Perhaps all hope is not lost..

Don't worry, we don't go out much. :S
My friend, oh which who just bought Beats IEM's two weeks ago tried my HE-500's. I've gotten him into EDM and the likes, and he loves my headphones. He asked where can he get them and for how much. When I said $650, he asked if I meant $65 by mistake. Nope. He wants to buy my old HFI-580's though, as he has a $100 budget :)
