For Sale:
FS: HiFiMAN HE-5LE

Will Ship To: CONUS

Up for sale is my beloved HE5LE. They have been good to me for many months, but the Tesla T1 better suits my tastes. These have been modified on the headband for more comfort by WJE, a member here. Not much to say bad about these, other than you need a decently powerful amp. I use an Emotova A100x, which for $219 sounds great! I also use my DIY Twisted Pear Ventus EZ, which sounds very good aswell. I hate to sell these, but it's time to let go. Come with He-6 Silver chord.

I would like to get $490 for them, and I'll pay for shipping, buyer pays fees, but I can negotiate biggrin.gif


They were received very well at the NYC Meet, and I'm hoping some mentions of them paired with my Emotiva show up in the impressions thread.

PM with questions biggrin.gif

Oh gosh, these headphones bring a tear to my eye.  Since there are not pictures attached to this posting, I do have to say, these were some of the original run of the HE-5LE by HifiMan.  They have the brown woodgrain box, with a few scrapes.  However, the cups of the HE-5LE are not the gloss black like you normally see.  They are actually a matte black finish since HifiMan used a very thin rubber coating on the cups on the original HE-5LE headphones.

 

These are really gems.  Additionally, I do have pictures via the following link in my gallery where you can see the matte finish cups, as well as the real leather custom headband that was sewn in place over the existing HifiMan leather band.

Additionally, here is a link to some pictures from HifiMan  depicting the HE-5LE in the special finish, as well as the brown woodgrain box they utilized at the time.  http://www.head-fi.org/g/a/747914/he-5le-headphones-by-hifiman/

 

 

Best of luck with the sale!
