Tuesday Headphone Deals: Sony WH-1000X M2 for $290, and Gaming Headsets

It’s headphones day in the Tuesday daily deals, starting with the Amazon USA gold-box where there’s a big computer gaming sale that includes the HyperX Cloud II gaming headset going for $70 in two color options, and the Corsair HS70 wireless going for $60… Some of the other deals are audiophile-adjacent (eg storage, fast routers for high-quality streaming, powerful desktops for music processing, and so forth)…

Sony has been trying to break into the upper end of the smartphone market without a lot of success, but they managed to storm into the $300-ish ANC + wireless over-ear headphone category and give BOSE a serious run for its money. We are already at the third generation of this attempt, but if you are okay with the second generation, the new condition WH-1000X M2 closed over-ears with ANC and bluetooth 4.1 with LDAC is on sale for $290 with free shipping for Prime members [or $6 flat for non-members], with a 1-year Sony warranty and up to ten units per customer at the sale price.

PS: note that while LDAC is great, you also need a music source that supports this, otherwise the connection will happen at the highest common denominator protocol…
