Dammit why can't I have this kind of luck?!?

If they have a polarity switch, then those are NOT HP2's. Those are HP1000's

 

both look very similar, except for the Switch on the earcup.

How are you even listening to them with no pads?  If you like them now, wait until you hear them with earpads.  You might want to have a diaper handy.

So these are the ones that are supposed to be used? Perhaps I'll order these then.

 

The 2 hand screws on the side? They look pretty good and aren't loose or anything as far as I can tell!

The switch would be on the side of the cup

Yeah Flats are definitely what you want sound wise. Different pads can change the sound pretty drastically.

 

Yep the ones on the side. It's not too uncommon that those will be loose or come out but it's nothing to worry about if yours are good. More pics would be great and impressions once you get some pads.

You are one lucky man, and if you don't enjoy those, well... I'll pay you TWICE what you bought them for (assuming they work :P)

from now on, everyone in this thread will stop by every garage sale they ever see, in hopes of finding $1000 cans for 25$

That means they are HP2's.  Doesn't really matter, they sound the same whether or not they have switches.  But I'd rather have an HP2 without switches because it's less parts to fail.

The chances seem pretty low of finding HP2's at a garage sale.  I mean the people who own these generally know what they are.  And there were only 1000 made if I'm not mistaken.

It looks in great nick. I wonder what the story behind it is and how it came to be sold for $25! Having parted with items I did not know the value of at the time, I hope that person never finds out what they were sitting on. I'm somehow picturing a little old lady happy at pocketing $25 .
