PS: the open-box for $259 is NOT eligible for the coupon. I discovered it while price-checking the new condition that is eligible for the coupon.

TEAC HA-P50 Red Portable Headphone DAC/amp for $153

If you like modestly-red colored portable headphone amplifiers, the red TEAC HA-P50 (with a “-R” appended to its name to signify the red) is currently on sale for $153.20 (such a very specific price) with a limit of five per customer at Amazon.com offered at this price by Amazon actual and a marketplace sellers. So the price looks like it may be a computer-generated price-match of marketplace seller? It averages 4 out of 5 but based on only 7 reviews. It has 3.5mm audio and Toslink, along with USB inputs, and a headphone out. It has a built-in rechargeable battery.

PS: you can find more customer reviews at the other colors.

TEAC CT-H02 Closed Over-Ears for $14

If memory serves me well, these are a rebranded Tascam TH-02, it is the white-pink TEAC CT-H02 closed-back over-ear headphones currently going for $14, in new condition, by a marketplace seller with the order fulfilled by Amazon. Free 2-day shipping for Prime or with a $49+ order. They only have five customer reviews, but the Tascam TH-02 have 500+ customer reviews.

TEAC HA-P50 Portable Headphone Amplifier for $153 (red)

It’s eBay time now, the official Best Buy store on eBay is offering the new condition red color scheme of the TEAC HA-P50 Portable Headphone Amplifier for $153~ with free shipping, with a limit of three per customer.

TEAC UD-301 Balanced DAC/amp for $319

Price-checking is always a good idea, Massdrop (MD) does not always have the lowest prices. Case in point, the TEAC UD-301 Balanced DAC/amp just launched at MD with the lowest possible price under the offer $350 shipped, but it’s handily defeated at the moment by Amazon actual offering it for $319 with free shipping. It is possible that Amazon actual’s price is an automated price-match of the two marketplace sellers offering it for the same price, so I don’t know how long this will last.

TEAC HA-P50 portable headphone amp for $165

The black color option of the TEAC-P50 portable headphone amp, in new condition, is currently on sale for $165 by World Wide Stereo at amazon.com. This ships directly from wWS, so no Prime shipping. Amazon’s own price is $167~ with a “1 to 2 months” shipping estimate. It averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 20 customer reviews.

On the other hand, if you prefer a headphone-amp that is almost as red as Melisandre, the red version is available in “Used – Good” condition (cosmetic imperfections, damaged original packaging) for $146~ by Amazon Warehouse Deals. The new condition of the red is $195.

TEAC UD-301 Balanced DAC/Amp for $350 [MD]

Another day, another item unlocked at members-only Mass Drop, this time it is the TEAC UD-301 Balanced DAC/Amp going for $340 plus $10~ flat shipping. Offer runs for the next seven days. Shipment is estimated to be mid July 2016.

Used Teac UD-301-BK Dual Monaural Digital-to-Analog Converter with USB for $311

The Teac UD-301-BK Dual Monaural Digital-to-Analog Converter with USB goes for $400 in new condition at Amazon, but there are three listings of it in used condition, all by Amazon Warehouse Deals going for $312~ in “Used – Very Good” and $330~ in “Used – Like New”. Since this is not a mainstream product, it’s possible time will push the used prices further down, so even if $311 is not an interesting price for you, you may want to keep an eye for it for further price dropping. It averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 13 customer reviews.

Used Teac HA-P50 portable headphone amp for $152

The Teac HA-P50 portable headphone amp is available for $152 in “Used – Like New” condition (original packaging, may be damaged) by Amazon Warehouse Deals (AWD) actual. There’s only one used listing of this at the moment.

These are theoretically lower risk AWD transactions since: 1) item is in original packaging, 2) fulfilled by Amazon so you get free Prime shipping, 3) fulfilled by Amazon means you deal with Amazon Customer Support, not the seller directly. But there’s always a risk with AWD, so if you are totally risk averse, keep that in mind. I haven’t had any issues with AWD orders so far, but I’ve only done under a dozen, so statistically that’s just a tiny grain of sand in the Sahara 🙂
