eBay measurement mic – DOA

I recently purchased a used MBNM 550 EL measurement microphone on eBay for $99.95.  The mic arrived and I plugged it in yesterday to compare with my other measurement mics. Zero output. Dead On Arrival.

Many times with eBay sellers, it’s like pulling teeth to deal with a situation like this but I was pleasantly surprised to receive this response back from the seller:

“Sorry about that, please keep the item and recycle it or use for parts, I’m sending you a refund now”

I immediately got an eBay message stating I’d been credited the full amount.MBNM 550 EL transaction
