YMMV: Puku Sound Earphones Clearance at Starbucks B&M

This is YMMV as I only saw these in one out of four Starbucks stores. As part of the customary January clearance sale, some Starbucks brick and mortar stores may have the Puku Sound in-ears on clearance. The clearance prices are up to 50% off the original price. The discount may vary regionally or at a manager’s discretion so check the price at the cash register if interested.

This is YMMV, as perhaps some of the smaller or less busy stores don’t carry as much inventory as other stores. I’m not sure what the model number was, but they are Puku Sound earphones.

Speaking of Costco, they have the Airpods for $140 that go in and out of stock and because these are so popular, they are restricted to Costco members only. To add to the confusion, Costco yanks the product page from their website when it is out of stock, so this is a YMMV depending on when you check.

They also have a members-only sale on the Jaybird Freedom Wireless for $50 with free shipping in gold or black color schemes.

The members-only offers can only be purchased by actual paying Costco members.

Massdrop MEE Audio Bluetooth Earphone Grab Bag for $22 w/FS

If you love the randomness of grab bags, Massdrop is back once again with another MEE Audio bluetooth earphone grab bag. You pay $22 with free shipping and for that, you are guaranteed to receive one of three MEE Audio bluetooth earphones. Either the X6 or the M6GB or the N1. The odds are almost even among the three.

You can purchase up to five grab bags. Each purchase is individually randomized, so there is a possibility that if you buy five you may get five of the same. Statistically this is very unlikely, especially given the close odds between the three choices, but not impossible.

These will ship early February 2018, and all sales are final. Up to ten grand prizes may become available depending on how many units are purchased (AKG over-ears and one Fostex). The chances of getting a prize instead are very low, don’t decide on the purchase based on the prizes.

It is the new condition MP80 BA + Dynamic Driver IEMs are on sale for $70 with free standard US shipping. But wait, there’s more! You can use coupon code ENJOY and get 15% off, making this a $59.50 with free shipping. The coupon expires Christmas night (12/25/17 PM).

That’s the thing with Monoprice coupons, some of the time (but not most of the time) they also work on sale items, so you have to check/test every time if you want to get the lowest price available at the moment of purchase 🙂

It comes with three tuning nozzles that alter the sound signature. The three options per the product description follow the patterns of bright, sub-bassy and neutral-ish (“deliver a more accurate frequency response”). They have close-up pictures of the tuning nozzles [screenshot below]:

Accessories are a leather storage pouch, a cord clip, and silicone eartips.

This could make for an interesting and more complicated review for the boldly-going early-adopters as you would essentially be reviewing three different earphones in terms of sound signature.

And that’s before you go wild and mix different tuning nozzles on each ear! I said “boldly going” 🙂

Triple XXX Triple Driver IEMs for $30 w/free S&H
