Thanks that's what I figured, the cheapies on ebay are fakes...i have been looking at these for a couple years...Bottom line, they are great from everything i have read, the second generation that is. The 1st had its problems but the new ones from early 09 and on have been great in all regards.
I have waited for prices to come down but they have not, i have tried buying like 4 of them off ebay in the $35-$45 range and they never ship and i just end up getting refunded. All the ones from Hong Kong/China are fake if you buy from ebay just FYI.
If i could find a real pair in the $40 range i would buy them in a second!
**EDIT** looks like they have fallen to $45 range on ebay from US sellers, will start looking again
