Used Blue Satellite Bluetooth for $228

The prices are dropping for the used Blue Satellite Bluetooth headphones. They go for $400 in new condition but used prices are almost cut in half, starting at $228 in “Used – Very Good” condition with multiple listings at Amazon Warehouse Deals. This links shows Amazon’s summary of both used/new.

This link shows all the used options, which includes “Used – Like New” for $242~.

There are multiple listings for each condition, so if you are not in a hurry to receive it, you can babysit it and see if they drop further. Multiple factors play into the used prices at Amazon, it’s hard to predict, since supply and demand are not the only things that affect price (eg price of the new condition model drops or goes up, prices go up or down for seasonal sales, etc, etc, etc).

The headphones average 3.1 out of 5 based on just 13 customer reviews, so both numbers are cause for concern. In other words, what the numbers are suggesting, if you are not already familiar with these headphones, be sure to read up on them before buying.

Blue Mic LOLA Headphones + Yeti Blackout Mic for $290

It’s a “value meal” among the latest Dell Deals. As a combo, for $290 with free shipping you can get the Blue Yeti Blackout Mic + LOLA headphones for a limited time.

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used, and you don’t need the warranty, they have now dropped to $456~ in “Used – Very Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual. It is good to have choices 🙂

Used Blue Ella Planars for $491

The new conditinon Blue Microphones Ella planar-magnetic headphones go for $700, but if you are comfortable with used headphones, you can get them for $491~ in “Used – Very Good” condition (minor cosmetic imperfections; damaged original packaging) or $521~ in “Used – Like New”, both of these offers by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual. These are also powered, not just planars, they have a built-in amp.

Used Blue Satellite Bluetooth for $295

The Blue Microphones Satellite bluetooth headphones where the last to roll out when Blue expanded their headphone line-up. It remains at $400 in new condition, but if you don’t want to wait for discounts and you are comfortable with used condition headphones, they are available in “Used – Good” condition for $295~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals and they have multiple listings in “Used – Very Good” for $314~. Since there are multiple listings, price pressure may lead to further discounting in the future.

In other Blue Mic action, their unpowered LOLA sale ended, now both colors go for $250. However, there is some hope, because Amazon’s own price did not go up, they just yanked their own offer, so the lowest price is $250 by other sellers. It is possible that when Amazon’s own offer returns, it may be at the sale price. Most of the times it is not, but you never know.

However, the powered Mo-Fi in the black color scheme continues to go for $210 with a 2-4 weeks shipping estimate.

The shipping estimate for these is 2-5 weeks. Amazon’s shipping estimates can be conservative at times, however, if you need something by a specific date or a specific occasion, do not assume they’ll arrive faster or on-time.

A quick refresher on the Blue Microphones line-up. The powered Mo-Fi were their claim to fame, along with their unique design. Then came Lola (a wired, unpowered, un-wireless headphones). Then at CES 2017 they introduced a trio of new headphones. Mo-Fi got a follow-up in the powered headphones category with the Sadie. They also entered two new market segments, planar-magnetics with the Ella (how does it sound with Ella Fitzgerald?), and bluetooth with the Satellite.

Blue Microphones Lola Over-Ears for $137

Two weeks ago these were going for $175, but right now the new condition closed-back Blue Microphones Lola Over-Ears are on sale for $137 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual. Limit up to three per customer. This is the wired headphone with the unusual design. Only the black color scheme is on sale. It has a “1 to 2 months” shipping estimate, which sometimes (but not always) could be a sign that the offer is towards its end.

PS: this is not a powered headphone. Their powered headphones are the older Mo-Fi, and the newer Sadie. Their planar magnetic is the Ella.

Used Blue Satellite bluetooth for $330

The new Blue Satellite bluetooth headphones are now in-stock for $400 at various retailers and they’ve been around long enough that there are multiple used listings of them at Amazon Warehouse Deals going for $330 in “Used – Very Good” condition.

Now shipping: Blue Sadie powered headphones for $400

The Blue Microphones Sadie powered headphones that were announced at CES 2017 are now in-stock and ready to ship for $400 at Amazon by Amazon actual. For some reason Amazon put them on the same listing as the older Mo-Fi, so when reading reviews and perusing, make sure you are looking at the Sadie, not the Mo-Fi.

