Or any other equivalent service, need a game shipped from UK to India.

Can someone clarify something for me? I recently ordered a book and 2 T-shirts from citadel9.com. They shipped the items from Spain via their local post so it arrives here via India Post. It reached already and it should be in my hands in about 2 or 3 days. Since I didn’t get any update regarding customs duty, I called the Foreign Post Office where it’s supposed to arrive today. I asked them how much the duty would be and they were like depending on what the Customs Dept feels like, either 0 or 77 percent.

 

 

what the hell? 77 percent customs for a book and T-shirts? Is that even legal?


I bought many Blu rays from UK which arrived via speedpost and never paid any customs. 

But the one time when the package was big, post office called me and asked me to visit, pay customs and collect the package. 

 

They charged around 2500 for the order value of 7000.

Thanks for sharing. I’m now hoping the box is not too big and they don’t charge me the whole 77%

This is an amazing site to find some rare blu rays and even games. 

Their shipping cost is also very less because they use Royal mail/speed post. But won't have any tracking info. 

Yo this site is awesome. I’ve been trying to find a particular vinyl for a while and they have it for a very good price. Thanks again!

Not sure if this is the place for it, but can someone recommend a decent pair of speakers? (<3-4k)

I don't mind if it's bluetooth as long as it has Aux In. Looking to attach to my monitor to use as a TV replacement.

I'm using creative stage air 20w soundbar. Generally available for 2k. Check reviews.

Reviews for WF1000XM4 ? If anybody used them after XM3s, any substantial difference ? 

How's the fit and comfort ? 

I can get them for nearly 15k. Worth the price ?

I have tried them both.

Audio, not much difference.

Fit and comfort, quite a lot better.

Can't say if it would make sense for you coming from XM3s. That's upto how much you value the fit.

Coming from WF1000XM3s, initially i felt the XM4s sounded inferior. The newer buds come with only foam tips. They sound pretty bad with them is what i felt. Switched to the silicone tips that came with the XM3s and post that they sound much better. With IEMs and TWs, the ear tips are very crucial. Finding the right tip and material can drastically affect or improve the sound.  XM4s have better soundstage, tighter bass, better fit(not perfect) but definitely better than XM3s and improved mic performance. I also own the Sennheiser Momentum TWs (Gen 1) and wifey uses Air pods pro so have tried them and they are great as well. Was infact gonna order the Pros and Sony announced the XM4s. Bottom line, the XM4s are well worth the upgrade. Better sound quality than the Pros and the XM3s.

I'm still using my XM3s and they are going strong. Have no intention of upgrading as these were mainly my flight headphones :( 15k seems a great price for an upgrade though

Damn, my bad. I thought you were talking about the WH-1000XM4. Sony and their naming convention.

About the WF-100XM4s, I love them, the medium ear tips are a perfect snug fit. I face some a 05ms drop-off on the left earbud in the first 5mins of connecting, but it fixes itself after that. Sound quality is sublime! Well worth the price! I picked em up from Dubai for about 15k as well

I always think it's the WH-1000XM4 going for 19k when someone posts a deal here. :cry:

Thanks for the recco. Will check.

I'm an idiot and I bought a JBL Go 3 which doesn't have Aux in. -_-
