$99 plus free expedited shipping. Amazon's got them for $179.

Edit:

I'm editing this post to first of all apologize to anyone who placed an order for these headphones through my post from Gearbest. They are as shady as they come, and I should have known better than to share a deal with people without having dealt with the vendor before. It will definitely be my last time I ever order from them again or post any deal without having previous experience with a site. I also want people to know that my experience with Gearbest shouldn't deter anyone from buying Bluedio products because the company's reputation of great customer service and quality is legit. Allow me to share my experience with you.

Gearbest had kept extending there ship date everyday by at least 2 days. On the 3rd day, I inquired about why the delays when their website was flashing "Only 41 left" when I ordered, and why despite the "expedited shipping", was my item not sent yet. Here is the trash I got in response:

"Stock and availability shown on this site is for your reference only. While we strive to provide the most accurate and timely stock and availability information,availability information may become out of date and may change between the time you added an item to cart and the time your order is received."

First of all, "reference only"? Seriously? And secondly, The time between adding it to the cart and purchasing it, was probably 30 seconds. Only god knows how long it took for the order to be "received" by them. Out of curiosity and my BS alarms going off, I looked on Bluedio's website and noticed that their manufacturer's warranty states 12 months while Gearbest suspiciously says it is 18. Later that night, I saw a pair of brand new Bluedio Victory's on eBay being put up on auction from Bluedio themselves. I began corresponding back and forth with them about my experience with Gearbest. They confirmed the the manufacturer's warranty is indeed only 12 months. They also asked for the purchase link for the headphones so they can check it out in depth. After sending them the link, they responded back saying they have no idea how Gearbest can offer 18 months and a pricepoint this low. "But rest assured our products from us directly are 100 percent original." Take what you will from that comment about what gearbest is actually selling. I did and canceled my order immediately. I was on the fence between the Victory and the Vinyl Plus from the get go but ended up placing an order for the Vinyl Plus because of the deal. So when I saw the victory on auction from Bluedio's U.S. warehouse (which I believe to be Amazon Fullfillment Center) at $90 with 8 hours left, I put my bid in. I ended up winning them for $112 dollars. This was 1:30am, Friday night on Labor Day weekend. Bluedio had these in front of my door that Sunday afternoon! Customer service already won me over and after I tested the Victory's, I was their number 1 fan. These thing are simply mind blowing. Crisp highs, super clear mids and such a nice tight bass. Couldn't believe these were wireless and they put the Beats and Bose Soundlink 2 (around the ears) to shame. I know sound is subjective but I can't see anyone walking away from these unimpressed. Just outstanding engineering and quality! I would buy these again at the $179 asking price in a heartbeat because it's still a bargain compared to much more expensive and inferior competitors out there who spend their money on marketing instead of R&D. 12 drivers in a set of headphones alone is a great feat, but to balance everything out the way these do is astounding. . I'll end up doing a full in depth review once I burn these in and fully put them to the grind. I highly recommend Bluedio and specifically the Victory's for anyone out there looking for a fun and ironically serious pair of heaphones. But please, for your own good, stay away from Gearbest.

There are various other Bluedios as well. But personally, I've never seen the Vinyl Plus this low,

I'm not sure if I really saw any anker over-the-ear or on-the-ear headphones before but if you're comparing them to the in-ear ankers it's like apples to cucumbers. I can vouch for some of Bluedio's cheaper Bluetooth headsets(T4, R+) though, and those are awesome for their price range. Personally, I feel Bluedio is on there way up from obscurity. Despite the great reviews, I would still be skeptical of $179 set of headphones from a relatively obscure company like Bluedio, but at $99 OTD with an18 month warranty I couldn't resist. I hear their customer service is top notch also.
