+ the Best Buy dailies have a trio of related items as follows:

  • 1-Year prepaid TIDAL HiFi [the higher-res version] for $96, comes out to $8 per month
  • Insignia [their house brand] bluetooth over-ears for $15; as of the time of writing they average 4.5 out of 5 based on nearly 2400 customer ratings, a respectable number considering the price; but always check reviews!!! the numbers are just one of the things to look at, not everything!
  • PDP LVL50 gaming wired headsets and Scosche car audio

Not to be outdone, Woot is having a Random Tech Sale that includes the following trio of head-audio products:

Sunday: Jaybird Tarah for $30, 1-Year Prepaid TIDAL for $65 [not the high-res], Etc

Sunday is here and the Best Buy dailies have two audio-interest products. First up, the new condition Jaybird Tarah bluetooth earphones [necklace style] going for $30 [averages 4/5 on 600+ customer ratings as of the time of writing]…

Then for prepaid music listeners, you can get a 1-year prepaid TIDAL Premium music subscription for $65 for the first year [cannot append to an existing live subscription]. This comes out to a very nice $5.5~ per month. Note that this is the standard resolution service, similar to Spotify, Apple Muzak, etc. Their Hi-Res service costs more and it is not included in this offer…

Elsewhere, at the NewEgg Daily Shockers you can get the new condition bluetooth (with a battery block type thing) Pioneer SE-CL5=BT earphones for $15…

Samsung couldn’t just stand having simple names for their truly-wireless, so they have now “Galaxified” them. One of the Amazon deals of the day is the new condition Galaxy Buds+ Plus truly-wireless going for $140 with free US shipping. These come with a Fast Charge wireless chargepad with a cooling fan. One per customer at the sale price. As of the time of writing, they average 4.7 out of 5 based on 170+ customer ratings…

UPDATE: not daily deals, but I didn’t want to create a separate post for them, Woot is running another Staff Picks sale, running until 7/29/20 [or earlier if sold out ~ and they do sellout] and it includes two headphones:

+ JBL Live 400 bluetooth on-ears for $45
+ Sony MDR-NC7 ANC on-ears for $45
+ SOL REPUBLIC Jax 1-button wired earphones for $13
+ eMedia FD05107 Piano Keyboard Starter Pack For Dummies for $80

PRO TIP: you can use a music keyboard as part of your headphone testing. I have been doing this ever since I got my previous music keyboard. Now that I upgraded from Casio to a higher Yamaha model, even more so 🙂

Friday: 1-Year TIDAL subscription for $80 [and more]

Best Buy strikes again with their Friday 7/3/20 daily deals with a 1-year TIDAL digital music subscription offered for $80. That’s for the first year. Future years will automatically renew at the future full price of the subscription… Also part of today’s daily deals are the closed-back Insignia [house brand name] bluetooth over-ears going for $23…

Meanwhile at Woot Sellout they have the refurbished ChromeCast Ultra 4K going for $50 with a 90-day Woot warranty…

And for those shopping in the EU, Amazon Germany has a couple of bluetooth Sennheiser Momentum in-ears going from 79 to 95 euro. One is necklace-style [all the cable is loose, hangs in front of you like a …necklace], the other is neckband-style [part of the cable is solid].

FREE 3-Month TIDAL Music Subscription [new customers]

For new customers only, Groupon is offering a FREE 3-Month TIDAL Music Subscription. After the three months expire, you will be automatically converted to the $10/month service. This is the standard service, not the higher-resolution “HiFi” service.

Speaking of music apps, free for a limited time is the “pro” version of the “RadioApp PRO” by Tal Shrestha on iTunes. You need an iOS device or Windows running iTunes to get it. If you get it from Windows, you don’t even need to have an actual Apple device to grab it for future use.

FREE 3-Months of TIDAL Hifi Music Streaming [New Customers]

Groupon is offering 3 Month FREE Trials of TIDAL Hifi Music Streaming for FREE. You pick up the voucher for FREE at Groupon and redeem it at TIDAL to start your free 3-month trial. Limit one per person. The offer is good for new subscribers only. If you don’t cancel during the 3-month free trial, you will be charged $20/month for the Hifi plan.

Sprint Customers: SIX FREE Months of TIDAL HIFI music streaming service

If you are a current Sprint subscriber, or if you are planning to start new Sprint service, Sprint launched a brand new promotion, you get SIX FREE Months of TIDAL HIFI music streaming service. That’s the full high resolution service $20 per month subscription, FREE for six months.

New Sprint customers have 90 days (from starting Sprint service) to begin their free six month Tidal trial. Existing Sprint customers can sign up for it using the links at the above page. There are FAQs at the aforelinked page covering most of the questions.


After the six months are over, AND if you don’t cancel beforehand, you will be automatically converted to the $10 per month Premium subscription. If you decide you like the HIFI service, you have to manually upgrade from Premium to HIFI. If you don’t like it and forgot to cancel beforehand, you can cancel at any time in the future. I’m assuming you won’t get a partial refund for the month in progress (but I could be wrong).
