SOLD: Perfect Sansui SS-20 (MIB with all papers and accessories)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Got a Like-New Sansui SS-20, with all original papers and packaging. It even has the original 6 foot extension cable that came with the headphones as well as the warranty card.
Everything except the box (which has a few knicks and scuffs in various spots) is in absolutely perfect condition. Like seriously I have never seen a vintage headphone that looked so nice. No stretched out cables, no scuffs, no scratches whatsoever. Everything on the headphone is 100% perfect and 100% original.
There are two imperfections, both photographed in macro. One is the cable entry on one cup (which is not damage but in fact a production nuance) and the other is a very slight stain on the top of the headband from the inside of the box. These do not affect functionality.
The only other issue is that the volume and tone dials need some cleaning. The speakers cut in and out when the dials are adjusted, but with both on max the headphone works perfectly. The repair would be easy, just a bit of Deoxit on the dials, but I just don't have it in me to take apart such a beautiful piece.
Sound is actually extremely nice for this time period. Not excessively middy, with a high level of detail and excellent soundstaging and imaging especially for a closed headphone. Beats many headphones in the >$100 range in stock form and improvements are definitely possible with some modifications. Sansui made some nice stuff back in the day and this would be great for any vintage hi-fi enthusiast or collector.
Asking for $80 shipped and PayPal'd. I'll ship via PriorityMail with tracking. Price is open to discussion. PM with offers.
