Grado Prestige SR200 - with HP1000 drivers - collectors items - mint

Will Ship To: Anywhere

 I am selling a mint, hardly used pair of Grado Prestige Series SR200 headphones which I held in storage for quite some time. This set is a collectors item as it contains the pink/red HP1000 driver (see image with flash above - red HP1000 drivers clearly seen). This driver was used in the Grado Hp1000 headphones, the flagship headphones of yesteryear. The story goes that they ran out of 'ordinary' drivers for the standard SR200 headphones for a short run and were forced to use the HP1000 drivers in their lower end headphones.

This set is much wanted by serious collectors, especially as the writing is close to perfect on this set and they haven't been modified or touched. I will also include a 3.5mm extension converter cable, which cost £60, in this auction. Means you can use these headphones with your portable player, as well as the standard amplifier in the house.

These have hardly been used although I fitted a new set of flat pads from Todd the Vinyl Junkie in America. Just so they are fresh on the ears !

Tested for a few minutes and they sound fantastic, they were stored indoors for years in a dry, warm house.

Own a collectors item, which sound very like the HP1000 drivers which cost many thousands of pounds today on the second hand market.

Free postage via DHL tracked, overnight within the United Kingdom. International options available. they aren't heavy so costs shouldn't be too high. I only used tracked, so please don't ask. If you need a shipping price, send me your country and post code please.

Thanks. (sorry for the poor pictures, im waiting on a replacement lens for my Nikon SLR)

I know that the older grados carried the redish pink driver.  I have a pair of older entry level grades(SR125s) I believe with a pink driver.  Apparently the RS-1's had a pink driver as well.  I think lots of headphones of this time had pink drivers.  Not necessarily an HP1000 driver in those.

Nope from the picture those are HP1000 drivers for sure, you can tell by looking at the center it should have that star like shape. I would know since I owned 3 pairs of grados with HP drivers once! good luck with the sale zardon.
