It’s Black Friday pricing revisited for the new condition open-closed planar-magnetic Monoprice M560 on-ears, going for $150 with free standard US shipping. They are not eligible for the coupon CALM18 which is 20% off orders of $150+. I have tested other Monolith products, and as usual, they are not eligible for the coupon either. The coupon expires Saturday night.

Speaking of Monoprice, they had a Big Bang of Headphone products revealed at CES 2018, including closed-back planar magnetics, a new line of studio headphones (Stage Right), and a variety of DACs and amps, from the tiny to the not-so-tiny. They even have a turntable! They had so much stuff that I had to create a separate post from our New Headphones at CES round-up.

Phones as DAPs: refurbished LG V20 for $230

From the “Phones as DAPs” department, especially if you want one for a big enough screen to watch music videos or music performances, eBay seller Guaranteeee Cellular is offering the seller refurbished LG V20 for $230 with free shipping and 30-day returns and a 60-day seller warranty.

It is available in two color schemes. This is the Verizon version with unlocked GSM. Check bands and such if you are planning to use it as a phone as well. Given the screen size and specs, you can also use it as an in-home/in-office mini-tablet.

Seller refurbished is a higher risk than manufacturer refurbished, as you rely on the seller to stand behind their work. That’s why the price is lower, so that’s a trade-off some are willing to make.

In addition to the praised DAC/Audio module, this has other music-playback friendly features, such as 64GB on-board plus microSD (up to 256GB), 4GB RAM, a previous generation flagship processor (so it won’t have problem using music/streaming apps for many years), 5.7-inch screen, etc.

PS: I have now began putting the “Phones as DAPs” under the Digital Audio Players category
