Monoprice sale w/FUSS: M650 Open Over-Ears $120, Mega Tube Amp for $340, MP10 IEMs for $8, Etc

All the offers mentioned in this post below include free standard US shipping as of the time of writing of this post…

Monoprice is running another headphone-related sale with a variety of products, big and small. From small earphones to boulder-sized amplifiers 🙂

+ speaking of which, the Monolith Tube Headphone amplifier with ESS Sabre DAC is going for $340

+ Monolith M650 open-back over-ears for $120
+ the M600 and M650 are not planar-magnetic; you are correct, the model names are an “homage” to certain “Heiser” headphones ^_^

+ metal headphone stand for $18

+ MP-10 in-ears for $8
+ yes, despite the low price, you still get free standard US shipping while this promotion is running ~ after all IEMs can ship easily and don’t take up lots of space and can probably be shipped easily even with USPS first class mail [only guessing here, I have no clue how they will ship these]

+ Retro over-ears for $22.49
+ you are correct if it reminds you of a certain Superlux/Samson headphone 🙂

+ Monoprice 8323 with bluetooth for $23
+ the good old model now with bluetooth (and apt-X). I haven’t seen this new model but I had the 8323 and larger heads were not an easy fit. It also expands a bit strangely on your head, so if you are image-conscious note that when you are using it at coffee shops and libraries and such

PS: “FUSS” = Free US shipping and handling…

Sunday: Bluetooth Beanies for $18

Woot Electronics is back with a utilitarian winter-y headphone offer – beanies (yes, the ones you wear on your head to keep warm) with bluetooth headphones built-in. Wearables of the budget kind 🙂 They go for $18 per pair, in three color options. They come with a 90-day warranty from Woot actual. They are unisex and one-size-fits-all, as it is often the case with these type of winter-y beanies. They even come with bluetooth 4.1. A charging cable is included…

PS: things such as this that don’t fit into the “standard” headphones I file in the “Alternative Headphones” category.

PS2: “Alternative to what?” as fans of indie music may say ^_^

Grado SR60i Open-Back for $35.50

This is a bit of a surprise! There is a listing of a new condition open-back Grado SR60i headphones offered for the very specific price of $35.50 with a “1-3 months” shipment estimate. These are sold and shipped by Amazon actual. The only strange thing about this listing is that the manufacturer name in one of the Amazon fields has been changed from “Grado” to “ANCHENLE” (whatever that is).

Follow the yellow highlights and markings to see the points of interest in the screenshot below…

So there is some risk to this, but since it is “sold and shipped” by Amazon actual, if there is any trouble/issue, Amazon customer service will handle it. Still, if you hate returning products, then mayhaps this is best avoided. On the other hand, if you are a boldly going shopper, sometimes luck favors the bold [and definitely the bald!]

PS: the SR60i [which I had] is the previous generation model. The current generation is the SR60e. And before those two there was the SR60. I personally did not find the SR60i as polarizing as some of the forum dwellers, but it definitely had a bit of a unique sound signature.
