Sony MDR-V6 Studio Headphones for $67 w/free S&H

This is not the lowest price ever, but if you need to get the good old Sony MDR-V6 studio headphones (closed over-ears) in new condition, they are going for $67~ with free shipping by Amazon actual which looks to be an automated price-match of a couple of marketplace sellers. Limit up to three pairs per customer at the sale price from Amazon actual, and more from the marketplace sellers.

If you prefer to shop on eBay, you can get them for about a dollar more from Ritz Cameras on eBAY. There is no mention of warranty in the Ritz eBay listing, so assume no warranty.

You can’t go wrong with these headphones even at full price, they are a time-tested model and one of the benchmarks a number of people use to compare performance of other/newer headphones.

Pre-order 62 track “Big Classical Beatles Box” for $0.99

On now something new to test your headphones with. Ooops, I mean, new music to listen to 🙂 Coming out on Friday February 9 in 2018 (Friday is the new Tuesday for music releases after all) there is a brand new 63-track classical music compilation with Beatles music. It is the Big Classical Beatles Box by the BachGuid. The whole set can be yours for $0.99. Total run time is 3 hours and 22 minutes, not bad for 99c 🙂

Almost all the tracks are available as 30 seconds samples. Mouse over an individual track and the option to play the sample appears (this with a laptop/desktop browser). Or you can go to the top of the track list and press the master PLAY button and it will play all 62 samples. That’s half an hour of sampled music 🙂

This is just the tip of the iceberg for 99c mega-bundles at Amazon. For example, here are a handful of Little Big boxes featuring various composers and instrument-centric music as well.
