I think Sony has finally gone insane.

    I don't know what's wrong with Sony, but even at their own store, today they sold me a $229.99 MP3 player for 129.99. On top of that, this MP3 player was already cheap enough to begin with. The headphone that comes with it is equivilent to the one Sony sells for $120. On top of that an MP3 player??? Colour display, FM, and great features Clear BASS, making this possibly the best sonding MP3 player. has 50 hours of battery life. The only let down is the software, but it is well worth it. I felt like I stole it today. [​IMG]
    -Edit, it is 2gb in capacity and has noisecacelling, the Sony NW-s705

    MDR-NC22
    -The thing didn't even come out yet, but MDR-NC11 is $140 CAD, how much do you think this one will be? It is tested to be better than the NC11.

    Especially SONY of Canada, before it's gone, run to a local Sony store!
    I got the 2gb Black version, sorry, it depends on your store. [​IMG]

    nice deal. I read about it before. Cool noise cancelling feature. Best froogle price is $189.00. I would say you did well. 2 Gig is WAY to small for me, but if it is what you are looking for it looks nice.

    I checked online at Sonystyle.ca, not the same as going to the store?

    So what exactly did you do? :S

    For online, I added them to my cart and they were the same price.

    I ran to Sonystyle store today. I ran for about 75km off the military base to buy one. I heard from a friend of mine, didn't believe it until I got one.
    BTW, I think you have to go to a Canadian one. It is 129 CAD so like 100 USD.

    Well, I live in Burnaby, BC and like there's a Sony Store in Metrotown. So do I just tell them I want that model and they automatically sell it to me for 129.99 before taxes? Not just a pricing error in that store?

    No way, the man clearly told me that it was a great deal about 50% off. Ask them how much it is there.

    How about the 4GB one? Know anything about that? Might as well sell my iPod because the battery life is kinda disappointing, and it's the newer 2G Nano.

    Thanks a LOT man! How good are the headphones? I was contemplating whether or not to get the MDR-EX81LP headphones, but I might as well grab this MP3 player, haha!

    As I said, the headphones are amazing.... The NC-22 is an amazing headphone. Especially when combined with this player. With Clear stero and Clear bass.
