I see NO One resonded to my post... so I did a little deeper search on this board and somebody had mentioned K&W and Loyalty Audio in Calgary. So I called them both and Loyalty ($125 including GST) showed a lot of willingness to deal. K&W ($149.00+GST) said NO WAY.
At the end, Alberta at Loyalty gave it to me for $20 more than the US price, i.e. $90 +5% GST; My friend also bought the GS80, and that too was $20 more than the US price i.e. $95+20=$115 +GST.
I told him I will advertise the price on the NET and he said no problem.
BTW, I had my iPod with me and we tried both the GS60 & GS80. Personally, I couldn't see any difference. Even without an amp, the 80 was as loud as the 60. The foam on the 80 was also harder and shaped like a cone.
The only other thing I noticed is the cord is too heavy (GS80 is even thicker than the 60...) so this is not going to be to easy to walk around too much, but for me it's usually when I am on the plane or sitting somewhere when I use my iPod. In my car, it is hooked in to my stereo through a harness and it stays there most of the time.
Hey Stevibee, come again? How/where do you put this insulating tape mod?
I saw someone also had added jacks to the earpieces... to remove/replace the cord. any ideas how?
