Beyer DT990/250 Premium (includes shipping and paypal!)
Will Ship To: CON US
Selling these headphones for a friend. These were my headphones prior to him purchasing them from me. My buddy's selling both of these to help fund an HD650.
Beyerdynamic DT990 Premium (250 ohm) - $145 : In used but excellent condition. I purchased these off ebay in Spring 2012. I put about 50-60 hours on the headphones, and my friend has added approximately another 100. No scratches on the headphones that I'm aware of. The pads were recently replaced and have a lot of life left. The sound is fantastic. I have had great success when using them with tubes, as they mellow out the high end of the sonic spectrum. Only real flaw I have discovered is the headband doesn't hold it's place too well when the headphones are not being worn. I purchased the headphones on ebay and can honestly say that the headband displayed this characteristic when I acquired them, although it seems slightly looser now from use. There is a small part inside the headband mechanism which locks the headband positioning in place and it can be replaced from Beyerdynamic, so I've read.
Sennheiser HD598 - $145 : The headphones themselves are in outstanding condition. I can barely tell they are almost two years old. I purchased them in December of 2011 and used them as my main cans for several months. I then sold them to my friend who hasn't used them much since purchasing the DT990 off of me. They are easily the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. The sound was a bit too warm for my taste, but I prefer my headphones to be neutral / slightly north of neutral. While the headphones are in near perfect condition, the cable has some marks and crimps (he's guessing he ran his desk chair over it). I've listened to the headphones and can safely say this does not impact the sound at all. The pads are in good shape, I don't see a glaring need to replace them. These have been used for 300-400 hours at the very most.
We're looking to get $145 for the DT990, shipping and paypal included. If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures, please let me know.
Thanks for looking!
EDIT: HD598 is no longer for sale
