The NewEGG daily basket continues to have headphones although this one may be a bit of a rotten egg based on the nine customer reviews over there. It is the Philips SHB-2505-BK/00 UpBeat truly wireless for $33…

Thur: Bower & Wilkins PX-7 ANC Over-Ears for $325

Best Buy strikes again with their June 11 (2020) deals of the day as they have the new condition Bowers and Wilkins PX-7 ANC closed-back over-ear headphones on sale for $325 and the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Buds (truly wireless) for $60… And if you need to store or transport your music or feed your DAPs and PADs, they have a Sandisk and WD sale with hard drives, flash drives, microSD and full-size SD cards and more!

Under the “Electronics” daily deal at the Woot website they have the new condition closed-back bluetooth on-ear Sony XB-650-BT going for $45 with a 1-year Sony warranty. It is only available in black. It has NFC. Note that this is part of their “Extra Bass” line, so opera, classical, audiophile jazz, etc you may not like the “transformation” of the music with these 🙂

NewEGG seems to have an unwritten rule of one headphone offer per day at their daily deals and Wednesday’s offer is the new condition Pioneer SE-MJ-553-BT-R closed-back on-ear bluetooths in the red color scheme going for $26 with free US shipping…

Last but not least, for the vinyl junkies or player collectors, one of the B&H Photo daily deals is the new condition Thorens TD 201 manual 2-speed turntable with built-in amp going for $250. It is available in two color options [device color, not sound coloration color!]…

SHOCK! did you notice something today? All these offers and not a single “truly wireless” earphone. There is hope for the audio world after all 🙂

Friday: Sony Audio Sale at Best Buy, Etc

It’s all about Sony during Friday 5/22/20, as the headliner of the Best Buy daily deals are Sony audio products:

+ Sony WH-CH700N ANC + bluetooth closed over-ears for $100
+ as fate would have it, we have a text and pictures unboxing of it from two years ago

+ Sony SP-600N necklace-style bluetooth/ANC earphones for $70

+ Sony SRS-XB-22 portable bluetooth speaker for $70

+ also 7″ Sony Android Auto media thing and Sony Audio system and in-dash digital media receiver and Sony 1155W 2-channel Dolby Atmos 4K A/V hometheater; so much SONY today, too many to list here one by one!

Elsewhere, at Amazon Germany, the Huawei P40 smartphones [no GOOGLE PLAY!!!!] are bundled with the Huaweii truly-wireless earphones and a Huaweii smartwatch in great prices IF you don’t care for Google Play and Google Play Services. That’s a HUGE IF. I don’t think I would want to be chasing hacks to run Google Play apps in 2020. This may have been a fun thing to do in 2010, but these days, I just want things that work 🙂

You can feed your DAPs and PADs (phones as DAPs) at the NewEGG.com daily deals with these two microSD cards:
+ 400GB Sandisk ULTRA for $57
+ 128GB Team for $16
+ also: Philips SHB-5950-WT neckband-style earphones for $17 but reviewers NOT happy with it ~ averages 3 out of 5 based on 21 ratings as of the time of writing

If you are looking for an affordable headphone stand, the B&H daily deals [expire Saturday at 11:59pm ET] include their house-brand AURAY HPDS-B headphone stand for $12. It averages almost 5 out of 5 based on 35 customer reviews… While there, you will also find a couple of options for CAD (the brand name, not the Computer-Aided Design) USB microphones ranging from $50 to $80…

Saturday: Audio Technica ANC & BT Over-Ears, refurb Klipsch S4 In-Ears for $23

Headphones rule the day in the Saturday May 16 in 2020 among the major retailers deals du jour…

We start at Woot where they have an Audio Technica sale with the following three models with a 1-year Audio-Technica warranty regardless of condition:

+ new condition ATH-SR6-BT-BK bluetooth over-ears for $70

+ refurbished ATH-ANC70-RB ANC QuietPoint over-ears for $40
+ they take AAA batteries (single use or rechargeable, a plus if you are a fan of them

+ refurbished ATH-ANC7-BSV-RB ANC Quietpoint over-ears for $50
+ these too take AAA batteries

A blast from the past at the Newegg deals du jour, it’s the refurbished Klipsch S4 in-ears going for $23 with free US shipping, up to three pairs per customer, sold and shipped by NewEgg actual… We have a text-and-pictures unboxing here, one of their variants, the Klipsch S4A II in-ears. I don’t know what their differences are…

