Actually, reseller prices for the US are really low. Supposedly Needle Doctor stopped being a Stax distributor since they only get %15 cut on each headphone they sell....and it's hard to have a 30 day return policy with such low cuts. So don't expect prices in the US to come down at all unless the Yen crashes, which is extremely unlikely since they pretty much have no inflation over there.
Welcome to the era of US dollar devaluation. A buck fifty per Euro, 92 Australian cents per US dollar, and 95 Canadian cents per US dollar. Shocking how the mighty have fallen, but we got Osama, so who cares if our currency is turning into toilet paper - we're still No. 1 in commando operations!
