    ebay has 10% ebay bucks by invitation only, so I'm not sure if it's for most people that are signed up to their ebay bucks program or not. You might want to check on your ebay home page...

    Who's eligible?

    Someone shared this over on the Basshead IEM thread- Joker gave them a pretty good grade on TheHeadphoneList way-back-when, might be a good budget IEM pickup. https://www.amazon.com/RBH-Sound-Performance-Isolating-Headphones/dp/B00H7JGKVK

    I picked up my beyedynamic DT1900's from rakuten/buydig last time they had this coupon, and I see rakuten/beach is running a great sale that could be even sweeter with 20% off

    Didn't notice the $60 max before, and was excited for a deal on Monoprice LP amp...
    Being less than 10% off (due to $60 max) - I will wait for next eBay 15% off.

    As an alternative, the KEF Q150 are still only $299 (originally $550), are 8 Ohms and require only 10 watts RMS. I have their older, slightly bigger brother the Q300 and they are amazing speakers.

    Same price from KEF Direct.

    I also like KEF speakers and have the older full range Q300 and Q100 (which get down to 42 and 49 Hz respectively). My Q300's are main speakers with an early 1980's vintage Yamaha stereo receiver. I use the Q100's as surrounds in a 5.1 system.

    However, the Q150 only goes down to 51 Hz. So you will need a sub.

    One will not necessarily need a subwoofer with the Q150. 51 Hz is actually pretty good bass response for any bookshelf speaker. The low point does not define overall bass response and room response. People will need to listen to the speakers' sound in their room, try various placement, and decide for themselves if they actually need or want a subwoofer. Of course, a subwoofer helps, especially with bookshelf speakers, but it's not a necessity for everyone.

    Penon Audio has the TFZ King Updated Version IEMs on sale for $69 down from $109 on AE or $89 on eBay:

    Just don't confuse these with the Exclusive King, King II, King LTD, King Pro, King Koopa, or King Kong.
