*SALE PENDING* Ultrasone Edition 10
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Up for sale is a pair of Ultrasone Edition 10s.
Reason for Sale
I have had these a few weeks and think very highly of them, but at this point, I am feeling these are not exactly what I was looking for. (I have posted impressions in the main thread.) New and used ones seem plentiful in Japan fortunately, so it will be no trouble for me to grab a pair later on if I decide that I do indeed miss them.
I purchased them ‘used’ here in Japan; however, my understanding is that they were opened at the store but were never sold to anyone. To the very best of my ability, I can find no minor or major nicks or scratches on the metal, wood, and plastic parts at all. However, the leather does appear to show some slight signs of use. Close inspection reveals some subtle color variations-- I can find slightly darker areas in a several places on the ear pads and headband. I have done my best to capture this in the photos below but getting the lighting right was not easy. In normal light, the leather on my pair seems darker than what I see in the Ultrasone photos and the areas in question are just slightly darker. Outside of the leather, everything else, case and stand included look ‘as new.’ They are stunning headphones for sure.
Outside of a brief period wearing them to get a feel for the leather pads, I have only worn them with a light protective cloth wrapped around the leather parts and handled them like they were a Faberge egg. I probably put 72 hours or so of light burn in and maybe 20-30 hours of head time.
