ASUS Sound Card Xonar U5 External Sound Card for $60 after $10 MIR

The new condition ASUS Sound Card Xonar U5 external sound card (USB connection to computer) goes for $70 but until the end of the calendar month, it is eligible for a $10 ASUS mail-in rebate, making it $60 after the $10 MIR at Amazon by Amazon actual.

Sennheiser HD461i Closed Over-Ears for $25 w/free S&H after $10 MIR

The new condition Sennheiser HD 461i Closed Over-Ear is going for $35 with free shipping at NewEgg actual but it also has a $10 mail-in rebate (gift card) promotion on it as well until 7/31/17. The rebate offer is only good on this particular iPhone model, and no other model.

Beyerdynamic Custom i On-Ears for $40 after $10 MIR

Back to NewEgg again with another promising offer, the new condition closed-back on-ear Beyerdynamic Custom i are on sale for $50 with free shipping, sold by NewEgg actual. Optionally you can submit a $10 mail-in rebate card offer on them, making them $40 after the $10 MIR (prepaid gift card; limit 5; PDF with details over there).

It’s up to you to decide whether the $10 rebate is worth the hassle of a mail-in rebate. $50 is still a good price for them. They look very similar to the Beyerdynamic Custom Street on-ear but I can’t tell what the differences are by looking at the pictures.

The Custom Street, which I got from Amazon as an impulse buy for around $60, I am familiar with, here’s the text and pictures unboxing and here’s an on-going review diary.

The Streets are actually on sale too, when you go to the Amazon product page, they have a 15% clip-op coupon (when Amazon actual is the seller), it drops the price of the white color scheme from $63~ to $54, and the price of the black color scheme drops from $71~ to $61~.

One uncommon feature of the Custom Streets is that you can play music from two different sources at the same time without the need of splitters and switches and such. Each earcup has a 3.5mm input. So if you want to listen to an audiobook or podcast with some background classical or natural or jazz or electronic music, or monitor a video feed (that you occasionally need to unmute) while listening to music/audio, this can work. You have to manually adjust the volume on your music sources. This is where the Bass Slider can also come in handy as well, because each side is independently adjustable 🙂
