This is mkubota1 "in the Happy Place" as he likes to call it at one of the electronics stores:     Here is Jude with his mind completely blown the first time he visited e-earphone in 2011:  
Build from diyaudio group buys some time ago, it is fully functional and completely stock. In the picture the front panel screws are in a snaplock bag taped to the top of the unit to save repeated insertion and removal. I'll include the stock charger as well, but no batteries.    Shipping will be $11 to Asia, $15 to ConUS and $18 to Europe for EMS with tracking. Add 4% for Paypal.
