    I have not heard the Soundwear....but Tyll Hertsens did quite an extensive review including a video of cutting one up into pieces. He seemed quite impressed.

    The new Soundwear price has not trickled down to ebay yet...but I hope and expect they will have some site-wide promo codes to counter Prime Day, and if so that could be a nice price.

    I don't know how they're choosing who gets the discount. I've gotten a couple of discount offers on specific items before, but that was after clicking through links that made the offers.

    Interesting. I've never purchased anything from Massdrop, so I'm wondering if it's targeting returning customers only?

    It could be. I've bought a few things from them over the past couple of years.

    Just an FYI, there is an exclusive price for Prime members only on the Radsone EarStudio ES100 for $79.20 versus the regular price $99 for non-Prime members. Once you log into your Amazon account, you'll see the new price at the link. It'll revert back to $99 once you're logged off though.

    https://www.amazon.com/EarStudio-ES100-24bit-High-Resolution-Bluetooth-Unbalanced/dp/B078H4YD2L

    A couple more products that have exclusive Prime member only sales price are the Cowon Plenue D ($99) and Cowon Plenue J ($149) DAP.

    Plenue D -- https://www.amazon.com/Cowon-Plenue-Resolution-Player-Silver/dp/B01A8NU5GM
    Plenue J (Jupiter Gold) -- https://www.amazon.com/COWON-Plenue-Hi-Res-Player-Jupiter/dp/B077FJPGGP
    Plenue J (Misty Ocean) -- https://www.amazon.com/Portable-PJ-64G-BL-Domestic-genuine-products】/dp/B077BNKF13

    @jude brought one of these to the Ohio CanJam a few years ago, and I had an opportunity to demo it. I was surprised and quite impressed, and the spooky out of head sonic experience is exactly as Tyll describes. The voodoo that Bose pulled off is amazing indeed.

    Ever since then, I’ve longed to own one to use in special case scenarios where I need maximum situational awareness and can’t or don’t want to use earbuds, IEMs, headphones, or even my crap sounding bone conduction headphones. But I’ve been put off by the price since day 1, which I think is ridiculously high for what it is.

    I’ve researched (and tried in person) almost all of the other similar neck speakers (which are more in line with what I’d be willing to pay), and there is no comparison. In my mind, it was the Bose or nothing. But that $300 price...

    Well, this Bose sale changes everything. I’m definitely going to be ordering one. Believe it or not, I was actually looking at used and refurbished ones on eBay just last week (in an effort to score one cheaper). But thanks to the sale, I don’t have to.

    Thanks for posting the deal!

    Ditto!

    My sister is a realtor so her main use-case was for phone calls and secondarily for music. She loves it for both purposes.

    I use the the Soundwear quite a lot for bicycling and work. In the right situations the functionality is great and in quiet environments the presentation is an interesting novelty. For what ultimately amounts to a mediocre bluetooth speaker, at MSRP it's definitely vastly overpriced (as expected from Bose), but, per the Innerfidelity break-down, it does seem like at least did the necessary R&D (I guess also expected from Bose).


    Not prime related AFAIK but HD630VB are selling for $220 from Circuit City (RIP) via Amazon. Thread search shows they've been a bit lower, but some time ago. https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-630VB-Headphone-Variable/dp/B013TLYRC8/

    Also the Sony Walkman A45 is only $128- the A55 is not much more via grey market, but if you don't have any use for A55's bluetooth receiver mode https://www.amazon.com/Sony-NW-A45-Walkman-Hi-Res-Grayish/dp/B0765ZVM6Y

    That’s what I plan on using it for (bicycling and work).
