Tranesca Replacement Earpads for $13

If you like to try accessories from lesser known manufacturers, boldly going where the mainstream shopper has not gone before, a fairly new brand called Transesca is selling familiar-looking headphone earpads in black or white for $13 per pair and fulfilled by Amazon, so you get Prime shipping. They are not Add-On items.

They average 4.5 out of 5 based on 76 customer reviews, have 36 answered questions, and have a long list of compatible headphones in the product description over there. Between these three places, you can check whether your headphone will or won’t work. Among the headphones listed as compatible are famous models like the Sony V6/7506 duo, the Philips SHP-9500S, the Monoprice 8323, the Audio Technica M50/40/30/20 (with and without X) models, Sennheiser HD280/380, 518/558/598, HD 600, etc.

Mayhaps trying to increase their audiophile, they say their earpads do not fit Beats or Bose 🙂 Per the gallery picture over there, they come with a 24-month warranty…

I haven’t seen or touched these, but I’ll probably get a pair the next time I place an Amazon order that needs to get to $25+ because of those pesky Add-On items. I have at least three compatible headphones, so I should be able to test them ~ if I ever make progress on my review backlog 🙂

Thursday: Feed Your DAPs: 200GB Sandisk microSDXC for $50, 64GB for $14, and more

Don’t forget to feed your pets, but also feed your DAPs! They need more music files to digest! Good until Friday 3am eastern (or earlier for any individual items that may happen to sell out) is a Sandisk Daily Deal happening inside the very busy Gold Box at Amazonia.

You can buy anywhere from three to ten units of the same card, depending mayhaps on how many are available or any other factors the Amazon AI Bots use to determine these things.

The best bang for the buck is definitely the 64GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for $14, that’s 4.57GB per dollar 🙂

Next up is the 128GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for $28.49, which is 4.49 per dollar!

But in terms of storage flexibility, it’s of course the 200GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC going for $50 with a flat 4GB per dollar.

It is not a surprise that the highest capacity is also the highest price, the 256GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC goes for $90 which is 2.84GB per dollar. The 400GB for $250 is 1.6GB per dollar.

You can also get the 32GB for $9.49 which is $3.37 per GB, defeated even by the 200GB card.

NOTE: if you are not certain how your current DAP or PAD (phone as a DAP) will work with these, make sure you check the manual/support pages, or google or check the forums. Especially if you are buying a high capacity card.

PADs: refurbished HTC One M9 for $100

If you like to use phones as DAPs (PADs), for example, you listen to a lot of streaming services and like to use some of the Google Play music apps for your own music, we have a $100 offer for you.

One of the early pre Black Friday sales at NewEgg Flash is the refurbisehd HTC One M9 for $100 with free shipping. It is available in three different color options. The seller is “AllBuyHome”. This has both a headphone jack and a microSD slot (HTC brought it back with the M8)

The HTC M10 was the last HTC flagship to have a headphone jack. The U11 line after that removed the headphone jack. The list of smartphones without is growing but they are all cursed 🙂 The HTC U11 is not getting traction with consumers despite great reviews, the Motorola Z series is mostly ignored even though everyone’s in love with their Moto G series, Le Eco is having major financial troubles, the Pixel 2s are plagued with hardware problems 🙂
