The X3 is going for $149 at the show, down about $70 from the usual price of $215.

You can also check out the Jaybird RUN True wireless sport headphones.

And if you pick up a pair of the silver ones pictured above, you'll get a free pair of movie passes thrown in too!



If you want great sound in the big outdoors, look no further than the JBL Xtreme pictured here.

Otherwise, there's always the smaller Flip3. This is also splashproof, and has a built-in noise and echo-canceling microphone so you can use it as a speakerphone. As you can see, it's going for $89.00 instead of the usual of $179.00, making it a savings of about $90!



Klipsch has their limited edition 70th anniversary R6i in-ear headphones available at the show, and these are going for just $150.00 instead of the usual of $179.00. That's a $20 savings and a great price overall for these in-ears that feature Klipsch's signature reference copper-interlaced round cables.

If a neckband-style headphone is more your thing, look at the R5 neckband here. This has hand-stitched leather on the band, and easy to reach controls. It's IPX4 splash proof and uses aptX for better Bluetooth transmission. It's going at a show special of S$169.00, down $30.00 from the usual price of $199.00.

It's becoming a familiar sight by now, but Plantronics' Backbeat Pro 2 remains one of the better value headsets around. It's going for $249.00, down $50 from the usual of $299.00, a great price for these active noise-canceling headphones that boast a 24hour battery life. Check out our review for more information.

Yes, Razer's latest desktop speakers are at the show too. And if you don't need the subwoofer of the Nommo Pro, the regular Nommo speakers can be had for just $119.90 at the Cybermind booth. That's a $40 savings off the usual price of $159.90, and so is well worth a look if you're looking to improve your PC's sound.
