For Sale or Trade:
Custom NIB Sennheiser HD250 Linear II Headset [SOLD]

Will Ship To: Anywhere

For sale / trade with a Shure SE535:

NOS HD250 Linear II, this is Sennheiser's best closed headphone and a very special one, it just sounds right with natural sound and it has great bass and treble extension. THIS is the headphone you want if you are doing mixing.

It has been modified (not by me, by the local Sennheiser agent) by adding a Sennheiser MKE45-1 microphone to it. It came with bare wires like in the pictures, I soldered an Amphenol 6.3mm jack and a Neutrik XLR on it (see photo 3). The microphone needs phantom power, it's a professional microphone (in case you didn't know).

Who gets this headset together with my DACport / MICport combo, gets free shipping. Otherwise, shipping and any fees are paid by the buyer.

The MKE45-1 microphone has a gain adjust knob inside, you rotate it with a small flat screwdriver to adjust the gain for your equipment.
Here's a microphone test (CEntrance MICport pro with phantom power, near minimum volume on the MICport dial):

Do you still have your sennheisers for sale I would want to disconnect the mic would that be hard or could you do it and sell that separately and bring the price down of headphones.

... and you're the third guy who asked me that. smily_headphones1.gif The answer is no, If you want to do modding, get the whole headset.

I really don't know why you would want to cut out the microphone though, this is not a portable headphone - it's too big for that and the cups don't swivel or fold. For home use the mic is no impediment, in fact it's a big advantage. This is the best headset I've ever had and I've had them all: sennheisers, beyerdynamics, german maestros etc.

Yes I agree, this is a truly excellent headphone. I use mine as portable headphones as they are lightweight, durable, closed-back and are the best headphone I own. They are an upgrade to the HD600, in my opinion, and they don't sound like a closed-back. They are not hyped in any part of the frequency spectrum and present accurately, providing a lot of detail retrieval. I have not heard mine properly amplified yet so the midrange is slightly recessed. =)

This has been for sale for over a year...

Are you sure you don't want to drop the price? (Not that I am interested.)

The price is what it is. A new non-headset HD250 is 180€ so my price is more than fair. The list price on these is very high (over 450 if I remember correctly, it was a limited run for aviation). Just the mic capsule is 75€.smily_headphones1.gif

BTW, the microphone is a restricted bandwidth microphone (300-5000Hz) optimized not to pick up ambient noise in the airplane cabin.

I had a Beyerdynamic MMX300 manufaktur, this is better. I have another (old and slightly modded) HD250 that I'm using day to day so this is still NIB (I mean I put it on for like 30min total to compare when I was modding my old pair).

The 450 is an aviation headset? That's pretty cool.

The 450+ is the original price, this headset was a custom headset made by the aviation side of Sennheiser. I added a picture with the connectors.

This might be one of the longest standing FS threads ever, and I am a bit surprised by that.

At the start I had two pairs, the cheaper lightly used one sold. And I'm one of those guys, I'll wait 'till the end of head-fi if I think the price is fair. smily_headphones1.gif
