HWZ Deal Alert: 24th August 2018

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

Here are some Friday deals to help you usher in the weekend.


urBeats and BeatsX headphones

iPhones are great phones but their lack of a headphone connector can be a bummer sometimes. Fortunately, Beats (which is owned by Apple) has a range of audio solutions. The urBeats3 are headphones that come with Lightning connectors so they can be plugged into any iPhone which doesn't have a headphone jack. The BeatsX, on the other hand, is a neckband-style wireless headphone that is powered by Apple's W1 wireless chip. It offers 8-hours of battery and if it runs flat, it can be quickly charged from zero to 25% in just 5 minutes. Both headphones are available with a discount of 10% right now, which brings the price of the BeatsX down from S$198 to S$178.20 and the price of the urBeats3 down from S$124.20.

This promotion is available at authorized Beats retailers like Challenger, Courts, Best Denki, Nubox, Newstead, and more.


THQ Nordic Publisher Weekend

Steam is running a THQ Nordic Publisher Weekend special right now, so if you have been eyeing games from the publisher, now is the time to strike. Battle Chasers: Nightwar, one of their latest games, is available at 60% off, bringing the price down from S$29 to S$11.60. If you are feeling a little nostalgic, Darksiders is going for just S$4.90.

DarkVoice 336SE OTL headphone amplifier

Thinking of dipping your toes into the world of tube amplifiers? The DarkVoice 336SE headphone amplifier is a good place to start. It is an OTL amplifier, which means it doesn't use transformers in the output phase and also means that it works best with higher impedance headphones - so don't be plugging your IEMs into this baby. Apart from using it as a headphone amplifier, it can also be used as a pre-amp to impart a tube flavor to your powered speakers. It is priced at US$199.99 on Massdrop.
