This is model XTR3M3-T34M for those who have photographic memory 🙂

Prices range from $40 to $102. These are not 13 distinct models, as some of them are offered in different color scheme options. Some of the truly-wireless are the more stubby kind, others are the Airpod-style (with the hanging monkey tail).

I have one 1More here for unboxing and testing but it’s not one of those on sale above; it’s a necklace-style bluetooth…

PS: by “necklace-style” I mean those bluetooth earphones that have a cable that is not hardened like the neckbands…

Back In-Stock: Koss KPH30i Clear for $30

If you are trying to find the Clear version of the open lightweight Koss KPH30i, as of the time of writing, the Clear version is shown as in-stock at Amazon’s website, sold by the Koss Amazon store. Note that these will ship from Koss, not from an Amazon facility (no Prime shipping).

Check in the shopping cart to see what the shipping estimate might be since Amazon itself won’t be the one shipping item.

Saturday: AmazFit Powerbuds truly-wireless for $56

A sale of Amazfit smartwatches and fitness bands and such at Amazon also includes truly-wireless earphones from AmznFit. They have three different color schemes of their PowerBuds model going for $55…

Note that both the overall customer rating and the customer reviews are a superset of all the different products that reside on the same root product page. To find the reviews specifically for the earphones you have to go to the detailed review page for each color scheme and filter for its reviews (under the “All Formats” option)…

But that’s not all for the Saturday April 10 (2021) Amazon USA Gold Box. Their headliner deal of the day is the new condition JBL Flip 4 waterproof bluetooth speaker going for $60 with free US shipping. This is available in eight different color schemes, handy if multiple people use them in the same household – you can quickly tell who owns what by the color scheme!

Etymotic ER2-SE studio edition IEMs for $79

IEM fans, for a limited time, Amazon actual is having a sale on the new condition Etymotic ER2-SE studio edition IEMs going for the very specific price of $78.86 with free US shipping.

This is not a lightning deal, so it’s either an “organic” sale” or some kind of a price match and such.

As of the time of writing these average 4.2 out of 5 based on 69 customer ratings. They have the characteristic triple flange (plus other eartip options) and the cable is detachable.

I haven’t seen or touched them yet, so I have no personal opinion.

Samson SR-80B Semi-Open Over-Ears for $25 w/FS {ends Sat PM}

Budget semi-open action at the B&H Photo daily deals and this offer runs until 4/10/21 at 11:59pm eastern or earlier if sold-out.

Up to six pairs per customer at the sale price…

This is one that can be called a studio headphone, a very basic one without modern amenities, but look at the price 🙂

As of the time of writing it averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 62 customer reviews over there, and 4.6 out of 5 based on 4100+ ratings at Amazon

And as fate would have it, we have a text and pictures unboxing of the original color scheme. The cable is not detachable…

+ QuietPlus ANC over-ears for $56

+ two airpod-style truly wireless for $40 to $56

+ and the big star of the show/sale, the Tribit FlyBuds 3 with a charging case that promises 100 hours (!) of playback time. Plus it can be used as a small powerbank (more of interest to smaller DAPs and DACs, today’s smartphones are very hungry for 2600 mAh). The sale price is a very solid $29 with up to five per customers…

As of the time of writing these average 4.5 out of 5 based on 3100+ customer ratings. They are IPX8, bluetooth 5 with low latency, and three sizes of earfins (in addition to the six eartip options). They also promise pairing the moment you open the case, which if working so, simplifies truly-wireless life.

I am planning to buy the FlyBuds 3, so at some point in the future expect an unboxing and review post…

Monday: Beyerdynamic DT 770 (80 ohm) for $134 AC

+ I’m thinking of getting one of the 100-hour-ish TW (not this one) and will be posting unboxing and review ~ in the nebulous near/distant future 🙂

At the risk of sounding like a master of the obvious, the product name slightly hints that these are might just be bassy, very bassy, extremely bassy, explosively bassy. I personally haven’t seen or heard them or read about them, so I cannot comment 🙂
