Sennheiser just opened an Outlet Store on Amazon

If you are a fan of Sennheiser and Amazon, it’s a new Sennheiser x Amazon partnership 🙂 Sennheiser has opened up an Outlet store on Amazon offering certified refurbished headphones.

As of the time of writing they have five certified refurbished headphones available there with these prices:

  • refurb HD 4.40 BT Over-Ears for $70
  • refurb HD 650 for $307
  • refurb HD 280 PRO (older model) for $82
  • refurb RS 175 RF wireless system for $147
  • ignore the HDR 120 headset, it’s cheaper these days to buy the RS 120 which includes one headset and a transmitter/base

As of the time of writing, these ship directly from the Sennheiser Outlet. I have no idea whether they will also offer “fulfilled by Amazon” options. If I was guessing, I’d say they will eventually do, it may be a matter of time until they get setup and starting shipping inventory to Amazon.

If you go to the Sennheiser website, the Outlet link will actually redirect you to the Blinq online store, so Blinq is in a way “blessed” by Sennheiser.

So it is possible they are expanding to other marketplaces, or want to replace Blinq with Amazon. Only time will tell 🙂

Refurbished AKG K545 Closed Over-Ears for $100 w/FS

Refurb Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless for $80 w/FS

NewEgg FLASH is back with another offer, this one expires Tuesday night 3/20/18, and it is offered by Secondipity, it is the refurbished Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless earphones with various buzzwords (ANC, NFC, custom app, etc) for $80 with free shipping in your choice of black or gold color scheme. Apparently they were able to find enough space to put NFC in it 🙂

PS: I am now filing the “truly wireless” earphones under their own truly wireless category, so you will no longer see them under the in-ears category. Until someone makes hybrid/convertible IEMs that turn into truly wireless the two categories are orthogonal!

Stephen Curry Signature Edition JBL Reflect Mini BT for $30 w/FS

The NBA season is heating up, and fans of the wild magic that is the Golden State Warriors may be interested in the refurbished Stephen Curry Signature Edition of the JBL Reflect Mini BT bluetooth earphones going for $30 with free 2nd Air shipping from the official JBL store.

PS: Amazon warehouses apparently are giving Woot flexibility on quantities, I’m seeing more products with a “limit 10” instead of the customary “limit 3”.

Refurbished AKG K545 Closed Over-Ears for $100 w/free S&H

On the over-ear front, the refurbished closed-back AKG K545 are on sale for $100 with free 2nd-day air shipping at the official Harman store in your choice of four different color schemes, including the modestly space-age looking “Green-Z” color.

Their weekly deals typically run Monday through Sunday night, unless sold out and such.

Refurbished Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless for $70

Further down in price they go, in black or gold color schemes, the manufacturer refurbished Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless (with bluetooth, NFC, and ANC) are down to $70 with free shipping by the Secondipity eBay store (a well-known refurbished seller) with a limit of up to five pairs per customer at the sale price. Over 450 units have been sold per the eBay listing over there. They come with 30-day returns and a 90-day limited warranty.

PS: on the blog front, I have now created a separate top-level category for Truly Wireless, since they don’t really fit into In-Ears or Earbuds. That way those looking for in-ears and earbuds won’t have to see sift through these little critters in those blog categories 🙂 I won’t go back and re-edit old posts, but new ones going forward will be under this top-level category instead of a tag.

Ends Sat PM: refurb Beats X for $46, open-box 16GB iPod Touch 6 for $120, Etc

Blinq is having a Featured Sale that includes some audio-related products running until Saturday at 11:59pm eastern. The coupon is applied automatically in the cart, but in case of technical issues, you can also find the coupon at the aforelinked page.

The coupon is a 25% off discount, and it drops the prices of the following items as follows:

+ open-box iPod Touch 6 (16GB, blue) for $120~
+ three left; this has a Lightning connector

+ open-box iPod Nano (16GB, 7th generation, blue) for $130~

+ factory refurbished Beats X bluetooth earphones for $46~ in black or blue

+ see them all at the Blinq Featured Sale
+ free shipping on all purchases regardless of price
+ 30-day money back guarantee on purchases

Because of the nature of Blinq (they pick up returns and overstocks and sell them to consumers) the risk of something having to be returned is higher than buying something brand new sealed in box, so the free shipping and 30-day returns go a long way towards mitigating the risk. Unless you hate returning things with a passion 🙂
