i bought a set of brand new tien basics for $670, how much were they used, because i mean if your unsure about what your getting it would of probally been better to just spend the extra $170.

omni will hopefully be available soon....check out the link here and see what you think. They are much better than the tein basics and cost less. If you are interested vote in the second thread here for them so we can get them in production.

Omni Write-Up

not necessarily better....but from that writeup it seems that for the same price or even a little less of the tein basics you can get a product that more closely compares to the tein SSP which is a much higher end than the basic (adjustable dampening, pillowball mount etc) and i have heard nothing but good stuff about omni...i couldn't justify spending more on the teins when I could get more of a product for less money but I don't know their quality first hand on either so I can only speak on what I have been told/read.

i bought my teins from an online store based out of AZ heres the number if your interested 1-888-766-0022, shipped to Northen Cali they where $687, there listed for $750, but let them know that you were sent by a previous buyer who got them for $687

Omni i heard is really good to, the problem with them is that the release date is unknown
