Mini-ITX has become quite small.  This can easily fit into a backpack or something similar

For portable use around the house. Not the intended purpose, but a bonus. There've been times in the past having a laptop was useful to bring to others' houses, I could do the same given its size. I think its 13" x 11" x 7".

(please buy it... or I might be tempted again... lol)

 

Great headphones... vastly underrated. Seems like it's sold out now. How much were they going for?

post #5525 of 7151

I think its still available. $358 used is a good price. Says there's 1 left.

post #5526 of 7151

it's been at 358 for a few days now, I was waiting for the price to drop further. lol. :~

Recyclebiz on ebay may accept an offer of $385 for a sealed pair :) They're an authorized dealer.

True but, you would still need a monitor or something as well.   And a power source.  Wouldn't a laptop be a bettter choice if you planned on lugging it around in a bag?

Performance vs cost, this is cheaper, and supports more things I have than a laptop can. Plus you can plug into someone's TV.

Also, I have tablets for other purposes.

I went into a local Canadian Sony Store and bought a pair of XBA-H3 and while the shelf price said $349 the computer actually came up as $249 so they appear to be having a skunk works sale of the H3 going on. Not sure if this nation wide but it is definitely worth checking out just in case.

I actually got very lucky because the salesman had agreed to give $25 off when we thought the price was $349 and he still gave me theb$25 off so I only paid $225 for mine plus tax. After 2 accidental washing machine incidents with IEM's this year I ended up buying a 2yr accidental replacement warranty for $50 as well which is transferable if ever sell these in Canada.

Wow, great deal on the XBA-H3 you stumbled into.

I also got myself a pair from Amazon for $249. Actually had to pay tax on top of that.

They are a very nice sounding IEM! The sound is so big and smooth. There's something mezmerizing in the way it handles vocals.

They are still burning in, so I look forward to them settling even more.

I normally shy away from spending too much more than $200 on IEMs (probably a psychological barrier), but so far these have been worth it.

Thanks to OP for posting the deal!

Well, it's been shipped. Will it be a rock or something else????

Not to burst your hope, but it probably at least will be something with the density of a rock :D  I've fallen for similar "too good to be true" scams on ebay before, for example a Colorfly C3 for $30 bucks where the seller shipped me an empty microsd holder to buy time.  That's what the seller is most likely doing in this case, buying time to get that 100 bucks out before amazon and whatever local authorities shut them down.  Its just irritating that the same scam permeates through different web sites year after year, and someone keeps on getting away with it...

I fully expect it to be a rock. However, the storefront was only up for a day with all items listed at $100 including items not worth a $100. Next day it was down. The purchase was completely thru the amazon store, which means it's fully protected with amazon's a-z guarantee. So it will be interesting to see how quickly amazon issues a refund.
