still prefer to buy from US i dont have more arguments.
Amazon include the tax - all tax and shipping was included in the price i quoted. i went through to checkout and confirmed before posting £195 is the full cost. you cant buy anything from amazon US without them adding the tax at checkout.
and very often you have to pay tax which seller not mentioning.
I bought the refurb for 199 on eBay and it was like new when it arrived, brilliant speaker!
Ended up buying the LG LAS355B soundbar that was posted on here instead. Thanks anyway!
I will definitely let you know one it is on again
missed the boat on this one unfortunately ... has this been on offer again since?
Harman Kardon is every famous brand. You have return policy so can always test before decide to keep it or not. It is very good price and sound quality
Thanks! Is it as good or better than a sound bar in this price range?
I complained. Got money credited to an account. £35 though. No money taken from my account at any point
Who did you complain to Raj?
Also received my PayPal refund yesterday :D
Got my PayPal refund yesterday
Mine arrived today. Excellent sound
Can't work out if I like or not
Ahh good to hear, it would be for music only to be honest. There’s a definite market for decent computer speakers, I’ve also looked at the Bose Companion 50, although not the biggest fan of their sound signature. Funnily enough I went for the PX and I’ve really fallen for B&W sound, I’ve currently got Monitor Audio for the home cinema, and when the time comes to change them, I’ll most likely go with B&W then too :)
Not too bad at all. Certainly good enough that I never miss any lower bass from the HKs. I suppose that if you were using them as a kind of cinema speaker setup you might want the separate sub but I use them for general computer use, music mostly (for which they are amazing) and youtube videos etc. I do watch TV/films with them as well though and find them great for this too. It is surprising how good the sound is given their size. I quite like the sound of B&W stuff though so might be slightly biased, I already have a Zeppelin and some P5s :) although did forgo the PX's recently in favour of some Bose QC35 ii instead.
Thanks for the reply chap, I’ve heard very good reviews about them, but I’ve never heard them, how do they handle the lower frequencies? They’re obviously not going to have the grunt of a sub, but are they able to handle the lower end?
Bought it....looks very nice and hip.......but is quiet, ok for a small flat I think??
(y) no worries.
Thank you for this post. Ordered two for me and sister. (y)
I say these ones. But I'm biased ;)
Any thing Blue tooth that receives the sound from the device by blue tooth **wirelessly**will need either a mains cable to function or recharging by cable, so how 'wireless' will any thing blue tooth be????????????????????
You crack on then lad
These speakers look great and sound incredible, I've had mine going on 10 years now, still going strong and still sounding fantastic.
Have had my SoundSticks III for over 5 years and they're still in daily use and sound awesome IMO. I've pretty much pushed them to the max quite regularly by using them as monitors on my Mac when my active pre-amp bass guitar is hooked up to it, and they haven't missed a beat. Would by HK speakers again if/when these finally give up the ghost.
You talk some serious crap. Go suck your undersized donkeys Wang!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Very informative post and you're quite right about some of the rubbish reductions AW offer but, as mentioned, keep an eye out if interested as every so often there can be major reductions on price. However, despite amazon stating 30 day returns, they do offer up to 2 year returns if a product becomes faulty. I know this since I returned a 15 month old Surface tablet late last year which could not be repaired and was fully refunded by Amazon. I have also returned the odd item within a year (from warehouse) without any issue at all from Amazon chat once mentioning the issue I was experiencing. Only slight issue was I had to organise my own delivery to their warehouse to be sure it was fully insured for the Surface but this was also fully refunded once I uploaded proof of posting to them. Hope it helps someone.
Whilst it may be the case that there are deals sometimes to be had on Amazon Warehouse in terms of product cost, I do have two huge reservations about buying anything from them. The first is a real biggie and it's this: "Due to the unique nature of each Amazon Warehouse Deals item, we unfortunately will be unable to replace any item. Please note that used products are not covered by the original manufacturer's warranty. If a product becomes defective after 30 days you won't be able to return it using our online return centre. You may wish to visit the manufacturer's website or contact them directly as they may be able to offer troubleshooting and support with the issue you have with the product." So in your case you have a brand new laptop for a good price but you effectively have a guaranteed warranty of 30 days. Any issue after that time and you will be reliant on the good graces of Amazon or Dell to aid you. I would hold out more hope that Amazon will do something for you but, for my part, if I were laying out the thick end of a grand on some electronic item such as a laptop (and I soon will be) I'd want more than a months warranty on it. If I were buying a non-new Dell (and I won't be doing so anytime soon having dealt with them recently and found them to be dreadful) then I would go via their outlet because they provide a 12 month warranty on what they sell. The other issue I have with the Warehouse "deals" is that many of them are far from it. Current real-life example? Sure. ASUS ROG Strix GL702VM-GC182T, brand new, 2yrs manufacturers warranty, £1,282.16. Warehouse "deal" price for exactly the same item? £1,230.87 (lol) Really, Amazon? Gee, thanks. Fifty two quid - a gnat's over 4% - off in exchange for twenty three months warranty? In my book that's absolutely taking the f in p. Let's take another example. ASUS GL502VM-FY172T 15.6-inch Full HD Gaming Laptop (Titanium). New price, £1,349.97. Warehouse price, £1,229.43. £120, or about 9% off. Sounds better, doesn't it? But look closer. That's less than 10% off a used item in this instance, not an open or mere damaged box return. There's another you can have for 40 quid more which is "As new", but that will cost another £40, so the reduction is now down to £80, or 6% and the sacrifice of 23 months warranty. And that, quite frankly, is just garbage. That's thirteen hundred quid items being discounted by single figure percentages - some ridiculously with low single figures to boot - and being sold with less warranty than a lot of established Ebay and Amazon third party sellers are offering. Good luck with your XPS, I hope it gives you years of trouble free use but I caution the unwary about Warehouse for the above reasons. Also they seem to be offloading 6th gen processor machines in the guise of bargains. Maybe they are but do your research before buying one, assuming you fancy the warranty lottery. (skeptical)
Would that not be a plastic pig though? I think the Zenbook is a metal premium model, a bit like a MacBook? Could be wrong.
That is sooooo expensive. How possible is that people voted heat!! you can buy a 8th gen i7 with same spec or even better.
Keep an eye on Amazon warehouse guys. I managed to snag an XPS 13 with 8th Gen i7 processor (8gb, 256gb, fhd model) for 830 the other week - was brand new with seals intact. Amazing laptop too. Do keep an eye out as they become available every few weeks if interested.
Outrageous price; expected it to be fruit related
Since when has a 25% discount not qualified a a deal. Heat added! Just a shame, I don't need anymore headphones.
Would buy the HD800 in a heartbeat instead of a second hand set.
My wife would have me Re certified if I spent this much on headphones.
Thats a lot of dosh for a set of headphones,.... trouble is .....they might be better than my ears ! but yes if i had the money.....just out of curiousity
If anyone needs a code - I have a online one available - offer is still on for 3 days roughly
yes please... PM me?
Do you still want the code?
Beware, don't order this for delivery. O2 web site doesn't allow you to enter flat number, ukmail doesn't deliver without the full address. My package in the depot since 7th of March, neither o2 nor ukmail is helping to amend/cancel the order. It's stuck in limbo. They told me to call my bank to get my money back. What a mess.
I bought these for my girlfriend and I got a bit disappointed. The bluetooth is so unreliable that I had to buy a Google audio cast to stream via wifi. Also, the bass sound is not balanced with mids and highs. There is way too much bass in this thing. It might be ok for hip hop and rnb but not for other styles.
