Saturday: AmazFit Powerbuds truly-wireless for $56

A sale of Amazfit smartwatches and fitness bands and such at Amazon also includes truly-wireless earphones from AmznFit. They have three different color schemes of their PowerBuds model going for $55…

Note that both the overall customer rating and the customer reviews are a superset of all the different products that reside on the same root product page. To find the reviews specifically for the earphones you have to go to the detailed review page for each color scheme and filter for its reviews (under the “All Formats” option)…

But that’s not all for the Saturday April 10 (2021) Amazon USA Gold Box. Their headliner deal of the day is the new condition JBL Flip 4 waterproof bluetooth speaker going for $60 with free US shipping. This is available in eight different color schemes, handy if multiple people use them in the same household – you can quickly tell who owns what by the color scheme!

Wedn: JBL Headphone Sale (and more)

If you are a fan of JBL headphones, head on over to the Woot deals du jour for Wednesday March 31st in 2021 where they have a JBL Audio sale featuring 16 products (one of which is sold out as of the time of writing). Of the 16, half of them are headphones and two are truly wireless. The rest are other JBL audio products…

Then at the Best Buy dailies we find the Geek-Squad refurbished Beats X bluetooth earphones going for $35…

Today, being March 31st, is a special day, WORLD BACKUP DAY, and to sale-a-brate this, both the B&H Photo dailies and the Amazon USA Gold Box dailies feature a variety of storage options from many well-known storage makers (WD, Sandisk, Samsung, Toshiba, G-Tech, etc)…

Sunday Part II: JBL 500BT, Jabra, Sony XB, Etc

February 2021 is saying goodbye with even more headphone deals of the day. These are good until 11:59pm of each retailer’s local time…

We start with a couple of offers at the NewEgg daily deals as follows:

+ Jabra Elite 25 neckband bluetooth earphones for $25

+ refurbished Sony “Extra Bass” XB-650-BT (bluetooth closed-back) for $45

Then we head on over to the Woot website where we find the reconditioned JBL LIVE 500BT bluetooth closed over-ears for $40 with a 1-year JBL warranty…

Last but not least we head on over to the Best Buy dailies where we find the new condition Plantronics BackBeat Fit 350 necklace-style bluetooth earphones for $40…

Also there you can get the Anker Soundcore Spirit PRO necklace-style bluetooth earphones for $14 after entering promo code 93XQJ88 in their shopping cart…

Tuesday: refurbished JBL (five options)

Loved more by the “common people” than the audiophiles/audiophoolz, JBL is often featured in daily deals because “the common people” [not just those in the Blur Pulp song] prefer JBL, Beats, Bose, Skullcandy, Sony, House of Marley, etc 🙂

Which brings us to today’s (12/8/20) daily deals at Woot, it’s a JBL Audio Sale of the factory reconditioned kind that includes eight products, five of which are headphones, three of which are over/on-ears (LIVE 500BT for $40, Tune 600 BT NC for $50, Under Armour Sport Train for $65), and two of which are bluetooth necklace-style earphones of the Under Armour co-branding type ($30 and $40 per pair)… These come with a 1-year JBL warranty…

As a reminder JBL is part of the ever-so-sprawling family that includes AKG and Harman Kardon, under the Note-able and Foldz-able leadership of Samsung 😉

PS: Proposed New Term for convenience: OverOns: an all encompassing term that includes both over-ear and on-ear headphones. Also useful when you can’t tell whether something is over-ear or on-ear, or whether it’s for one reason or another (eg earcup shape/size) somewhere in-between…

Sunday: Roland CS-10EM in-ears for $50

Good until Sunday 12/6/20 at 11:59pm eastern time, B&H Photo is offering as one of their deals du jour, the new condition Roland CS-10EM in-ears for $50 with free US shipping… This average 4.5 out of 5 based on 14 customer reviews as of the time of writing…

UPDATE: among the Best Buy daily deals for Sunday they have the new condition JBL FREE truly-wireless (second generation) for $55 in the black color scheme…

+ Jabra Elite bluetooth closed-back on-ears for $35

Monday: Bang & Olufsen E8 truly-wireless for $89 to $200

Monday is not a “bang and blame” day, that’s the weekend 😉 It’s a “bang & olufsen” day at the Woot daily deals where three of their truly-wireless BEOplay models are on sale for $89 to $200. More specifically:

+ E8 Premium for $89

+ E8 2.0 with Qi charging for $140

+ E8 2.0 Motion for $200

As usual, sale ends at 11:59pm central (on Monday 8/24/20 in this particular case) or earlier if any manages to sell out. They come with a 90-day Woot warranty…

Meanwhile necklace-style exercise-bluetooth are part of the Best Buy dailies with the blue-white JBL Endurance Sprint wireless going for $18…

