Maybe you can find them in the Head-Fi classifieds forum for cheap or something. They're worth it for the bass aficionado on the go, in my opinion (I loaned them from a friend for a few weeks). Their only major flaw is basically that they don't really isolate - but since they're vented so much, they deliver a bass that might be even slightly better than the VB, and the rest of the frequency range is a bit more refined as well. But yeah: as always with audio stuff, a $100-200 increase in price brings you a 10% increase in performance, if at all.
