Interesting JR was where i got my Philips SHE5105 for $15, seems like they are clearing all of their philips inventory hmmmmm, give us a heads up next time on crazy deals like that. LoL
But $40 is a crazy price for those uptowns esp since they were just released not so long ago and supposedly sound pretty good.
I know man this sucks, prices on those cheapo sonys are going up by the minute. LoL Good thing I got a pair while they were like $20, phewwww.
Nope have not tried that brown paper towel stuffage, seems too dense but the sound might actually sound better due to the more dense material. Let us know if there are any sonic differences?
