You are going to get plenty of red for including a CC signup bonus in your calculations.

OK with me. If you don't have a Sony CC yet, you get the $100. Plus it is a no annual fee card.
If I pay it off right away, it will actually improve my credit score.
Without the CC deal, still a good deal. Normal lowest price I can find is $264 from MacMall.

So, that's what it cost me. I guess YMMV.

Ordered on Tues 02/12/13. Scheduled for delivery by FedEx ground on Fri 02/15/13.
Shipped from CARSON, CA.
I'll report back when they arrive and give a quick review.

So in order to get the 105.63 price, I need to sign up for a new credit card and then immediately cancel it? Isn't that kind of shady? Doesn't this look bad to people who want to issue me future credit? Won't my FICO take a hit potentially much greater than the $100 I save using this shady tactic?

So using the same logic - Let's all open a new "Chase: Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Card" - This rewards card from Southwest Airlines offers a sign-up bonus of 50,000 points, which translates to $830 in plane tickets. You can then just cancel the card immediately after you get the points, what a deal! To hell with my credit, who needs a car loan or mortgage anyway?

You don't have to cancel the card. It is a no annual fee card. If you pay it off, it'll actually improve your credit score. And there is no cost to you to hold the card.

I'm sorry, is this a post about headphones, or about a new credit card? The way I see it, the topic should be changed to: Sony MDR-NC500D Noise Canceling Headphones $205.63

Credit card deals should be posted here: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/

I'll post a review of the Headphones once they arrive, which should be tomorrow according to FedEx tracking.
Like I said, my cost was $105.63.
YMMV.

On FedEx vehicle for delivery

I'll report back after they are delivered and give a review.

These arrived this morning and I have to say, they are well worth the $106!
The noise cancellation is superb! No high pitched distortion or hiss from the cancellation.
Sound quality is also very good.
Headphones have a built in rechargeable battery. Also can be powered by the included AA battery adapter. 2 AA batteries included. Comes with 2 different length 1/8" cables, 1/8" to 1/4" adapter, 1/8" to airplane adapter, AC charger and case.
A few drawbacks:
Cannot play sound without the noise cancelling on and therefore cannot play sound without power (either from the internal battery or from the external batteries)
Foam is a bit stiff but I think it will soften over time.

All in all they are a great buy for $106!

Not only that...they are junk. Introducing anything to sound is an abomination.

Suit yourself guy. I travel frequently and having noise cancelling headphones on the airplane is a godsend!
But, to each their own!

This from the user guide:
Magnesium and 7075 aluminum are used as the material for the housing and the headband, respectively.
By using these unstintingly, the mass is reduced to as small as 195 g

I hope you were able to cash in on this deal!
I got my card statement today and the $100 credit appeared 5 days after purchase.
I did not have to pay the bill and then wait for a credit.
So, total paid before FWCB was $115.64

Anyhow, Sony.com price is back up to $399.99