Rounding out the action at the Best Buy dailies is the new condition Jabra Elite Active 65t truly-wireless going for $110…

Friday: Klipsch S1 TW for $50, Bower & Wilkins PX7 ANC/BT Over-Ears for $300

IF you are into the highly-contested $300-ish ANC/Bluetooth closed over-ears name-brand segment, good until Friday at 11:59pm central time on MAYDAY MAYDAY 2020 as one of the Woot deals of the day is the new condition closed-back over-ear Bower & Wilkins PX7 headphones going for $300 with free shipping for Prime members ($6 flat otherwise)…

This is available in two color schemes and it comes with a 2-year Bower & Wilkins warranty…

Speaking of daily deals for MayDay 2020, NewEgg is offering the new condition Klipsch S1 truly wireless for $50 with free US shipping… Up to three per customer at the sale price…

PSB M4U 2 Closed Over-Ear ANC headphones for $80 [MD]

IF you want name-brand noise-cancelling headphones that take AAA batteries (instead of having a built-in rechargeable LiIon battery), then you are in luck because for the next five days and change (from blog-posting time here) Massdrop is offering the new condition PSB M4U 2 noise-cancellers (closed-back, over-ear) for $80 with free US shipping. They will ship in late April 2020 from Massdrop…

They have a generous accessories package given the price, an extra set of earpads, two cables, semi-hard case, and a few small things (two AAA batteries, cleaning cloth, carabiner, 1/8 to 1/4 adapter, airline adapter).

NOTE: these are ANC-only, no wireless/bluetooth!

PS: now just because they take AAA batteries, it doesn’t mean you have to use disposable batteries. You can also use rechargeable AAA batteries and depending on your usage patterns you can buy the low self discharge kind (last longer if left unused but not as high mAh) or the regular (higher mAh but deplete faster if left unused)…

Bose QuietComfort 35 II (Rose Gold) ANC/BT Over-Ears for $248

If you like rose-gold color-schemed headphones, you are in luck! Amazon is offering the new condition Rose-Gold limited edition Bose Quiet Comfort QC35 II closed-back over-ears with bluetooth and ANC for $248 with free US shipping and a limit of three pairs per customer at the sale price. This is a limited time offer, but not a lightning deal, so I do not know when the price changes…

With the Corona having many people locked in, ANC and closed-back over-ears may be in order for every household 🙂 Unlike in-ears, having a giant set of over-ear headphones on your head screams “DON’T YOU DARE BOTHER ME!” 🙂

This may indeed be on its way out of the market because it is marked as “Discontinued” at B&H Photo which previously had it on sale before it got discontinued…

NOTE: that this model does NOT use bluetooth 5.0, so if you need BT 5, you have to wait for a newer model. It also uses micro-USB charging; again, if you are living a “USB-C Lifestyle”, you have to wait for a newer model.. OR look at other manufacturers 🙂

PS: keep in mind though, that for Bluetooth 5, and other assorted protocols, both devices have to support it. Otherwise it will resort to the highest common denominator. A Bluetooth 5.0 headphone connecting with a Bluetooth 4.1 smartphone will not connect as Bluetooth 5, but as BT 4.1 or lower ~ depending on what both of them can support…

Monday: Sony WH-1000X M3 for $230

The new condition Sony WH-1000X M3 (third generation as the “3” in the name boldly suggests) is on sale for $230 with free US shipping for Prime members [or $6 flat shipping for non-members] until Monday 3/16/20 at 11:59pm central time at the Woot website as one of their daily deals. Up to ten per customer at the sale price. It comes with a 1-year Sony warranty. It averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 6600+ customer reviews over there…

Meanwhile at Amazon Germany they have an Anker Audio sale that includes a couple of truly-wireless, an exercise bluetooth earphone and a touch-controlled ANC/BT over-ear combo…

Monday (EU): Sennheiser HD 4.50 SE ANC/BT for $95 euro

Good for Monday February 3 in 2020, Amazon Germany is offering the new condition closed-back over-ear Sennheiser HD 4.50 Special Edition, a bluetooth and ANC headphone, for 95 euro with free shipping in Germany + Austria. Shipping is extra elsewhere. Limit up to three pairs per customer at the sale price…

There it averages 4.1 out of 5 based on nearly 10,000 customer reviews but note that all the variants of this model are grouped together in the listing (with or without ANC, SE and not SE, etc)…

Sunday: Bose QC35 II (black) for $299

As we previously mentioned the rose gold color scheme of the Bose QC 35 II ANC + wireless closed-back over-ears goes for $279 but if rose-gold is not your thing, good until Sunday 2/2/20 at 11:59pm central time, Woot is offering the new condition black color scheme for $299 with free US shipping for Prime members or $6 flat shipping for non-members. Note that this gets a 90-day warranty from Woot per the listing, not a 1-year Bose warranty.

