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. You pay $25, and for that price you are guaranteed to receive one of four bluetooth earphone models:

+ 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.

I had these a while back, from what I recall they were finicky, but at this price, if you are a flexible user, it’s not a bad price…

Monoprice True Wireless Earphones for $37 w/FS [updated]

Speaking of “truly wireless”, if you want something in-between [price-wise] the name-brands and the popular no-name brands on Amazon, the new condition Monoprice True Wireless Earphones (PID 30878, BT 4.2, iPX4) on sale for $37 [WAS $50] with free standard US shipping at the Monoprice website

PS: I have only used one model so far [check our unboxing of the Jaybird Run] so I can’t speak for the whole genre, but they exceeded in terms of utility. Audio quality was as expected, you don’t wear these because you want to enjoy complicated classical music works 🙂

Speaking of Monoprice, they have launching a new line of more premium charging cables, and as part of the new launch promotion, their AtlasFlex cables currently come with free standard US shipping. It is easier to ship a cable than to ship a turntable after all 🙂 They have three types, USB-C, Lightning, and microUSB, all ending in USB-A. They are available in three lengths and two colors. Prices range from $4 to $8, so it’s not “magic cable” pricing ^_^

UPDATE: for post economy purposes, I’ll add it here too, there is also a Clearance/Overstock sale with over 480 products including a mini guitar headphone amp for $8, a portable guitar amp for $18, banana plugs and all sorts of other random things…

And this critter is on sale for a limited time for $115 with free shipping at Focus Camera’s eBay store with a maximum of three per customer.
