+ what I call “necklace-style” (as opposed to neckband) are bluetooth earphones whose cable is an open loop (that ends at the two earpieces) and you hear them hanging on your neck like a necklace [you can of course also wear them reverse-baseball-cap style, with the “necklace” being on your back instead of your chest]

On a contemporaneous note, Tuesday 5/18/21 is Google I/0 2021 day where there might be some audio related Google announcements. You can watch the livestream/repeat YouTube-embedded below…

Speaking of announcements, this week has developed a bit of a free “HD music” subscription upgrade with both Apple and Amazon offering “HD Music” at the same price as their standard ($10/month) music subscription. It will be interesting to see if Google “price matches” this with a Google I/O announcement. Google Play Music is of course dead, and out of its ashes came YouTube Music/Premium/whatever-they-call-it-these-days.

Wedn: Sony WH-1000XM3 ANC/BT Over-Ears for $200

IF it’s the previous generation Sony WH-1000XM3 the one you want, it is among the 5/12/21 NewEgg daily deals offered in new condition for $200 with free US shipping. This is sold and shipped by marketplace seller RedTagCamera so it is likely an imported/grey-market item.

The year is 2021 and despite all the numerous advances in online shopping, somehow retailers haven’t yet figured out a way to easily and visibly denote items with USA warranty and those without…

Monday: refurb Klipsch T5 truly wireless for $50

The new condition M4 goes for $277 at the moment in Sony-initiated sale at various authorized dealers such as Adorama (with FREE Morphie 20,800 mAh power bank and a microfiber cleaning cloth) or Amazon or B&H Photo

As to why one would get the M3 when the M4 is so close in price, there are always reasons, I’m sure you can find forums and blogs and videos discussing the two…

Shipping is extra unless you are a paying Meh-member.

This is model XTR3M3-T34M for those who have photographic memory 🙂

PS: the “$1.25 per bud” you see over there is an attempt at humor since each earphone consists of two earbuds. No doubt this may confuse some Meh shoppers 🙂

Prices range from $40 to $102. These are not 13 distinct models, as some of them are offered in different color scheme options. Some of the truly-wireless are the more stubby kind, others are the Airpod-style (with the hanging monkey tail).

I have one 1More here for unboxing and testing but it’s not one of those on sale above; it’s a necklace-style bluetooth…

PS: by “necklace-style” I mean those bluetooth earphones that have a cable that is not hardened like the neckbands…

Saturday: AmazFit Powerbuds truly-wireless for $56

A sale of Amazfit smartwatches and fitness bands and such at Amazon also includes truly-wireless earphones from AmznFit. They have three different color schemes of their PowerBuds model going for $55…

Note that both the overall customer rating and the customer reviews are a superset of all the different products that reside on the same root product page. To find the reviews specifically for the earphones you have to go to the detailed review page for each color scheme and filter for its reviews (under the “All Formats” option)…

But that’s not all for the Saturday April 10 (2021) Amazon USA Gold Box. Their headliner deal of the day is the new condition JBL Flip 4 waterproof bluetooth speaker going for $60 with free US shipping. This is available in eight different color schemes, handy if multiple people use them in the same household – you can quickly tell who owns what by the color scheme!

Thursday: Tribit FlyBuds 3 (100 hour) truly-wireless for $29 [limit 5]

One brand that is scoring some points on the budget front is Tribit, and they are one of the Amazon USA Gold Box deals of the day good until Thursday 4/8/21 at 11:59pm pacific time…

Oh, what’s the sale? It’s not tribbles, it’s Tribit bluetooths. A total of 9 options are available including:

+ QuietPlus ANC over-ears for $56

+ two airpod-style truly wireless for $40 to $56

+ and the big star of the show/sale, the Tribit FlyBuds 3 with a charging case that promises 100 hours (!) of playback time. Plus it can be used as a small powerbank (more of interest to smaller DAPs and DACs, today’s smartphones are very hungry for 2600 mAh). The sale price is a very solid $29 with up to five per customers…

As of the time of writing these average 4.5 out of 5 based on 3100+ customer ratings. They are IPX8, bluetooth 5 with low latency, and three sizes of earfins (in addition to the six eartip options). They also promise pairing the moment you open the case, which if working so, simplifies truly-wireless life.

I am planning to buy the FlyBuds 3, so at some point in the future expect an unboxing and review post…

+ Anker Soundcore Liberty True truly-wireless (TW) with promised 100-hour battery life (most of it is of course in the charging case, not the earphones) for $36 after promo code
+ I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets irritated when the truly-wireless run out of juice mid-stream, so there’s that 🙂
+ I’m thinking of getting one of the 100-hour-ish TW (not this one) and will be posting unboxing and review ~ in the nebulous near/distant future 🙂

+ 128GB Team Elite microSDXC for $13, or more savings with optional combined purchase discount
