RHA CL1 Ceramic IEMs back to $250 [shipping estimate 9/21/17]

UPDATE 9/18/17 PM: the price returned to $250, the shipment estimate remains 9/21…

UPDATE 9/18/17 AM: the latest estimate is September 21st…

UPDATE 9/16/17 PM as of this update, the shipping estimate is September 20. Remember though, estimates are just that, and they change as the clock ticks…

UPDATE 9/11/17 AM the price of the RHA CL1 Ceramic IEMs dropped to $217~. The shipping estimate is currently the all-encompassing “temporarily out of stock”…

ORIGINAL POST
Teaware is not the only thing that loves ceramics. RHA does too! Mayhaps the Scottish connection of tea and earphones? 🙂 That’s a question for the RHA engineers, in the meantime, their new CL1 ceramic earphones are about to start shipping!

The current in-stock estimate at amazon.com is September 10 (2017), with a starting price of $250, sold and shipped by Amazon actual.

UPDATE: Jack pointed out in the comments that there’s a big difference in price. This was announced at IFA 2016, a whole year ago for $450, which is the price at the RHA website as well.

Amazon just recently added it to their website for $250. Price error? Newer model? Price drop? Amazon volume buy? Production and material costs went down?

I will post another update if I find the answer or find someone who knows the answer…

Used V-Moda ZN In-Ears for $89

If you are comfortable with used earphones, the V-Moda ZN with the 1-button remote/mic are available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $89~ in one listing, and then they have half a dozen of listings in “Used – Like New” condition for $94~, all listings by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual.

Given that there are multiple listings, time may put some pressure on the prices and cause them to drop. On the other hand, the single $89 listing may be serving as a roadblock to further discounting. It’s hard to guess since Amazon’s price bots work in mysterious ways 🙂

The 3-button used prices start at $111+. All together they have 140+ customer reviews and average 3.9 out of 5.

Used V-Moda Forza Metallo IEMs (wired) for $55 [updated]

UPDATE 9/10/17 additional listings in “Used – Good” condition have been adding going for $55~…

I will do a post Labor Day reckoning of previous posts (I have to find a block of time to do this), and also another Amazon and Warehouse Deals deal fishing expedition, but in the meantime, while price-checking, I run into this, the Apple buttons version, in the Gunmetal Black color scheme of the V-MODA Forza Metallo wired in-ears is available in “Used – Good” condition for $60~ and in “Used – Very Good” condition for $64~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals.

There are two pages of listings for this, so if you don’t need it right away, time may cause the price to drop further down. Only this color/OS combination is this low as the moment.

PS: V-Moda also has a “Wireless” version of these earphones, that’s why I’m distinguishing this by saying “wired”. The wireless costs for more, both new and used.

AKG N40 earphones with $200 Promo Gift Card for $400 [updated]

UPDATE 9/11/17: the N60 NC sold out, but the AKG N40 earphones going for $400 with a $200 promotional NewEgg gift card continue until their expiration (one week after the deal got started)…

According to the teasers at NewEgg Flash, starting at 12pm ET on Wednesday 9/6/17, they will have a couple of flash sales on the AKG N40 in-ears and the AKG N60 NC over/on-ears that will get you big promotional gift cards, $200 and $150 respectively.

Now how good of a deal this will be depends on what the actual headphone price will be, which won’t be revealed until the offers go live. The promotional gift cards are typically good at NewEgg and last for one year after they are issued, so there should be plenty of time to spend them even if you are not a diehard NewEgg fan.

Here’s the teaser from their website:

PS: you have to click on the thumbnail of an upcoming item to see its starting date and time.

PS2: there is always a possibility of things get cancelled or rescheduled. I’ve seen items change start time a couple of times.

Pre-order new Sony WI-1000X Neckband Bluetooth Earphones

Building on the success of the MDR-1000X, Sony is expanding that line with earphones too. The new WI-1000X is a neckband bluetooth earphone, a parallel model to the new WH-1000X M2, and it is priced in that range too.

The neckbands will have a sticker-shock (?) starting price of $300 in black or gold and they are available for pre-orders at Amazon with a mid-September 2017 release estimate.

UPDATE: also part of the 1000X line-up is a new “truly wireless” line, the WF-1000X. This too is available in gold or black, and has a starting price of $200, with a mid-September 2017 release estimate according to amazon.com.

The reason you are seeing an increase in new headphones is because this week, in Berlin::Germany, the IFA 2017 high tech trade show is happening. I am keeping an on-going tracking posts that summarizes the New Headphones of IFA 2017.
