I've actually opened one up, and it's not nearly as simple as it looks.
Under the plastic cover is a whole mess of very odd looking electronics,
all sealed under a jelly. There is a second set of electronics hidden

impossible to disassemble without destroying at least a few of the above
$360 sounds very steep. I think I heard $260 or so for one recently.
Check around some more. Sounds like you're still being taken for a ride.
