Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Newegg Canada: Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Now $80 + $10 GC

Newegg Canada is selling the Turtle Beach Ear Force X42 Series Headset for just $79.99 with free shipping. That is 50% off the original retail value of $159.99. You will also receive a free $10 promotional gift card for Newegg.ca with your purchase.

Amazon Canada has this headset on sale for $99.99 with free shipping, which is $20 more and does not include a free gift card. Walmart.ca is selling the headset for $159.83 and The Source is selling the headset for $159.99. Newegg Canada’s price is not only the best, but the freebie makes it a sweet offer.

This headset features Dolby Surround Sound Speakers for a mind-blowing auditory experience. The earpieces are adjustable so you can get a good fit on your ears and enjoy the most incredible sound filtered into your ears from 360 degrees. The headset is wireless, no accidentally tripping on your headset wire or pulling your headset off when you gesture emphatically at the screen. The Turtle Beach headset also has ‘dynamic chat boost,’ making sure you can always hear your team mates while you play games. You can also monitor your own voice with the microphone monitor so you are not screaming at your mates when you get excited. There is no need to break any eardrums.

The headset is designed specifically for the Xbox 360, but would pair well with any console. It does require a digital optical cable hookup to either your Xbox or TV according to reviewers so make sure you have that input available.

Oddly enough, there is only one review for this headset on Newegg and it is negative. I checked over at Amazon because they have a larger pool of reviewers, and the reviews were quite positive over there. On Amazon Canada the Turtle Beach X42 has four 5-star reviews and three 4-star reviews.

Your promotional gift card will be issued four days after you are invoiced for your purchase. Promotional gift cards can only be redeemed online through Newegg.ca and they expire one year after being issued. You do not need to use the entire value all in one purchase, left over credit can be used for another purchase.

I own a Turtle Beach headset and it is very good. The microphone is far superior to many I have tried before and the sound quality is good for the price I paid. For a gaming headset, I have been happy with this brand.

BestBuy Canada: Free Gift with Dyson Fan Purchase (Value $120)

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 11:30 PM

BestBuy Canada: Free Gift with Dyson Fan Purchase (Value $120)

When you buy any Dyson Air Multiplier at Best Buy Canada, you will receive a pair of Sennheiser Open Wireless Headphones valued at $119.99 for free.

We have a Dyson vacuum cleaner, but I have not yet been able to justify the expense of a fan. However, if I needed another set of headphones (which I sadly do not), then I would readily jump at this offer. Pick any Dyson fan and get a free set of Sennheiser Open Wireless headphones automatically added to your cart. Fans range in price from $329.99 up to $499.99.

The headset communicates wirelessly with your device and is supposed to have reception through walls and ceilings. Enjoy up to 100 metres of range with no strings – or cords – attached. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable to wear according to Best Buy Canada, and they come with three AAA batteries. However, I suggest picking up some rechargeable batteries for the headset if you do not already have. You can read more details on the free headset here.

Personally, I would the Dyson 12″ Desk Fan for $349.99. Usually I would advocate going for the cheapest fan as your freebie is then worth a greater percentage of your product; however, the 12″ fan is only $20 more than the 10″ fan. I think the larger size is certainly worth the extra green bill. The iron/blue colour combination is certainly my favourite. It would look fabulous on top my new vintage dark blue steamer trunk that I picked up for a steal. I always have a fan going in my room, and the Dyson would just replace the one currently sitting on the trunk at the end of my bed.

Yet, it might be worth going with one of the more expensive models for some of the additional features. I would love to own the Dyson Hot + Cool Fan as it would serve well both summer and winter. We bought two space heaters this last winter, as space board heaters are incredibly inefficient. We cut our heating bill by at least 1/3rd with the space heaters. The Dyson hot and cold fan would be the perfect year around fan with the ability to generate heat or just throw cool air. However, it costs $499.99. At least the free headset is valued at just over 20% the value of this fan.

Receive free shipping on all orders of $20 or more. Headset is automatically added to your cart.

Dell Canada: Sony Active Sport Headphones Now $29.99

Posted by on July 9, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Dell Canada: Sony Active Sport Headphones Now $29.99

Dell Canada is selling the Sony Active Sport Headphones in black for $29.99, which is half off the original price of $59.99.

I did some price checking at both Sony Canada itself and at other retailers. I found the same headphones for $54.99 at Sony Canada, $34.99 on sale at Best Buy Canada, $39.99 at Canada Computers, and $59.99 at NCIX Canada. Bestbuy.ca was the closest competitor but Dell.ca still had the better price.

