Wedn: Polsen, Jabra, Definitive Tech, Etc

Headphones are indeed back at the daily deals for Wednesday 6/17/20 as follows:

At the B&H deals du jour it’s the closed-back Polsen HPS-A40 headphone that has a 3-level bass adjustment [I know, you cynics will say, “bad”, “worse” and “OMG it’s really bad”] for $50 with free US shipping… Optionally you can purchase this together with an AURAY headphone stand and get a 20% off discount on the price of the AURAY stand…

Best Buy is back in the truly-wireless universe with the new condition JLabs JBuds Air Executive truly-wireless going for $55 and as of the time of writing, they average 4 based on 640+ customer reviews over there…

Speaking of Best Buy, their aforelinked daily deals include a sale on a couple of Definitive Technology Soundbar systems with wireless subwoofers ($700 to $1075)…

Truly wireless is also the name of the game today at the NewEGG deals where the new condition Jabra Elite 65t goes for $100 with free US shipping…

Monday Truly Wireless: Skullcandy Indy, JLab Jbuds Air, Anker

No truly-wireless in yesterday’s daily deals, but they strike back today with two offers at the Best Buy daily deals, it’s the Skullcandy Indy going for $60 and the JLab Jbuds Air Sport going for $70… These for Monday June 15 in 2020 that is…

BUT the NewEGG daily deals save the day with a budget closed-back over-ear, the new condition red Pioneer SE-MS5T-R going for $31 with free US shipping…

Also at NewEgg, there’s the Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo (2019 update) truly wireless for $30 with free US shipping…

Thursday Daily Deals: JBL, B&O Truly Wireless, and Sony 1000XM3 bundled with 65″ UHD TV

It’s headphone day in the Best Buy daily deals for Thursday April 23 in 2020 as follows:

+ JLab Epic Executive neckband bluetooth earphones for $45

+ Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay E.8 2.0 truly wireless for $200

+ Sony WH-1000X Mark III headphones bundled with the Sony 65″ 4K UHD TV (with HDR) for $1030

But that’s not all. At Woot, they are offering the new condition JBL T450 wired closed on-ears for $20, available in either blue or white color-schemes, with up to three pairs per customer at the sale price. They come with a 1-year JBL warranty…

JLab JBuds Air Icon for $40 [truly wireless]

As part of their 12 days of deals, the Best Buy website is offering the new condition JLab Audio JBuds Air Icon Truly Wireless earphones for $40 with free store pickup and/or free shipping depending on the situation.

These average 4.2 out of 5 based on 225+ customer reviews at Best Buy.

My only experience with truly-wireless so far has been the Jaybird Run [see partial unboxing]. The low(er) battery life eats away at its benefits as the battery life of over/on-ear bluetooth headphones has increased dramatically… But that of course depends on your needs/preferences/priorities and so forth…

Now shipping: JLab Epic Sports bluetooth earphones

Another one of the new CES 2018 headphones is now in-stock and ready to ship! In either the black or the blue color schemes, you can get the new condition JLab Epic Sports exercise bluetooth (4.2, apt-X) earphones for $100 with free shipping, sold by the JLab Audio Amazon store, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so Prime members get them in two days or so.

As usual with new releases, these are for the early adopters, the “brand fans” and the reviewers. If you don’t need/want them right away, it’s smarter to wait for a few weeks to read more reviews and see whether there’s any discounting.

You can get a summary of the Stock Situation of some of the new CES 2018 headphones at our just updated Headphone Tracker …tracking post 🙂

JLab Audio JBuds for $3 (three color options)

You can buy as many as you like. They average 2.8 out of 5 based on 1800+ customer reviews, so don’t throw away your CIEMs 🙂

These are however an ADD ON item, so your order total must be $25 or higher ~ in any combination of products shipped or fulfilled by Amazon actual.

Woot Headphone Sale (these last longer)

In addition to their daily deals, Woot also has a variety of other groups of deals that last longer. One such is a headphone sale featuring five different headphones with various expiration dates in the future. They include:

[DEAD] JLab Diego earphones for $6

This lightning deal expired…

Two of the five color schemes of the new condition JLab Diego earphones are a Prime-elgiible Amazon lightning deal going for $6 with free Prime shipping (or with a $35+ order for non-members) until 6:50pm ET or earlier if sold out. They average 3.9 out of 5 based on 550+ customer reviews. Non-Prime members can buy it starting around 1:20pm ET.

