You are somewhat correct. The plain, black. matte ones are just slightly over 200 USD (a piece). The satin silver and the high gloss black (SW-HGL) are just under 300 USD (a piece). And yes, there is a bit of labor involved.

Ps. If anybody wants, I will be swapping mine for the high gloss blacks (currently backordered) as soon as they are available and will have a pair of satin silver (aluminum) ones for sale. PM me if interested.
