Used Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature Over-Ears for $504

Or you can get them in “Used – Like New” condition for $612. The new condition price is $900~.

Used Bowers & Wilkins PX ANC/BT Over/On-Ears for $295

I just started a mini dive into Amazon Warehouse Deals, so expect some used posts in a row (depending on what I find). As with most things blog, the newer posts will appear above it, not below it, since reverse-chronological order makes the most sense for time-sensitive type of posting.

The new condition Bowers & Wilkins PX active noise cancelling bluetooth headphones go for $400 in new condition, but if you are comfortable with used, you can shave about 1/4th of the price by getting them in “Used – Very Good” condition for $295~ with free shipping at Amazon Warehouse Deals. They have two listings, both are damaged original packaging, with minor cosmetic imperfections on the item (item = the headphones in this case).

PS: I can’t tell from the shape of the earpads/earcups whether these are over-ear or on-ears, thus the all-encompassing “Over/On-Ears” 🙂

Bowers & Wilkins P5 S2 Closed On-Ears for $130

The first of two back to back B&W sales. First up, the new condition Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 Closed-Back On-Ears are on sale for $130 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual with up to three pairs per customer at the sale price. They average 4.3 out of 5 based on 68 customer reviews.

And a second sale, the new condition Bowers & Wilkins P3 S2 closed-back on-ear headphones are on sale for $100 with free shipping with up to three pairs per customer at Amazon by Amazon actual!

Used Bowers & Wilkins P9 Over-Ears for $535

In new condition, the stylish Bowers & Wilkins P9 closed-back over-ears go for $899 at most retailers, and for $799 by Audio Advice thru Walmart, but if you are comfortable with used headphones…

… thanks to the 20% off shopping cart discount at AWD (Amazon Warehouse Deals), there are three listings of these in “USED – Very Good” condition dropping to $535 with free shipping after the automatic 20% off in-cart discount. If you prefer a better condition, the “Used – Like New” go for $569~ after the in-cart discount.

PS: as with all these 20% off in-cart offers, only the listings that are sold and shipped by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual (not the marketplace sellers) are eligible for the coupon. Eligible listings show the 20% off next to them in this fashion [screenshot below]:

Used Bowers & Wilkins P9 for $573

Used Premium may sound like an oxymoron, but if it can save you $300+ over the new condition price, it may be a reasonable trade off 🙂

The closed-back over-ear stylish Bowers & Wilkins P9 Premium headphones go for $900 at authorized dealers, but if you are comfortable with used models, used prices start at $573~ in “Used – Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual.

As of the time of writing, all the used listings there at AWD are by AWD actual, but as always, make sure you pay attention who the seller of a product is at AWD, especially if they are not AWD actual or fulfilled by Amazon, since you don’t have the extra layer of protection of dealing with Amazon’s Customer Service, and Amazon’s shipment facilities, and Prime shipping (if a member).

Used Bowers & Wilkins P5 Closed-Back for $76+

We continue the Used-apalooza with the closed-back wired Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones, the first generation model that is available in USED condition in two options. Prices start at $76 in “Used – Good” condition for Used – Recertified and prices start at $85~ in “Used – Very Good” condition in Used (conventionally used) condition.

What is “Used – Recertified”? Bowers & Wilkins sells recertified versions of their headphones that carry that same warranty as the new condition. Amazon sells these recertified. As with all products, a percentage of them gets returned for various reasons. Some of them end up on Amazon Warehouse Deals. Since they were returned, they are sold as used. Since their previous condition was recertified, they are “Used – Recertified” 🙂

Used Bowers & Wilkins P7 for $227

The new condition wired closed-back over-ear Bowers & Wilkins P7 Headphones go for $350, but if you are comfortable with used, there is one unit of them available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $227~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual (AWD). [corrected the link]

PS: as usual with AWD, make sure you check who the actual seller of a product is, and avoid any of the “just launched” or “contact before buying” or low feedback sellers.

Used Bowers & Wilkins P9 for $573

If you are tempted by the Bowers & Wilkins P9 flagship headphones but don’t want to pay the new condition full price, Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD) comes to the rescue, sold by AWD actual (not iffy sellers) starting at $573~ in “Used – Good” condition. There is one listing at this price, but there are four of them in “Used – Very Good” for $611~, so there is a possibility of price pressure building over time if they don’t move fast enough to Amazon’s price-bot algorithms’ satisfaction. There’s also a “Used – Like New” in damaged original packaging for $650~. The new condition price is $900 at most sellers, except for Audio Advice which has it for $800.

