Empire Ears have had some quality coverage this year on Headfonics with the Odin topping the charts in terms of our reviewer scores at the time of writing. It is a stunning universal monitor and you can read more about it here in our review.
Lots of monitors, be it custom or universal gets the discount treatment from Empire Ears this Black Friday and Cyber Weekend 2020. You get 20% off all in-stock universal IEMs and 15% off any CIEM order.
That includes the likes of the Wraith, and the Valkyrie among others. It does not, however, include Odin and Hero directly. For those look to dealers like MusicTeck on page 1 of this feature.
Simply apply one of these two codes to get your discount at the checkout. BFCM2020U for the universal IEM sales and BFCM2020C for the custom monitor discounts.
EA have been regular Black Friday and Cyber Weekend promoters and for 2020 they have kept things pretty simple with some sitewide discounts including 15% off all Vogue, Premium, and Heritage Series cables. Code 51 and Horus X/Octa will be 10% off for the first 3 buyers to snap them up.
Cables covered under the 15% offer include the excellent Leonidas II and the Octa version, as well as the Cleopatra, all previously reviewed right here on Headfonics.
This is a short and snappy offer that ends on November 29th, 2020 Singapore Time.
Antipodean purveyors of fine ampery, aka Burson Audio of Australia, are partaking in the Black Friday and Cyber Weekend experience this year with a pretty simple but very effective sitewide discount of 20% on everything they have in stock, or until stocks run out.
You can get this 20% via inserting a coupon code at the checkout as follows: 20OFF
And there is more. Some items that are already on sale will also be eligible for that 20% discount using the same coupon code checkout process meaning there could be some gems in the bargain bucket just waiting for you.
You can cancel your order before it ships. Burson will refund the order via PayPal, less 5% transaction fee, (the part that Burson does not get refunded by PayPal).
Noble Audio always does some killer deals for Black Friday, and for 2020 they have 2 bargains for you from November 27th through to November 30th, 2020 CST. Both the Encore and the excellent Katana are available for as low as $925 during the sales period.
On top of that, you get a further 20% of all wired universal monitors, 20% off all custom monitors, and 20% off all cables excluding their Wagnus X Noble range. That will include their recently released Zephyr and the Sultan, 2 excellent universal monitors we reviewed this year.
Meze Audio are also offering a deal for Black Friday for those interested in buying their TOTL Rai Penta universal monitor. For every purchase, you get a free upgrade cable, valued at $149. There does not seem to be any specific time limit for this offer and it is live now on their website.
Also, the Rai Solo has a 40% discount and free shipping for all purchases. The offer is available starting today until Monday, November 30.
64 Audio have a sitewide discount on all universal monitors excluding Nio, A2e, and A3e this coming 2020 Black Friday and Cyber weekend. In fact, they have been running for a few days previous to this article and it will continue to run until next week I presume, (no end date mentioned).
That means a 20% discount on excellent product offerings including tia Trio, tia Fourte, and tia Fourte Noir. The Trio is perhaps my favorite of the 3 mentioned there in terms of tuning preferences.
Just enter BF64 as your coupon code at the checkout to get your yummy discounts.
Our Vietnamese friends are back again with another Black Friday 2020 special and this one is pretty simple to explain though very comprehensive.
From November 27th, 2020 until November 30th, 2020 (GMT+7), all cables sold directly from their website will get a 15% discount. That means discounts on some already excellent value cables such as their flagship Zeus, Athena, and Medusa. Quality cables for all types of budgets.
I am not 100% sure it is automatically applied as last year they have a discount coupon. I am sure it will be clearly explained during the checkout process on the website.
Just the one deal this year for Black Friday from European amplifier specialists Auris Audio, but it’s a very good one. Their fantastic and very unique desktop integrated DAC and tube amplifier, the Euterpe, gets a whopping 30% off.
There is no mention of a hard ending, rather just Cyber Week so we suspect around Dec 1st to the 3rd, 2020 standard European time for the offer to end.
Little Dot has been making a huge push this year with their latest lineup of IEMs, DAC’s and headphone amplifiers. We have covered 3 of their 4 IEMs already in our reviews, the Cu Cen, Wyn, and Rad with the Kis and their desktop tube amplifier, the H1, soon to follow.
For Black Friday 2020, Little Dot has an excellent lineup of discounted models and seems to cover almost all of their core product lineup from IEMs, to DACs and amplifiers.
For those products with more than one entry below this is a variation of the item. For example for MK3+, it is according to if the buyer wants the Bluetooth function or not. For other items, such as LD 1+, it depends on the tube options that the customer may choose.
For the first ten customers who purchase an MK III SE and LD H1, Little Dot will supply upgrade tubes. For MK III SE, they will supply the 1960s Mil. grade ECC 88 (worth about $60-100 depending on where you get them).
For LD H1, Little Dot will supply the 1940s Ken Rad 6SL7 (worth about $100 depending on where you get them). Both of these tube upgrades will strongly enhance the performance of these two amplifiers.

Just to note two product lines in the sales that might cause confusion.
The first, the LD-A2 which is very similar to A1, but it doesn’t have a DAC function. Also, it uses a Japanese transformer instead of the Lundahl transformer they use on A1. It has great potential for those who love to DIY, and even as stock, it has excellent performance.
The second is the LD-Y1 which is their previous flagship 300B tube amplifier. Instead of the 6SH7 tubes, it uses 6SL7 tubes, and it doesn’t come with the Lundahl transformer either.
The sales period is from the 26th of November until the end of Cyber Monday 30th November 2020.
