IC: Yamaha YH-1000 Flagship Orthodynamic
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Im vaguely considering selling my favourite headphone...I must be a bit mad as its irreplaceble. Just in a mood as im not listening to so much music lately.
Yamaha YH-1000, the flagship ortho, and extremely difficult to find (iv spent years hunting these).
This was the best condition pair I ever found, it was basically NOS when I got it, the headband even had that "brand new from packaging" smell.
The earpads even had all the pleather on them since they werent really used, but due to the material used, thepleather was broken down (so i peeled it all off, the cotton pads are in great condition). I have been using it, but its in excellent condition, and you would probably never find one in this shape again.
Comes with original polystyrene box (but no original cardboard sleeve box, a different cardboard box is used here).
Sound wise, for music its the best headphone iv ever heard, and irreplaceble in that sense. With a strong IMPACTful sound, luscious vocals and it just gets your toes tapping like no other can can. Some may find it too dark, but I love it, and so do other YH1k owners. If you love bright headphones, then this is probably not for you.
Iv owned and heard many headphones, and apart from upper treble extention, this is my favourite of all out there. It is an end game heaphone not just in my opinion, but other owners too (those people have also owned Stax O2 and the such, as I have in the past, and preffered this for music). But like every headphone out there, its down to personal taste.
It does sound better under an amp, but also unlike nearly all vintage orthos it stll have enough sensitivty to be driven to volume by anything (ipods, laptops).
Im located in UK, IF I do sell it, id take Paypal in a way I get charged no fees (so you pay the fee, or send it as a paypal personal/gift), or uk bank transfer.
UK postage: £5. I can post internationally depending on location, but postal cost would vary.
