Conservative is actually an adjective ("conservative judgement") and an adverb ("conservative judging") first and foremost, though it can be noun-ized ("a conservative").

 

The judgement in this case pertains to the newness of the item. Hours of use are simply a measure of that property, and so a conservative judgement of the item's newness would equate to a higher number of hours of use, fitting the definition you posted exactly: a purposefully low estimation [of the item's newness] for the sake of caution.

 

Anyway, this sort of discussion is frowned upon in sales threads and just cluttering things up. : )

I could care less.

You should..

Should I care more about how many hours the headphones have been used? or  how the seller uses his words?

Should I say " I couldn't care less?" or " I could care less?'' wink.gif

This modern stupidity of misusing the English language to state  something is going too far.

If you could care less, go ahead and don't care at all.

If you couldn't care less, then you have arrived, and don't care at all. Which begs the question as to why you bothered posting in this for sale thread.

Great phones among some other great phones you have.

 

All the best with the sale. If I could afford it, you'd have a pm from me, but sadly Head-Fi has already destroyed my wallet as my profile will attest to.

Last price drop.  Will probably just keep it if it doesn't sell at this price.

I don't want them

His use of the term is not only perfectly acceptable but likely a more effective and appropriate use.

 

PS:  If only I hadn't gone on a (wife doesn't know) buying spree in the past 4 weeks (HP-1, HP-2, SR-007 Mk1 and HD-800), I could have been the

I've always been the complete opposite with headphones.  As I only have one head, I've found it best to consolidate my spending into 1-3 extremely good cans ;-)
