These have been sold to the first member who responded. Thank you to the members who had an interest in these headphones.
I'm listing an excellent pair of headphones that I purchased about a week ago on Ebay. My listed price is the price that I paid for the headphones to get to my location, and is accordance with the rules of this site with respect to item "flipping". I know this sale is something I'll deeply regret at some future point as I don't believe such an excellent piece of history would be available as complete as this package is and for the cost. Though, those views are my views and opinions, they do come from an owner of dozens of Grado and Allesandro headphones over the past 3 years.
This is the "Complete" package, and as follows:
- Grado RS-80 headphones - Condition 8/10 on the Audiogon scale. No major marks, scuffs, etc. I'll only rate it an "8" to be sure I have things covered and at the very most, there could be a few minor blemishes as part of the natural owning process as well as the materials that are used during the build. These are completely stock. No modifications applied what-so-ever.
- Grado "Original" leather headband. This headband doesn't have a lot of padding, but is authentic leather and not the thin plastic material like the current lower end SR series of Grados that are offered today. The threads on this headband are in good shape, not missing, torn, frayed, etc.
- Grado SR-80 Original Box with foam inserts, etc. The box features all the original paperwork inside as received when new. This even includes the little 3" x 4" warranty registration card. The box has some small tear, rubs, etc. along with 3 pieces of packing tape on the bottom of the box. But, given its age, it is still in good condition.
- Grado "original" 4-conductor cable with 1/4" connector.
- Grado "Original" 15' Extension Cable.
- Sennheiser 414 pads, but the ones in this package have been dyed black.
These headphones were never used in a smoking environment. No unusual odors of any type.
Price: $$$ SOLD $$$. This price is for CONUS shipped and insured USPS Priority Mail. I double box my shipments with *new* packaging materials and don't use used boxes, etc. There are no additional PayPal fees as I'll absorb them. As to the insurance, I'll ensure it for the full value to ensure the buyer is completely covered on this purchase. My price is actually $11.00 higher than the price I paid for these, and is only applied towards
Photos: The photos of this listing are those from the actual auction where I purchased these. The only difference between the pictures and what I'm selling is the ear pads. I am providing a new pair of the Sennheiser "414" pads that have been dyed black and are not yellow, like in the picture. As you can see from the photographs, the markings on the cups and the headband are still in excellent shape - with the silver lettering essentially in tact and not rubbed off or scuffed.
Q: Are you considering selling these headphones for International buyers?
A: Actually not at this time. Higher-priced items are of a concern to me when selling internationally, and to handle it right would require International Express shipping which for Insurance, Tracking number, etc. runs in the $85.00 range (My cost).
Q: Is this listing an "OBO" Or Best Offer Listing with respect to the price?
A: No, unfortunately, it's not.
Additional Questions? Please let me know if you have them. I'll be glad to respond to any a bit later this evening when I'm back on-line.
