For Sale or Trade:
IC/FT: DIY Magnum V4 (Cabillas mahogany cups, DHC cable, G-Cush pads, aftermarket headband frame, Onyx Ray Manta headband)
Will Ship To: Canada, CONUS
I've just finished making a pair of Magnum V4's I've been planning to do for a while. However, after I got the Magnum drivers, I've had the occasion to get a pair with black star drivers by Martin Custom Audio, and so won't be needing the Magnums.
They have mahogany cups made by Cabillas. They arrived with a small imperfection in the finish, which I fixed using walnut oil. They are truly gorgeous.
The cable is made of DHC Nucleotide (dark teflon tubing) and is about 4 feet long. It ends in 4 pin XLR, but I can reterminate it to whatever you wish, or make an adapter.
The headband is a special kind which was sold in small quantities by a Head-Fi member on the forums a while ago. I don't think you can get it anywhere anymore. It's similar in style to the stock Grado one, but doesn't swivel from side to side, and allows more movement in the vertical axis. I find it -Much- more comfortable than the regular one. The pads sit on your ears with a much more natural fit. It also has 2 bands, kind of like Audio-Technica's or the Sony R10. I was told it was possible to install a leather headband over the frame, but never tried myself. If you feel like it, I have a Onyx Ray Manta headband by Headphonelounge, which I can include.
I find the G-Cush pads to be the best with these, so those will be the pads included in the sale/trade.
Send me a PM if you're interested. Let me know how much you'd be willing to buy them for, or if you have a trade offer. I would be mainly interested in the Schiit Gungir (for which I would be willing to add money), or other high quality DAC's.