Bose QuietComfort QC35 II for $279 [Rose Gold]

If rose-gold is your favorite color scheme, you are in luck! This very color scheme of the new condition Bose QuietComfort QC35 II closed-back over-ear ANC with bluetooth headphones is on sale for $279 with free US shipping at B&H Photo.

Bose used to be dominating in the ANC, but these days the battle has many claiming victory, including Sony’s surprise (?) hit with the 1000X series. All the major players are hitting the $300-ish market segment with all kinds of things. Your favorite search engine will yield countless comparisons and even more always-correct opinions 🙂

Thur: refurbished Audio Technica QuietPoint for $50 to $70

Good until 11:59pm central time on 1/2/20 [Happy New Year], Woot is having a sale on a couple of refurbished Audio Technica headphones with a 1-year Audio Technica warranty as follows:

+ ATH-ANC7BSV-RB for $70

These are QuietPoint active noise cancelling headphones…

Bower & Wilkins PX ANC BT Oval Over/On-Ears for $230

NOTE: Because of the oval shape, I’m not sure I buy into the over-ear claim of these, so be sure to research it…

For a limited time, Amazon actual is having a sale on the new condition Bower & Wilkins PX ANC BT headphones for $230 with up to five pairs per customer at the sale price. Two color schemes are available. They average 3.9 out of 5 based on 460+ customer ratings…

NOTE that these are now a previous generation model. The current B&W ANC Oval-Ear headphones are the PX5 and PX7 models which go for $248 and $348 and are on-ear and over-ear respectively.

Sennheiser HD 4.50 ANC/Bluetooth Over-Ears for $80

It’s a Game of Thrones but also a Game of Exclusives!

You also get free 90-day trials for Pandora and Sirius XM. Free trials for new subscribers only.

On the other hand if you want to optimize for lower price, the official Sennheiser Outlet is selling them for 15% off their $82.49 price (around $70) through Amazon

Speaking of which, a few more Sennheiser headphones have limited time 10% off coupons on them at the Sennheiser on Amazon Outlet store…

Monday: AKG N700NC headphones with Galaxy Flagships starting at $699

The Union of Samsung with Harman Kardon (the parent company of (what was) AKG) is in full force at the Cyber Monday 2019 sales at the Amazon USA website. It’s a combo of Samsung flagship smartphones (choice of Note 10, Galaxy S10+ or S10) with the new condition AKG N700NC headphones (your choice of silver or black headphones). The prices start at $699 for the S10, $799 for the S10+ and $750 for the Note 10 and $950 for the Note 10+. The phones are factory unlocked.

A total of 30 (!!!) options are available…

These headphones are competing in the prestigious $300-ish price tier with Bose QC, Sony WH-1000X, Beats, Sennheiser and more.

Sennheiser PXC 550 ANC/bluetooth over-ears down to $200

Sennheiser goes on the attack in the very competitive prestige-brand ANC/bluetooth over-ear combos and they have brought down the price of their closed-back over-ear PXC 550 to $200 with free shipping by various at Amazon (including Amazon actual) along with B&H Photo and friends…

Note however that there is a second generation model now, which, however, goes for $350, so there’s a big price gap between the two…

PS: we have not turned into an ANC/bluetooth blog! I’m simply posting as many deals as I can find (and have time to post) and a lot of today’s options and deals are on the ANC/bluetooth combos…

Monoprice SonicSolance ANC/BT Over-Ears for $40 w/FS

Monoprice is running their variant of the Black Friday sale and among the items offered is the new condition Sonic Solace ANC/BT Over-Ears, their attempt at this popular and populous market segment of double-figure options. It goes for $40 with free standard US shipping with up to twenty pairs per customer at the sale price.

The price you see is the price you pay, no coupons for this particular offer. Note that these come in bulk packaging so keep that in mind if you are buying it/them as gifts for others…

UPDATE: there’s a total of 30 different headphone-related consumer products on sale at Monoprice, too many to list here individually as it would become a Monoprice blog 🙂

Used Sony WH-CH700N ANC/BT for $50

IF you are looking for a name-brand ANC/bluetooth over-ear headphone, the Sony WH-CH700N is currently on sale for $88 in either color in new condition at Amazon.

