This is not Prime eligible. It averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 150 customer reviews.

Used AudioQuest Nighthawk Wood Headphones for $350

PS: as usual, avoid making any purchases from “Just Launched” and iffy sellers, and ones that ask you to email them before purchase. Nothing good will come out of these. They intentionally pick lower prices to bait people into biting.