PS: this should not be confused with the planar-magnetic Blue Ella which is in-stock for $700 at various retailers.

Pre-order new Blue Ella Planars and Sadie Powered

All aboard the Planar Hype Train! Blue Microphones revealed a trio of new headphones at CES 2017, and two of those three are now available for pre-order as follows:

+ “Ella” planar-magnetic closed-back for $700 at amazon.com and adorama.com

+ “Sadie” powered closed-back for $400 at amazon.com and adorama.com

+ “Satellite” (bluetooth, ANC, and obviously powered) has no price or release date or detailed specs yet

PS: I am using the Powered category here on this blog to denote headphones that have a built-in amplifier IF they are not bluetooth/ANC. In other words, the built-in amp is a feature, not a necessity. Or something like that 🙂

PS2: once I finish “digesting” all the new CES 2017 headphones, I will update the Headphone Tracker by adding the new models and removing the ones that have been steadily in-stock. So it will the contain pre-release and hard-to-find headphones only. It’s easier to do one big update instead of doing many small incremental updates, so stay tuned! It will be completed this week #EmptyPromises 🙂

Sennheiser HD 650 and Fiio E18 Kunlun and BlueMic Ultimate USB Mic for $510

Last week’s Sennheiser HD650 triple bundle sold-out/disappeared quickly, but Adorama.com has another Sennheiser HD650 triple bundle. You pay $510 with free shipping, and for that you get three new condition products, the open-back over-ear Sennheiser HD 650 headphones, the Fiio E18 Kunlun Android Phone USB DAC & AMP, and the Blue Microphones Ultimate USB Mic (Blackout Edition). Offer is good until 5/29/16 or earlier if it sells out.

Sennheiser HD 650 + M-Audio AV32 Monitors + Blue Yeti USB Mic for $500

If you happen to need all three of these (sounds like an NBA play by play line?), then this is a good deal, $500 gets you these three new condition items: the open-back Sennheiser HD 650 headphones, the M-Audio AV32 10W Studio Monitor speakers, and the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone at Amazon by Amazon actual.

The speakers currently go for $100 and the Yeti for $130 (Sting is still looking for him), making the HD650 a very reasonable $270. Now if you don’t need (or can sell/trade/gift) the two extras, then it becomes a more complicated decision.

This is not the only bundle offer, there are more Sennheiser + Gifts/Bundles offers running at Amazon.

Sennheiser HD 650 + MAudio AV32 Speakers + Yeti USB Mic for $500

If you happen to need all three of these (or can sell/trade/gift the ones you don’t need), Amazon is back with another Sennheiser HD 650 bundle. For $500, in new condition, you get the HD 650 headphones, the M-Audio AV32 Professional Studio Monitor Speakers (3″ Woofer; $100 on their own) and the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone (whiteout color scheme; $120 on its own). So within this bundle, assuming you place that value on those two items, the HD 650 is valued at $280.

The Gift Card Bundle is back as well, but it only comes with a $100 Gift Card this time for a total price of $500. Not a good deal.

PS: this search link shows some of the other Sennheiser Amazon Gift Card bundles currently available.

Fiio X3 II DAP + Blue MoFi Headphones for $390

Time for another bundle, this time it is the second generation Fiio X3 II digital audio player bundled with the Blue Microphones Mo-Fi powered headphones, all together for $390 with free shipping at Adorama.com. Offer ends by 12/22/15.

Sennheiser HD 650 + M-Audio AV32 Studio Monitors + Yeti USB Mic for $500

In the second of three crazy Sennheiser HD 650 bundles, Amazon bundles it with two different products, the M-Audio AV32 Studio Monitors (speakers pair) along with the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone. All these are offered from Amazon actual. No coupon or rebate is needed. They are the only ones offering this bundle, so you don’t have to worry about marketplace sellers. Although in all likelihood, they’ll ship the three items as if you purchased them regularly. I doubt this is a “factory bundle”.

Audio Technica M40x + Blue Microphones YETI USB Condenser Mic for $130

Back to the M40x we go, where we find it bundled with the Blue Microphones YETI USB Condenser Mic for $130 with free shipping at Adorama.com. That’s a straight up sale price, no coupons needed, no rebates. Offer expires 12/14/15.
