For Sale:
Sony R10 - mint boxed no808. used only a few times

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I am listing one of my sets of Sony R10 headphones - No 808. Bought from an older gentleman close to hong kong earlier this year.

 

They are in the original unmarked box, with the manual, key, cleaning cloth etc. I used the spare pads in my other set of older, heavily used R10's and have decided to hold onto them as I had them recabled to balanced.

 

This set have hardly been used and I have only listened to them a couple of times since I got them. My plan was to keep them in storage however I have recently moved house and a recent death in the family has made me re-evaluate the purpose of collecting an array of headphones I will more than likely never use.

 

I tend to use STAX 009 and my other (more used and abused) Sony R10's exclusively and have recently moved some money into a speaker based setup. I have boxes of headphones that never get used and it seems such a waste.

 

This R10 is what I would class as NOS and they have never been taken apart. I haven't opened them either but they are immaculate as can be seen by the images attached to this auction.

 

I think it is better that they find a good home with someone who will treasure, appreciate them and most importantly use them.

 

Please be aware I have no need financially to sell these, so no stupid offers, or trades. I am not interested. If you do not have good feedback on Headfi, then I will need to do some background checks to confirm. If they don't sell ill just hold onto them.

 

I paid the price im asking so im not trying to make any money on this set, just 'pass' them onto a good home.

 

Buyer can pay by bank transfer or paypal. If paying by paypal then fees will need to be covered, which is why it might make more sense to use bank transfer. I will ship ONLY tracked via DHL or equivalent (at buyers expense), this will be insured also in case of loss during transit.

 

Dont ask me to value these at $50 when shipping its much too risky for everyone involved.

 

If you want to discuss this then drop me a private message. I am based in the United Kingdom.

Sadly, if the idiotic messages don't stop I will have to end this auction. I have had two people offer me under $4,000 with one person saying 'are not perfect so I offer you xxx!'.

 

I also dont want a trade of a car! or a motorbike, or a date with your mother (well unless she is under 30 and in fine trim with good cooking skills).

 

Quick message to anyone else who wants to waste my time. you will be immediately blocked/ignored.

Bass heavy or bass light?

Im pretty sure they are bass light. I say this based on my other pair which were owned previously by a few headfi'ers who classed them as bass light.

 

They both sound really good to me in regards to bass, but I am not a bass head.

I love to see how clever people are... if the date with his mother turns out to be successful, then the guy don't even need to pay a dime for this heaphone set. haha.  

anyway. first time seeing an R10 in such a great condition. good luck with the sale.
