For Sale or Trade:
Magnum v5 Headphones, Limited Ed. Vibro Cups
Will Ship To: EU
I'd like to sell/trade my Magnum V5 (Turbulent X) headphones. The drivers are brand new as they are warranty replacements and are housed in limited edition book matched Vibro Classics with silver mesh and matching rod stops. I have also upgraded the headband with the Onyx Manta leather headband available from Turbulent labs, and the cable is a stock cable from an Alessandro MS1i. The headphones are in superb condition, with the only obvious sign of wear being slight marks on the leather headband where the Rod Stops rub against it.
I'm considering trading because I have another pair of Magnums and would like to add another pair to my collection that would complement them. I'm particularly interested in the following:
The headphones will be delivered in a Grado box along with the certificate from Vibro Labs regarding the cups. Three pairs of pads are included - comfies, bowls and HD414 pads that have been dyed black (bought on ebay).
To confirm that the cups are indeed unique here's what Luke from Vibro Labs sent me in his email describing the cups:
"I have sitting here in my hands, a set of Vibro Classics that are really special. They are unlike the other Classics I have made. I was going to list them as my first Limiteds.
The shape is the same, but the piece of mahogany I used was quite incredible. The grain is highly figured. I increased the grain contrast by wet sanding them with a drying oil before finishing them with the hard polyurethane varnish. Afterwards, I polished the surface and rubbed the face with 100% pure yellow beeswax.
But, the best part is that they are bookmatched (the two faces are almost identical mirror images) and they also have stainless grilles. AND they will come with matching rod stops, which I only specify for Limiteds and pre-orders."
