For Sale:
FS: Recabled Ultrasone HFI-780s

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I bought these from another Head-Fi'er a few years back, and I just haven't been using them.  They have been professionally recabled (by APureSound, as I recall) as dual-entry, and have wonderful clarity and response.  The cable is 56" from cup to jack (gold mini). I estimate just over 100 burn-in hours total.  There are a few minor cosmetic blemishes on the cups (see below), but otherwise these headphones are in great working condition, and deserve to be used.

Cosmetic Issues:

 

Scuffing on headband and stiffening of leatherette:

Hairline scratches on cups (mark on the right is just a fingerprint)

700

 

Tiny dings and a little finish loss on the underside of the cups

700

I use PayPal, and prefer to ship within the US.  Offers are always welcome.

Out of curiosity what is the purpose of recabling like this?

Recabling is fairly normal with these headphones because the stock cables leave the sound somewhat tinny and harsh.  When done, the amazing definition is still there, but the edge is taken off.  There are a lot of great threads discussing this on the forums, with better before/after descriptions and technical explanations, if you're curious.
