Bone Conduction - Guardian Equip

Anyone know current pricing for Guardian Speaker Mic and Bone Conduction equipment, http://www.guardian.innotech.com.au/pro ... tAccessory ? Last I knew this stuff was very expensive. Their website has no price list which might indicate it's still very expensive (?).

In my case it works simplex or duplex (any repeater). It's interesting but the scan thing is a pain but creating a new personality and not enabling DVRS you could get some scan back but lose the 3beep.
