I don't think anyone has paid that much for a HP2 before  -$2550.

bidding competition tends to jack the price of everything up.

Seriously thats a pretty ridiculous price and whoever bought them obviously was not going to say no to these.

You don't need to be filthy rich to buy these. Most of us have paid more than $2550 on other things (a nice little vacation for example). The high price reflects the "as new" condition of the phones. The only problem I can see is that these headphones will NOT be used much for fear of red lettering coming off; the metal rods getting marked by the screws etc.....

Those are seriously the best condition that I've seen. Not completely surprised they were able to draw that price.

Yep, it's the price of a very nice couch or a run down hatchback with a bent antenna.

 

Know which I'd prefer!

Starting something off with "not being racist" always means you're about to say something extremely racist.  tongue.gif

Highest I've seen so far.  I guess if people were a little patient, they could very well find a pair in very good condition for much less.  I don't think anyone outside of USA could of bid for those because I've tried bidding and was forbidden to place a bid as my ebay account is Canadian.

 

Ever seen a MINT pair of HP-1s for $800? This pair below went unnoticed for months until some lucky bleep snatched it 4-5 months ago. Sadly, it wasn't me.....BUT I do wonder who though....cool.gif

Here's a pair of Grado SR300 with HP1000 drivers that was sold for $550 two weeks ago to ebay user chichichichia that was trying to sell a pair of SR200 with HP1000 for $1300 on ebay months back. LMAO

US protectionism preventing foreign bids on good ol' USA Grado?

 

Fair enough.
