Those are pretty good prices. WMR headsets are helping to push the cost of ALL VR headsets down. When these headsets were closing in on launch date, the Vive and Rift both dropped prices. I suspect that they'll continue to drop in price over time, under pressure from these "entry-level" WMR headsets.

I myself probably won't get one until a killer app arrives... such as MW5: Mercs. By that time we might be on Gen 2 WMR headsets, maybe I can get something equivalent to the Odyssey for substantially less money.

On the 13th I actually purchased one of the Lenovo Explorer Headsets with Controllers for $199. Already own Oculus Rift, but at $199 really thought this was too good of deal to pass up. Also I think at some point if you own XBOX One X you will get support for Mixed Reality Headsets. it meets all the spec's necessary to uses. S version may not be supported.
