The colorful versions of the Focal Listen Wireless are on sale for the first time....,
If anyone knows how the sound compares to the wired ones, I'd love to know.
I snagged a used but very nice pair of these in purple via ebay for $109...missing cables but the cables are pretty standard.

I have not heard the wired ones, but these are excellent....nicely balanced, musical. The clamp is a bit snug on my huge head, but the earpads are soft and larger than most so they are fully over ear for me. One of my favorite wireless phones. I was surprised because I had some Spirit S earlier which sounded mediocre and were painful for me to wear. I like these a lot, better than my wireless V-Modas and about equal to my Beoplay H4.

I see the more common black are available on eBay new for as low as $151 after the current app coupon. I will not link because the dealer is rated less than 98% positive...but probably not much of a risk.

I love how it says "Free Accessory" but any one you choose increases the price to $229.

I would snatch it up (couple in the FS section here for $160/165) but I jumped on the Galaxy Frontier watch for $199. Spent enough on audio gearz this year lol

B&H has some Blackfry stuff . I noticed the AKG N90q for $700 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1218699-REG/akg_n90q_reference_class_auto_calibrating.html , pretty big discount, mainly because the original price was ridiculous- however they have some cool tech w/ ear-scanning EQ calibration and Tyll had them on top of Innerfidelity's noise cancelling WOF.

Kind of curious myself, though I never like noise cancelling. (Also should note AFAIK these are NOT wireless- work with 3.5mm or USB connection)

Definitely lowest price historically. Good find. They are really.... interesting headphones. They don't quite fit the mold of the usual headphone, but I personally wouldn't recommend.

They've been selling used in the $500 range. I guess $700 isn't too bad if you're into warranties. I left some comments here:
