Also with 4 days and change left [from blog-posting time] is the new condition Koss KPH30i lightweight on-ears offered for $20 plus shipping in your choice of color scheme [three options are available]. They do come with a mic/remote combo, as do other Massdrop x Koss products. They will ship end of November and come with the usual Koss lifetime warranty.

Speaking of Massdrop, if you are interested in closed-back headphones, they have a running Interest Check thread on closed-back headphones. If there any closed headphones you’d like to see offered there, this is a good opportunity to convince MD to bring them but also fellow shoppers to want them, so they can add their voice/support for model-of-interest 🙂

It averages 4.1 out of 5 based on 900+ customer reviews. I will be getting a couple with my next Amazon order out of curiosity. Here’s a picture from their product gallery in the meantime:

The price of the cable remains 99c, but the free shipping promotion ended. So strategically, this now is best to be added to a larger order where it’s so small and lightweight it won’t affect the S&H fee much (if any)…