The ear loop is adjustable for a perfect fit. Just hoop it around your ear and pull firmly into place. Once adjusted, the earbuds will stay in place with no more fiddling required. The headphones also come with four sizes of hybrid silicone earbuds so you can find the most comfortable fit for your shape and depth of ears. You might also prefer different earbud ends for different activities. While the headphones are water resistant, preventing water and sweat from leaking into the ear canal while working out, they should not be kept in continuous contact with water. These are not designed for swimming or for any sort of water sports.

These headphones feature an in-line remote with volume and track controls play, stop, next, and previous, which is compatible with Apple products. They also come with a built in microphone to make it simple to take calls while out on a run. The headphones come with a few accessories as well: a clip, a cord adjuster, and a mesh-carrying pouch to keep your headset from being tangled or snagged on things in your bag.

These headphones are lightweight, comfortable, water resistant, and designed for an active lifestyle. Whether running, cycling, or hiking; these headphones would make a good companion for your iPod, phone, or other MP3 player. Listen to your favourite music, podcasts, or ebooks as you enjoy yourself in the great outdoors or work out in your local gym. I always listen to music when I work out; it provides motivation when I usually have none. It also makes me work harder if I am listening to a strong beat like rock or metal. However, sweat tends to be an issue with earbuds and my headphones are too heavy. These would be a better option for the next time I take up going to the gym.

Dell Canada offers free shipping on all orders so these will ship for free.

NCIX: Sennheiser Headphones As Low As $35

Posted by on April 19, 2014 at 10:30 AM

NCIX: Sennheiser Headphones As Low As $35

NCIX is having a kick-butt sale on Sennheiser headphones, with up to 60% off a number of styles of headphones.

I know very little about headphones because if I wore them, I couldn’t hear my kids, which some days could be a good things, but on others, who knows what could happen! But, as an audio lover, had I a need for wearing headphones, I’d want really great quality ones. I do wear them to the gym, so this sale is of interest. What I’d really like is some headphones for my kids. I’m tired of listening to the incredibly dull commentary on the YouTube videos they watch of people playing video games. I think I’d rather listen to Don Cherry.

I did check out Sennheiser’s site and found that they are in the pursuit perfect sound and that many artists like P!nk, who I am listening to right now, use their technologies. That says something.

I’ll let you choose the type of headphones you’d like, but check out just a few that are on sale like:

As you can see, these are substantial savings. Shipping depends on which items you choose, because some also offer free express shipping. That gives you an incentive to get one item over another.

Walmart Canada: Monster Ncredible Headphones Only $99

Walmart Canada: Monster Ncredible Headphones Only $99

Walmart Canada has the Monster Ncredible Ntune headphones on for only $99.95. I price compared and all the other stores had them for $120 or more.

I love how things always come back around. When I was a kid, this size of headphones was the norm. Then, technology took over to give us the smallest headphones possible. But, kids these days are kicking it old school with the giant headphones again. I’m sure they do provide superior sound to the teeny ones I use for my iPod.

Reviewers stated these are great headphones for the money, although they truly aren’t sound cancelling (so you’ll still be able to hear your mother calling you for dinner). But, if you wanted true sound-cancelling headphones, you’ll need to pay three times the price.

You can get these in red, black, blue or white and it doesn’t look like there are many options to get these in-stores. Shipping is free, so why not do that?

I am this weird little audiophile that would collect more headsets than there are ears in my household. I have my heart set on a pair of Sennheiser Headphones for one day soon, and I ran across this MM 450-X Travel Bluetooth set on sale from $569.99 down to $399.99. After coupon, they come down to a beautiful $279.99! Still a bit out of my budget, as I rarely spend more than $200 on a headset, but I am seriously drooling over these babies. These cost at least $470 elsewhere!

Shipping is around $4.99, or you can pick your order up in store for free.

Bench Canada: Free Bench Headphones w/ $99 Purchase

Posted by on September 26, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Bench Canada: Free Bench Headphones w/ $99 Purchase

Bench Canada is offering a free set of bench headphones with any purchase of $99 or more.

The offer cannot be combined with other coupons or promotions. Other than that, this deal is pretty strait forward. Just load up your cart with regular priced clothing and checkout. I would usually say sale priced items as well, but there is a special promotion with the sale priced items where you get an extra 30% off the last price. As these two offers cannot be combined and the sale offer happens automatically, you will not receive the headphones with sale products.

My favourite Bench items will always be their hoodies. This YOHSTAR OVERHEAD hoody is just $69 and comes in a range of colours. It is great for fall. The ZIPSTER HOODY in raspberry is a great colour and costs $79.

Shipping is free on orders of $49+.

Amazon Canada: Koss MV1 Professional Studio Stereophone For Only $80 (Save $120)

Posted by on August 26, 2013 at 10:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Koss MV1 Professional Studio Stereophone For Only $80 (Save $120)

Amazon and Koss have another sale and this time you can get big savings on their MVI Professional Studio Stereophone.

