I do not know when the coupon promotion expires!

PS: yes, I will always keep on using Massdrop instead of Drop. Because Massdrop is a name. Drop is a word 🙂

Lowest price sale of select Monoprice audio products

If you are fond of Monoprice audio products or their many audio cables and assorted accessories, they are currently having a Lowest Price sale of select products, including a few headphones, speakers, a couple of DACs, and all kinds of audio cables and assorted accessories.

Please note that I’m not familiar with the price ranges of the various Monoprice products, so I can’t trust-but-verify they are the “lowest price sale” as the Monoprice website states.

20% off coupon at Monoprice (expires 7/4/23)

If you are interested in checking out some of Monoprice’s headphones or DAC/amps or stock up on audio cables and other consumables, or most of the other items they sale, the Monoprice website is having a 4th of July coupon promotion!

You can search for headphones or DAC/amps, or follow the categories and sub-categories over there to find what you want/need. Or search for Monolith, but do note that some of the Monolith products are not coupon-eligible [you can see them at the aforelinked list].

If you are fond of shopping refurbished and open-box products, they have some headphone-related options there as well!

Headphones at Amazon’s Black Friday

Black Friday offers are coming in fast and furious, until I can find time to digest them all, here is a link to the Amazon headphone offers, there’s six pages of them, this is a mix of their BF offers along with their more traditional “Gold Box Lightning” deals.

It’s also a mix of name-brands and unknown brands. Well there’s “unknown” and unknown, and some non-designer brands have made a name for themselves at Amazon by offering bang for the buck type of products that the name-brand manufacturers cannot compete with.

Singles Day 2022 is here, let the Chi-Fi parties begin!

Yes, the premier Chi-Fi party is here! It is Singles Day 2022! I can’t go through all the sites and the individual sales, but here’s a round-up of some of the places to look for deals:

+ LinSoul Audio

+ Hifi Go

+ Shen Zhen Audio, also has regional Amazon stores, some ship from regional country (eg USA Prime eligible), some ship from China

+ Penon Audio, “old school” Chi-fi retailer

+ KZ Online Shoppe, old school budget IEMs

+ Fiio shop, I guess Fiio is now “old school”

+ Moondrop Audio, because the hype machine is hungry!

+ and a lot more!

And now off to the general-market retailers that also have plenty of Chi-fi gear, such as

+ GearBest (bought from them multiple times)

+ Aliexpress (biggest site, check each retailer like you would do on Amazon and eBay)

+ DH Gate

+ and a lot more

BECAUSE Chi-Fi is a lifestyle, it’s a never-ending journey, the shopping never stops and the latest must-have IEM is just a YouTube update away! Just today, Ryan of Super*Review rated the Truthear Hexa as the “easiest 5-star ever” (YouTube-embedded below), so run to buy this one too along with the rest of the must-have Chi-fis 🙂

Audiophile Week returns to Massdrop in late April

Massdrop is celebrating 10 years and among the planned festivities, per their aforelinked blog-post, they are planning to have an Audiophile Week in late April 2022.

Good luck to all? 🙂

Singles Day offers up and running at AliExpress

If you like buying headphone-related products from AliExpress, their website is running various 11/11 offers, with said offers clearly marked with a red-white 11.11 label attached to them.

Time permitting I may post individual offers, but I don’t want to hold off on posting this because I may not find the time to do so 🙂

The easiest way perhaps is to search for what you are interested in. For example search for “Fiio” or “KZ” or whatever else is the trending product du jour hyped in the audiophile/phool forums and YouTubes and blogs 🙂

B&H Photo Daily Deals Return All Together At Once

A couple of times per year B&H Photo launches a MEGA DEAL ZONE sale. This is all their daily deals, going live all together at the same time! If there was any previously daily-deal you missed out on, this is your chance to grab it!

You can check by Brand Name or price range or by product category…

Under “PRO Audio” you will find their Senal house-brand closed-back over-studio headphones going from $45 to $60 (think along the lines of MDR-V6 and MDR-7506), the Roland CS-10EM binaural in-ears for $50, and such…

For more consumer and audiophile headphones, click on the “Mobile Electronics” sub-category. Unfortunately there is no headphones sub-tab, so you just have to browse through them OR use the Brands filter and select your audio manufacturers of interest…

I will try to go through these later today to highlight some potentially interesting headphone offerings…

Their daily deals run in 24-hour windows starting at 12:01am eastern time. Mega Deal Zones often run for more than one day, but not always. This being year-end, I’m purely speculating here, they may last until the end of the year…

750+ headphones in limited time Amazon Warehouse clearance

As of the time of writing over 750 headphones are participating in a limited time Amazon Warehouse Deals sale

PS: not used, but because the clock is running out on this I don’t want to create a separate post, good until Sunday at 11:15am ET, you can get the new condition iKKo Audio oh1 IEMs for $67 as one of the lightning deals for Sunday 12/27/20 at Amazon’s…

20% off Amazon Warehouse Deals (USA and Germany too)

One of the Black Friday traditions is the 20% off discount at Amazon Warehouse Deals. This happens automatically in the shopping cart when you put there products that are eligible for the promotion ~ it is also denoted in the detailed USED listings of such items.

There are currently 82 options in the Headphones category. I will be going through them on a time-permitting basis, but I’m posting it now because supplies are limited, so if you have the time to look for deals, you potentially won’t miss them out!

