If you don’t mind waiting for free slow shipping from China, at NewEgg, marketplace seller “Sodial” is offering Sodial replacement earpads for the good old Sennheiser HD 201 headphones for $3.65 with free shipping from Asia. Earpads are small and squishy so they are easier to ship across the seven seas.

Hifiman Edition S Open/Closed On-Ears for $129

It’s back to Black Friday pricing for Hifiman’s dynamic on-ears, the “Edition S” whose defining characteristic is their open/closed design. They “open” by removing the earpad cover, and close by adding it back on. There are two colors but they have three listings at Amazon, many of them are by recognizable audio sellers, including Hifiman’s own Amazon store:

+ black Edition S for $129

+ white Edition S for $129
+ and secondary white listing for $129

PS: the “lightning” you see in the product name is part of the color. They are NOT lightning cable headphones.
