For Sale:
ATH-W1000x Modded Re-cabled | Purrin's Mod | L3000 Pads

Will Ship To: CONUS

Hello everyone,

 

I'm selling my favorite cans, the Audio Technica W1000x woodies in order to account for a final

upcoming University payment.I'm also planning on upgrading to a fully balanced system and

I cannot afford to keep these around while paying for school. I won't be keeping these headphones

up for long as I am looking to make a quick sale.

 

So here is the scoop of what you will be getting:

 

The headphones have been re-cabled using Double Helix Cables about a month ago:

http://www.doublehelixcables.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1&zenid=5i9ag4ug2hokqu41fevls93ir7

 

This was done because the stock cable for these headphones is quite subpar in quality in my

opinion. I will include the old wood plug and what is left of the stock cable with the headphones.

The new cables are braided and covered with black cotton sleeve and Techflex. Heat Shrinks

were used to keep the cable braided and sturdy. The cable is just under 10 feet long.

 

The headphones have also been modded with Purrin's mod which can be seen here:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/544507/ath-w1000x-mods

 

It basically tightens up the bass making it a bit 'Grado' punchy and cleaner in the sub bass

frequencies while still maintaining the woody sound signature. The mod is fully reversible if you

wish to remove it.

 

The stock pleather pads have been replaced with real genuine leathers pads that were originally

from the ATH-L3000 headphones. They were imported from Japan through Audio Cubes 2.

 

I am the first owner of these headphones, I bought them just over a year ago imported from Japan

as well. The wood cups themselves are in near perfect condition with just a couple of nicks on an edge

and a very light scratch to the side of the right cup.

 

Also, one of the 3-D wings that sit on your head has come loose (second picture) , but can be reattached using adhesive.

I have not done so myself as you can simply place the wing where it goes and let it rest on your head. It works fine that way for me.

 

edit:

I'm also going to throw in about 7 feet of spare OCC copper wire from Double Helix Cables

http://www.doublehelixcables.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=2&zenid=5i9ag4ug2hokqu41fevls93ir7

in case buyer needs to re-solder contact some time in the future or to use it for another project.

 

I'll also throw in 5 feet of Techflex 3/8" Expandable Sleeving I used to sleeve the cable.

 

The $old price includes shipping but not the paypal fee. Buyer pays the 3% paypal.

Headphones will be shipped with the original box.

 

Let me know if you have any questions by shooting me a PM and I will promptly answer!

Thanks for looking!

Hey again,

 

Yep, I built the cable with the help of friends who had more experience with soldering and

some family for braiding the long cables. Everything used to make the cable was from

Double Helix Cables except for the techflex.
