Philips X2 in-stock NOW (or USED for $270 now)

There is some movement on the Philips X2 availability front. There are multiple used units in-stock at Amazon Warehouse Deals with prices starting at $270 in “Used – Good” condition and going higher for better condition.

Great news for new condition as of 3/31/15, it is in-stock now, and ready to ship, at Amazon.com by Amazon actual at its regular price of $300. Limit five per buyer! Mayhaps they should have a lower limit so “resellers” don’t buy them and then sell them for crazy prices on eBay. This would give “real customers” a chance to buy them. And create more happy Amazon customers.

They don’t have any reviews. They are “Temporarily out of stock”, so shipment date is not certain, however, if you purchase, you lock-in the $14 price. These are likewise available in red. Needless to say, given no reviews and uncertain shipment date, these are perhaps best suited for people who like to boldly go and review and/or compare new and under the radar headphones and such.

Used Sennheiser HD 360 Pro for $26
