Hifiman Ananda Open Over-Ear planars for $849

We haven’t turned into a Hifiman blog 🙂 It’s just that when you start price-checking one store or manufacturer, other models tend to come up, and if there are notable price differences and/or offers, then the posts keep on coming…

In this case, the new condition open-back over-ear planar-magnetic Hifiman Ananda headphones are available in new condition for $849 and in “Used – Like New” for $799 by marketplace seller “Hifi Heaven” through Amazon Warehouse Deals.

This ships directly from Hifi Heaven and it is free shipping but not Prime eligible. Hifi Heaven is a B&M A/V store in Wisconsin (think Green Bay Packers) and authorized Hifiman dealers

NVX XPT-100 Closed Over-Ear Studio headphones for $80

This is one of the headphones that finds itself sometimes in recommendation lists/discussions for the $100-ish category…

EU: Sony Extra Bass XB-550 Closed On-Ears for 29+ euro

If you need some _EXTRA_ bass in your life, and you are shopping from Amazon Germany, they currently have a sale on the various colors of the new condition closed-back Sony Extra Bass XB-550 AP headphones. Prices start at 29 euro for the red color scheme and increase slightly for the other colors…

PS: AP stands for “Android Phone” and it is the 1-button remote with mic cable. These appear to be on-ears although when I put them on at a store they felt somewhere between an over- and an on-ear. And the headband adjusted with plenty of room to spare on my big head [in comparison, I can just barely squeeze comfortably in the good old Monoprice 8323s]…

Used Hifiman HE-560 Planar Open Over-Ears for $319

Here’s a written-on screenshot of the aforementioned offering:

ALTERNATELY, there are plenty of used listings of these at Adorama

NOTE: if you are not familiar with the Hifiman Reliability Saga, be sure to check the various audio forums and blogs as they appear to have higher than average breakage rate, so keep that in mind if making a purchase…

Wednesday PAD: refurbished LG V20 for $100

PADs, PADs, PADs on a budget! Good until Wednesday 7/3/18 at 11:59pm central (or earlier if sold out), Woot Electronics is offering the refurbished LG V20 Android smartphone for $100 with free shipping for Prime members or $6 flat calendar-day shipping for non-members. Limit up to three per customer.

This is a 4GB RAM with 64GB on-board model with microSD slot as well, and of course the famous V-series DAC/amp technology. It is the Verizon model with its GSM unlocked so you can also use it as a smartphone on Verizon or your favorite GSM provider (check bands if there are issues in your area).

It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. NOTE that this is a “scratch and dent” refurbished, so if you are a perfectionist, you may want to avoid it 🙂

MEANWHILE if you scoot on over to “Computers”, there, their daily deal is a 3-pack of Samsung 64GB microSD cards for $30 total…

EU: Sennheiser CX 300S Stumpy In-Ears for 40 to 41 euro

Sennheiser itself had a mini big bang of new consumer-tier headphones and among them is the return of the dreaded “S” (dreaded because in englishes a final “s” indicates plural ~ making conversations and searches more complicated than necessary). The stumpy CX 300 II barely-in-ears have now been replaced with the CX 300S, and at Amazon Germany the white color scheme is down to 40 euro and the red (“rot” in german) is down to 41 euro.

Their default prices are 50 euro at amazon.de, and $50 USD at amazon.com.

PS: “stumpy” is not (yet?) a headphone technical term ^_^

Freshebuds bluetooth earphones for $20

Especially of interest if you have Stacksocial store credits and/or coupons, they are currently offering the new condition Freshebuds bluetooth earphones (necklace style) for $20. Shipping is extra. You earn a $1 store credit for every $25 in purchases. All sales are final and they ship in mid-July 2019. They have over 270 customer ratings at Stacksocial but they don’t have written reviews like Amazon. You just see a “visual average” of their rating.

