Sennheiser HD 599 SE Open Over-Ears for $100 [Prime]

Want to try out the Sennheiser open-back sound but stay under triple figures? If you are a Prime member, Amazon is offering as part of the Prime Days 2022 festivities the new condition wired open-back over-ears Sennheiser HD 599 SE (black) for $100 with free US shipping. One per customer during this promotion.

Speaking of Prime Deals, Amazon has three pages of headphone offers

Sennheiser HD-58X Jubilee for $149, HD-6XX for $199

Setting aside the philosophical question of “when prices go up, what is really a discount then?”, we have two of the much-discussed Sennheiser affordable wired open-back over-ears on sale at Massdrop!

We start with the biggest star of them all, the the HD-6XX headphone going “down” to $199 with free US shipping with a 2-year manufacturer warranty. Per the listing this is made in Romania. Thankfully it’s an “in-stock drop” so it should be in about two business day after your purchase/payment!

Same as above on the logistics and shipping is the “deputy” the HD-58X Jubilee dropping down to $149 with free US shipping and free returns.

You could even buy them both for about the price of a Bose/Beats/Sony ANC/BT hype headphone 🙂

Optionally Massdrop offers an optional 3-year Drop warranty with Accidental Coverage for +$40 and +$30 respectively.

Sennheiser HD 599 SE Black Open Over-Ears for $180

The ivory version of the Sennheiser HD 599 wired open-back over-ear is on general sale for $150 at authorized dealers such as B&H Photo BUT if you prefer the black Special Edition, it is on sale as part of the Prime Days festivities for $180 at Amazon by Amazon, up to three per customer at the sale price…

Friday: Sennheiser RS 195 RF Over-Ears for $300

Best Buy has Friday Sennheiser on their mind! As one of their Friday 6/10/22 daily deals, they are offering the new condition over-ear closed-back RF wireless Sennheiser RS 195 RF headphones for $300 with free US shipping.

These are not bluetooth! They come with a charging/transmitted base, and the HDR 195 headphones/receiver. Cables and power adapters are included along with 2 AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries.

They no longer use Kleer technology in their RF-wireless headsets…

Open-box Sennheiser HD 650 for $249 + S&H

If you are a fan of open-box headphones, Sennheiser’s good old wired open-back over-ear HD 650 is offered in open-box condition for $249 plus shipping (starts around $10) at ADorama’s website. Per the listing this only ships to US addresses…

Needless to say, plenty has been written about the HD 600, 650, 6XX, the 5-series, and the competitors from other manufacturers, so the search-engine is your friend if interested in various trade-offs and comparisons.

Massdrop 10-Year April Anniversale (17 options)
