For Sale or Trade:
FS: Sony SA5000 headphones, Mint condition - Toronto, Canada
Will Ship To: North America
I've got to stop with impulse purchases, and these were exactly what that was. With 009's coming these really don't have any place in my setups... got them mainly because I was able to get them at a good price in near new condition, and I always wondered how these sounded. And from my day of listening, these are really good headphones if you like things a bit livelier up top. Very clear and detailed, with amazingly tight midbass (though they don't extend as well). What was interesting about these headphones too was that headphones of these type are usually sibilant up top, too... but these were somehow able to avoid that! It's really good for what it is IMO.
The headphone are essentially near new. I bought it supposedly used but I really don't see any signs of usage at all on these. Cups are pristine, so are the pads and the headband, as well as the cables. They come with their solid metal stand as well, and with both the inner and outer box.
I'm looking to let these go for $300 USD inclusive of shipping (Paypal fee of 3% will have to be paid however, unless you want to pay as gift) in North America... I can ship elsewhere but your shipping fees will go up accordingly, and unfortunately it's not really cheap to ship a box of this size outside the continent. I'm in Toronto, Canada, so if one wants a local deal I can obviously eat the shipping costs.
But I'm not in a particular hurry to sell these either, will enjoy it in the meantime. Do PM me with your interests, but I will not respond to any unreasonable lowball offers (if you have a reasonable lower offer based on other current sale of this headphone going on, etc, do let me know).
