Microsoft Canada: Beats Mixr Headphones Was $280 | Now $169 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

My, do I have a deal for you. Microsoft Canada has discounted these gorgeous Beats Mixr Headphones from $279.99 down to $169 with free shipping.

Now, the headset itself has 40mm drivers for excellent sound quality. The ear cups are meant to rest on your ears. They are made of leatherette material and rotate 270 degrees. These DJ style professional grade headphones weigh in at about 210 g. These headphones are ultra-light and ultra-flexible so they are ultra-durable. Evidently, this headset came about when David Guetta challenged Beats by Dr. Dre to make the perfect set of excellent ear cups. Read the rest of this entry »

Aukey Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Stereo Sport Headphones Were $50 | Now $22 @ Amazon

Aukey Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Stereo Sport Headphones Were $50 | Now $22 @ Amazon

One of the Amazon Canada deals of the day is a great wireless sports headset at a solid price. The Aukey EP-B13 Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Stereo Sport Headphones are currently on sale from $49.99 down to $21.99. I checked with CamelCamelCamel, which reaffirmed that this is the lowest price this headset has ever been.

I am already thinking of gym equipment, workout equipment, and other equipment that you and I are going to need to get back in shape. I don’t know about you, but the people we rent from dropped off a box of 48 Ferrero Rocher and I have not been able to say no. I have noted that I work out faster and longer when I listen to music, so a headset like this is pretty mandatory if I am to have any hope of lasting longer than five minutes at the gym.

Amazon Canada: Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones Were $280 | Now $99.99 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada currently has some great headsets on sale for Boxing Week. One of today’s main deals is on the beloved Sennheiser HD 558 headphones. They were originally priced of $279.95, but they are now discounted to $99.99. That is a savings of $180 and you will receive free shipping on your order as they are sold by and shipped from Amazon – and the cost over $25.

Amazon sometimes has a habit of inflating their original prices, so I wanted to make sure this was the hottest deal out there. Here’s what I found for you: NCIX has these exact headphones for $189.99 on sale and Dell Canada currently sells them for $229.99. Therefore, Amazon’s price is by far the lowest out there. These Sennheisers are a fantastic deal at this price and you will receive a good quality headset for a fair price. Read the rest of this entry »

Audio Technica ATH M50X Headphones Were $199 | Now $139 & Free Shipping @ Shop.ca (EXPIRED)

The hottest headset that actually warrants the attention these days is the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. This headset has been declared the best headphones you can buy for under $200 by so many lists including DigitalTrends and HeadphonesUnboxed. They also tend to never go on sale as you can easily see by competitor’s prices. Happily, the ATH-M50X Headphones are currently $199 at Shop.ca where you can use our exclusive coupon code MOOSE60OFF175SEPT to save an extra $60. After coupon code, the headset comes down to $139 with free shipping.

I price compared with other online retailers. Best Buy Canada sells the ATH-M50X for $199.99 and is completely sold out online and at any of my local stores. Amazon Canada sells the same headset for $199 (black) and $198.94 (white). Read the rest of this entry »

Beats by Dr. Dre are a hot ticket item for people who like to listen to music with headphones instead of ear buds.

Originally $119.98 for the refurbished style, these headphones are now at a mesmerizing $79.98 with free shipping.

Beats Solo 2 On Ear Headphones Were $220 | Now $148 & Free Shipping @ Microsoft

Headphones are one of my major technological loves and I know a lot of people who would agree with me just based on the brand name headphones they are sporting. Beats are in major demand but they have a pretty high cost associated with them usually. However, Microsoft Canada has just discounted a couple sets of Beats Solo 2 On-Ear Headphones from $219.99 down to just $147.99 with free shipping. Trust me, their price cannot be beat!

I totally spent my headset quota for the month already, but this is a fantastic deal that you should not miss. I price compared these headphones with other online retailers where they cost: Read the rest of this entry »

Groupon Canada: Apple EarPods With Remote & Microphone Were $30 | Now $18 + Shipping

Posted by on July 7, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Groupon Canada: Apple EarPods With Remote & Microphone Were $30 | Now $18 + Shipping

Groupon has an Apple event going on right now where you can get up to 75% off select Apple items. The best deal I found was on the Apple EarPods with remote and microphone that were $29.99 and are now $17.99. The regular price for these are higher I found at other Canadian online retailers.

I actually have these earpods and it was a revelation getting them. I used to put my phone on speaker when I was talking while driving to keep my calls hands-free, but no one could ever hear me. Getting these headphones with microphone made the phone calls crystal clear and kept me safe while driving, or doing anything really.

I also use the headphones with my iPod for running and walking. It says you can also use them on non-Apple devices. You don’t have to worry about using them while working out and sweating as they are resistant to wetness.

