IC: Sennheiser HE60 + HEV70 "Baby Orpheus" MINT condition + Stax adapter + extras
Will Ship To: Anywhere
For sale is a Sennheiser HE60 and HEV70 electrostatic headphone and amp system. These are no longer made and get nabbed up quite quickly when they get put up for sale. Measurements show this to be one of the most neutral headphones ever made.
This system in particular is in mint condition. I've even put a brand new cable, earpads, and headpad on them. This set probably has under 100 hours of use in its lifetime. I also replaced the o rings around the drivers with brand new ones so that this doesn't become an issue for the new owner for a while. The HE60 drivers are held in place by rubber o rings which deteriorate over time and eventually break. This causes a loss in sound quality, especially in the bass spectrum. This is a common issue with HE60s, in fact many sets probably have broken o rings without the owners even knowing it, so they haven't even heard these headphones at their full potential.
I am including a professionally made HE60 to Stax adapter cable so you can use these headphones with the best amps made if you choose to do so at a later date. The adapter was made in the very small group buy Dinan set up a few years back (~$250/ea) and has the appropriate bias resistor in place so that these won't get damaged while being powered by a Stax pro bias output.
I am also including an extra headpad, extra pins and heatshrink for the adapter, an extra HE60 cable, and an extra wall wart. This will have both a 120v and 220v wall wart included, which means you can use this system almost anywhere in the world or you can sell it to somebody in Europe down the line more easily. Total cost of extras and adapter is over $500.
Original headphone case, headphone and amp boxes, manuals, and even original Sennheiser shipment box included.
Given the extras, internal maintenance, and condition of this system I am expecting offers to be well above market price of the average such system up for sale here. This is likely the most complete and best condition HE60+HEV70 set on Head Fi. If you are interested in a less pricey set, check out my other classifieds as I have another HE60+HEV70 in very good condition up for sale. Picture above shows proof that I do in fact have 2 of these up for sale.
Payment: due to an issue with Paypal in the past, I will not be accepting Paypal as a form of payment as I refuse to give them business. I will accept money order, wire transfer, or other online payment services. I have perfect feedback and go to meets all the time, so you have nothing to worry about as I'm not going anywhere. I've done multiple transactions without paypal in the last 2 years for items much more expensive than this without a problem.
Low ballers will be put on ignore until item is sold.
