WTB: Audio Technica M50 - Any Condition Within Reason

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

 

Hi, looking for an Audio Technica M50 for about $50.    Here's your chance to sell me your smacked-up pair that your little sister go to while you were out at the clubs!

 

I'm (obviously) willing to accept totally flawed cosmetic condition, as long as they are functioning normally sound-wise.  

 

 

Don't Care About:

 

cosmetic flaws

pets

peanut butter

cigarettes

martini stains

bite marks

suspicious powder residues

strange green glow

dubious use by CIA or satanic human sacrifices

funky smell after lending to your hippie roommate

etc.

 

 

DO Care About:

 

normal working condition / sound

 

 

 

I'll pay basic shipping and PayPal fees.  I'm in Oceanside, CA.  My price is based on current Amazon prices of $110 with warranty and shipping.

 

I'm desperately broke, and doing this for a friend who has fallen on pretty hard times.

 

Thanks!

Well, I'm hoping to find one in far less than perfect condition, that someone can't sell for the normal price.  As long as it works, I don't care if it looks like death.  

 

I think most people on this forum want their stuff in pristine condition.  I do too.  But not the M50, it's a gift for a guy who just doesn't care.

 

So, those of you whose niece got peanut butter on it, or you sat on it, or you surfed with it, or your kid used it in face-painting class... just as long as it works correctly, I want it.  $50

New price on Amazon:  $105 w/ free shipping.  Can someone make me a reasonable offer for used based on that?

Good idea!  Well, I"ve sold most of my stuff, but I do have a Creative Zen MP3 player, tiny 4GB one.  But it's in excellent shape, and comes with USB and wall charger.

I do have a pair of Sony V6's for sale at less than $50... =)

What are you asking for them, and age/condition?  Are there any threads comparing them to the M50?  I can't find any.  Your comparison?  I remember the V6 being great, but I don't remember them standing up to the M50 at all, unless I'm mistaken.

Bass is still pretty significant on the V6, but they are brighter sounding and have a more emphasized treble, making them sound more detailed. I'd say female vocals sound better on phones with a warm sound signature, though - so I used my M50's for that instead of the V6's. Comfort wise the V6's win hands down - there's no clamping effect, and I added velour earpads. The V6 doesn't provide as much isolation though.

Huh.  Tough call.  I really had my heart set on the M50.  But how much do you want?  No one has responded to me on the M50 in quite a while.  And truth be told, I can hardly afford $50 plus shipping and PayPal anyway.

If you really have your heart set on the M50, I'd say you should wait and save up for it. The wait will make them that much better!

 

However, my V6 for sale is here:

Thank so much, yes I will wait 'til someone has a cheaper M50.  Someone out there must have a cosmetically flawed one that no one else here will buy, it will only be a matter of time.  Head-Fi guys are picky about condition, REALLY picky, so I'll be a Godsend to the right person.  :D
