Small Things: V-Moda Shields under $5; Shure HAPEC440 Earpads for $7, Cables under $3

Check reviews and answers and interwebs for more details.

Another price drop there, the green color scheme of the new condition V-Moda Crossfade On-Ear Metal Shields is under $5. This too is an Add-On item, with up to three pairs per customer.

Speaking of Add-On items, if you are trying to get to $25+ with small things, here are a couple of discounted cables:

+ 12 foot AmazonBasics Component Video Cable with Audio for $1.97

V-Moda Crossfade M100 Closed Over-Ears for $150

The “Shadow” color scheme of the new condition closed-back over-ear V-Moda Crossfade M100 headphones are on a clearance sale for $150 with free shipping at Best Buy’s website. These are an older, wired-only model.

V-Moda Crossfade On-Ear Metal Shields for $6.48 [limit 3]

Another offer surfaced while updating the latest deals summary, in new condition, the green color scheme (“Hawk Green”) of the V-MODA Crossfade On-Ear Metal Shields is on sale for the very specific price of $6.48 at Amazon by Amazon actual with a limit of up to three sets per customer. Only this color appears to be on sale this low.

Used V-Moda ZN In-Ears for $89

If you are comfortable with used earphones, the V-Moda ZN with the 1-button remote/mic are available in “Used – Very Good” condition for $89~ in one listing, and then they have half a dozen of listings in “Used – Like New” condition for $94~, all listings by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual.

Given that there are multiple listings, time may put some pressure on the prices and cause them to drop. On the other hand, the single $89 listing may be serving as a roadblock to further discounting. It’s hard to guess since Amazon’s price bots work in mysterious ways 🙂

The 3-button used prices start at $111+. All together they have 140+ customer reviews and average 3.9 out of 5.

[DEAD] V-Moda Crossfade II Bluetooth Over-Ears with apt-X for $250

As of a 8:20pm ET re-check this flash sale ended…

If you are a fan of Wall Rose, you may also be a fan of Rose tinted headphones 🙂 The new condition closed-back over-ear V-Moda Crossfade II Wireless (Bluetooth) headphones in the Rose Gold color scheme are on sale for $250 with free shipping at Adorama.com for a limited time.

The “Rose Gold” color supports apt-X, while the other two colors do not, and they are not on sale. Typically, the “Rose Gold” color costs $20 more, which may be a ballpark of what Qualcomm may be charging companies for their apt-X technology.

Used V-Moda Forza Metallo IEMs (wired) for $55 [updated]

UPDATE 9/10/17 additional listings in “Used – Good” condition have been adding going for $55~…

I will do a post Labor Day reckoning of previous posts (I have to find a block of time to do this), and also another Amazon and Warehouse Deals deal fishing expedition, but in the meantime, while price-checking, I run into this, the Apple buttons version, in the Gunmetal Black color scheme of the V-MODA Forza Metallo wired in-ears is available in “Used – Good” condition for $60~ and in “Used – Very Good” condition for $64~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals.

There are two pages of listings for this, so if you don’t need it right away, time may cause the price to drop further down. Only this color/OS combination is this low as the moment.

PS: V-Moda also has a “Wireless” version of these earphones, that’s why I’m distinguishing this by saying “wired”. The wireless costs for more, both new and used.

It is the Rose Gold color scheme of the new V-Moda Crossfade II Wireless (bluetooth) over-ear headphone going for $270 with free shipping at authorized dealer Adorama.com.

The “Rose Gold” color is important in this case, because it is the only one of the three colors that supports apt-X. The other two colors do not.

The “Rose Gold” is the only one of the three colors of this model that supports Qualcomm’s apt-X.

[DEAD] Used V-Moda Crossfade II Bluetooth with apt-X (Rose Gold) for $276

In-Stock Now: V-MODA REMIX Head-Amp and Bluetooth

And it is now in-stock and ready to ship for $300 by V-Moda’s Amazon store, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free 2-day shipping if you are a Prime member.

PS: the “Rose Gold” color scheme is the only one of the three colors that has Apt-X, which is why it costs $20 more. The price difference may be a hint at Qualcomm’s licensing fees for Apt-X and perhaps a reason why Apt-X is not everywhere 🙂

Currently you can get the “Matte Black” color scheme, in new condition, for $210 with free shipping by Musician’s Friend and Amazon by Amazon actual (limit 3).

Another new model is now in-stock at three of the four options, the V-Moda Forza Metallo in-ears are going for $130 with free shipping by V-Moda direct with the order fulfilled by Amazon so it is Prime eligible…

It looks like the coupon no longer works on this particular model (as of 12/12/16 recheck): Speaking of V-Moda, the Crossfade M100 over-ears with a free Boompro mic can be yours for under $150 with coupon at MF.

V-Moda M100 Crossfade with FREE BoomPro Mic for $146 after coupon [updated]

UPDATE 12/9/16: the price of the headphones dropped to $175.55 at Musician’s Friend, so with the 17% off coupon HOLIDAY they drop to $145.71. They are “temporarily out of stock” but you can still order them if you want to lock up the price. MF includes the BoomPro headset-mic for FREE!

Meanwhile Amazon’s own price dropped from $181 to $169 (limit 3). No free headset mic at Amazon.

ORIGINAL POST 12/7/16
The previously mentioned Musician’s Friends coupon HOLIDAY (17% off orders of $99+) yields a pretty good deal on the new condition V-Moda M100 Crossfade closed-back over-ears in the “Matte Black” color scheme. They are already on sale for $190, but the coupon drops them further down to $157.68. They also come with a FREE BoomPro Gaming, VoIP Headset Mic.

There is definitely discounting movement on the wired M100, the “Matte Black” is down to $181~ at Amazon by Amazon actual but no coupon discount and no free BoomPro mic.

PS: this sale/coupon is for the wired model. The wireless is neither couponized nor discounted.

V-Moda M100 with BoomPro Headset Mic for $187 with coupon

The previously mentioned Musician’s Friend coupon BLACKFRIDAY or CYBERMONDAY can get you the new condition V-Moda M100 Shadow with a free BoomPro headset mic for $187~ with free shipping.

The “Matte Black” color scheme goes for $13 less regular price compared to the “Shadow”, but the “Matte Black” is not in-stock (estimated shipping is 12/12/16), so their shopping cart does not allow the coupon discount on it.

Meanwhile the white silver is in-stock and about $5 more than the “Shadow” and it too gets the BoomPro mic.

The M100 is the wired closed-back over-ear, which got discounted after V-Moda released a bluetooth version of it. So you see, bluetooth is sometimes beneficial to audiophiles in a roundabout kind of way 🙂

PS: the BoomPro is not a leftover gift, it goes for $30 on its own and averages 4.4 out of 5 based on 680+ customer reviews.
