Monoprice M600 Open Over-Ears for $100 w/FS

We have a group of offers at the Monoprice website, starting with week #2 of their Early Black Friday sales headling, headphone-wise, by the new condition open-back over-ear Monoprice M300 headphones, a name certainly not not an homage to the good old Sennheiser HD 600 🙂 This headphone is currently on sale for $100 with free standard US shipping, instead of its standard price of $130. It is not eligible for the weekend coupons. Limit up to 20 per customer at the sale price.

Monoprice is also running a limited time Home Theater sale with a variety of systems, speakers, subwoofers, mounts and the obligatory (and necessary mind you) audio accessories.

Back to the headphones, they also have a sale on one of their new recently released bluetooth headphones, the new condition BT-400 Closed Over-Ears go for $33 with free standard US shipping. Just like the previously mentioned 8323s, these too support apt-X.

Monoprice 8323 with Bluetooth Closed Over-Ears for $20 w/FS

For a limited time [and not eligible for the weekend coupon], the Monoprice website is offering the new condition Monoprice 8323 with bluetooth closed-back over-ear headphones for $20 with free standard US shipping. Limit up to twenty pairs per customer at the sale price.

This is a newer model based on the wired 8323s. 8323 was their Monoprice PID, and because of the way their website works, new products get assigned new and unique PIDs. Thus the PID for the bluetooth 8323 is actually 24735 🙂 The customer reviews of the two are mixed together so keep that in mind ~ the vast majority of them there are for the older wired model.

I’ve had the wired model and certainly for the price it was a great deal but note that if you have a big head, this may be a tight fit. I could just barely fit inside and they do take up volume on your head when expanded.

They come with apt-X, and considering the price, one has to wonder exactly what the licensing fee for apt-X is and whether some of the more high-end headphone manufacturer (s’ fans) are using the apt-X fee as an excuse to justify the lack of it 🙂

PS: don’t forget to also check their Overstock sale of nearly 500 items for some randomness…

Sunday: Monoprice XXX Triple Driver IEMs for $30

Good for Sunday only, coupon code VET25 drops the price of the new condition Monoprice XXX Triple Driver IEMs from $35 to $30. They come with free standard US shipping, so you get them delivered for free [unlike Prime, a rarity at Monoprice]. IF you want many more of these or you are planning a larger order of eligible items, coupon VET150 gets you 20% off orders of $150. Mayhaps they are all getting Triple XXX IEMs for Christmas this year? 🙂

These average 4.4 out of 5 based on 88 customer reviews at the Monoprice website…

New Arrivals: Monolith Electrostatic Headphone System

The Monoprice Monolith headphone party continues with a new open-back electrostatic headphone system, now in-stock for $699 plus shipping. This comes with a portable headphone amplifier. Audio comes in (to the amp) from a 3.5mm audio input and goes out to the headphones through the electrostatic headphone jack. Annotated screenshot of the areas of interest of the portable headphone amp below:

Now (FINALLY) shipping: Monolith Portable HeadAmp + DAC with THX AAA

Wallets, open wide! Here comes THX! One of the CES 2018 [yes, that’s almost a year ago] products offered at the Monoprice Big Bang then is now ___finally___ shipping! It is the new condition Monolith Portable Headphone Amplifier and DAC with THX AAA Technology, PID 24460, going for $280 plus shipping. Come on Monoprice, at least give it free shipping after 10 months of waiting 🙂

Digital inputs are of the micro-USB and 3.5mm optical kind, while the analog input is a standard 3.5mm. The 3.5mm is shared between optical and analogue Line IN. Lots of details and a couple of charts at the aforelinked page. There’s also a sub-1MB PDF user manual linked to there that is 22 pages long. There we learn that the volume knob is also a power button, a convenient way to save up on having yet another button ~ as long as it doesn’t accidentally turn on while in your bag.

PS: PID is the Product ID, a unique identifier given to every Monoprice product. The larger the number, the more recently it has been added to their website’s database.

PS2: the Monolith line-up at Monoprice has expanded so much so that they have created an audiophile-magazine splashy-ad type of a website to highlight all the products. There’s a total of eight Monolith branded headphones now. Guess the names before looking and win fabulous (virtual) prizes ^_^

Monoprice M1060C Closed Planar Headphones for $250

This is an old fashioned sale, no coupon code or minimum purchase required to get these deals at Monoprice:

+ closed-back over-ear M1060C planar-magnetic headphones for $250 with free standard US shipping
+ UPDATE: offer ends 11/6/18

Now shipping: Monolith Liquid Platinum HeadAmp by Cavalli

One more headphone-related product is now in-stock and shipping at the Monoprice website. It is the new condition Monolith Liquid Platinum Headphone Amplifier by Alex Cavalli, PID 33305, going for $700 plus shipping. The number of new products at Monoprice has increased so much so that this is in the 33,000s. The good old 8323 closed over-ears were merely in the 8000s…

Monoprice Headphone Stand (Aluminum) for $18 w/free S&H

Monoprice is back with a handful of special audio-related offers, some of which get unconditional free standard US shipping without coupons or other songs-and-dances…

