The Philips L1 is $299 - supposedly they're out now.
Oh, regarding Sony - the MDR-Z1000 is listed as $499, not $735, and the new XBA-NC85D is also listed as $499 (it's an ANC 4-driver BA universal fit IEM). The SA5000 was $699, but is no longer listed on the Sony America website (it's still on the Sony JP website, for something like 77,000 yen; I think it's the most expensive product on the Sony JP website as a headphone - other candidates for that honor include the PFR-V1, MDR-7520 (Z1000 Pro), and EX1000 IEMs). Not sure what they actually intend to be "top of the line" overall or if they even intend for human minds to be able to follow their reasoning.
You might also include the Zalman ZM-RS6F or FM, it's $59.99 list and around $40 street; no idea if you're including "surround" sets though.
Yes I'm really bored.
There's another new company, RedGiant, that has its flagship dual-dynamic in-ear, the A03 Ossicle, at ~$149 USD.
Hmm, I don't see the A03 listed yet. Are you still verifying retail prices? But yes, the drag coefficient thing is interesting. I thought it was pure marketing, but they actually told me when I sat down with them that they were designed specifically to minimize wind noise.

Actually, I think Aurisonics' TOTL monitor is the AS-1, whose 'b' variant, with ambient and bass ports, is an extra $200 over the base $399, so the listing should perhaps be an AS-1b at $599...
