Another variant of the Woot Electronics Garage Sale good until 11/24/21 at 11:59pm central time is running. These are longer-running than daily deals but items do sell-out ~ just page-down over there and you’ll see quite a few sold out…

BUT as of the time of writing, three audio-related items remain in-stock as follows:

+ RHA TrueConnect truly-wireless for $70

+ Klipsch R-2650-CSM II in-ceiling speaker for $100

+ Onkyo CS-265 Home Audio System with CD, Hi-Fi Stereo System, & Bluetooth for $150

Sunday: Klipsch R5 Active bluetooth earphones for $20

For some audiophiles, it’s “Beats and Bose they break my bones” but in the second tier of popular (with the common people) headphone makers we find Skullcandy and Klipsch, especially in the earlier days when it was trendy with i-Device crowd. Not sure why I’m writing all this as a preface but…

… good until Sunday 12/13/20 at 11:59pm eastern time [or earlier if and only if it sells out] you can get the new condition Klipsch R5 Active bluetooth necklace-style earphones for $20 with free US shipping at B&H Photo where it is one of their deals of the day…

There is a certain utilitarian aspect to the necklace-style bluetooth earphones, they are easier on the head for half-day sessions (eg watching a class or lots of Zooms/meetings in a row, or listening to audiobooks or long YouTube streams) as opposed to the more clamp-y and heavier over-ears and on-ears…

And with battery life being what it is, you may have to use multiple bluetooth devices, which is not a bad idea: rotate different types of headphones, so your ears are not constantly physically and musically presented with the same thing (eg some earphones, some over/on-ears, some truly-wireless, some clip-ons, etc)…

PS: speaking of clip-ons, this is a must have for every household, the good old $19 Koss KSC-75 clip-ons (no mic/remote)… OR if you want a mic/remote, you can wait until the Massdrop edition returns…

PS2: I am waiting for my Massdrop KSC-75X to arrive, I was planning to do a comparison with my prehistoric KSC-75 [which I rescued from the clearance bin at an office supply store many years ago], but unfortunately the KSC-75 became hyper-partisan [one side does not play music any more], so I have to get/find another KSC-75 to do a comparison 🙂

PS3: in the audiophile world, small differences are often dramatically exaggerated, but on rare occasion dramatic differences do exist. I picked up the Panasonic RP-HS46 closed clip-ons for utilitarian usage, and the difference in music appreciation between them and the open KSC-75 is night and day. Not to spoil any future reviews I may or may not write, but the HS46 are just NO for music. Okay for YouTube and such, but NO for music 🙂 Granted they are around $12 but still…

UPDATE: some head/audio related activity at the Sunday Best Buy website deals du jour:

+ BuddyPhones wired on-ears for kids for $15

+ 1-year prepaid TIDAL Hifi music subscription for $90
+ averages $7.50/month

+ Anker Soundcore Liberty Air X truly-wireless for $80

+ Feed the DAPs and PADs and such: PNY micro-SDXC card sale, from 512GB down to 32GB, with the 256GB Elite X for $35 being the best value for money in terms of GB/$ (like we buy bulk groceries type of thing)

Saturday: name-brand truly wireless, $50 to $100

Saturday is name-brand truly-wireless (TW) at Woot Sellout, the sale good until 11/28/20 at 11:59pm central time or earlier if sold out:

Meanwhile the Chi-Fi festivities continue at Aliexpress where you can also filter the search results by only looking at marked 11-11 sales. Just like other holidays, 11-11 is more of a state of mind now, it’s not a mere 24 hour period 🙂 Like Black Friday is the whole week, if not the whole month 🙂
