Monday (EU): Sony and Anker Headphone sale

It is Sony day at the Amazon Germany Gold Box or as the cool kids in Germany like to call it, the Ange Bote 😉 Among the Sony products on sale they have the following headphones on sale for Monday August 19 in 2019:

+ ZX-310 closed on-ears for 15 euro
+ I had this headphone in my to-go bag for a while, I swear this must have been tuned in a moderately busy coffee shop because it sounds very serviceable there but when you listen to it in a quiet place, it sounds quite un-audiophile

+ ZX-330BT bluetooth on-ears for 39 euro

+ MDR-XB950N1 ANC/bluetooth closed over-ears for 90 euro two color options

+ WH-H900N ANC/bluetooth closed over-ears for 160 in three color options
+ yes, Sony has a multi-tier approach for their ANC/bluetooth combos

BUT that’s not all. When you further scroll through the daily deals, there’s also a combo Anker and Soundcore sale. Soundcare is an Anker sub-brand because it sounds more audio-ish than Anker? Anyway, their offerings for Monday:

+ Anker SoundBuds slim bluetooth earphones for 21 euro

Of DAP, DAC and Amp interest, they have a 20,000 PowerBank, and a USB-C charger, along with a couple of bluetooth speakers, and other assorted accessories…

NOTE also that this week is Woot’s birthday week, they turn fifteen, and they have various sale-a-brations throughout the week. But I have no advance notice of what will be offered when and at which price, so YMMV…

Monday (EU): Anker headphone sale

Anker is one of the poster-children companies who made their names online, at big marketplaces like Amazon. So it’s not surprise that they are frequently featured in high profile Gold Box offerings.

PS: “necklace” in contrast to the “neckband”. Necklace, between unlike wired-only earphones, the cable of necklace earphones sort of sits on your upper chest like a necklace. Assuming the earphones don’t keep on falling in and out [of love?] of your ears…

Their ZOLO Liberty (no +) model drops from $100 to $80 thanks to coupon code 9AAR5XQ4, sold by Anker Direct with the order fulfilled by Amazon.

There is certainly a level of convenience with the “Truly Wireless” genre, as long as they can stay in your ears [depending on what you are doing]. We have here a text and pictures unboxing of a different model, the Jaybird Run. It’s the only one I tried so far.
