If you like the idea of B&O Play’s lightweight minimalistic Form 2i On-Ears with old school rectangular pads, there is a sale of them at the Urban Outfitters websites website. The olive color scheme goes for $70, while the pink color scheme goes for $80. These are new condition.

Monoprice Lightweight Closed On-Ears for $8.88 + $2.49 S&H

If you are looking for a budget lightweight closed-back on-ear headphone that is tuned for modern music with a rather tasteful bass emphasis, what looks like a Monoprice clone (PID 13191) of the AmazonBasics model is on sale for $8.88 plus shipping (looks like it is $2.49 flat even for East Coast zip codes) at the Monoprice website.

The Monoprice clone averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 161 customer reviews at Monoprice. The AmazonBasics model averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 3200+ customer reviews at Amazon. I’ve also seen this design under other brand names. I’ve only heard the AmazonBasics model, so comparisons to the other models is based on how they look. AmazonBasics is not using exclusive designs, I’ve had other products in my hands that are both AB and non-AB (a tablet stand comes to mind) and they look exactly the same, but as usual, there’s a YMMV until you put them all side by side under a microscope 🙂

UPDATE: the sale price has pushed used prices under $100.

The non-Lightning model, as we mentioned before, goes for $65 at Costco and more elsewhere. A combination of the additional Lightning technology and “Apple Tax” contribute to the higher price 🙂
