So what you're saying is they are priced properly for no one. Come on!
Wouldn't be the first time. They had to slash the homepod price pretty quick. And retailers have to slash it even further just to get them out of inventory.

$550 is a lot to spend on headphones IMO, but if you do a lot of stuff related to audio might be worth it.
