Logitech UE-9000 ANC/bluetooth over-ears for $120

A Woot Garage sale running until March 19 (or earlier for many of the products that sell out), you can get the good old Logitech UE 9900 closed-back over-ear bluetooth with ANC headphones for $120 with a 1-year Logitech warranty. Free shipping for Prime members or $6 flat for non-members.

These also play music via 3.5mm audio input. They include a flat-inside solid headphone case which you can easily reuse for other over/on-ear headphones that can fit inside. Limit up to ten units per customer…

PS: “good old” because once upon a time these was among the recommended ANC headphones, especially in the price range. These days there seems to be a battle between Bose and Sony and some models from select other well-known audio/electronics makers. Or something like that. Personally I’m not a big fan of ANC, I prefer to use “in-mind” ANC 🙂

Blue Bag: MEE Audio X-series bluetooth earphones for $25

If you are a fan of the mild excitement of not knowing exactly which model you will receive in the mail, Massdrop is running another blue bag sale, this time is the MEE X-series bluetooth earphones.

+ MEE Audio X5 or X6 or X7 (chance of 30% each)
+ MEE Audio X8 (10% chance)

This being a random pick, you don’t get to pick the colors – they are what they are shown over there. There is a limit of two grab-bags per Massdrop account. There’s no mention of warranty. They will ship in late March 2019.

As usual, they also have “nilestone prizes” which include various AKG x Massdrop over-ears and the Hifiman HE-350 and the Noble X Universal. Think of these as lottery ticket type of chances, so don’t buy a grab bag just for a chance to win one of these.
