[DEAD] FAB Starpoint Girls’ Watercolor Backpack with Headphones for $4

This sale ended…

The FAB Starpoint Girls’ Watercolor Backpack with Headphones is currently on sale for just $4.34 at Amazon by Amazon actual with up to three per customer. The listing says headphones are included, but there are no pictures of them, and it does not specify whether they are on-ear or earphones. This is a kids backpack, so I’m assuming it will be kids headphones. There are no reviews of this either.

NOTE: it is an Add-ON item, so you’d need a $25+ order to buy them, regardless of Prime membership status.

Philips SHP1900 Closed Over-Ears for $12

On the budget side of the things, the new condition closed-back over-ear Philips SHP1900 headphones go for $11.75 by a couple of marketplace sellers fulfilled by Amazon, mayhaps the sign of a price bot bidding war. They have just five customer reviews with a 4.1 out of 5 average. They have an “open” headband, and cringeworthy (to some) earpads. It’s a Halloween special 🙂

SHARKK Bravo hybrid electrostatics for $30 w/free S&H

These were on sale a few days ago for $20 but then jumped back to $50. As of the time of writing, the new condition SHARKK Bravo hybrid electrostatics are down again, now going for $30 with free shipping by Breed thru Amazon. These ship directly from BREED, and they are not Prime eligible.

These were a hyped crowd-funding project at the “magical” headphone price of $300, but they disappointment, and their price has been dropping. So this is more of a curiosity/comparison buy, not an attempt at a “silver bullet” headphone 🙂

Used V-Moda ZN In-Ears for $98

The 1-button remote/mic version of the V-MODA Zn In-Ears ias currently available in “Used – Like New” condition (original packaging) for $98~ in multiple listings, sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual.

The 3-button model is nowhere near this low in used condition. In new condition, both models go for $179 each.
