Thursday: Sennheiser M2IEi In-Ears for $36 w/FS

Sennheiser is back in the Newegg deals of the day and this offer is good until Thursday 3/4/21 at 11:59pm pacific time. It is the new condition Sennheiser Momentum M2IEi in-ears going for $36 with free US shipping, sold and shipped by NewEgg actual. Up to ten per customer at the sale price. No promo code needed…

Meanwhile at the Thursday Best Buy dailies they have the new condition Plantronics BackBeat FIT 505 closed-back on-ear bluetooth headphones for $50…

And we close Thursday at the Woot dailies where under “Computers” they offer the new condition Microsoft Surface headphones in the gray color scheme with a 1-year Microsoft warranty for $111. Up to ten per customer at the sale price…

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…