Stacksocial only carries a self-curated type of a headphone collection so it’s a bit of a “box of chocolates”…

Hifiman Sundara Open Planars for 314 euro or $350 USD

If you are not afraid of the Hifiman built quality [check blogs and forums for details] their Sundara planar-magnetic open-back over-ear are currently on sale as follows:

+ 314~ euro at Amazon Germany (limit one per customer, fulfilled by Amazon, sold by marketplace seller “Projekt Akustik”)

+ $350 by various at amazon.com (the USA original Amazon)

As far as trans-atlantic purchases are concerned, do make sure you factor in shipping and customs and waiting and such…

Prime only: Four Months of Music Unlimited for 99 cents total

If you are an Amazon Prime member and curious about their for-pay music-streaming service, for a limited time they are offering a Four Month Subscription for $0.99 total for these four months. After those months expire, it will auto-convert to their $10/month subscription rate unless you manually cancel or change your subscription.

This is especially of interest if you have already purchased digital music from Amazon (directly, or got it as a free mp3 album with the purchase of qualifying music CDs) because you can have both your cloud-streaming and your digitally-owned music available in a single app…

I do not know when the offer expires. You have to be logged on with a Prime member account to see the offer ~ otherwise you will see their “default” offer…

Sony WH-CH700N ANC/BT Over-Ears: $86 Used, $95 Renewed

If you want a bluetooth and ANC over-ears combo but don’t want to pay the big bucks to get the $300+ competitors from Bose and Sony and such, and you are of the Sony persuasion, the more affordable WH-CH700N model is currently available for under $100 in two different not-new-condition options:

+ $95 in Renewed condition (another name for refurbished) sold and shipped by seller “Chubbiestech” but Prime members get upgraded to faster Prime-like free shipping. It comes with a 90-day “Amazon Renewed” warranty (it is part of the Amazon “Renewed” program)

+ $86~ in “Used – Very Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals

+ the prices may fluctuate dynamically, so YMMV by the time you read this

And as fate would have it, we have a text and pictures unboxing of said model at our parallel content blog. The PORG you see in the pictures is a “blog pet” ~ it is not included with the headphone 🙂

Used FOCAL ELEGIA closed over-ears for $599

The new condition FOCAL Elegia closed-back over-ears currently go for $699 but if you prefer the way of the used, authorized dealer OneCall has a “Used – Very Good” condition listing going for $599 through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Prime members will get Prime-like delivery speed even though it ships from OneCall (state of Washington, from the “Go Zags” neighborhood)…

V-Moda Crossfade Wireless Closed Over-Ears for $100 [updated]

Grab your e-wallets! For a limited time, Amazon actual is offering the new condition V-Moda Crossfade Wireless closed-back over-ear headphones for $100 with free shipping. Limit up to three per customer at the sale price. Only the gunmetal color scheme is this low. The in-stock estimate is July 2nd, so this offer is starting to run out ~ don’t sleep on it if you are interested!

This headphone averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 720+ customer reviews and it has 240+ answered questions. A second second-generation model has been released, the Codex edition but it costs over $300.

Note that this $100 model does not have the double-folding technology (marketing name: cliqfold) found in the original wired Crossfade and the second generation Wireless. Note also that it does not support apt-X or apt-X HD. Heck, even among the first second-generation Wireless 2 models, only the “Rose Gold” color scheme supported apt-X. It was only with the second second-generation models, “the Codex”, that all three color schemes supported apt-X.

These headphones do have a 3.5mm input and from what people are saying, the wired performance of the wired and the wireless models is on par.

Having said all that, keep in mind that this is a headphone that people were enthusiastically buying for $300, so at one third of the price a number of its “comparative sins” may be forgiven…

[DEAD] EU: V-Moda Crossfade wired over-ears for 76 euro

UPDATE (early 6/30/19)
All the options under 100 euro have now sold out…

Monoprice Monolith 12ft RCA cable for $15 w/FUSS

Cables but they are not magic cables. At least not in terms of their price 🙂 For a limited time, the Monoprice website is offering their 12-foot Monolith RCA cables for $15 with free standard US shipping (the “FUSS” in the blog-post title here). Limit up to twenty per customer. They average 4.8 out of 5 based on 59 customer reviews over there…

These are part of the Monoprice Early Summer Clearance sale that features a few more cables and a couple of headphones ~ you can filter by product categories using the left hand side of their website…

Audio Technica A2000Z ART for $450 [MD]

Massdrop is now digging into the ART (no, not the Sigma ART lenses) Audio Technica headphones.

