For Sale:
Alessandro MS-Pro (less than 3 months old) (price drop)

Will Ship To: Australia

For sale is my Alessandro MS-Pro, the flagship Alessandro model (comparable to the Grado RS1).

Purchased from Headphonic in August 2012, not even 50 hours on them, perfect condition, still with original packaging and receipt. Currently going for around $750 new and there doesn't seem to be much stock around.

Almost everyone who uses them loves them, except me it seems! Don't get me wrong - they are still among the best headphones I've used. I prefer them to my former Beyer T1 and DT250 and AKG K701, for example. In my experience they are also a huge step up from the Alessandro MS2i in terms of refinement and balance, though they retain that Grado / Alessandro house sound. They are particularly good with rock and guitar - they render guitars like no other headphone I've ever heard. They are also generally regarded as a great all-rounder and I have certainly enjoyed them with a wide variety of music. I've just found I prefer a darker, smoother and less energetic sound so they haven't really seen too much use beside my HE500. If you prefer something brighter and more energetic, or you're looking to upgrade another Grado / Alessandro model, I'm sure you'll really enjoy them.

If you happen to have an AT W3000ANV you're looking to offload, willing to trade and pay extra (within reason). (Just bought a pair of W3000ANV new.)

Shipping and any Paypal fees additional. Shipping shouldn't be more than $20 insured, but I will check if you give me your details. You're welcome to pick up if you're in the Brisbane area too. Will accept Paypal, bank deposit or cash if you pick up.

Only Australian locations please.

Any questions, please ask!

EDIT: Added new photos and details.

I am interested but the price is too high. I can get a new pair from Alessandro for less. The going rate is about 70-80%of new price. Ie $500 to $600. Interested?

Wasn't sure what the going price was here since price info is removed after people sell. Was just going by what I paid and the retail price in Aus. Thanks for letting me know. Dropped the price to $600 plus shipping/Paypal, which is a fairly significant discount over the $699 listed on Alessandro's site given these are barely used (noting that Alessandro's current 25% off sale does not apply to headphones). Let me know by PM if you're still interested.

Hmm, wonder why your headphones are lighter in colour to my Alessandro MS-Pro. I thought mine were a newer model too :\

I had also wondered why mine were lighter in colour than some of the pictures I'd seen. But a quick Google image search suggests there are a few different shades of MS Pro. I guess they've changed the lacquer they use a few times. I think the colour's a matter of preference more than anything else smily_headphones1.gif

Great great headphones, underated on head-fi! I've let people who like the RS1 to try them and they do say they prefer these more.

 

Good luck in the sales!
