Default Moderate-sized can headphones with built-in player that supports FLAC

First of all, I'm sold on FLAC, have been thru Rio Karma and Cowon i10, both long deceased. I've been suffering with wired headphones for commute and gym for years. I know Bluetooth is the thing now, but the sound quality (for me) is not there yet. But as of 2015 you can make a DAP not much bigger than a quarter, so why not put that into the headphones? (Yes I know it's been done). No wire, no transmission over Bluetooth etc. The DA converter wired directly to the phones. My preference would be medium-sized over-the-ear, not buds and not huge cans. OK, I found some MP3 ones on Amazon. There's even one that supports WAV. Are there player-in-phones ones that support FLAC and have at least 8 GB memory? Under $100 would be nice, but not a deal-breaker. TIA

The only one I know of is the Sony NWZ-WH505 which supports linear-PCM rather than flac. These have been on sale a year or two and never really took off AFAIK.