But thanks to the previously mentioned 20% off in-cart used AWD promotion, you can get either color in USED condition (“Used – Very Good” or better) starting at $62~ minus 20% off = $50~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals.

So while $88 is not bad, paying $50 is even better 🙂

Tribit X-Free ANC/Bluetooth Over-Ears for $28

These well-reviewed ANC/bluetooth closed-back over-ear headphones will holding the line over $40 but as of the time of writing, the price has breached the $30 line [not that these are stock prices] and you can get the new condition black color scheme for $28 sold by “Tribit Direct” with the order fulfilled by Amazon. The red color scheme (more like some red in the coloring, it’s mostly black) goes for $30~. You can buy as many as you like.

This is not a lightning deal, so the price can change (or not change) at any time for any reason. They average 4.5 out of 5 based on over 1000 customer reviews and they have over 280 answered questions by almost anyone with internet access [and an Amazon account]…

If you have practical need for the bluetooth/ANC combo, these budget brands that are tearing up the top seller charts at Amazon (along with Cowin, Taotronics, MPow, etc) are a good way to avoid spending a lot of money on non-audiophile products but still solve a pesky real-world problem 😉

Friday: B&O Play H8i ANC/Bluetooth On-Ears for $300

It’s headphone breakfast at the Best Buy daily deals, where one of them is the new condition B&O Play H8i wireless/ANC on-ears going for $300 with free shipping and/or free store pickup in the black color scheme.

It seems that these two “fashion” brands, B&O and B&W are frequently “flyers” at the Best Buy daily deals. Higher profit margin, more flexibility for discounts mayhaps? 🙂

eBay headphone sale: refurb Bose QC35 I w/warranty for $199 [and more]

EBay is running its own Labor Day sales and of headphone interest, they have 41 products under the headphones and accessories category including:

+ factory renewed BOSE QC 35 first generation closed-back over-ear ANC & bluetooth for $199 with free shipping from the official Bose eBay store with a 1-year BOSE warranty and original packaging; available in black only; limit up to five per buyer; over 5600 units sold so far;

+ factory renewed BOSE QC30 neckband bluetooth earphones for $140 (likewise as above)

+ Jabra Elite 65e for $40, Active for $100

+ Bluedio Hi truly wireless for $15 [over 6100 units sold]

+ Sony WH-1000X Mark III for $275 from RedTag Camera; almost certain this is an international/import as there is no mention of Sony warranty on the listing; it would have been nice if sellers were honest to mention this prominently on the listing so the consumer can make an informed decision

+ iPod Nano 7s, iPod Touch 4th gen for $30 to $75, Skullcandy Crusher 360s, Bluedios, etc

NOTE: Many years ago I purchased an original new condition iPod Touch 4 and over time upgraded it to the latest allowable iOS version. Fast forward to the latest (and last) iOS upgrade, it became a total slugfest with crashings and such. Half of the music apps could not be installed because it had an old iOS version [thankfully I had some already installed]. And its battery performance was a total disaster. So keep that in mind…

Surprise Massdrop Combo: Sennheiser HD6XX _AND_ Sony WH-1000X M3 for $400 TOTAL

Well this is a surprise and a temptation that may be hard to resist for practical audiophiles. For $400 at the Massdrop website, you get two headphones, the audiophile-loved open-back over-ear Sennheiser HD-6XX, AND the utilitarian Sony WH-1000X M3 closed-back over-ear with bluetooth and ANC.

And better yet, both headphones come with a warranty. The HD-6XX comes with a 2-year manufacturer warranty, and the Sony WH-1000X M3 comes with a 1-year Sony warranty per the listing over there.

This is a pre-order with two days left to purchase (as of the time of writing of this post). The orders will ship mid-September from Massdrop.

