In Aus and the US they are something like $350. From Amazon Japan they are $270, though you'd have to find some way of sourcing them.

Yeah well what can I say I jumped the gun. I was listening to tunes one second and the next nothing. Good to know it was a non issue and I'll be practicing more care with my recharging practices

 

@ a_recording

Love the review I've subscribed and left a comment. Hopefully more people will join in on the thread and a nice discussion will develop. If I were you I'd add the link to your review in your sig below.

Ahaha, well, readership isn't a huge concern for me, otherwise I would have written more reviews. Not really inclined to advertise it other than to those who might already be interested in the XBA-4. I just hope that the one review does encourage other experienced members to take a gamble and give their own impressions. :)

That's the Asian in you speaking!

 

My Dad once said this about buying an oversize jacket, because it was 'better value for money'.

That is my favourite smiley you have used so far, but I'm biased. (Most of you have seen the giant Mao poster I have in my room.)

 

Now if only that smiley had a mole and awful teeth.

Are you kidding? I love KFC. There is one KFC in the city which is busy 24/7, which still does Hot and Spicy. My friends do not understand why I can like really nice fancy food, and absolutely go bonkers over KFC as well.

 

That smiley is a perfect forum avatar.

Really? I've only ever seen the George St. KFC still does it, seemingly because of the sheer concentration of Asians in the city.

 

When I go to KFC I tell them: "Give me the maximum amount of chicken thighs and drum sticks that your policy allows."

For a few yuks I should print out the mouse pad design above and walk into my local WalMart and ask the employees there if they sell that specific design. The look on some of their faces would probably be priceless

Here in the southern US, many of our Walmart employees probably wouldn't get it. That's not to say anything about Walmart employees specifically, but rather that many people here---regardless of occupation---wouldn't get it. 

 

As for KFC, their quality here has plummeted in the last two decades: their chicken seems to be mostly fat, to the point where I have to wonder if it's even chicken, and the skin has no texture but just falls off like it was left in a sauna (I think they do steam cook them now, and that they're pre-fried?) Same with Pizza Hut: they re-heat the "personal pan" pizzas now rather than cooking them to order on site like they used to in the early 90s.
