Hey everyone,

 

I'm here to sell "the big three".  These are considered probably three of the most popular hi-fi/mid-fi headphones on the market today.  They consist of the Sennheiser H650 recabled with SilverDragon V3 cable, the AKG K701 (fully burned to 350 hours), and the Beyerdynamic DT990 (250ohm version here).

  • All headphones have never been clipped before, all connected/disconnected from amps with care

  • OPEN TO ALL OFFERS

 

 

Sennheiser HD650 w/ SilverDragon V3 Cable - $SOLD

These HD650's are almost brand new. I bought these in July of 2011 and have used them for somewhere between 250-300 hours.  The drivers have tons of life left in them, thousands and thousands of hours.  I'm including the original cable, as well as the original 1/4 to 1/8th adapter (not pictured!)  These are in mint condition.  The silver cable was built by myself, using all the same components that Moon Audio uses to build theirs.  Its 5ft long to ensure you aren't getting extra noise from lengthy cables for optimum listening clarity.  They really make a huge difference, it was one of the only times I'll say an upgrade was "night and day" and lifted the veil on these. 

 

 

AKG K701 - SOLD

These K701's are very brand new.  I bought these in August of 2011 and they have seen very little use.  I burned them in for 12 days on pink noise and frequency sweeps.  All together they've seen about 350-400 hours, 335 of which were spent on my desk burning in.  So like I said, you're buying a brand new headphone in opened packaging that has been burnt in for you.  These are the most detailed headphones I've ever heard.  If you're looking for a detail and clarity king, these are them.  They have an amazing soundstage as well, wider and bigger in general than any other headphone albeit the AD700 but they are very close.  Like the HD650's, these are also in mint condition.  I take care of my headphones both inside and out, so you can trust they are going to feel like buying new.  These include the 1/4" to 1/8" adapter.

 

Beyerdynamic DT990 (250ohm) - SOLD

These were my first headphones that got me into the high end "mid-fi".  These compete closely with the K701 and HD650, and sound amazing doing it.  They have detailed highs, and full bass with slightly recessed but smooth mids, and its a great sound signature for listening and especially watching movies.  These headphones have a surprisingly large soundstage as well, and everything is quite transparent.  These headphones are in nearly mint condition (NO problems NO scratches NO dents, they're just a year old) and were purchased in August 2010.  They have seen probably 500 hours of use, and have a lot of life left.  They will come with the leather carrying case for travel which has a small scratch on the front face from use.  I'm very apt to holding on to these since they have been my "buddies" for over a year now.  It would take some convincing for me to sell these quickly.  These also comes with a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter.

 

 

Let me know if you need any more information about any of these headphones.  I hope to hear from you soon!

 

PM me for fastest response.

MOTIVATED TO SELL HD650's and K701's

A brand new K701 appears to cost $275US on Amazon.

Will you be willing to decrease the price slightly?

Yeah, for the K701 the price will be $260.  I didn't realize they came down that much recently.

New prices with bump!  Open to all offers.

Another point on the K701.... the Q701 Quincy series is only $249.99 on Amazon right now... pretty hard to drop more than that on a used pair of K701s.   Should be around $200 used.  (I paid less for mine mint).

First off, Q701's are not K701's, and my prices are as is.  I appreciate the input, but I bought these around $300 new a few months ago, they are basically brand new still, and already burned in for the user.  New K701's are $275, and since these are not Q701's you can't compare the price.  $200 would not be an optimal price from my view.  The price is as is.

 

The K701's are currently priced $30 below retail value, for the same thing you get as retail, but you don't have to wait TWELVE DAYS to hear what they really sound like.  I'm willing to work with someone on a deal, but crapping my thread about prices is not cool.

 

If anyone wants to offer a price, PLEASE DO.  I am a negotiable person, more than you may think.  But don't low ball me.

 

 

EDIT:  These are going on eBay soon, I'm tired of people telling me how to run my own sale.

 

EDIT 2:  Another note.  I bought the HD650's from Sweetwater for $500 brand new.  Therefore, they still have almost 2 years of warranty left on them, and I believe Sweetwater will honor two years of their warranty and service on them as well.

I'm going to anti-crap your thread about the prices.  

 

If I hadn't just bought new DT990's a few days ago, I'd be jumping on those as $210 is an excellent price for those phones; I paid quite a lot more than that for my like-new DT990's with box and everything.  Kinda kicking myself over it actually...I'd return them and get these from you instead if I could.

 

Furthermore, the Silverdragon cable is a great choice with those HD650's, and not cheap either; I'd say your price for that is more than fair and I'd buy em myself if I had the dough as the cable really really REALLY helps reduce the veil that one hears with the HD650 factory cable.  

 

Good luck with your sale!

Thank you!  I knew I wasn't crazy,

 

Nevertheless, in an effort to help move the headphones, I am going to REDUCE THE PRICE OF THE HD650's and K701's!

 

ACT NOW!

 

 

EDIT: I just noticed you live in Vail... that's awesome.
