    well I'm in for one at that price. We'll see if they honor it. Hell, for 30 day return or just selling it on eBay or HF, what the hell.

    Yep, same experience here. Monoprice tells me, "When we take your order at Monoprice.com we have every intention of fulfilling it. Unfortunately our system had the incorrect price listed for Product #33305 and we are unable to fulfill the order." They ended the email by writing: "Thank you for shopping at Monoprice.com. We hope you come back soon!" Not bloody likely. Edit: actually, it's not a big deal beyond the initial disappointment; it's easy to make mistakes in sales listings online, and there are bigger things to worry about.

    The way they do their pricing, it's not like it was even for sure that it was a mistake. They're a pretty weird shop.

    Maybe it'll go on sale for an actual reasonable sale price sometime. It was kinda on perpetual 600 dollar sale for a while, but there's stuff I'd rather buy at that price too.

    Was probably meant to be $165 off, not $165 final price. That would be just a smidge over a 20% discount.

    I really like the Galaxy Buds Live. Like you, I can't do IEM's but these are extremely comfortable for portable listening. I use them walking the dog, doing stuff around the house and making phone calls. There are two different sizes of rubber fins included, and when I went to the larger one they really locked into place well. I really like being able to fully hear my surroundings too.

    Thanks for the impressions, sounds like they might be the ticket to fill the void in my lineup!

    I am putting together a cheapo system for a friend and bought an Audioquest Beetle for $25 on eBay (they are $40 from Audioquest via Amazon if you prefer that route.) The DAC is Meh or maybe Meh+ but I was surprised to see that the wall wart is claimed to be a linear power supply!

    I am not going to take the time to a/b with my iFi iPower, but if 5v 500mA 2.5W (with a micro USB connector output) meets your needs, might be worth picking up.