There’s no mention of warranty in the listing.

It has that AT “auto adjusting” headband mechanism. It is definitely a “deep cut” type of a headphone for the audiophile types. It certainly won’t steal any sales away from the Beats and Bose and Sonys…

1More Stylish truly wireless for $100

You are not buying truly-wireless headphones because you want to enjoy orchestral masterpieces at their absolute best. Quite the opposite, they are very digitally utilitarian but progress is being made with each new generation. Or something like that…

If you are sold on the 1More Stylish [that’s part of the product name I’m afraid] Truly Wirelss earphones, they are currently on sale for $100 by amazon.com (limit two per customer, ship in early July) and by Stacksocial

PS: Amazon may have price-matched Stacksocial’s offering???

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…

Tin Hifi P1 In-Ears for $149 w/FUSS [MD]

It’s tin time! No, not Tiny Tim and no, not the metal. It’s the Tin Hifi P1 in-ears, offered for the next four days and change for $149 with free US shipping at the members-only but free-to-join shopping club that is Massdrop. Now of course renamed to just Drop.

They have a removable MMCX cable, come with a 1-year warranty and include eight pairs of eartips [do y’all have a system on how to organize the various eartips included in the various in-ears???]. Orders will ship from Massdrop in late July 2019.

PWYW Music Bundle: 14 titles for $10+

Stacksocial is running a Pay What You Want promotion on music. Any payment over $1 gets you four titles but if you meet or beat the average ($10.62 as of the time of writing), you will receive another ten titles. All these are digital deliveries of course. The various options are described further down the page over there…

UPDATE: their semi annual sale includes among others the “Ultimate Logic PRO X Production Bundle” for $19. The bundle includes eight courses. Six of them are PRO Logic X centric, the other two are general purpose (Music theory and SongWriting).

PS: someone needs to create a course on how to pick a headphone from the Beyerdynamic DT 770/880/990 options 😉

Monoprice HR-5C Closed Over-Ears for $50 w/FS

More sale action at the Monoprice website, they are offering the new condition Monoprice HR-5C, a closed-back over-ear model going for $50 with free US standard shipping. You can buy up to twenty units per customer. It averages 4.8 out of 5 based on nine customer reviews over there. It is a limited time offer.

As you can tell from the picture, it may look familiar to you ~ check the various head-audio forums for details on the headphone and which other models are “related” to it 🙂

Dekoni Earpads for select Sennheiser HD58* and HD6** headphones for $35 to $65 w/free US S&H [MD]

Earpads get nowhere near the glory headphones and DACs and amps and other music sources get but they are quite important in both the human comfort but also have impact on the perceived audio quality. I could be writing more and more paragraphs but I won’t 🙂

Which brings us to this Dakoni pads listing at Massdrop offering their audio donuts that are compatible with a variety of popular Sennheiser headphones: HD 6XX, HD 650, HD 59X, and the HD 580. The HD 600 is feeling a bit left out at the moment 🙂

The price depends on the materials as follows:

+ Elite Velour for $35
+ Elite Hybrid for $55
+ Sheepskin for $60
+ Fenestrated sheepskin for $65

These will ship in mid-July 2019 by the vendor. Free shipping for US addresses, low cost shipping internationally. There is no mention of warranty in the listing which is brand new. As of the time of writing, it has six days and change to go. In previous listings, they sold over 2,200 units and they average 4.3 out of 5 based on 20+ customer reviews.

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!

Pre-order new Fostex T-XO II planars for $180

Planar continues to be all the rage these days and if you are on the planar steam train and patience is one of your virtues, Massdrop is launching a new headphone (an “In the Works” product) and accepting pre-orders for $180, it is the Fostex T-XO II planar magnetic headphones. The $180 price is good until July 18 in 2019. After that, the price will climb to $220 which is its “regular” price.

