Yeah that is really cheap! The only price listed for it I can see is £0. I'll take a thousand!

Strange - they said £34.99 on the page I looked at but now it says it is discontinued ... look at the bottom of the page.

Weird thing is they were advertising them today in their email flyer. Maybe they had such a rush they have sold out and can't get any more.

I bought a very similar product off eBay.  Payed about £40 for it inc the postage.  Is one of my all time favourite gadgets and the sound quality is suprisingly good!
