Tuesday: Microsoft Surface Headphones V1 for $135 [was $150]

UPDATE: this dropped from $150 to $135 as of a later-in-the-day recheck of the listing…

Good until Tuesday 12/29/20 at 11:59pm central time (or earlier if they happen to sell out) you can get the new condition Microsoft Surface headphones for $150 with a 1-year warranty as one of the Woot daily deals. Free shipping if you one-time-link your Prime and Woot accounts, otherwise you pay a flat shipping fee for all purchases made during the calendar day (in the central time zone).

This too of course is an ANC/bluetooth combo, because that’s where the consumer gold is. There’s only so many people willing to buy $1000 FOCAL headphones even though they spend more on all kinds of semi-frivolous tech and non-tech purchases 🙂

This is model MIC-MXZ-00001, V1 (aka first generation) in the gray color scheme, with up to ten pairs per customer.

Now that both Microsoft and Apple proper have over-ear headphones the clock is ticking for a Google over-ear headphone 🙂

UPDATE: Beyerdynamic returns to the NewEgg daily deals for Tuesday with the Beyerdynamic Aventho. Price will be revealed at 3am ET over there…

Last Call for Prime Dayz 2020: Microsoft Surface 2 for $200

One last deal before we say goodbye to the Prime Dayz of 2020, it is the new condition Microsoft Surface 2 headphones going for $200 for Prime members during the “Prime Daze” 🙂

PS: as a fan of the Zune, I feel I must needs mention Microsoft’s poor management record on music/audio, OMG THEY KILLED ZUNE, you BASTARDS! In addition to Zune, they also launched newer music efforts which they also killed off shortly thereafter:)

PS2: of course not just Microsoft has a bad music record, The Great Satan of Search (aka Google) is pulling the plug on their own Google Play Music-selling digital store and killing off their nice “Google Play Music” app and forcing you to …create a YouTube channel if you want to have online access to your previously purchased music and playlists.

PS3: what do you expect when the tech world has become an archipelago of walled-garden island-monopolies?

PS4: wow that’s a great line in PS3, I will keep using it 🙂

Prime Day deal: Microsoft Surface headphone for $190

Everybody it seems is trying their hands at headphones these days, so it was only a matter of time before we got a “Surface” headphone. This typically went for $250 on sale, but if you had been waiting for a sale, you can thank Prime Day 2019, because the new condition model is currently on sale for $190 for Prime members only…

This is trying to compete with the hard-fought $300-ish crew of name-brand closed-back over-ear headphones with ANC and bluetooth. In this case, the bluetooth is version 4.2. This averages 3.8 out of 5 based on nearly 100 customer reviews and it has over 50 answered-questions by viewers like you…
