I'd wait. New Air is coming out in a few months, the current Airs will plummet in price.
Get a real cheap notebook/laptop (~100$) to hold him over this BF, then get an Air when the new ones come out. That's what I'm doing.
Also the current ones don't even have a retina display.
Keep an eye on Amazon. If I remember right, they usually have deals on HFi-580 and M50s for BF (the two are the biggest competitors in that headphone class imho). You'll prob be able to snag one ~100$. Just keep refreshing the lightening deals Wed-Mon next week
I grabbed my HFi 580s for about 110 two years back (Current is 170$)
My own question:
Does FiiO have any BF deals?
Looking to snag an E9/E09k
