Kicking the weekend off early:

KZ x HBB PR2 13.2mm Planar Driver in Ear Monitor new $26.99
I just ordered a pair for travel with the phone and Apple 3.5mm to USB adapter. Planar IEMs for $27…wow. I’ve had them before and like the tuning. The 7hz Timeless original is better, but not that much better for the price ratio.
SMSL DO400 Full Balanced DAC Headphone Amplifier ES9039MSPRO $349 used with 1 year warranty.
I bought four of them last month and have another coming tomorrow. 3 watts into 32 ohm it’s a deal at $349. There’s new firmware available and it’s pretty easy to flash (the new SMSL utility will skip over an invalid firmware so you can’t brick it with a wrong version).

Hart Cables started their Midyear sale today. Coupon code Midyeargear24 for 15 percent off.
Hifiman has a sale if you bought their headphones from an authorized dealer, it’s 20%-30% off their headphone amplifiers.

If you ship stuff under 1lb like cables or ear pads, Stamps & Co has 20 percent off their 100 roll Forever Stamps which I get for $29 and free shipping normally.
HB37-KHMT-F6N2 code for 20% off everything and free shipping.

None of the eBay listings are mine, I’m Dunring there also, so no conflict of interest.

Huaham USB-C to USB=C Fiber Optic Cable $36 OBO

I’m using optical USB cables into a powered hub and the noise floor is complete silence. A huge fan of these if you have noisy ports or a powerful desktop PC.
Optical USB cables don’t do well with adapters, I tried and it causes music playback timeout errors. Use a USB hub with an input port that’s USB-C. I use an inexpensive Yottamaster since it has USB-C for power on the other side, and my sine wave UPS has those plugs on the front.

SMSL SH-8s Headphone Amplifier $109
Kingpin for IEMs with it’s 95 score on the ASR 50mv test, only the Topping L30 II scored higher.


Here is some summer sales from HiFiGo

Some of my faves on this list
At some pretty agressive prices.

PULA PA02 - $129.99

LETSHOUES Gizaudio Galileo - $73.99

DUNU Falcon Ultra - $186.99


I’ve never seen P8 this low! Huge if you are interested in a very technical set!


I have always wanted to hear the Oracles… I feel like they almost never go on the 2nd hand market anymore. Pretty sick opportunity for someone!


I would hop on them right now if I had the funds to drop….
But not at the moment. Really good price as well
