Yeah, the price on the site and the exchange rate have been bouncing around a little, and I won't speak for my currency converter (Mac widgets... Ehh).
I bought my IE80s from amazon.de, and had a friend in Germany ship them out - I guess if you knew someone in Japan that would be an option.
As for me, I may be travelling to Japan sometime next year, so assuming no other new high-end IEM catches my fancy, I'd buy my set from there. I reckon 680 US (correct at the time of posting) is a pretty good price.