PS: “necklace style” is what I call bluetooth earphones that are connected by a simple cable, which ends up hanging on your chest sort of like a necklace… Not to be confused with the “neckband style” which go behind the neck and typically have some part of the cable hardened [no, not like Attack On Titan, Annie sends her regards] because I suppose few people want a lose cable dancing on the back of their necks and getting caught onto things …behind your back? 🙂

Sunday: Plantronics BackBeat FIT 6100 bluetooth over-ears for $70

One of the deals of the day at the Best Buy website is the new condition closed-back over-ear Plantronics BackBeat FIT 6100 bluetooth headphones for $70 with free US shipping and/or free store pickup…

+ Voxoa VXH330 square-pad bluetooth closed-back for $30

+ JBL LIVE500 bluetooth over-ears for $60 after promo code 93XPK74

Thursday: JBL, Anker, Klipsch, Philips, Culture V1

The streak of headphones in high profile retailer daily deals continue for Thursday 6/4/20 as well with this lot:

+ among the NewEGG offers they have the new condition Philips SHB-5950-BK/27 neckband bluetooth earphones for $16.50, although the reviews are in the 3 out of 5 range…
+ also at NewEgg, a pair of Klipsch CB-5 Bookshelf speakers for $70, and a CC-5 Center Speaker for $60

+ among the Best Buy offers is the JBL LIVE 400BT closed-back bluetooth on-ears for $60

+ and at Amazon Germany it’s the Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 PRO truly-wireless for 100 euro
+ Anker really needs to optimize their model naming scheme ~ too many words and the thing that changes gets lost in the railroad!

It’s the truly wireless party train at Best Buy, as one of their Saturday April 4 (2020) deals du jour is the new condition JBL Live truly wireless going for $50.

But that’s not all for Saturday ~ if you want to feed your DAPs or PADs or tablets and such, Newegg.com is offering the 256GB Samsung microSD memory card for $40, and you can buy up to three of them at the sale price. These are sold by Newegg actual, not iffy marketplace sellers 🙂

Harman Kardon Soho closed bluetooth on-ears for $60

For a limited time, the official Harman Audio store on NewEgg is offering the new condition closed-back wireless on-ear HK Solo headphones for $60 with free US shipping. No coupon code, no rebate, just add to cart and proceed to checkout during this limited time promotion…

+ Even H4 Glasses for Your Ears (that’s what they call them, don’t blame me for this one 🙂 for $100

+ Beats Studio ANC/bluetooth over-ears for $180

Then we scoot on over to the Woot daily deals where they have the JBL E-55-BT closed back bluetooths for $50 in the blue color scheme, new condition with a 1-year warranty

+ Ukelele time, VIVICTORY Concert Ukulele 23 Inch Mahogany Aquila String with Beginner kit for $35 but with only a 90-day Woot warranty

Wedn: JBL earphone charging case for $15 after coupon

Wednesday loves headphones it seems because the NewEgg daily deals [now with a more organized website that makes it easier to quickly skim and scan the daily offers] include one headphone item, it is the new condition JBL headphone charging case going for $15 with free US shipping after you enter coupon code 93XPC48 over there. Limit up to three per customer at the sale price.

This is sold and shipped by NewEgg actual. The charging case promises UP TO 16 hours of playtime, and UP TO one hour of playtime with 15 minutes of charge. This of course depends on the individual earphones and such. Picture #1 shows wireless earphones but I’m not sure if they are included or not. This is an earphone-sized case, not a full-size headphone case. You can guestimate the size by looking at the size of the charging cable.

This is the first time I’ve seen this, so I know nothing Jon “Audio” Snow 🙂

Monday: JBL Reflect Mini 2 bluetooth earphones for $30 AC

NewEgg.com is also having its very own Pseudo-Prime sale and of those offers that have been unlocked as of the time of writing they are offering the new condition JBL Reflect Mini 2 necklace-style bluetooth earphones for $30 with free shipping AFTER you enter promo code EMCFTCUA36 in the shopping cart over there. But in order to do that, you must give them your email address (or be already logged-in with a NewEgg account). Free to join, it’s just the peculiarities of their marketing and/or because of MAP pricing?

Wednesday: JBL E55-BT Closed Over-Ears for $50

Wednesday 5/29/19 brings us some headphone action among the B&H Photo deals of the day, running until 11:59pm eastern time (or before then if it manages to sell out). It is the new condition JBL E-55-BT bluetooth headphones of the closed-back over-ears kind, going for $50 with free US shipping. Only the black color scheme is on sale at this low price. Some of the other colors are on sale for $75 when you “add to cart” but that’s a sale of their own, not linked to this daily deal that runs for 48 hours.

These have bluetooth 4.0 and also take 3.5mm audio input (1-button cable included). Note that this does NOT have NFC. NFC can be great when there are Bluetooth Air Wars in the areas you try to use your devices: multiple music sources and/or multiple music receivers ~ more so if you have more than one music source paired with a specific music receiver and they are both/all active at the same time 🙂

Tuesday (EU): JBL and Ultimate Ears Bluetooth Speakers
