[DEAD] Open-box Philips SHP-9500S for $35 w/free S&H

As of a 12/6/17 at 10:35am ET recheck, these sold out once again…

The open-box Philips SHP-9500S open-back over-ear headphones are back in-stock at NewEgg for $35 with free shipping and handling…

PS: we have a text and pictures unboxing of these. Eventually I’ll post a detailed review of these but I can’t promise a date because I’ll probably miss it 🙂

Philips SHP-9500S Open Over-Ears for $48 w/free S&H

As the NewEGG Black Friday ad promised [see our 2017 summary], the new condition open-back over-ear Philips SHP-9500S headphones are on sale for $48 with free shipping, sold and shipped by NewEgg until Saturday night (or earlier if sold out).

If you are planning to make a $200+ purchase at NewEgg, and don’t object to paying for it with MasterPass (Mastercard’s competitor to the VISA Checkout service), coupon code MPBF17 gets you $25 off an order of $200+ paid with Masterpass. Masterpass is the service. Mastercard are the credit cards. You have to pay using the Masterpass service.

So that would bring the price further down, depending on how you want to virtually allocate the discount on your order total 🙂

we have a text and pictures unboxing of them, and if I can stop time, I will also post a detailed review 🙂

PS: we have a text and pictures unboxing of these. Eventually I’ll post a detailed review of these but I can’t promise a date because I’ll probably miss it 🙂

Philips SHP1900 Closed Over-Ears for $12

On the budget side of the things, the new condition closed-back over-ear Philips SHP1900 headphones go for $11.75 by a couple of marketplace sellers fulfilled by Amazon, mayhaps the sign of a price bot bidding war. They have just five customer reviews with a 4.1 out of 5 average. They have an “open” headband, and cringeworthy (to some) earpads. It’s a Halloween special 🙂

[DEAD] Open-box Philips SHP-9500S for $38 w/free S&H

Philips SHP-9500S for $50 [open-box sold out]

The Philips SHP-9500S and its predecessor the SHP-9500 generated a lot of hype, much of it deserved, however, as it is often the case with hype, it went out of control, and the echo chamber of gurus and recommendation waves made it even worse. Still for the price, it’s a pretty good value, just don’t expect it to be better than every single open-back headphone out there 🙂

As of a 10/8/17 recheck, the in open box condition for $38 is currently sold out and cannot be ordered.

As of the same recheck, the new condition continues to be available for $50 with free shipping.

Both listings are sold and shipped by NewEgg actual, not iffy marketplace sellers.

We have a useful text and pictures unboxing. A review is coming later on, hopefully before the “Winds of Winter” is published 😉

[DEAD] Philips X2HR Fidelio Over Ear drop to $228

Philips Action Fit Sport Sleeve for mp3 players for $1.70 w/free shipping

A doorbuster of sorts! If you have an older mp3 player or DAP, or want an open-ended little pouch for earphones, NewEgg is offering the new condition Philips Action Fit Sport Sleeve for Mobile Phones and MP3 in the Small/Medium size for $1.70 with free shipping. You can buy as many as you like. The sale ends Monday night.

UPDATE: this is also available for the same price in the Large / X-Large size.

This is free shipping for all, no promo code. This ships from NewEgg directly, this is not a “ships from ASIA” product. The one negative review is that someone try to use this with a modern smartphone (which obviously is too big for this). There’s a gallery with seven pictures of it to give you a better feel of what to expect and how it fits.

[DEAD] Sunday: Philips SHB6250/27 Bluetooth On-Ears for $25

Philips SHP9500S Open Over-Ear drop to $50

This has dripped down again, the new condition Philips SHP 9500S open-back over-ears are going for $50 with free shipping until next Thursday night at NewEgg by NewEgg actual.

We have a practical text and pictures unboxing but no review yet 🙂 It is definitely worth the price for an open-back headphone, but does not sound like mermaids riding unicorns like some of the hype may lead you to believe 🙂

Woot Headphone Sale (these last longer)

In addition to their daily deals, Woot also has a variety of other groups of deals that last longer. One such is a headphone sale featuring five different headphones with various expiration dates in the future. They include:

  • new condition Philips M2L for $70 (these are Lightning-connector headphones)
  • new condition JLAB Audio FLEX Studio DJ Style Headphones for $20
  • new condition Philips SHO7205 O’Neill The Construct for $30
  • refurbished Sony MDR-ZX600 On Ears for $30
  • refurbished Plantronics BackBeat Fit IP57 Waterproof Bluetooth Sport neckband earphones for $40

shipping is a $5 flat fee for everything you buy from Woot during a single day. A day is defined as in the Central time zone (that’s where Woot is), midnight to midnight.

Philips SHP9500S return to eBay for $53

If you prefer to shop on eBay, or if you have eBay or PayPal gift cards or store credit or eBay Bucks waiting to get spent, the new condition open-back over-ears Philips SHP9500S headphones are back in-stock, going for $53 with free shipping from the NewEgg eBay store. You can buy as many as you like.

The price has gone as low as $49 as far as I can recall. I have a simple unassuming text and pictures unboxing. I’m planning to use these as a guinea pig for my long form review, but “The Winds of Winter” may arrive before I finish that 🙂

To cut a long story short, these are a great value for their price, but not as good as their out of control hype made them out to be. More specifically, there is room for improvement on the sound quality front.

From what I recall, the open-box went as low as $35 or so, so if you don’t need to get this right away, you can wait for the next sale.

If you are curious about this headphone, we have a text and pictures unboxing post. I am planning to use this headphone as a guinea pig for my “long form review” format. In the future 🙂

In the meantime, METAL571 just posted a 12-minute video review of this headphone, which you can also find YouTube-embedded below.

PS: speaking of NewEgg daily deals, thankfully they ended the silliness that was their convoluted 2-day “daily” deals. They are back to normal again. What were they thinking? Probably a decision by committee? 🙂
