Why are Earbuds so expensive?

For 400 Baht?

They were set at 1298 baht, but there was a Lazada payday special, so for 417 Bhat I could not say no.  They are refurbished, I have no issues with them, as they work flawlessly. I can afford to throw $100 to USD and upwards if I feel like it, but IDGAF if they die after a year.

Thailand or China doesn't matter, You must be brain death if you believe that a 400 Baht Beats 3 is original refurbished.

 

Any way, you lost all credibility long time ago. Didn't you live in the multi million dollar penthouse?

Still do, I can afford to live where I want, and I do not complain one bit, just choose what to spend my money on. Photos from 2 of the three balconies yesterday morning, sinrise off one side and the moon off of the other.

Only asked, as i wondered how you walk around the house, when you live in a condo.

 

Have used them now for a week.  Good sound off of my Lenovo Thinkpad, can walk around the house and they stay connected even in the bedrooms.

 

Well, behind a keyboard anyone can pretend to be someone else.

135 SqM Condo, so 1,450 SqFt roughly with 3 balcony's and 2 large bedrooms, along with the large living room and my office den space.  I know Penthouse living is not for everyone, I choose to live where I do, and enjoy what I can.  Some folks don't just spend money to prove they have it.  Could not stand to be cooped up in a box of a condo, or live in a house again, where you need to drive everywhere to go places.  I can walk out, get on MRT if needed, ride my Xmax 300 or drive the car if I want.  Does it really matter.  Yes folks can say whatever they want about where they live.  I have posted many photos before and It is not to hard for anyone to find out the location.

Don't know how many times I have to say it, but the ones bought at Mr DIY, Big C or 7/11 are expensive for what they are. Same as if you were asked to pay 200 baht for a box of matches, Capiche?

Come on.. $6 expensive?

 

Perhaps you wouldn't have to explain/defend yourself so often if you had written this a topic header..

 

Why are cheap earbuds such <deleted>?

I have bought from Lazada, many, many times, and the corded models are junk and still around 200 baht.

You are actually right, I looked and I found low quality ones start at around B30. 
Average quality about B200. And there is no guaranty of sound quality. 
perhaps you better buy a few pair of those Bluetooth rechargeable earbuds. Their sound quality is not bad. I have bought about 20 pair of those as gifts for friends and took them to LA last time. I bought them about B100 a pair from Lazada.

 It's all relative, try and grasp it.

And this has what to do with the subject?

Try looking up the reference......it works for everyone else, if they are interested or can be bothered.

simply , just for the money.

A brand of perfume costs 6 dollar to make , all in. They sell it for 50 dollar. Ktsjing

Levi jeans are made in China, costs 40 dollar, they come to usa and they label it with levi, ktsjing 300 dollar

They all do so. Nike was even one using kids for cheap making. ktsjing.
