Wirecutter's best deals: HIFiMan's HE400i headphones drop to $180
From Engadget - February 1, 2018

HiFiMan HE400i SE Open-Back Headphones

Street Price: $250; Deal Price: $180 w/ code LISTENUP

After our previous pick, the HE400S, were discontinued, the HE400i dropped from their $500 list price down to $250 last year. That makes these headphones an incredible value, and we recently saw them fall to $220. Now we are seeing an even better deal on the Special Edition Dark Blue Chrome color with a new low price of $180 when you use code LISTENUP. Grab these while they are available as this deal is not likely to last.

The HiFiMan HE400i is our top pick in our guide to the best open-back headphones under $500. Brent Butterworth wrote, "When we first tested headphones for this article, HiFiMan's HE400S and HE400i roughly tied, with half of our panelists preferring one and half preferring the other. The HE400S became our top pick because it was $200 less costly, but now the HE400S is discontinued and the HE400i sells for even less than the HE400S's original price. This makes the HE400i one of today's best bargains in audio, and probably the least expensive way to experience the kind of detailed, spacious, lifelike sound audiophiles crave."

Anker Karapax Touch for iPhone X

Street Price: $12; Deal Price: $9

The Anker Karapax Touch case in white for the iPhone X is down to a new low price of $9. This is the first price drop we have seen for this color of this phone case, which typically has a street price of $12. The Anker Karapax Touch is also available in black for $7 from its usual street price of $9, a dollar higher than the lowest we have seen but still a good price for those seeking that color. We are not sure how long this deal will last, so if you have been looking for a solid all purpose case for your iPhone X, consider buying now.

The Anker Karapax Touch is the previous top pick all purpose case in our guide to the best iPhone X cases. Nick Guy wrote, "Anker's Karapax Touch is one of the best basic cases we tested, and was our previous top pick. The single piece of TPU-like material fit the phone perfectly, provided a substantial amount of protection relative to its minimal thickness and weight, and did not affect how the buttons felt. It's essentially a clone of the Incipio NGP, a case we have long liked and recommended, but with slightly better grip and less obtrusive branding for a lower price. The back of the case is a bit slicker than the Silk Base Grip, though; we think a little more grip is better for most people."