PS: if you only want one of the two, you can always gift or sell or trade the other one. Or you can send it to me LOL 🙂

Monday (EU): Sony and Anker Headphone sale

It is Sony day at the Amazon Germany Gold Box or as the cool kids in Germany like to call it, the Ange Bote 😉 Among the Sony products on sale they have the following headphones on sale for Monday August 19 in 2019:

+ ZX-310 closed on-ears for 15 euro
+ I had this headphone in my to-go bag for a while, I swear this must have been tuned in a moderately busy coffee shop because it sounds very serviceable there but when you listen to it in a quiet place, it sounds quite un-audiophile

+ ZX-330BT bluetooth on-ears for 39 euro

+ MDR-XB950N1 ANC/bluetooth closed over-ears for 90 euro two color options

+ WH-H900N ANC/bluetooth closed over-ears for 160 in three color options
+ yes, Sony has a multi-tier approach for their ANC/bluetooth combos

BUT that’s not all. When you further scroll through the daily deals, there’s also a combo Anker and Soundcore sale. Soundcare is an Anker sub-brand because it sounds more audio-ish than Anker? Anyway, their offerings for Monday:

+ Soundcore Life2 closed bluetooth over-ears for 38 euro

+ Soundcore Spirit X exercise bluetooth earphones for 25 euro
+ Anker SoundBuds slim bluetooth earphones for 21 euro

+ Soundcore Liberty truly wireless earphones for 60 euro
+ mono wireless headset for 12 euro

+ and of course the obligatory handful of portable bluetooth speakers

Sony WH-1000X M3 with 20,000 mAh Power Bank for $298

It’s bundle up time, Focus Camera with the orders fulfilled by Amazon has created a bundle centered on the new condition Sony WH-1000X M3 closed over-ear headphone (with ANC and bluetooth) they are including a 20,000 Phone Energy power bank with it. The price listed is $348 BUT there is a $50 clip-on coupon [you have to be logged on to your Amazon account to clip the coupon to your Amazon account ~ obviously], which brings the price down to $298. This offer is available in either color scheme.

Meanwhile in Europe, there is no power bank bundle, but the standard headphone itself is currently on sale for 288 euro at Amazon Germany where it averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 600+ customer reviews and it has over 350 answered questions…

EU: BOSE QuietComfort QC35 II ANC/Bluetooths for 256 euro

The ever-changing economic and monetary system is bringing more changes to where you can find deals and discount. For example, the new condition BOSE QC 35 II ANC/bluetooth headphones currently go for $350 at USA authorized dealers but if you hop on a discounted transatlantic jet, you can get it for 256 euro in your choice of three color schemes by Amazon Germany itself. Limit up to four per shopping cart per customer at the sale price.

I do not know when the sale ends because it is not a lightning deal that has a ticking clock. They average 4.4 out of 5 based on 1250+ customer reviews and they have nearly 600 peer-answered questions (some of the answers are however from manufacturer reps and marketplace sellers (and helpful-score hawks)).

The market is of course very competitive in this segment, with Sony finding a hit with their 1000X, Beats getting boosted by Apple Mothership, and just about every other major name manufacturer trying their hand at this lucrative $300-ish segment.

But that’s not all. The competition is also from below. When people are able to find “good enough” ANC/bluetooth over-ear combos for under $100 from various audiophile-unknown brands at Amazon and other marketplaces, it creates consumer hesitation ~ do you spend $300~ for a “travel headphone” or is a $50 option “good enough”?

As you can see at the Best Selling Headphone charts at amazon.com, the top of the chart is dominated by these Nu-headphone-brands such as COWIN, MPow, TaoTronics, OneOdio, Ailihen, etc.

As of the tine of writing, the highest-ranking name-brand is at #7 with three of them in the top 10 (Beats, Sony, Bose).

nOTE that Amazon’s charts are based on the human-entered and/or computer-generated categories ~ if a product is miscategorized, it will show up in the wrong top selling charts. That’s why you see some on-ears and even some earphones in the “Over-Ear Charts”. Amazon’s marketplace is too big for them to manage 🙂

Thursday: Dolby Dimension Wireless Over-Ears for $399

And as fate would have it, we have a text and pictures unboxing of this headphone right here. I did not finish the review for it, but for $100, this is not a bad deal.

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…

Sony WH-CH700N ANC/BT Over-Ears: $86 Used, $95 Renewed

If you want a bluetooth and ANC over-ears combo but don’t want to pay the big bucks to get the $300+ competitors from Bose and Sony and such, and you are of the Sony persuasion, the more affordable WH-CH700N model is currently available for under $100 in two different not-new-condition options:

+ $95 in Renewed condition (another name for refurbished) sold and shipped by seller “Chubbiestech” but Prime members get upgraded to faster Prime-like free shipping. It comes with a 90-day “Amazon Renewed” warranty (it is part of the Amazon “Renewed” program)

+ $86~ in “Used – Very Good” condition by Amazon Warehouse Deals
