    Are they serialed / complete? X serialed command more than non or refinished, and complete always is worth more...

    many of them yes,all of them that I saw were not refinished but OEM x metal finish...just got another ruby juliets off ebay for 250 usd like new,but the serial was J so I guess X metal/black combo...but recently I saw couple of X serialed on ebay for uder 300 usd....
    I think people are now after Carbon/black combo or plasma and wanna get rid of these....

    Juliets are generally cheap right now, but that's a good thing right?

    The second generation of XM/Ruby was a J serial - see o-review list. I honestly can't see anyone falling out of favour with this particular combo so it's maybe just the time of year.

    I prefer them to other styles of Juliets. I'll probably trade off my 1. gen Plasma for X-metal Juliets since I prefer the X-metal finish to the plasma. I love Ruby for looks, but I mostly use my OO BIP X-metal Juliet these days since I prefer the view with these.

    Juliet prices are down in general, and there are a lot of factors that go into what a particular pair will sell for on ebay. I really can't say I've noticed that combo being sold at a discount lately beyond what other pairs have been going for.

    I just bought a pair of Juliets with x-metal frame and ruby lenses. It has red ear socks, red temple shocks, and black nose pads. I'm looking forward to seeing them in person.

    They are my all time favorites, I love them and have two pairs. I have one 1st gen XM Penny with the deep dark ruby lenses. Wish those old school lenses would come back. The only way to really get them is if you find them with a frame.
