KEF M100 In-Ears for $29 w/FS (all colors now)

Now all four colors of the KEF M100 in-ears are on sale for $29 with free shipping at NewEgg. The Titanium color scheme already had free shipping, but as of this recheck, the other three colors are also getting free shipping (it used to be $5 flat shipping instead). The Titanium sale ends on Monday night. The other three color schemes don’t mention an expiration date.

Speaking of KEF, Amazon has a limited time sale on the KEF Q100 Bookshelf Loudspeakers – Black Oak (Pair) for $249 with free shipping with up to four sets per customer. This is an old fashioned sale, not a lightning deal.

20% off Monolith Amps (3×200 and 2×200)

Monoprice has a new coupon, 20BURR gets you 15% off orders of $200+ in eligible products until Saturday night with the usual coupon restrictions they have over there.

Not eligible for the coupon are all their planar-magnetic headphones (I tested them all, M300, M560, M565, M1060). Also not eligible for the coupon are the following two headphones which are on sale on their own and get free shipping on their own:

+ Sonic Solace ANC/BT Over-Ears for $50 in Black or Tan/Brown

+ Triple XXX in-ears for $35

But that’s not all, they have a 20% off sale on two Monolith Amps (3×200 and 2×200). This is an old fashioned sale, no coupon code. These are not dedicated headphone amps.

Fender In-Ears Line-Up Sale: DXA1 for $40, FXA2 for $99, FXA5 for $149, FXA6 for $199 [updated]

The whole Fender in-ears line-up is on sale again, with free shipping, at Adorama. No coupon, no rebate, just add to the shopping cart and proceed to checkout. As usual, this is a limited time offer, this time with new lower prices (since the previous sale):

Speaking of Adorama, they are offering the Korg B1 88 Key Digital Piano with Enhanced Speaker System & Hammer Action for $299 after you enter coupon code Blackfirdy (that’s the coupon spelling) in the shopping cart. You can test the coupon by just entering the coupon and an email address in the checkout page. You don’t have to fill up the whole checkout page or login.

PSA: download your Groove Music Purchases by 12/31/17

The ghost of Zune has killed Microsoft’s Groove. Or more realistically, Microsoft’s cascading failures 🙂 Regardless, you have until December 31st in 2017 to download all your previously purchased Groove music to your own devices. There are reasonable chances some titles may not be available for download.

About 5% of the albums I had purchased were no longer available in Groove because of licensing issues (or some other nonsense), thus I could not download them. Another reason to “trust” cloud music e-stores! I don’t know what the steps are to recover the unavailable music or at least get a refund – or if there are any steps. Googling may have some answers but I haven’t bothered to do so yet 🙂

If you have the “Groove Music Pass” subscription, they are co-operating with Spotify so you can transfer your playlists and such to the Spotify service. The deadline for this is January 31st in 2018. I believe they are offering refunds for prepaid subscriptions after 2017.

Blue Mic LOLA headphones + Blackout Yeti Mic for $141

I don’t know who the Ninjas in Pyjamas are, but you can thank them for this very nice bundle! For $141 you can get the Blue Mic LOLA headphones + Blackout Yeti Mic. The LOLA are Blue Mic’s wired unpowered un-ANC un-bluetooth headphones. Old fashioned headphones. The Mic on its own goes for $90, and the headphones go for $250. This is subtraction by addition 🙂

This is sold and shipped by Amazon actual, not iffy marketplace sellers. Here name was Lola, she was a Yeti 🙂 Screenshot below:

This offer went for $144 when I first spotted it on 11/23/17 and has been flying under the radar since.

PS: this is eligible for 10% statement credit if you pay with a Prime credit card (Chase VISA or Prime Store credit card).