+ Headphone Stand (PID 24462) for $18 with free standard US shipping
+ full aluminum construction; no assembly required

+ Monolith by Monoprice 6ft RCA Cable for $18 with free standard US shipping

+ Onyx Series Auxiliary 3.5mm TRS Audio Cable, 3ft for $1.05

+ Monolith by Monoprice Amplifier/Component Stand for $24

+ Lightweight on-ear headphones for $19
+ unboxing post coming soon [pictures taken; I must process them and write up the blog-post]…

Monoprice Monolith USB DAC for $85 w/FS

It’s a sale, not coupon-based at the Monopriced of select audio products, headlined by the new condition Monolith USB DAC, Product 29512, going for $85 with free standard US shipping during this promotion. Think of this as a DragonQuest AudioFly type of a competitor device. Okay, it’s AudioQuest Dragonfly ^_^

Purchasing a product that gets free shipping also helps (or eliminates depending on weight/etc) the S&H fee of other Monoprice products, so you may also be interested in these sales which don’t get free shipping on their own:

+ Monoprice Lightweight Closed On-Ears, PID 13191, for $10
+ these have shared lineage with the AmazonBasics on-ears and also sell under a couple of other brand names. I’ve had both but not at the same time ~ from memory they seem to have a similar sound signature, a pretty good value for modern music with some modest and rather tasteful bassiness ~ considering their price
+ an unboxing post is in the works, followed by a review

+ Wired Earbuds with Mic/Remote, PID 18591, for $2.49
+ very serviceable for the price, the kind you keep in bags and cars and workplaces and give to kids and friends and relatives who break or lose things all the time
+ these are of utilitarian use, don’t throw away the Tennmak PROs 🙂

Monoprice MP Gaming headphone for $13 w/FS

If you are looking for a basic gaming headset with free US shipping [and don’t want to hunt for coupons and rebates and such], for a limited time, the Monoprice website is offering the new condition Monoprice MP Gaming for the very specific price of $13.41 with free standard US shipping. These average 3.4 out of 5 based on 14 customer reviews.

Speaking of Monoprice, if you are going to place an order anyway, there’s a handful of earphones that go as low as $2.49 per pair towards the middle of their Spooky sales. If your order already qualifies for free shipping, or if the items you are buying are lightweight [eg earphones], then they have minimal impact on the S&H fee.

PS: unrelated, but in the next few hours I will do another dive into Amazon Warehouse Deals, so expect a few posts to come out of that adventure [assuming they are notable deals of course]…

Now shipping: Monoprice HR-5 (Open or Closed options)

Monoprice continues to roll out new products, and among them are two new headphones under the HR-5 model. One pair is open-back, the other pair is closed-back. They sell for $70 each and they are, as of the time of writing, in-stock and shipping at the Monoprice website… These are wired with removable earpads (two pairs included), along with a case [see picture #4 in their gallery over there] and … I know little and less about these, so be sure to check your favorite audiophoolia websites and forums for more details…

UPDATE: thanks to Allan in the comments for pointing out this Head=Fi thread that discusses these headphones!

Budget Monoprice Two Pairs of Earphones with Free Shipping

Coupon code EAR10 gets you TWO pairs of the MP10 budget earphones for $14 total with free shipping, while coupon code EAR20 gets you TWO pairs of the MP20 budget in-ears for $24 with likewise free shipping.

Monoprice MP5 Earphones for $4.49 w/free S&H

A doorbuster at the Monoprice website. Not only it is on sale, but it gets the all important free US standard shipping, even if you only buy one pair of earphones! It is the new condition Monoprice MP5 earphones going for $4.49 with free US shipping (no minimum order amount), with up to ten pairs per customer at the sale price. The other nice thing of the free shipping on this, if you buy other items that don’t get free shipping, the free shipping promotion may absorb some (or all ~ depending on items) of their S&H fees.

PS: a handful of other Monoprice headphones and audio products are on sale and/or get free standard US shipping.

Monoprice MP10 Earphones for $8 w/free S&H and more

The Monoprice website has a trio of coupons running until Monday but they also have some stand-alone sales with free standard US shipping:

Now shipping: the Monoprice M600 and M650 Open-Back headphones for $130 and $150

It’s the Attack of the Name Clones and they are now in-stock and ready to ship! The Sennheiser HD 600 and HD 650 are two of the most influential open-back headphones in the history of audiophoolia, so of course Monoprice “had to have” two open-back headphones with the 600 and 650 numbers 🙂 I haven’t seen or heard thee new Monoprice headphones, so check reviews and forums and such for more details…

But if you have already researched them, or you are ready to boldly go and give them a try, the new open-back M600 headphones are in-stock for $130, while the open-back M650 headphones are in-stock for $150. They get free standard US shipping which is a plus since Monoprice does not have predictable free shipping like Amazon or Best Buy.

Just like Sennheiser itself undercut the HD 600 and HD 650 with the Massdrop-exclusive HD 6XX, Monoprice is now undercutting the HD 6XX with their M600 and M650 duo.
