For Sale:
recabled HD580 and hippohifi "the bloat"

Will Ship To: usa, prefer local meetup in northern va

I bought the cable on here from another user for $125. Here is what he said about it (about 6 feet):

Made with braided vampire cryp, cardas senn connectors, terminated with switchcraft mini plug. Cardas solder was used throughout. Great sounding cable. 

 

It does indeed sound very nice. The hippohifi bloat I paid about $170 for, as part of a group buy. It was the highest quality bloat that they offered, and without the group buy sold for about $250. Keep in mind that, even at the higher price, many considered the bloat a good deal back then (sorry, but I haven't stayed current with headphones).

 

I would never think i would sell this set up, which is about the best budget setup one could ask for. However, the reason I am selling is that I have a new macbook and I'm trying to be more mobile. For me, that means switching to earphones which won't need an amp.

 

 

reviews of the bloat were unanimously glowing. one thing you should know, though, is that the sound is controlled through the sound control in windows

I'm trying to sell everything together because that will be easier for me. 

 

I figure 150 for the phones (7/10 condition) 100 for the cable 150 for the bloat. that is 400 paypal plus fees, and I will cover shipping. As far as sound quality, this is a great beginner setup

 

If you are interested, please email me at ankram@gmail.com

I will allow 12 hours after a "dibs" to see if anyone has a better offer.

Last thing: unless something is glaringly wrong, I don't want to deal with any refunds or returns. Please be aware of how the bloat operates with regards to volume control before you buy. A little googling should go a long way.
