The X1 has been gold-boxed on amazon for $150, so if you are patient & vigilant you might be able to find em really cheap. the he-400 has been discounted to $300 in preparation of the new he-400i ($500ish probably).

 

Unless you are in a rush, I would wait a few months before buying anything.

I would not go that far, but vocals are not it's strong suite...
