I've been scheming for a deal on the N40 since you first mentioned that deal you got way back when. Either so few people buy them, or everyone that does keeps them forever (or both). Used are impossible to find, and there's no deals (like open box) on any of them.
Glad to know the Pioneer is a (considerably) cheaper alternative! I'll keep my eyes out for a pair.
Razordogaudio has another pair on eBay for the same price they were asking for when I got them from them. I just low balled them and took their offer of $20 off asking.
The N40 are more vivid but the Pioneer are no slouch. The Pioneer sound great out of my M3 but didn't notice too much difference when out of the Opus, will have to do more listening, haven't gone balanced yet either. The N40 though require a quality source to sound their full potential
