I spend a fair amount of time in Germany for work. Am I able to buy new earphones and reclaim the VAT? I keep seeing conflicting information

I would advise contacting the Customs and International trade helpline on 0300 322 9434 with your query.

I would suggest that you need to check what the German rules are for a VAT refund on retail export sales. If you bring the item back yourself check the personal allowance for duty and VAT free . Different allowances apply if the goods come by post or courier.
