Up for sale is the Hifiman HE-500. The reason for this sale is that I want to buy an HD800 and it isn't sensible for me to buy them without selling some stuff so the HE500 has to go unfortunately. The sale of the HE500 has nothing to do with the sound of the HE500 as they are the best headphones I have ever owned.
I am the second owner and this is the older version before they made the cable change and all of that. I have two different pads for them. One is the leather ones that you get from Hifiman and the other is a Beyerdynamic leather pads that I bought from J&R. I have a couple of cables for them as well. One is the stock HE-4 cable terminated into a 4 pin XLR and the XLR to SE adapter. I have another the same way but the sleeving is different and not as flexible. Lastly I have a cable that goes just to SE. Also I have the black box to put the HE500 but it has seen better days. There are two noticeable dings on it. All the cables work fine and so does the headphone. What you see in the pics is what you will be getting.
The price is $OLD plus shipping and insurance. I would estimate around $25 on top.
The price is only ConUS and I will ship via USPS, provide a tracking and insure it. Local pickup in NYC may be available depending on time, location and your feedback and that requires a paypal gift payment of $550 prior to meeting up. I may be willing to ship to Canada if the member has good feedback but would prefer ConUS.
I may not be able to ship it easily until Saturday depending on how busy it is at work but if all else fails I will drop it off at the kiosk near my house. However it should not be an issue to ship it during work so probably shipped within 48 hours.
Check signature for old and new feedback.
PM if interested.