The same promotion is available at Amazon Germany where they have, as of the time of posting, 270 options in the Headphones sub-category

AS to whether to shop from Amazon USA or Germany, this depends (obviously) on your location and whether you’ll be paying customs, VAT, taxes and such…

Sennheiser M2 IEi Wired In-Ears for $35

NewEgg is now running a variant of their Black Friday sale and among those offers they do have a Headphone section, the headliner of which is the new condition Sennheiser M2 IEi HD1 wired in-ears with Apple buttons going for just $35 with free US shipping. This is sold and shipped by NewEgg so you know you are not getting an iffy/international/etc product…

The sale is on both the black/red (looks stylish from the pictures) and the black/chrome (looks more conventional/streamlined in the pictures) options…

Headphones in the 2019 Black Friday Ads

And just like that dear head-friends another Black Friday is just around the corner. Time to take a look at what headphones are advertised in the Black Friday ads of 2019. Of course these are consumer models, you are not going to find electrostatic systems and open-back reference models in these 🙂

LATEST UPDATE: November 18 in 2019 ~ first edition; more will be added as they come out… As you can see just by looking at the size of the blocks below, wireless is currently “winning” the average consumer… This is a very long post, more after the break…

20% off 160+ USED Headphones at AWD [Prime Day]

Another Prime Day temptation from Amazon, this time of the USED kind (no, not the band). Amazon Warehouse Deals has plenty of USED products offering a 20% off discount when you add them to the shopping cart. They must be sold by “Amazon Warehouse Deals” (Amazon’s used products persona) and be eligible for the promotion. Eligible items mention this in their individual used listings. [screenshot at the bottom of the post]…

Of headphone interest, there are over 160 products in the Headphones category eligible for this promotion. There might be some more that are categorized elsewhere (gaming, phone accessories, etc).

Here is an example of two eligible listings and one ineligible. They are taken from the used listings of the Bowers & Wilkins PX ANC/Bluetooth headphones:

Make Your Own Deal: $10 off $200+ at Sonic’s eBay store

The Sonix Electronix eBay store is having a shopping cart promotion for a limited time. When you make a purchase of $200+, the shopping cart will automatically take a $10 off your total. You can see this happening while this promotion is running in the shopping cart as you place eligible items. If you don’t see the discount applied _before_ you place the order, it means the offer expired and/or the items may not be eligible…

If you don’t feel like browsing their whole inventory, there are 52 items (as of the time of writing) under their Headphones & Portable audio categories…

Massdrop goes crazy with Curated “Bounty Boxes” for $100 or $250 [or a wild $5000 Ultimate Box]

UPDATE: this post has now been proofread. I posted the original while in a hurry 🙂

NOTE: This is a bit of a complicated offer, so don’t jump in until you read the description over there and/or check their forum to see what others are saying…

Massdrop is once again doing crazy things, this time with the Bounty Boxes. You pay $100 or $250, and for that you are guaranteed to receive something from Audiophile and/or Tech & Gaming and/or Outdoors and/or EDC (I’m assuming this is the industry-standard term for “Every Day (Steph) Curry” OOPS, I mean, “Every Day Carry”???)…

This is a curated “bounty box” in that the included items are pre-selected by Massdrop and listed for all to see [see below]…

To make it more enticing, Massdrop will be randomly upgrading some of the boxes with a more expensive item. Eleven out of 100 Silver boxes (the $100 boxes) will get an upgrade. And one in four Gold boxes (the $250 boxes) will get an upgrade.

The $100 Silver box will receive four items. Three from the “Common” items category and one from the “Uncommon” items. The $250 Gold box will receive five items, two Common, two Uncommon and one Rare. If these don’t make sense, read the SPOILERS section at the bottom of this blog post below…

If you want to select which category your products will come from, you pay an extra +$10. So if you are interested in only one or two of those four categories, it may not be a bad idea to pay more for the guarantee. If you like all four categories, or you can gift what you don’t want/need/like, then no need for the +$10.

You won’t receive duplicates of the same product, but you will receive items from the same category ~ especially if you pay the +$10 to preselect the category of interest.

Each person can buy up to five boxes per shopping cart, so you can mix and match categories or have them all be randomly selected.

Free shipping is included but sales-tax is also included (eg in California where Massdrop is located). This is for US addresses only and they will ship in late July 2019 from Massdrop…

There is a return policy but read the terms on their website: items must be un-opened and un-damaged. There is a restocking fee. You can only return one bounty box per calendar month. So think before you buy if you think the chances are high that you will return it…

And then there’s the crazy $5000 tier
If you have $5000 to spare, they have the “Ultimate Bounty Box”. You receive a wooden crate that is filled with some of the items from the tiers below but they will also include additional unlisted items from the Massdrop general inventory. And per the description, these will apparently be individually gift wrapped making it a longer and more fun [and/or more frustrating] unboxing process. Note that the wooden crate will be nailed shut, so prepare your tools or bring in a handyman/handywoman to help you ~ especially if you are recording the unboxing video for YouTube purposes 🙂

If you are the type who enjoys the randomness of things, this is for you. If you are the type who only wants specific items and hates getting things you haven’t thoroughly researched and need, then avoid this. If you are somewhere in-between, do some soul searching before deciding 🙂

If you want to make an educated guess on what you might get, they are posting SPOILERS! A PDF file at the aforelinked page lists all eligible items for the Silver and Gold boxes. The $5000 box additional unlisted items are … not listed there 🙂 To preserve their SPOILERS policy, I will be discussing the available headphones below the break… Spoilers after this paragraph, you have been WARNED!
