In for three. Head-fi does indeed have a lot of good to say about these. I'm weak to hype, what can I say?
I previously bought 2 of them on Aliexpress, one for the wife and one for myself. I'd say they're worthy of the hype and then some, certain people find them to be a let down because after reading the reviews they forget to put it into perspective and expect these to sound like $300 open full sized headphones or something which they do not. They do however compete with $50-100 IEMs EASILY though, in my opinion.
Plus the fact I find most IEMs to be quite uncomfortable to wear mean I value these that much more - I use the Oppo PM3s outdoors most the time but during the hot Summer those become unwearable and that's where the Monks come in and save the day in striking fashion.
That said, on top of the 2 black ones I already own I'm in for 7 of these, will probably keep 2 for the house as backup and then give the others away to friend and family. Funny because the shipping to Europe is actually more expensive than the earbuds themselves but it's still like 65 bucks for 7 pairs of these, impossible to say no.
