Sorry, TMRaven "like new". Thank you for correcting me on someone elses sales thread. They do look mint upon inspection. I'd rather pay amazon fees than sell them for $190. Though that's an absolute steal for the buyer.
Yeah, I got about 100 PM's from frazzled head-fiers telling me I was crazy for trying to sell mine for $285. Good luck, pal...Still have my mint in box ones sitting at 275. I'll probably just throw them up on Amazon, eat some fees and be done with it.
Most annoying selling experience ever here.
I had the same experience with them on my BH Crack, they lacked energy and sparkle, until I upgraded to a 5998 Tung-Sol tube. I was pretty amazed at the difference a little tube rolling did for it. Sounded less laid back that tight, accurate bass was there and brought out more of the details. That said, I still prefer in on the Darkvoice though...just gives them that speed and energy and the bass is just delicious.
I'm pretty flexible as long as it stays on a Saturday. And if it lends a better time schedule to get vendors involved, that's never a bad thing. Besides that, it gives a better chance at the new HiFiMAN models to get shipped out. I'm hoping to get the HE-400i and I'd love to try out the HD-560 which hopefully should arrive by then.