JLab Audio FLEX DJ-Style Studio for $20 w/free S&H

If you were tempted by the JLab Flex headphones but didn’t want to pay big bucks for JLab (we do hard truths here, we don’t sponsor-worship), you can get the new condition JLab Audio FLEX DJ-Style Studio headphones for $20 with free shipping by eBay seller “Quick Ship Electronics” (99.7%, ship from USA with Economy shipping). This is model FLEX-SLV-BOX with a Universal mic on the included detachable cable. It comes with a 1-year warranty.

JLab Audio Epic Earphones for $15

A number of the color schemes of the new condition JLab Audio Epic earphones are on sale for $15 per pair, in new condition, by the official JLab store, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime-eligible. Three different models are intermixed with all the different colors, so if you are traversing the various options over there, pay attention to the color combinations.

[DEAD] Friday: JLab Flex Over-Ears for $29

Friday is over and so is this daily deal…

JLab Audio OMNI Bluetooth Over-Ears for $60

Another one of the double-digit utilitarian bluetooth over-ears is on sale, it is the new condition JLab Audio OMNI going for $60 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual.

[DEAD] Friday: JLAB Audio FLEX Closed Over-Ears for $35 shipped

JLab Audio Epic Earbuds for $16.46

Fleeing the bluetooth tyranny, there is also a wired version of the JLab Audio Epic Earbuds, and the black/gray color scheme of those is on sale for $16.46 at Amazon by Amazon actual with a limit of up to three units per customer. The usual shipping terms apply. As of the time of writing, this is restricted to Prime members!

NOTE: three different models and many different colors are sharing the same list of reviews, so you have to dig deeper into the reviews page. This particular model/color combined has over 400 of those customer reviews. Unfortunately there’s no way to calculate the review score average when you filter the reviews, and I can’t go through 400+ of them and calculate [and stay sane after doing so] 🙂

JLab Epic Bluetooth Exercise Earphones for $35 to $37

On the bluetooth front, the JLab Epic bluetooth waterproof exercise earphones are on sale for $36 with free shipping and free returns in three different color schemes at Groupon Goods. Over 1000 units sold through this listing. The discount ends 4/4/17 per the listing there.

On the other hand, if you are a Prime member, or plan a $35+ order otherwise, they go for $34.99 at Amazon by Amazon actual in the black or blue color schemes. The “cloud white” color scheme is not on sale. They average 2.7 out of 5 based on 1100+ customer reviews, so be sure to read up on them if you are not familiar with.

JLab Epic 2 Bluetooth Earphones for $80

The JLab Epic 2 bluetooth earphones are on sale at the moment in all three color schemes, in new condition, for $80 with free shipping by JLab with the orders fulfilled by Amazon (Prime eligible). They share the same reviews pool with other JLab models, so you have to drill down to the individual reviews per color to get a good picture of how they are doing.

JLabs JBuds for $2.50 + S&H

If you are planning to place a Woot order, you could add to it the JLabs JBuds earbuds for $2.50 per pair, in new condition, in the pink color scheme, with up to three units per customer and with a 30-day JLab warranty.

Shipping is $5 flat for everything you buy at Woot during a calendar day in the Central time zone, so it doesn’t make financial sense to buy just one pair of these and pay $5 flat shipping. On the other hand, if you were already buying something else, you would be already paying the $5 flat shipping, so the $2.50 earbuds would be added as a “snack”.

PS: there are a few more headphones at Woot as part of their “Woot Plus” sales. The “Plus” sales are not daily deals but last longer. Sort of like Groupon or NewEgg Flash.

JLab Flex Over-Ears for under $50 with coupon

Stacksocial.com has a new coupon, enter TAXES in your shopping cart to get a surprise discount. The percentage will vary by users. I got a 10% off discount when I added it to the shopping cart. The JLab Flex Over-Ear headphones go for $50 with free shipping before the coupon. If you get a 10% off discount, that makes it $45. If you get a 20% off discount, that makes it a $40. I don’t know what the other discount options are, but their shopping cart will do the math for you 🙂

The coupon is good for this weekend, one of the many retailers doing the “tax relief” promotions aka “spend your refund with us” or get some “retail therapy” to take the sting out of owing the IRS even more 🙂

Stacksocial doesn’t have reviews, but you can find 13 of them at amazon.com where they go for $70 and average 4.6 out of 5 based on a lucky 13 customer reviews. The “Flex” in their name is because they twist and flex (see pictures/videos).

For other headphones and earphones at Stacksocial, check their headphone search listings.

At Office Depot and Office Max brick and mortar stores, there is a sale on some J-Lab models, including an in-ear model for $4 and the Neon On-Ears for $10. Each one is available in multiple colors. I don’t recall which one of the in-ear models was on sale, maybe the JBuds Metal ~ their website does not have pictures of the outside boxes, so I can’t tell by appearance. The sale is only in-store. Sales like these typically end on Saturday nights.
