BTW, what's with the uber-high resale prices on the HE-400 in the F/S forum? I'm posting here, because I don't want to thread crap in a person's thread about their pricing. However, $375 - $380 for a used pair is really nuts. I do realize shipping is included in those prices, but still ... The warranty doesn't transfer to a 2nd owner, so if the 2nd owner has troubles, then they will be out $75.00 - $85.00 to HifiMAN in order to get the headphones replaced. I say just spend the $20.00 extra and get a new pair and have the confidence of a warranty behind you for a year. Or, check out the returned HE-400s from headphone.com where they sell for about $339.00 and you still get the warranty.
i'm not selling my HE-400s. Never. However, if I were to ever sell them, I would say that $350.00 would be a more realistic price, with both types of pads included, as well as shipping costs.
OK, that's the last beef I'll have in 2012. That is, unless something gets under my crawl tomorrow, which is December 31st, 2012.
