I bought this combo about a year ago, and it was my first purchase in Stax land. The scuffs/dents on the amp were there from the previous owner, but it has no effect on the sound. The foam between the wire mesh and your ears has deteriorated, but again this has no effect on the sound. The pads are wrinkled but they're still holding up.
I'm looking for a flat $500 (price includes shipping + paypal fees). I prefer shipping to USA, but I'd consider Canada as well. I still listen to these headphones from time to time, but they don't get nearly enough head time as they deserve (I mainly end up listening to my Omegas). I claim no responsibility if you become addicted to the Stax sound. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did.
