Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

Amazingly Affordable Minox MX Miniature Cameras


I've mentioned Minox miniature cameras several times over the years because I can't resist tiny mechanical marvels. The only problem is the price - forking out $1000 or more for a pocket-sized film camera is out of the question unless you're a determined collector.

Believe it or not, it's possible to buy a brand new Minox MX camera and flash for under $100. The sleek MX measures  8.4 x 2.1 x 3.4 cm and weighs a mere 55g. It uses the same Minox 8x11 Pro film as its more expensive brothers. Instead of incorporating a heavy and costly metal body, this lightweight model is manufactured from plastic reinforced with glass-fibre. The lens can focus from one meter to infinity, and a brightline viewfinder allows you to line up your spy shots with military precision. The detachable flash clips to the left side for easy low light shooting.

If you want a real bargain, I recently spotted several MX demo units on the Minox site starting at only € 39 without flash, or € 55 for the set as pictured.
