New Blog: Unboxing the Tennmak PRO In-Ears

The unboxing that was promised is here! I was supposed to be do this during the weekend but it fell behind! It is our customary Text and Pictures Unboxing of a chi-fi darling, the Tennmak PRO in-ears, in the black color scheme, without a mic. It was an impulse/review buy when they were on a lightning deal last week. A total of 18 useful pictures are included!

FAQ: Why Aren’t the Pictures Pretty/Professional?

One thing I keep forgetting to mention [I need to create an FAQ for the website] is this: “Why aren’t the pictures pretty/professional” like you see in magazines and hifi websites? The answer may surprise you!

1. I am not doing product marketing or advertising for the manufacturers or sponsor worship. The purpose of the pictures is to show the product and what’s included, not to make the product look like a beautiful work of art 🙂

2. professional pictures take time, and the more time I spend on pictures, the less time I can spend on audio-related things

3. I currently have a ghetto photography setup. It’s a basic lightbox thing, and I use either a simple digital camera or a smartphone (and occasionally a tablet if that’s the only thing that’s charged) to take pictures. I crop most of the published pictures but rarely do any post-processing/Photoshopping 🙂

Sabaj DA3 portable USB DAC/amp for $90 after coupon

Clip-on coupons are all the rage at Amazon these days The official Sabaj (fulfilled by Amazon) store is having a $10 off clip-on coupon on either color scheme of the new condition Sabaj DA3 portable USB DAC/amp, dropping its price from $100 to $90, with free shipping (fulfilled by Amazon). It averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 13 customer reviews.

Note that this is offered for the same promotion from the Sabaj as “ships from China”. Since the price is the same, if you are in the US, the “fulfilled by Amazon” will arrive a lot faster!

Anker ZOLO Liberty Truly Wireless for $80 after coupon

Anker revealed at CES 2018 their new ZOLO Liberty+ Truly Wireless Earbuds with Bluetooth 5.0. And as it is often the case, the previous model gets some discount. Their ZOLO Liberty (no +) model drops from $100 to $80 thanks to coupon code 9AAR5XQ4, sold by Anker Direct with the order fulfilled by Amazon.

There is certainly a level of convenience with the “Truly Wireless” genre, as long as they can stay in your ears [depending on what you are doing]. We have here a text and pictures unboxing of a different model, the Jaybird Run. It’s the only one I tried so far.

Repurposing: 2pk Guitar Wall Hangers for $4

Their primary use is guitar wall hangers, but you could also repurpose them as headphone or earphone hangers or stand. IF they are strong enough to hold a guitar, they can certainly hold a headphone/earphone. This is not a lightning deal, so expiration time unknown It is a 2pk of Guitar Wall Hangers for $4. You can buy as many as you like.

Don’t tell the Amazon bots, but this is NOT an Add-On item, so if you are a Prime member, you can get one 2-pack for $4 and still get free 2-day shipping [or select no-rush shipping and get a $1 digital credit]
