Used Audio Technica ATH-CKP200 Earphones for $8

Speaking of not well-reviewed earphones, if you want an earphone as a low point benchmark to compare and contrast with other better/worse earphones, the Audio Technica ATH-CKP200 are getting destroyed in reviews, 11 of its 14 customer reviews are 1-stars. There is one unit available in the black color scheme in “Used – Like New” condition (damaged original packaging) going for $7.85 with free shipping for Prime members through Amazon Warehouse Deals

Again, this should only be of interest if you are looking for a bad earphone to compare and contrast with better models (or other under=performing models).

The price is $1400 but will drop to $1250 thanks to an instant discount. The drop runs for the next seven days and change (from launch date).

You can make customizations in the shopping cart (nine options of shell and faceplate combinations). Optionally you can add an additional cable to your order (lightning or 2.5mm TRRS balanced) for +$50.

Ear impressions are not included in the price. You have to get your own and send them to Noble Audio in Santa Barbara (California). They expect to receive these within six weeks of the drop expiration, otherwise your order will be cancelled.

Their standard price is $200. These were launched after their Triple Driver IEMs got on the hype train. And then the “Driver Wars” took over 🙂

Monoprice Clearance Sale and Metal Dynamic On-Ears for $18 w/FS; MP20 In-Ears for $16 w/FS

Monoprice has launched a spring clearance sale of various random things they carry on their website. The Portable Audio section of the clearance sale is particularly loaded including the dual-driver over/on-ears going for $10 with free shipping, the dual-driver in-ears for $7~ plus shipping, and more. Then when you page down below the phones cases (some of them are iPod cases), you will find a dizzying array colorful cables. After the colorful cables, there’s more random headphones, and various random audio cables including a $0.35 rectactble 2.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable averaging 4.6 out of 5 based on 465 customer reviews.

Not part of the spring clearance sale, but on sale on their own, with free US ground shipping each are the following two budget headphones:

+ MP20 In-Ears for $16 w/free S&H (brand new model, only one review so far)

+ Metal Dynamic On-Ears for $18 w/free S&H (4.4 out of 5 based on 37 customer reviews)

One more thing that qualifies for free shipping, the 20oz Pure Emperor Tumbler goes for $7 with free US shipping, or if you buy TWO of them, coupon code TUM20 makes them $10 total ($5 each).

The reason I’m mentioning the free shipping options is that once you have a free shipping item in your Monoprice shopping cart, the shipping fee of other items in your cart gets absorbed (partially or fully) by the free shipping. So, for example, the S&H fee may ruin the $0.35 retractable audio cable price, but if it’s appended to an offer with free shipping, then it’s good! So there is a method to this madness 🙂

RHA MA750i In-Ears for $65 on clearance