These are new headphones, not a refurb with a one year warranty directly from Apple. Shipping is $4.99, which is a bummer, but still makes this deal sweet. Searching for the product number, I found that these are the older set of headphones and stores like Newegg were sold out. The newer version, which looks exactly the same to me sells for $35 at Apple, $39.99 at Best Buy and $35 at Walmart. I can imagine the difference between the older and the newer set would be negligible.

There are a few other Apple items that could pique your interest during this sale from Groupon. There is a refurbished 16GB iPad Air on sale for $399.99. Some of the other items on that page are not Apple products, so don’t be fooled, but I do see some nice deals that are worth taking advantage of. The selfie stick with remote button seems like a sweet deal, with a regular price of $39 and now only $9.99. Over 1,000 have been sold so I think others agree with me!

NCIX.com: Beyerdynamic DT131 Trendline Headphones Were $69 | Now $14 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on July 5, 2015 at 1:30 PM

NCIX.com: Beyerdynamic DT131 Trendline Headphones Were $69 | Now $14 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

NCIX.con has an excellent deal on these Beyerdynamic DT131 Trendline Stereo Headphones. Originally $69, this set of headphones is on sale for just $14 with free shipping, no minimum required.

This is an interesting little headset deal. The headphones have an open design and quite lightweight construction – weighing in at only 130g. They have a natural, transparent sound that works with surround sound. According to the website, these headphones are considered ‘high fidelity’ headphones that are good quality and rugged: they can withstand a few knocks. The headphones come with soft cotton jersey ear pads.

These are a truly affordable pair of headphones – especially at this sale price. For $14 you receive a set of headphones with an impedance of 40 ohms and a frequency response of 20 Hz – 18,000 Hz. The single-sided cable is tangle resistant and spans 2.5 meters long.

I would be remiss if I did not mention warranty and serviceability. All parts on the headphone are replaceable, which makes for easy servicing when you send the headset in under warranty. That warranty lasts an entire two years. I actually think this is an incredible deal as your headset can remain in tip-top shape for two years, complements of the manufacturer, and you are paying so little for the headset in the first place! $14 for two-years of warranty service on top of a brand new headset – fantastic!

I did some research to ensure that you were receiving a good deal. Amazon Canada sells the exact same headset for $60.49. That is both sold by and fulfilled by Amazon, it is not a secondary seller. VIPMP.ca sells the same headset for $64.99. I also found this headset at a bunch of US stores. For example, Head-Fi sells the same headset for $59 USD.

I think this is the perfect deal for Moosers on a budget. You save $55 off the original price and are given a long enough warranty to keep your new headset in great condition. With free shipping and only $14 out of pocket, you would be remiss to not pick up this headset deal. Free shipping lasts as long as the headset is still in stock. Limit of one per customer.

NCIX.com: Roccat Kave XTD Desert Strike Gaming Headset Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping

Posted by on June 25, 2015 at 3:15 PM

NCIX.com: Roccat Kave XTD Desert Strike Gaming Headset Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com often has amazing deals and this is one of them. NCIX.com has reduced the Roccat Kave XTD Stereo Desert Strike – Military Edition Premium Stereo Gaming Headset from $89.99 down to $39.99 with free shipping.

This headset is not carried at many other online retailers. I found it at Amazon Canada for $93.50. You can also purchase it in the Amazon Marketplace for $77.95 plus $13.74 shipping. Next, I found the headset at Newegg Canada for $95.99 plus $12.85 shipping. Even Newegg.com (US) sells the headset for $69.99 USD.  I could not find the headset at Best Buy, Walmart, TigerDirect, or Staples Canada.

Now that we have established that this headset is an excellent price, here are some features.

Microphone

The detachable microphone has noise cancelling features so you are heard and not the lawnmower outside, the drying running in the background, or your dirty laundry revolting in the basket saying “wash me…”! The microphone has a 10Hz to 10KHz frequency response.

Headset

As the microphone is detachable, you can simply use this as a regular headset when you are not gaming. The headset has a semi-open back design with round ear pads (instead of oblong). While not the best frequency response at 20Hz to 20Khz, this will certainly do the job. The 23 Ohm impedance is pretty standard. The headband is padded for wearing comfortable for many hours.

Cable

The cable features a built in remote giving you control over the volume and even mute. With 8.2 feet of cable, you have quite the distance. This is pretty great if you use your headset with a console and want to sit on the couch.

While I could not find reviews for the ‘Desert strike’ version, I did look at a couple reviews for the regular edition. Reviewers seemed to agree that they liked the chunky design, that the headphones were very comfortable, and that there was good overall sound quality. However, they didn’t quite like the cable as it isn’t modular. They often said how the headset was good, but it doesn’t really excel at one thing.

At this price, I think this is most certainly a worthwhile buy. While this is a one-day deal, quantities being sold at this price are limited so you will want to purchase as soon as possible.
