Amazon Fire TV Stick streaming media player w/ voice search for $34 (Reg. $39)

fire-tv-stick

Of the major HDMI stick media players, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is the one that we see the least amount of deals for. Sure there was the insane $20 launch promo and the free offer with Sling TV (still available), but aside from those deals there really hasn’t been any other opportunity to grab one at a discounted price. However, it looks like Amazon wants its diminutive streaming media player in the hands of dads this Father’s Day since it has just dropped down to $34 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples.


Chromecast is usually the go-to choice when it comes to streaming sticks, but Amazon Fire TV offers a couple features that Google’s player doesn’t: Fire TV Stick has a robust 8GB of storage for downloading games/apps, a dedicated physical remote control, and integrated voice search. It’s also really popular with buyers having garnered a 4.2 out of 5 star rating from 42,197 reviewers. Read more

Sony MDR-7506 Professional Folding Headphones $70 shipped (Reg. $100)

Sony MDR-7506
TopElectronicsDeals (99.4% positive feedback from 4,032 buyers) via eBay Daily Deals offers Sony MDR-7506 Professional Folding Headphones for $69.99 with free shipping. These headphones are incredibly popular and rarely drop from their street price of $85. Today’s deal is the best we’ve ever seen.

The MDR-7506 is a staple within the recording, film and live arenas. Due to its low impedance and closed ear design, the headphone does an outstanding job of cutting down background noise while providing plenty of volume in the studio or in the field. Additionally, the closed design helps eliminate “headphone bleed” when overdubbing in the studio.

The MDR-7506 is an around-the-ear design and is ideal for use with MIDI workstations, camcorders or other equipment with less than powerful headphone amplification. The headphone has a foldable design, making it convenient to store or transport, and its coiled cable allows it to stretch and spring back into place whenever you need a bit more reach.

You can find more discounted headphones in this morning’s roundup from Parrot, Skullcandy, JBL and more. Read more
