Kicking the weekend off early:

KZ x HBB PR2 13.2mm Planar Driver in Ear Monitor new $26.99
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0C3RBJQ1L/
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.

https://www.amazon.com/DO400-Headphone-ES9039MSPRO-XMOS-XU316-Silver/dp/B0CFTHK7MX/
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.
https://stampsandcompany.com.
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.

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!