One thing of note with this headphone is that it is tuneable in two different ways: it includes two sets of damping foam and two sets of earpads, so you have four theoretical combinations to experiment with. Make sure you have a notebook standing by 🙂

That part about patience being a virtue? I was not joking! The shipping estimate for this is March 2020, that’s EIGHT months from the blog-posting date 🙂

Monolith audio sale including planars, open-back & electrostatics

Headphone sale at B&H’s Mega DealZone

New York’s critically acclaimed B&H Photo is now running a limited-time MEGA DEAL ZONE sale. This is a sale that aggregates many of their previous daily deals, but they are all running live at the same time, in parallel. Think of it as a more convenient version of a Woot-OFF where you don’t have to be glued to the screen all the time.

Some of the participating headphones are under the “PRO AUDIO” category ~ the horizontal banner with the participating product categories. Among them:

+ Pioneer HRM-7 DJ headphones for $90
+ Sennheiser HD8 DJ headphones for $150

+ Westone W60 six driver IEMs for $500

+ Polsen HPC-A30 budget studio monitors for $15

EU: Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Over-Ears for 100 euro [iOS]

From the looks of it this headphone may be doing its “farewell tour” of Amazon Germany, it is the new condition black color scheme with iOS remote control buttons of the closed-back over-ear Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 going for 100 euro with free shipping within Germany. Up to six per customer at the sale price. The other options are either sold out or more expensive…

Note that you can use the headphone with any device, it is not limited to iOS devices. The only downside of iOS buttons with other devices is that some of the remote control functions (eg volume control) may not work or not work as expected. Other than that, it is a 3.5mm input headphone…

PS: from the looks of it, Sennheiser must have settled the “Momentum” naming dispute in the US market, because as you can see at the US Senheiser website (en-us sub-domain) at select ex-Momentum product pages, you are greeted by this message:

MEE Matrix 3 Low Latency Bluetooth Over-Ears for $80

Mayhaps a price-match of the Best Buy daily deal, but Amazon actual is currently offering the new condition MEE Audio Matrix 3 closed-back over-ear bluetooth headphones for $80 with free shipping and handling with up to six per customer at the sale price. This is an apt-X low latency model, of interest for TV and video viewing as well. It has bluetooth 4.0 with apt-X and promises up to 24 hours battery life. It also plays music via 3.5mm input.

Note that there are multiple different models on the same listing, so you have to filter the customer reviews for this particular model…

Monoprice M600 Open Over-Ears for $70 w/free S&H

Curiosity may have killed the cat but it won’t kill your e-wallet if you are curious about Monoprice’s relatively new non-planar and curiously-named open-back over-ear M600 headphones. They are currently on sale for $70 with free US shipping at the Monoprice website

There they average 4.3 out of 5 but based on only three customer reviews so mayhaps of interest if you are the curious and boldly-going type. The only long review of the three is the 3-star review that brings the average down, written by a Sennheiser HD 600 fan, so you can get a good comparison. Said reviewer in there states that they are not big enough for his growing ears.

They are not stingy with the in-the-box accessories, you get a zippered carrying case, an extra set of earpads and a removable cable. The included accessories are shown on gallery picture #3 over there… One earpad set is velour, the other is leather (protein leather? it doesn’t say for sure). There’s no mic/volume on the cable but since it is removable you can use your own.

Woot Garage sale with Gaming Headsets including Sennheiser Game Zero for $100

Woot is running another iteration of their Garage sale. The headphones under “Electronics” have unfortunately sold out before I noticed the sale, but there’s a quintet of in-stock (as of the time of writing) gaming headsets under the Computers Garage sale as follows:

+ Sennheiser Game ZERO for $100

+ Skullcandy SLYR for $37~

+ Polk Melee for $24

+ HyperX Cloud PRO for $58

+ Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2 for $60

Check each individual listing for details on its condition, color options and warranty. The sale ends in about a week from the blog-posting date, except for items that sellout ahead of time ~ and the sellouts happen quite often during the “Garage sales”…