The headphones are normally $199.99, but you save $120 bringing the price down to $79.99. No one sells them at the full price of $199.99, but they are still expensive, a lot more than $79.99.

I’m not an audiophile at all. Right now I’m using a set of LG Tone HBS700 bluetooth headphones with one broken ear bud. Basically, I’m listening to everything in one ear and I really don’t care. It doesn’t bother me at all to do that because all I want is words in my brain. It doesn’t matter how they get there, and that’s the other thing. I don’t listen to a lot of music. I mainly listen to audiobooks and podcasts as well as some Netflix. So, I don’t need to hear every nuance of the second zither. Words in my brain. That’s all that matters.

That being said, there are a bunch of reviews on Amazon from people who care way more than I ever will. People like BigPapiT who wrote:

These headphones sound so good, I had to re tune my home theater. The level of detail is amazing. You would not believe the things that go on in the background during live recordings. I use these mainly while playing video games late at night as not to disturb my family. They are a little big and a little heavy but that is more than compensated for with the sound quality. Great product at a great price and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for some nice headphone at a reasonable price. Oh yeah, the build quality far exceeds some more expensive ones that I previously owned. If you are picky and stuck on the more expensive brands, you are passing up a great product.

I’ve never owned Koss headphones, although I have owned a similar pair of Sony headphones and even though I don’t care about the quality, I can definitely tell the difference between high-end audio and junk audio. Having a good set of headphones, especially if you’re listening to a high end stereo system, definitely makes a difference. Even if you aren’t interested in high-end audio, at this price you can pick these up for the same price as a mid range set.

Shipping is free.

Dealfind Canada: BOSE 0E2 Headphones $89 Including Shipping

This deal almost seems too good to be true. Get a new pair of BOSE OE2 headphones for $79 taxes in, plus $10 for shipping, for a total of $89 regularly $149.

Reading this deal’s Q&A, many people think this is an amazing deal and want to make sure these are not refurbished headphones. The deal says new, but I suggest checking the responses to the comments when they come in before you purchase, if you are opposed to used headphones. If they are new, these are an incredible deal as all of the stores I price compared with sell them for the $149 price.

With clear sound and a contoured shape with memory foam, you’ll want to listen to these comfortable and high-performing headphones for hours. When you are done listening, fold them flat for effortless storage in their included carrying case.

Dealfind will mail the headphones out after the deal is closed, and shipping time is expected to be two weeks. You can buy as many of these as you want (unlimited buys).

This, my friends, is a good deal on a very popular headset. The Source has the headset at full price ($279.99) but Future Shop, as to be expected, also has this deal for $80 off. Since they are sister companies, it makes a lot of sense. I am posting about it from Best Buy because I found it there first. However, if Best Buy sells out, you can hop on over to Future Shop and get the sale deal.

You get to choose from a ton, of course, to suit your personal style. Personally, I am loving the green ones… a bit different and they would totally bring out the colour of my eyes!

Enjoy free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

FactoryDirect Canada: 80% Off Refurbished Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones

FactoryDirect Canada: 80% Off Refurbished Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones

The noise of the world got you down? Block it out with a great refurbished set of Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones, and do it for only $40!

Seriously though, does the noise around you drive you insane sometimes? I have a three-year-old and he is, as three-year-olds are want to be, noisy. It’s not that he is obnoxiously loud, but when he is pretending to be Optimus Prime, he’s got to make the associated noise. Most of the time I’m fine with it because, well, who isn’t down with Optimus Prime, right?

But sometimes, right now for instance, I could stand to not have him telling me that Elmo is dirty and needs a bath while I’m trying to write. I can put on my headphones and listen to some music, but Optimus Prime noises still float in.

That’s where a great pair of noise cancelling headphones like the Sony MDR-NC200Ds come in to play. They use active noise cancelling, can be used passively and fold up for portability. They sell for anywhere between $130 and $200 elsewhere, so you’re saving a good chunk of money by picking them up for $39.99. The come with a 90-day warranty and ship for $6.99.

(Thanks to Andrew Love for the picture of SAM being noisy!)

Bose Canada: Save 10% on IE2, MIE2 and MIE2i Headphones + FREE Shipping!

Bose Canada: Save 10% on IE2, MIE2 and MIE2i Headphones + FREE Shipping!

Get the best headphones for your needs and get 10% off with FREE courier shipping from Bose Canada.

When I say you can get the best headphones for your needs, I really mean it. The MIE2 headphones are made for Android hardware, the MIE2i headphones are made for iOS hardware and IE2 headphones are just for straight up music listening.

