Was considering this but read about its RF interference with phones. The previous model e17k don't have that issue afaik. How bad is the rf problem?

I've got the e18 and the radio noise is noticeable when using it with your phone. It's a shame because otherwise it's great, works perfect with my PC. I also got the e07k and it works well, plus its got a few extra things you can do over the e18, similar to the e17k (I returned the e17k alpen 2 because it wouldn't work with my Nexus 6; for whatever reason the older e07k and e17 work fine with Android, but at the time I couldn't find the e17 without it being a ridiculous price).

BH Photo and Video is matching this price (and is available online). They do not charge sales tax outside of NY and BH offers free shipping. Brick and Mortar at this price and would be subject to 8.8% sales tax.

Otherwise, great post OP. Thanks.

Otherwise? According to your post you can buy it online for this price and pay more for shipping or buy it at the store and pay 8.8% tax so no matter how you look at it you can get it cheaper from this deal.

Edit: B&H does offer free shipping...

Nice find but this seems more like a price drop then a sale.
I could be wrong.

Even BH Photo has it for this price.

Thanks - corrected my comment.

Also - while it may be cheaper, I was simply pointing out a more convenient option for those within reach of the b&m store. I'll pay 8 bucks to get it today.

If you listen with good earbuds, they become great. Great earbuds become just, well, exceptional. Hard to go back to listening thru just the Droid.

Do you have any issues with RF interference?

To me, yes.

It goes from being a super slick deal ($300 -> $99) that could be active for a short time to a everybody and their Rakuten brother selling for the same price.

No thumbs down from me, just saying.

I went from hurrying to add to my cart, then seeing all 3rd party sites with the same price.
I held off.

A great price, no doubt, but a "probably a price drop" in the description would help.
