For sale is a pair of used HIFIMAN HE-500's. I bought them from a member of this site back in December, and they have been fantastic. The sound signature is very balanced--no overpowering high or low-end, crystal clear resolution, and a nice, full soundstage. They are in wonderful cosmetic condition and fully functioning. The drivers and speakers function perfectly. However, the right nub that says "HIFIMAN" and holds the right can to the headband fell off a little while ago (shown in one of the pictures). I was able to superglue it back on, and it holds pretty well, although the right can sometimes slips out. You will likely need to re-glue (or somehow otherwise affix) the nub or perhaps get a spare band for, say, an LCD2 and gimbals to remount the cans.
The headphones come shipped in their original box with the standard HIFIMAN cable. They include two sets of interchangeable ear cushions, one velvet and one leather. There is also a nonfunctioning recabling that came with the headphones when I bought them; perhaps with some knowhow, it could be repaired.
I'm asking for SOLD shipped, Continental US only. Thank you!