The MIE2 and MIE2i headphones are normally $139.99 but you save $14 so only pay $125.99. The non-mobile IE2 headphones are $109.99 but you save $11 so only have to pay $98.99. You also get FREE courier shipping on these.

The reason you need different headphones for each is because of the 3.5mm headphone jack pin outs. If you look at headphones with no mic, there are two metal sections separated by a thin plastic ring. On a set of headphones with a microphone, like the ones that come with your cell phone, there are three metal sections divided by plastic rings. Each of those pins corresponds to a wire inside the headphones and everyone has the same wire going to the same metal part. Everyone except Apple, that is. They don’t want us lowly Android users plugging their headphones-from-on-high in to our devices so the pinout is different. A set of headphones for iOS devices won’t work properly in a non iOS device.

Thank you to nikpawlak for the picture of his Bose IE2 headphones entitled Like finding an oasis in the arid dessert that is Apple earbuds. If that isn’t a glowing recommendation, I don’t know what is!

What do you listen to music on? Phone, computer, sound system, standalone MP3 player? Let me know in the comments below!

Bench Canada: Free Bench Headphones w/ $149 Purchase ($79 Value)

Bench Canada has a fantastic deal where if you spend $149 (before tax) on regular priced items you will receive a pair of Bench Headphones valued at $79 for free.

No coupon code is needed. It says limited quantities available.

This only works on regular priced items, not sale items. I did not see the headphones in my cart when I loaded it full of non-sale goods which is somewhat annoying because who knows how long the promotion will last. But this promotion just started today and it is online only. It could be when you sign-in you see them in your cart.

This Windmill Softshell has a great shape to the jacket and would be fantastic for a spring/fall jacket. It comes under sports jackets so it has moisture-wicking properties and is breathable as well. It is priced at $165. You would get a free Bench headset with this purchase.

Free shipping on orders of $65 or more!

Sony Canada: $100 Off MDR-1 Bluetooth Headphones (Pay $300)

Posted by on May 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Sony Canada: $100 Off MDR 1 Bluetooth Headphones (Pay $300)

If you want the best quality headphones without the wires, you want the MDR-1 Bluetooth headphones from Sony Canada!

Writing about a $299.99 item isn’t exceedingly rare for me. Especially a $299.99 item that is discounted $100 from $399.99.  What is a bit more rare is the $299.99 item being a set of headphones. But regardless of the final price tag, 25% off is a great deal.

There are a ton of great features on these headphones (which you can read about at the link above) but for me the killer feature is the Bluetooth. I used to go through headphones like crazy. It didn’t matter if they cost $10 or $50, I would destroy them. It was always the cords that killed them for me. I’d get them caught on something or my son would pull on one or something else would happen that would ultimately lead to the headphones not working anymore.

Ever since I got a set of Bluetooth headphones, I haven’t had to deal with cords and they have lasted well over a year. There were months with corded headphones where I’d go through two or more sets. I also like the freedom of Bluetooth. There is no cord for your kid to rip out when they jump on you. There is no cord go get stuck in the lawnmower poll cord (I’ve done it, it sucks). The need to have your device on your person is even negated. When I get out of the shower and start getting ready for the day I like to listen a podcast or an audio book. With corded, the wires were always getting in the way. My wireless headphone are probably my favourite piece of technology. I absolutely adore them. If you want a high end audio experience with the freedom of Bluetooth, you’ve got to check the Sony MDR-1 headphones out.

Shipping is FREE. The headphones are currently on back order so get it now before the wait becomes longer.

Do you have wireless headphones? Do they make you feel bad for all the people using wires? Or maybe you think us wireless people are dummies. Let us know in the comments below!

Amazon Canada: Up to 55% off Select Koss Headphones

Portable or pro, Koss and Amazon Canada have something for you!

There are three sets of headphones available in this sale.

Wow. This sale is weird. usually you get a good range of cheap to expensive but Amazon has done both ends of the spectrum on this one. Oh well, either way the deals are good. Shipping will be free on the more expensive pair. Shipping on the cheaper ones is going to run around $5 depending on where you live.

Koss has been around for a long time and has always made good sounding headphones for their price. Some people have complained that the build quality isn’t the best so if you’re rough on your gear, these might not be the best choice.

I have owned a set of Koss headphones but it was quite a while ago so I don’t remember much about them other than having them for a long time. The fact that I remember having them for a while is probably a good sign since I’m notoriously rough on my stuff. Anywho, it seems to me that I used them with my Diskman back in the day and I carried that thing around with me forever.

Have you ever owned Koss headphones? Is there a brand of electronics that you used to love but haven’t had in a while? Let us know in the comments below. Why? Because we all love you very, very much.
