Not sure where Beyerdynamic gets their ideas for the names of their earphones, but their new condition “Beat Byrd” wired in-ears (no mic/remote) are currently on sale for around 25 euro at Amazon Germany, sold by the official Amazon store over there. They average 4.1 out of 5 based on 30 customer reviews.

Wedn (EU): Babiko Truly Wireless (BT 5.0) for 18 euro

To the land of Oktoberfest we go where among the Wednesday Amazon Germany deals of the day we have the new condition bluetooth 5.0 bakibo truly wireless earphones going for the very specific price of 17.59 euro with free shipping in Germany-Austria depending on Prime member status and order total.

Note that this may not ship in some countries because of that darned lithium-ion paranoid restriction. Limit up to four units per customer at the sale price. These average 3.9 out of 5 based on 100+ customer reviews.

V-Moda Crossfade Bluetooth Over-Ears down to $90

One price-check leads to another, and our previous V-Moda post yielded further discounting on the first generation V-Moda Crossfade Wireless (bluetooth closed-back over-ears), in new condition, down to $90 with free US shipping by Amazon actual and you can buy as many as you like. This is an organic price, not a lightning deal, so the price does not have a ticking clock.

These average 4.2 out of 5 with over 820 customer reviews at Amazon. It includes a matching “exoskeleton” case and a few small accessories. Note that the 2nd generation model is already out and there was a revised version of the 2nd generation model as the “Codex”. The one on sale here, the first generation, does not support apt-X. Of the 2nd generation, only the “Rose Gold” color scheme supports apt-X, along with the newer Codex model.

EU fans: Grado Headphones are shipping from Amazon Germany itself

Grado fans in Europe, your time has come! You no longer have to plan a trip to the USA or beg friends and family to bring you one on their way back from the USA. Right now, Amazon Germany itself is offering the new condition Grado SR60e open-back headphones. This is sold and shipped by Amazon Germany ~ in addition to the other listings by marketplace sellers. Amazon’s own price oscillates frequently, their AI price-bots frequently price-match the 109 euro price of the marketplace sellers. Here’s a screenshot of the listing:

Just like the SR60 and 60i before it, the Grado SR60e is an old-school headphone, no microphone, no inline-remote, no bluetooth, no NFC, no nothing. Just a headphone with a cable (with a screw-on 1/4″ adapter) and nothing more, nothing less…

The PORG of course is NOT included. I am simply adding it to some of the blog pictures for entertainment and trolling purposes. Also makes them less appealing for unauthorized reuse 🙂

There is however a trans-atlantic price difference because the standard price at amazon.com is $79. So if you are in the EU, you may also want to look for used options from Amazon.de Warehouse Deals, as those can bring the price closer to the USA new condition price.

Wedn: JBL earphone charging case for $15 after coupon

Wednesday loves headphones it seems because the NewEgg daily deals [now with a more organized website that makes it easier to quickly skim and scan the daily offers] include one headphone item, it is the new condition JBL headphone charging case going for $15 with free US shipping after you enter coupon code 93XPC48 over there. Limit up to three per customer at the sale price.

This is sold and shipped by NewEgg actual. The charging case promises UP TO 16 hours of playtime, and UP TO one hour of playtime with 15 minutes of charge. This of course depends on the individual earphones and such. Picture #1 shows wireless earphones but I’m not sure if they are included or not. This is an earphone-sized case, not a full-size headphone case. You can guestimate the size by looking at the size of the charging cable.

This is the first time I’ve seen this, so I know nothing Jon “Audio” Snow 🙂
