Sennheiser unipolar 2000 mod thread - Page 12

post #166 of 170
Thread Starter 

Went for 59 euros BIN. Typical BIN seven months ago was almost twice that. Some guy was trying to sell a pair for 200 euros a month back but he may've abused a substance for sure.

 

The Unipolar were sold in Australia back in the day, I'm sure one day a pair comes up locally there.

I have owned the HD540 for many years and I can emphatically state that it is clearly superior to the K701 in every respect. I too consider the K701 a flawed design, with a grainy and rather unpleasant treble and no Bass body to speak of.

 

It's the stuff of which Myths are made...

701 is rubbish to say the least. Some that have claimed it needs a $2k + headphone from back in the day to fix its massive treble and midrange flaws are on something.

I couldn't agree more!

 

All the best.

Right now, there's two Unipolars for sale at an online EU marketplace at €85 and at €75. Both are said to be fully functioning and both come with the HER2000. If anyone's interested send me a PM. Act fast though.
