Multiple Headphones as Described
Will Ship To: Anywhere
This is a multiple item listing so actual prices are listed below.
I accumulated headphones like some people accumulate baseball cards. But I found myself always seeming to return to my favorite few. The rest just sit, unused and unappreciated. The headphones offered here are barely used (10-20 hours) and unappreciated by me. My tastes immediately led me to other headphones, which I am keeping (Stax SR-009, Stax SR-007 Omega 2 Mk1, Audeze LCD3, and Sennheiser HD800). Each of the sadly little used headphones offered here sits forlorned on its own silver Woo HPS-R single headphone stand and is individually covered by its own Stax CPC-1 plastic headphone cover. Please read the legal stuff after the listings.
Some General Points and A Note on Ultrasone Warranty Transferability and Recabling:
The headphones offered here are all less than 1 year old and under warranty. The Distribution/Operations Manager of Ultrasone USA e-mailed me January 17, 2012, to advise that the Ultrasone factory warranties on the ED8 and ED10 are both transferable. I registered the ED8 in March 2011 and the ED10 in April 2011. The Ultrasone warranties are both 7 years from their respective dates of registration. Headphone issues would be handled under Ultrasone's warranty policies. If there are any cabling issues with the ED8 or ED10, these would be handled under Moon Audio's warranty policies. Purchasers of the ED8 and/or ED10 will receive proof of Ultrasone warranty registration. Actual warranty transfer in all cases is the responsibility of the purchaser. See other manufacturers' websites for their policies concerning warranty transferability and requirements. All headphones include the original box (whether cardboard, wood/metal presentation or carry case) and whatever manual(s) came with the units. To limit the photos to a reasonable number, I present a couple of "family portraits", one with and one without covers on. Each of the headphones is then presented front and sides. Last is a photo of the adapters in ziplock bags, as they are actually stored. On the left of that photo are the Black Dragon V2 adapters. In the middle are the Silver Dragon V3 adapters along with a standing plastic headband from the LCD2r1. On the right are some of the stock cables and the upgraded Audeze cables. I don't expect anyone to really see the details of the adapters but the photo is there to show I have them all. If any seriously interested person desires additional photos or has any relevant questions, please PM me. All "obo" ("or best offer") prices are "negotiable", within reason. Lowball "offers" will be ignored.
The asking prices already represent significant discounts and, I believe, are in line with general market prices. I don't need the funds so lowball "offers" will be ignored. Every headphone, cable, and adapter is mint and looks and functions like it just came out of the box. If I don't receive a serious offer on a particular offering, I will list it on eBay and/or Audiogon or just let it remain sleeping on its stand under cover. All serious offers made in good faith will be negotiated in good faith.
Recabling with Universal Adapter System using Silver Dragon V3 and Black Dragon V2 by Drew Baird of Moon Audio:
All headphones remaining for sale (except as otherwise described) have been recabled with the universal adapter system recommended by Jude himself on page 33 of the 2011 Fall Head-Fi Gift Guide using either Silver Dragon V3 or Black Dragon V2 cables by Drew Baird of Moon Audio in accordance with Drew's recommendations (Silver Dragon V3 versus Black Dragon V2). All Silver Dragon and Black Dragon cables are 15' (4.57m) and are terminated with mini 4-pin XLR adapters. Silver Dragon V3 and Black Dragon V2 single ended, Silver Dragon V3 balanced dual Furutech 3-pin XLR and Black Dragon V2 balanced Neutrik 4-pin XLR adapters are offered separately (except single ended adapters and upgraded single ended flat wire Audeze single ended adapter cable are included as described above). Purchase of these adapters from me is not required but if you don't purchase at least one adapter from me, you will need to purchase a compatible adapter from Drew or someone else. My adapters and cables are substantially discounted. All single ended and balanced 3-pin XLR adapters are Furutech. The balanced 4-pin adapters are Neutrik. All headphones and cables are in pristine condition - 10/10 on the Audiogon scale (properly understood - many miss the requirement for being less than one year old).
Stands and Covers Available with Headphone Purchase:
The silver Woo stands are also available at my cost ($59). If you need a stand, you save almost 20% on Woo's shipping charge alone. I'll disassemble it and carefully pack it with the headphone purchased. The Stax covers are also available at my cost ($20), which also saves the ridiculous shipping charges for these zero weight items that could fit in an envelope. For what the Stax covers are, I haven't found a better ready-made professional and handsome looking solution to keeping dust and environmental grime off my headphones. These are almost always both out of stock and I'm not selling them separately from a headphone purchase but one each is available for sale at my cost (above) for each headphone purchased and will be included in the headphone shipping package if purchased (not separately shipped).

SHIPPING & PAYMENT TERMS: I accept PayPal, cashier's or bank certified checks if drawn on US banks and denominated in USD, and US postal or US credit union money orders. I ship only using FedEx or UPS when selling such high value items. Signatures are required; no exceptions. I don't ship until my bank advises me that your draft has cleared or PayPal advises me that your payment has cleared. Buyer pays PayPal fees (3% for US buyers, 4% for US buyers funding with Amex, 5% for international buyers, and 6% for international buyer funding with Amex) plus shipping and insurance. I ship almost anywhere that required international shipping documents aren't like shipping parts for a nuclear breeder reactor. That means there are certain exceptions where I don't ship, including, regretfully, mainland China (but I will ship to Taiwan, ROC and Hong Kong - no problem), and most other places. If outside CONUS, please ask before getting involved in discussions that wind up wasting our mutual time. Please inquire if desirous of using an international P.O. Box. Local pickup is permitted and encouraged to save shipping and insurance costs. Local pickup means the lobby of a bank of our mutual choosing; not my home. Local pickup area is Northern Virginia, USA. International buyers - Having shipped internationally, I'll work with you. Understand that if you're purchasing a pristine thousand dollar (or more) headphone and custom silver or copper cables for "parts-only" value on the assumption you're going to take it apart and reassemble for your local DIY projects, the risk of loss or damage beyond such declared value is entirely yours because insurance cannot be obtained beyond the declared value. Regardless, the buyer is solely responsible for compliance with all local laws, customs and duties.
RETURNS: I will accept returns of undamaged items for 3 days after receipt if the item is not as described. I am a private individual, like most of you. I am not a MOT or otherwise in a position to accept buyers' remorse returns so these are not accepted. Buyer must contact me first to obtain return shipping instructions and approval. No unauthorized returns accepted. Buyer pays shipping and full replacement value insurance as I specify in the return instructions. Please note that undamaged means it remains in the exact same condition as when I sent it; no exceptions. The photos are part of the descriptions as will be any exchanges between us. Quite frankly, there will be, in practice, no returns because no item will be sold misrepresented. If the item arrives damaged, any refund is dependent on a successful insurance claim and buyer has to comply with the shipper's insurance claim requirements. Therefore, if the buyer chooses to not take insurance, any risk of loss or damage is the buyer's alone. No damaged returns, refunds or adjustments if no insurance is purchased. Damaged goods refunds or adjustments are limited to the amount collected from insurance. I pack very carefully and have never had a damage claim or return for any reason.
