Beyerdynamic DT880 - 600ohm - Dual Entry Recable *Please read description carefully.*
Will Ship To: CONUS
Hello fellow head-fiers! I have for sale a modified DT880-600 ohm. I received the headphone in a trade some time ago. The original owner had it converted to dual-entry with a balanced hirose termination. I have reterminated it with a standard 1/4" Nuetrik plug.
So why so cheap? I'll tell you! The former owner shared an apartment with a smoker, so when the cans showed up at my door, they were a bit funky. I nuked them with some smoke-killing spray that effectively killed the smoke, but left them with a bit of a fabric softener smell. The scent has all but faded, but the fabric-softener-esque scent can be detected if you take a strong whiff against the metal grills. My nose is pretty sensitive, but these are more or less neutral after hanging on a stand for several months.
Additionally, the dual-entry incision is a bit ugly (not sure why they didn't just use a drill?), but it feels quite solid in the hand.
If I haven't scared you off yet, great! These sound fantastic. I have since moved up to a handful of flagships, but these still don't fail to impress. They are quite clean and comfortable. The cable is roughly 6' and sheathed in a soft nylon sleeve.
I do not have the original pleather carrying case, but I will pack these safely and securely. Additionally, I will throw in a metal stand (actually a Rubbermaid garage mounting thing-a-ma-jig, but works great for Beyers--see sixth picture) at no extra cost.
I am asking for $115 shipped CONUS via FedEx Home Delivery (fully insured, with tracking number provided). I accept payment via Paypal--gift appreciated, but I will accept standard payment as well.
I am not interested in any trades at the moment and I would prefer to keep the sale within the lower 48 for the time being.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thanks for looking,
