I looked at those, but without having the detailed specs and reading through the reviews, a couple people mentioned they weren't very loud. Of course that is definitely subjective :)

We do have something similar, but it's the Middle East so there isn't much market for electronics. It's mostly full of cell phones and places to rent.
