Print Magazine Sale: Stereophile $7.77 per year

Headphone magazines are very hard to come buy, especially in english, but there are some audio-related magazines and two of them are participating in this limited time sale at the Discount Mags website. These are print magazines, delivered via snail mail, to addresses in the USA. They do not auto-renew (thankfully).

Of the various options, these two are A/V related:

+ Stereophile for $7.77 per year

+ Sound and Vision for $7.55 per year

These prices are good for up to three years. You can use the offer for a new subscription for you, or a gift subscription for others, and you can also renew an existing subscription.

Remember, these are print magazines, not digital.

Powerbeats 3 bluetooth eaprhones for $80 [limit 3]

It is $90 as a Best Buy daily deal, but Amazon actual has managed to outdo them, it’s the red-black color scheme of the new condition Power Beats 3 bluetooth earphones going for $80 with free US shipping and up to three pairs per customer at the sale price. The other two colors go for $90…

This is an “organic” Amazon price, so I have no clue if/when it will change. The earphones average 3.6 out of 5 based on nearly 3800 customer reviews and they have a rather low 2:1 5-star to 1-star ratio. Ideally you want to look at products with a 10:1 or better ratio. If nothing else, this should convince you to read reviews and forums and such before buying…
