Earlier this week I posted a deal for a pair of super bass heavy cans, the Sony Bluetooth Extra Bass Headphones. While that set of over-ear audio blasters appealed to some listeners, others may prefer a more balanced sound profile. If that's the style of headphones you're after, you'd be hard pressed to find a pair more popular than the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x. Today, they just happen to be available for their lowest price ever at $119.99, ten bucks off their previous low.
I could write a paragraph extolling the virtues of M50x's, but I won't. If you want to know why they are so well liked, you can find out for yourself by reading some of the nearly 2,500 reviews on Amazon, which award the headphones an average score of 4.7 stars. Read More
The physical hardware that pumps audio into your ears using Bluetooth comes in many forms. You can have earbuds connected by a cord or bulky over-the-ear headphones that pamper your ears with cushion. Both types are currently on sale at Amazon from MEE. What, no, I don't know how to make headphones. Why do you ask? Read More
I have a bit of a tech addiction, and as such I have a lot of different gadgets floating around my house. Some of the purchases I have made, I will readily admit, were mistakes, and sit around gathering dust unused. There are, however, a few items I've bought that I use so often that when I leave the house without them I feel somewhat exposed. Like that feeling you get when you realize that you forgot your wallet or phone at home.
My Sony Extra Bass Bluetooth Headset falls into that category for me. I listen to them on my way to work, on my breaks, and on my way home, as well as around the house while I work on projects. Read More
For audiophiles and casual listeners alike, Audio Technica's M-series is an institution of sorts. The product line has proven durable, comfortable, and top tier in audio quality all at price points that shouldn't scare off someone willing to put a small investment into their listening experience. If even those prices were still a little steep for you, today there's no excuse. Amazon is offering three models at all-time low prices, according to CamelCamelCamel's price tracking history.
The ATH-50x is available for $129, down from its usual $165. The ATH-40x is at $79 (down from $99) while the most affordable ATH-30x is $49 (typically $70). Read More
If you're looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones that are designed specifically for working out and other active pursuits, you couldn't do much better than the BlueBuds X from JayBird. The company has released a second generation of the headphones, but the originals are still quite good, and they're available with respectable discounts. Right now Amazon has them for as low as $89.99, at least if you buy from the right vendor, Amazon's listing (close to the top) on this page. That's the lowest price for the headphones that we've seen yet.
There's a bit of a catch: that particular vendor, which is selling the white version of the Gen 1 BlueBuds X, is out of stock right now. Read More
The V-MODA Crossfade M-80 is an exceptionally well built set of noise isolating cans with superb sound and distinctive styling. We loved them here at Android Police when we reviewed them after they launched back in 2012 and that adoration has only grown as the price has decreased over the past of couple years.
Today you can grab a pair of these sweet headphones for just $80 at Amazon or BestBuy, about half of what they normally sell for. That matches the best price we have ever seen on the M-80 and is a killer deal. If you need some new headphones (or just really want some) you shouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.
You have your pick of two different color variations, black/red or silver/white. Read More
Are you still using the crappy set of earbuds that came with your phone, the cheap set you bought in a pinch at Target, or the ones you've had for like eight years? If so, it's time for an upgrade. And if you're going to do it, you might as well do it right - it's time to move to a killer set of over-the-ear headphones, like the Legacy from A-Audio.
It just so happens that we have two pairs to give away. Good timing, right? Yep, just for you. <3
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below.
Music fans and guitar players have been raving about Marshall amplifiers for decades, but the British company only recently entered the broader consumer electronics market with a line of stylized headphones and Bluetooth speakers. It looks like they've got higher ambitions: Marshall just announced its first smartphone, the London, set to release in Sweden (at least) in August. The price will be 4995 Krona, a bit under $600, and at the moment there's no word on a wider release. I'd be amazed if a more expansive rollout for Europe wasn't in the cards - Marshall's website already lists Three, TeliaSonera, and Tele2 as carrier partners. Read More
When you're carrying around your entire music collection in your pocket, or streaming it from some server, it can be disheartening to plug in a pair of cheap earbuds. They just don't do the experience justice. Well, if you're not afraid to be that person who rocks over-the-ear headphones everywhere, now is a good time to get something that will make those songs sound they way you wish they did. You can currently get a pair of Audio Technica ATH-OX7AMP SonicFuel headphones for $70 on eBay.
For comparison's sake, these units are selling for $125 on Amazon. They originally cost over twice that much. Read More
V-MODA's Crossfade LP metal headphones are again discounted over on Amazon. While usually priced at $200, today you can get them for just $70. That's nearly a third of the price.
The Crossfade LP headphones are made of metal and likely durable enough to withstand headbanging against a wall. They're noise cancelling, which lets you tune out the nearby sane person asking you to stop. You have five color options to choose from, including white, red, black, and the same colors combined in a couple other ways.
The last time we saw Crossfade drop to this price, they sold out, and that was well over a year ago. Read More
