Hifiman Edition S Open/Closed On-Ears for $129

It’s back to Black Friday pricing for Hifiman’s dynamic on-ears, the “Edition S” whose defining characteristic is their open/closed design. They “open” by removing the earpad cover, and close by adding it back on. There are two colors but they have three listings at Amazon, many of them are by recognizable audio sellers, including Hifiman’s own Amazon store:

+ black Edition S for $129

+ white Edition S for $129
+ and secondary white listing for $129

PS: the “lightning” you see in the product name is part of the color. They are NOT lightning cable headphones.

It’s Black Friday pricing revisited for the new condition open-closed planar-magnetic Monoprice M560 on-ears, going for $150 with free standard US shipping. They are not eligible for the coupon CALM18 which is 20% off orders of $150+. I have tested other Monolith products, and as usual, they are not eligible for the coupon either. The coupon expires Saturday night.

Speaking of Monoprice, they had a Big Bang of Headphone products revealed at CES 2018, including closed-back planar magnetics, a new line of studio headphones (Stage Right), and a variety of DACs and amps, from the tiny to the not-so-tiny. They even have a turntable! They had so much stuff that I had to create a separate post from our New Headphones at CES round-up.
