    less than half price ??? Less than whose half price?
    As far as I can see BeckenBower are for all intents and purpose an ebay only product with an advert claiming that they are half price...

    OP
    with regards to "known" brands on ebay, I would be very dubious purchasing via the ebay route ....

    erm, im not sure where they get the 'half price' from

    but I bought a pair for £15.99 off amazon and the sound quality is pretty good for the price hence why i thought i'd recommend them to the OP

    I cannot find them on Amazon ... only from a re-seller on amazon ...

    They seem to be an "ebay brand" to me ...

    In general "ebay brands" are non-brands straight from China, stamped with a logo and then offered at "half price" ..... enough said....

    I think you are still missing the point a little .
    What is your reference point with regards to quality?
    Big name brands have been well tested and reviewed, and to a degree you know in advance what you are getting...
    e.g. Goldring, Sennheiser, Denon, BD, Etymotic, Sound Magic etc ..
