I have some extra cash, so I think I'll buy it, I wouldn't want to pass up a deal like this!!!

I don't know what you guys are complaining about, he is throwing in a headphone along with it and not just any headphone, a vintage, collectors item..HD580. Probably still has the original headband pad and earpads too. I may have to sell my car but what the heck.

Because it uses near field output transformerless single ended try old technology.  Its a bit of a niche market.

You know, if he offered it for $50, he'd probably sell tons of them. I would buy one...

Who am I to judge though, I have a rare Neil Young LP up there for $300...

Hey Jay, did I see correctly that you are interested in the Alpha Dogs?

 

I have to warn you, they are the 'anti-Grado' in a lot of ways.  Don't get me wrong, I love 'em.  And they also allow me to fully appreciate the awesomeness of my lowly 225i's.  But I cannot think of any headphone more diametrically opposed to the Grado 'house sound'.  But for me, they are a great companion.

 

Let me know if you want more info!

well, kinda interested , i keep thinking maybe i'd like a planar, i tried the hifiman he 4, liked it, but it was a little hard up top for me. so, then started doing a little reading on the mad dog, which lead to the alpha dog, and in looking at the sale thread, i've wondered about the audeze lcd2, and the truth is i love my two grado's, but i'm always wondering

if they are that "anti grado" maybe if i'm wanting more, i should go further up the grado tree , yikes lol (i can't let the wife know lol)

 

also, i sometimes think i'd like a closed set of head phones, the akg 550's are ok, but they don't really excite me

He is a gem. Harvest is firmly entrenched in the soundtrack of my youth...

It's his self-titled. When the LP was first released they used Haeco-CSG technology in the pressing. Neil heard it and had it re-pressed and the originals recalled. He hated the sound...

I am flogging a copy of the Haeco-CSG version. I think I am being optimistic on the price though.

IMHO with vegan pads the Audeze is more like the PS-500, awesome bass (but it goes deeper in the sub-bass region than the PS-500) with liquid mids and laidback trebles, if you love the PS-500 then you might love the Audeze, you should try them jay smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, I have not heard the Audeze, but I do have two planar cans, listed in my signature.  As much as I love the Grado's, there is something to be said about the absolute power of true bass down to 30 Hz.  The planars deliver.  The Alphas go as deep as anything I've ever heard, but it's not exaggerated or boomy.  It's an awesome experience.

 

But man, they can be pricey, especially regarding amplification.  I use the HE adapter on speaker taps, so power is never, and I mean never, an issue or a problem.

 

For me, I use my planars for high-resolution stuff that I am confident is superbly mastered.  For every day use, the Grado's are my can of choice.