Used Bowers & Wilkins P3 On-Ears for $43+

The latest model in the Bowers & Wilkins P3 model is the second generation. If you are going to get the first generation, you might as well get it used. Which brings us to the red color scheme of this model available in “Used – Good” condition (cosmetic imperfections, repackaged) going for $42.54 with free shipping at Amazon Warehouse Deals. Meanwhile at the same place, you can get the black color scheme in “Used – Like New” condition (original packaging) for $54~.

But wait, there are more options to this. The same listing has both the new condition and the officially recertified models. And each one of these has used options. And the headphones are available in four different colors each. So, as a summary, this listing shows the lowest price per color/option for the new condition and the recertified. Prices start at $74 for the recertified and $100 for the new condition.

Because of the way the Amazon listing is structured, there is a “used recertified” option. This means someone purchased the recertified headphones at Amazon, and then returned them. Then Amazon listed the return as a used option under the recertified listing, thus a “used recertified”.

PS: side-effects of this listing include fried brains 🙂

Bowers & Wilkins P5 S2 Square Pad for $180 OR USED for $98

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with used, you can get them for almost half off.

Or you can get them for $90~ in “Used – Good” condition from seller “Cellular Stream” (95%) with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime eligible.

Used Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wired Over-Ears for $177

Used Bowers & Wilkins P5 S2 for $98

The closed-back square-pad Bowers & Wilkins P5 S2 headphones are currently available in “Used – Very Good” condition (cosmetic imperfections, damaged original packaging) for $98~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals.

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Premium Headphones for $800

As part of the Memorial Day and Dads-n-Grads sales, the new condition brown color scheme of the closed-back over-ear Bowers & Wilkins P9 Premium Headphones is on sale for $800 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual with a limit of one unit per customer. This is not a lightning deal, so the expiration time is unknown. They average 4.5 out of 5 based on 24 customer reviews.

PS: there are plenty of units available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $640 through Warehouse Deals, but these being high on style/fashion, it may make the new condition more appealing for some who prefer pristine stylish headphones.

Used Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 earphones for $77

The Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 earphones go for $150 in new condition, but if you are comfortable with used, there’s a handful of “Used – Good” listings for $77~ and a few more in “Used – Very Good” for $82~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals. Given the high volume of used listings, you can wait and see if time and inventory will push the used prices further down. They average 3.8 out of 5 based on nearly 300 customer reviews.

Prices updated 5/22/17, they dropped about $4 since the original post on 5/20/17.

Used Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 In-Ears for $82

The Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2 In-Ears go for $150 in new condition at reputable dealers, but if you are comfortable with used condition earphones, and/or you don’t mind playing the waiting game, there are multiple listings of thees by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual with “Used – Good” being the price vanguard at $82, while a handful of “Used – Very Good” are available for $87~. Time may force prices to go down since there are multiple listings but that’s only one of the factors that seem to decide prices in the organized chaos that is Amazon 🙂

Recertified Bowers & Wilkins P7 with 2-yr warranty for $280 [or Very Used for $200] {updated}

UPDATE: this post has been rewritten after I discovered a better option…

Tthe closed-back over-ear Bowers & Wilkins P7 wired headphones are currently offered for $280 with free shipping and a 2-year warranty in Recertified condition by Amazon actual, with a limit of up to three units per customer. The current regular new condition price is $400 at authorized dealers. Given the warranty of the recertified, that’s a bang for the buck over the new condition.

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with heavily used headphones, and a higher purchase risk, marketplace seller “Cellular Stream” is offering “Used – Acceptable condition” for $200 with free shipping, with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free Prime shipping (if a member) and 30-day money back guarantee (IMPORTANT since this is a higher risk purchase). Per the listing, you only get the headphones, no other accessories. Make sure you select one “fulfilled by Amazon” or a seller you know and trust.

If you want a lower risk, Amazon Warehouse Deals’ own lowest price is $252 in “Used – Good” condition. Note that there are multiple options on the same product page, so make sure you are looking at the one you want (there’s wired, wireess and recertified on the same listing).
