Groupon is back with another colorful basic set of self-described “cube-shaped overhead” headphones by Hype (DGL Group). It is Hype DGL Group VSL-928 cube overhead headphones, offered for $6 per pair, in 11 different bright colors. The model names are color-coded, for example, VS-928-ORG is orange, VS-928-GRN is green, VS-928-YEL is yellow, etc. They have an adjustable headband, 4 feet of cord, padded earcushions, and *gasp* a one year warranty.
The Gropuon offer expires by 8/31/13 at 1am ET. Shipping is $3 flat unless your order is $15 or more (then shipping is free). You can buy up to three for you, and an extra two as gifts. Three pairs get you free shipping. Delivery happens within 2.5 weeks of purchase, so don’t buy if you are in a hurry to get them this week. Free returns.
Another day, another new Groupon Goods headphones offer. Now we have the Hype HY-980-BT One-Touch Bluetooth Headphones offered for $25 with free shipping and free returns as well. These have Bluetooth 2.0, in new condition, with a one year warranty from the DGL Group. Let the price set expectations as to performance – in other words don’t expect this to be a cross between Bose and Sennheiser
The Groupon offer expires 8/18/13 by 1am ET. The usual Groupon Goods limits apply, up to three pairs for you and up to two additional to be sent as gifts. Delivery happens within 2.5 weeks, so if you are buying for a time-sensitive occasion, keep that in mind.
At some Staples brick and mortar stores, the Hype on-ear headphones along with the Vibe sport earbuds are on clearance for as low as $8 for the Hype on-ears and $4 for the Vibe sport earbuds. As usual with brick and mortar store clearance, prices and availability will likely vary from store to store and region to region. YMMV.
We continue catching up with the latest Groupon specials. Now we have the Hype Flat-Cable Folding Stereo Headphones with detachable mic for $20 per pair. Free shipping and free returns. Four modest pastel type of color choices are available. They come with a one year warranty from the DGL Group. Despite their price, they have a detachable 4 inch flat cable. The mic is on the cables, so if you remove the cables, you also remove the microphone. Just don’t expect these to sound like Grados
The usual Groupon limits of 3+2, delivery within 2.5 weeks apply. The Groupon listing expires by 8/2/13 at 1am ET.
