thanks for the bump. honestly though, if you still want these i have them. if the only reason your put off is because of the adapter, check out my youtube review i just made of them.
the adapter piece is barely anything. it integrates very well and its not like a huge bulky piece that wouldn't fit in your pocket. then if you get a balanced amp for your portable device, it will already have a built in balanced plug at the end without the adapter. something else has put you off, it couldn't be the adapter piece. please pm me and tell me what so i know for the future. if you think it doesn't sound as good with an adapter, trust me, it sounds amazing. that's why i was weary, but from all the reviews i've read, i knew what i was getting. well it's up to you. i have lowered the price for these to 90 shipped.
