Hi-Fi DJ Style (# 8323) for $19.99 [monoprice.com]


BT-300ANC for $29.99 [monoprice.com] OOS

Re: 8323, consensus of large number of reviews say sound is really awesome but phones are tight on 'average' or larger heads. Reviewer 'DanielM' pointed to a site with modding instructions [headphonesty.com]. A few reviews mentioned plastic hinges breaking, which seems to happen a lot with cheaper headphones.

I'm too lazy to do the 8323 mod, so I bought the ANC model. Reviewer 'Ryan B' noted the metal hinges on these. No one mentioned overly tight fit either. ANC will be useful on my next plane trip too.

I haven't received it yet. I just ordered prior to posting it (so I would be sure to get one)Smilie. However, reviewer 'Bobby C' wrote:

"The ANC is very, very good. It processes extremely well, no weird glitches or anything. Remember that ANC only works for constant noise, nothing sudden or even too loud. It will block out medium volume conversations, and sometimes some loud yelling. It will probably work well in loud work environments, but you probably need to turn up the volume a bit."

Could be hype, but I DO agree that ANC works best vs. constant noise

EDIT (11/30/18, ~130pm): I just received it! (Advantage of working ~ 1hr away from Monoprice). ANC IS AMAZING ON THE BT-300ANC! I have some refrigerators humming constantly in my workspace. Flipped the ANC switch and it was like someone turned off the power to all of them simultaneously!...Unit came partially charged so I paired it to my iPhone. Vol up/down buttons can advance music. Disappointed that there's not much bass to it. But on a track like 'Rehab' (Amy Winehouse), I can hear the background organ playing and castanets (?) amidst the other layers....I'm satisfied -- esp. for paying <$30+tax

EDIT 2: Lack of bass may be based on track/quality of, er, 'rip'...Sounds pretty amazing on 'Keep Me' by the Black Keys [youtube.com]. The baseline thump is still not strong, but I can definitely feel the punch. Again, VERY satisfied with the purchase. (and the hinges are metal-lined plastic, but sturdy looking)

EDIT 3: Saw a question of existence of a mic on the BT-300ANC. Just tested it with a voice memo. It works, but I had to speak louder than I thought to hear my voice on the recording. May be due to its location on the bottom of the left earcup next to the multifunction button ("MFB").

EDIT 4: At the request of dereksdontrun, I tested latency by watching a movie on my paired Nvidia Shield (Die Hard -- OF COURSE). I didn't detect any playing it through kodi. However, I thought I detected some subtle sync issue using VLC at the beginning of the movie (airplane scene), but it was fine in later scenes.

EDIT 5 (FWIW due to OOS): Turning on ANC actually amplifies volume/bass. Kinda weird engineering choice. From the manual, ANC use drastically uses up the battery. Also, even though I power down the unit via the MFB, the ANC's green light will remain lit until I turn that off. So I don't know how much power ANC drains if left on while the MFB on the other earcup is switched off. Something to keep in mind...Headset itself is comfortable for me and my medium-sized head.

Shipping isn't free, making them more than from mono price

I want to use the $20 for a digital piano that doesn't have Bluetooth. Do they have an option for corded too?

EDIT: yes they can be used corded but need to buy a cable.

Fwiw, I have the 8323 and a large head. I found them comfortably snug. The sound leakage from them is basically nothing, which is awesome. Great sounding headphones with Bluetooth for an unbeatable price. Almost contemplating picking up the ANC ones as well.

I own the 8323 bt headphones. They are definitely snug even after replacing the ear pads. Be sure to stretch them out a bit. I wonder how comfortable the anc ones are.

Monoprice has gone downhill since was bought out. I tried ordering that and it was supposed to be delivered in 2 business days... Well, it never got delivered. The refused to talked to me several days and when I got a response was some bs. If you buy anything from them, make sure that the delivery company isn't Golden State Overnight.
