NoHad purchased it less than 6 months back and mainly used it for HL: Alyx and a few standalone games. It is the UK version and doesn't have any warranty.

As a standalone VR headset, it is technically better than the Quest 2 in every way as it has a higher FoV and resolution pancake lens with more RAM and higher clocked SoC with much better battery life.
The link below provides a spec comparison:

For PCVR, the lens is still better than Quest 3 and as the SoC processing doesn't matter, it provides a better experience.

Pico store works despite TikTok ban, though I made purchases from the mobile app using Thai VPN where prices are cheaper, as there is no Indian store. You can also "sideload" almost all the apps available on the Pico store on to it as well though I cannot link that over here.

I will also include the purchased accessories which includes a lens cover and a carrying case. I have the original box as well but that is too large to ship, so would prefer to ship it in the current case.

YesUsed it with a laptop SSD for a couple of years and it does reduce the temperature by several degrees. Had used only one thin thermal pad during installation but cannot find the package containing the other thermal pads. Hence, this is enclosure only while pads will have to be purchased separately as per your SSD.

YesHad purchased it under an Asus promo offer along with an Asus laptop and hence the lower invoice price. 1 year warranty should be applicable as invoice is present. Pricing it between offer price and retail price for mutual benefit.

NABaseus 65W GaN34/5 1650YesPurchased 1-2 years ago. It is able to provide 65W power over a single Type-C port though power distribution changes depending on which ports are used (mentioned in product link). Cable is not included. Also from experience, compatibility depends on the cable and device in use.

Need help of TE mods and members for an issue.
I received the JBL Xtreme speakers and found a flaw with them. As soon as I increase the speaker beyond 60% ( as one does in testing, right? ) They switch off. (This happens in battery mode) ...
Now the seller (edit: name removed on sellers request) (t3chg33k) has not mentioned this problem in the thread and giving him the benefit of doubt, (he claims he listens at low volume in background) maybe the seller was not aware of the problem.Maybe.
I mentioned this in WhatsApp chat, sent him videos of the issue and the seller has agreed to take them back...now here lies the issue and my question.
1) Seller is asking we split the shipping charges. I am of the opinion seller should bear entire to and fro charges as the product wasn't adequately tested before shipping. (Am I the only one who does to find and mention every issue with my sale item?)
2)Seller demands that the product be shipped first and then he will pay. I find that to be disrespectful. I checked his trust score, (which he mentions many times in his chats) and paid him the entire asking amount before he even booked a courier. (As is the norm in TE).

So guys, please let me know. Should courier charges be split? Should I ship first and then wait for the money to arrive?

I don't want to create a thread for such a petty issue. But if this post doesn't get enough views, I might and even create a poll. (The amount is irrelevant, I want to know what is the right approach in a matter like this.)
Oh, or another option?...just provide a negative feedback, dump the speaker and forget about the money I spent.

To clarify my standpoint, I tested the speaker by playing it as recently as end of December on battery alone for over 9 hours. I charged the speaker completely prior to it and also tested it using the adapter. I checked it using the aux port and also bluetooth.

For the volume, I played it at a level that I normally do at home. Since I usually have a higher volume set at source, it is quite possible I never needed to set the speaker volume at very high levels which I accepted. One can hypothetically argue that may be there was some damage during transit or the buyer operated the speaker in a manner that caused an issue with the aged battery. Keeping the what-ifs aside, I agreed to take the item back as the buyer has a use case specifically for the battery, though the speaker works fine on AC.

I had agreed to a price of 5k for the speaker +150 for 50% shipping, and paid the rest of the shipping cost myself which included an insurance premium as I don't fully trust Borzo (Wefast) delivery people to not "lose" the package. It is thus about 500-600 for 2-way shipping and hence I asked for a 50-50 split as a mutual loss, as there was also no agreement on a testing warranty beforehand. Normally, when someone asks for proof, I take and share videos of the product prior to shipping which I didn't in this case as there was no such request. A bit before his post, I also offered to arrange the pickup tomorrow and refund him an amount of 4950 immediately on receiving the same, so that his loss is about 200, while I will be losing something in the region of 400 myself.

I did state the precedence of ecommerce returns, where the refund isn't processed till the item is received and checked, as the accepted process, though the buyer disagrees on that front.

I think both the buyer and seller should sort the thing in their own personal comfort mutually.
Since this hasn't settled yet, I would personally suggest that the buyer and seller should share one-side(return) shipping charges.

Why Seller?
Because the seller now has a defective product(either it was not detected earlier/broken during transit/known issues/or whatever the reason be) which would cost him money for his future sale or live with it.

Why buyer?
Because the buyer hasn't mentioned any warranty on the speaker neither testing warranty so operational mishap is a probability and yet the seller accepted to take-back the product.

About the refund issue I think post courier pickup refund shouldn't be an issue, since he already agreed to refund you.

Trust should be reflected everywhere, seller might have packed you a non-functional one and claimed a transit accident or the buyer could probably return an identical faulty speaker to seller, lots of probability buy there should be one outcome... mutual trust and understanding.

I hope both of you sort this asap. Happiness everywhere.
 
In addition to the original offer, I also offered to refund him the 150 he paid as the shipping cost in case he wants to keep the speaker and use it with the AC adapter or on battery at lower volume (mind you I generally listen at 70+ dB as per my smart watch which in itself is pretty loud) or change the battery at a later date.

He is however being stubborn and not willing to accept any of the options I have already provided, for which my losses are more than his.

Very gracious of you to deduct 150 rupees as compensation for a defective product . Thanks for suggesting I use portable speakers wired all the time and also to use party speakers @ 50 percent volume.

Would you have reduced 150 more if the bluetooth was not working or one side of the speaker was defective?

All these options are well suited to you. I provided you the option of even going to service centre and getting the battery checked. But you already knew that could cost 2k up and said you didn't think it was worth getting replaced.
Since I usually have a higher volume set at source, it is quite possible I never needed to set the speaker volume at very high levels which I accepted.
I don't even understand what you are trying to say.

I think you should return the product, split the shipping charges and be done with it. It's not a big deal. Why fight over a couple of hundred rupees?
 
I agree that the shipping charges should be split. The seller is a respected member, and I have no qualms that the money will be refunded once the item is received back.

While I understand the buyer's stance as well, this is a minor issue, and can easily be resolved amicably.
 
As stated above, issue has been resolved amicably.

The curious thing is that the first thing I did on receiving it was play a track at full blast. Did so for only one track since it goes up to 110 dB at full volume which is enough to deafen somone standing close to it but the speaker didn't shut down.

It seems from Poga's experience there may be some scenario that causes excessive power drain from the battery causing it to shut down, but I cannot replicate it yet.

I am not officially listing it again but if anyone is interested knowing its issues, then they can let me know as otherwise I intend to keep it now.
 
@t3chg33k - have you tried playing bass heavy songs - apparently that's one of the triggers
The bass in itself is so overwhelming that I think I will get complaints from my neighbours if I play a bass-heavy song. Joking aside, I just played the first song that came up on my YouTube Music screen when I opened the app, which was Tattoo by Loreen. But will try something more bass-y with windows closed.

Most may not know it but the speaker actually has a function where if you press the ‘Bluetooth’ and ‘Volume -‘ buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds, it tones down the bass for a neutral frequency response. I actually listen to most of my songs that way.
