the gold connections and special shielding is a marketing ploy and to keep on marketing that crap they have to jack up their prices
this might be just for cables, but i'm starting to see more and more monster crap
i'm completely happy with going to a photography store where they sell lense cleaning stuff, and microfiber clothes for alot less
and you can go to the sunglass store like rockinfella2k said
anyway sorry for the rant, just don't buy monster anything
agreed..monster products are marked up a lot, just like any other cable/wiring company, or even media company..
that's the name of the business.. market your product with unique designs/features and charge higher prices, its called business. I don't like it, but if you were on the other side, you'll be just happy with it.
If the product is good, and the customer is willing to buy and pay for it, then there's no problem with it. If the product sucks or does not function as advertised, no one would purchase it and Monster and other like companies would be driven to the ground, but so far Monster is still around. Look at all other technology products..most people buy name brand items and not "no-name" generic brands such as great quality from Fry's or something..marketing is what drives business and brand recognition
What is more unfair is the market on soda fountain drinks at your local fast food restaurants, gas stations, 7-11's, etc. My uncle used to own a gas station and the soda fountain machines were like a gold mine..the mark-up is way more than 80-85%...now that is a true money-maker
now back on topic:
i would suggest going to an optometrist's office to get this solution along with a nice microfiber towel, it'll probably be cheaper
