Used M-Audio M50 Over/On-Ears for $32

The M-Audio M50 Over-Ears (they look more on-ears to me looking at the pictures, but I can’t tell for certain since I haven’t seen them in person) go for around $80 in new condition, but if you want to save more than half off, you can get them in “Used – Good” condition (various cosmetic imperfections, damaged original packaging) for $32~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual, or $36~ in “Used – Like New” condition (damaged original packaging).

PS: when shopping at Amazon Warehouse Deals, make sure you check who the actual seller is. There are many iffy or “Just Launched” or “email me before you buy” or low-rated marketplace sellers over there. A safe bet is to buy from Amazon Warehouse Deals actual (Amazon’s own persona), and recognizable marketplace sellers (nationally known retailers or recognizable authorized local A/V retailers with Amazon stores).

M-Audio HDH-50 Studio Headphones for $95

The closed-back over-ear M-Audio HDH-50 headphones are currently offered for $95 at upstart online website Jet.com. When you add the product to the shopping cart and continue through with the checkout process, you will discover that the seller is “NYC Electronics”. I am not familiar with this seller, so I don’t know what’s their reputation.

Jet does not tell you who the seller is before you add something to the shopping cart. Here’s how it looks after you add it to the cart and proceed through with the Checkout process (you don’t have to place an actual order to see it):

M-Audio MicroDAC (USB DAC) for $53

The M-Audio Micro DAC, which is a USB DAC, is on sale for $53 with free shipping, with a limit of three per customer at Amazon by Amazon actual. It takes USB Audio and has two 1/8″ physical outputs, digital and headphone-out. Its list price was $99 from what I recall, but somehow the Amazon listing switched it to $53~.

PS: the Micro refers to its size, not Micro-USB input. It has standard USB input.

M-Audio HDH-50 Studio Over-Ears for $95

The M-Audio HDH-50 studio headphones (closed over-ears) go for $200 in new condition, but up and coming retailer Jet.com has them on sale for $95, perhaps as a blockbuster promotion. Not only that, but they also have a built-in volume discount, the more units you buy, the lower the per unit price you pay.

One word of caution is that Jet does not tell you upfront who the actual seller/shipper of an item is. It may be Jet themselves, or any other seller that is doing business on the Jet website. They are trying to keep it simple, but this is an important piece of information that they should be upfront about it.

Regardless if you are not a fan of Jet, you can get them in “Used – Like New” condition by Wisconsin’s Pixel PRO Audio store for $110 with free shipping through Amazon Warehouse Deals. They ship from Pixel, so no Prime fast shipping.

Sennheiser HD 650 + M-Audio AV32 Monitors + Blue Yeti USB Mic for $500

If you happen to need all three of these (sounds like an NBA play by play line?), then this is a good deal, $500 gets you these three new condition items: the open-back Sennheiser HD 650 headphones, the M-Audio AV32 10W Studio Monitor speakers, and the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone at Amazon by Amazon actual.

The speakers currently go for $100 and the Yeti for $130 (Sting is still looking for him), making the HD650 a very reasonable $270. Now if you don’t need (or can sell/trade/gift) the two extras, then it becomes a more complicated decision.

This is not the only bundle offer, there are more Sennheiser + Gifts/Bundles offers running at Amazon.

M-Audio HDH-50 studio headphones for $95

We now have a new condition pair of headphones in a close-out promotion, it is the M-Audio HDH-50 studio headphones offered for $95 with free shipping by AudioSavings on eBay (99.2%).

Sennheiser HD 650 + MAudio AV32 Speakers + Yeti USB Mic for $500

If you happen to need all three of these (or can sell/trade/gift the ones you don’t need), Amazon is back with another Sennheiser HD 650 bundle. For $500, in new condition, you get the HD 650 headphones, the M-Audio AV32 Professional Studio Monitor Speakers (3″ Woofer; $100 on their own) and the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone (whiteout color scheme; $120 on its own). So within this bundle, assuming you place that value on those two items, the HD 650 is valued at $280.

The Gift Card Bundle is back as well, but it only comes with a $100 Gift Card this time for a total price of $500. Not a good deal.

PS: this search link shows some of the other Sennheiser Amazon Gift Card bundles currently available.

All these are offered from Amazon actual. No coupon or rebate is needed. They are the only ones offering this bundle, so you don’t have to worry about marketplace sellers. Although in all likelihood, they’ll ship the three items as if you purchased them regularly. I doubt this is a “factory bundle”.
