Sony MDR - F1 rare open headphone renewed
Will Ship To: Anywhere
For sale the classic Sony MDR-F1 headphones - the most comfortable and open sounding headphones I have owned and well deserving of their stellar reputation. They have a very open dimensional sound-stage , easy to drive and really feel like nothing on your head. Original owner . Modded and refurbished as follows:
1. stock cable replaced with Mogami microphone cable terminated with a Neutrik right angle plug - less microphonic and better strain relief
2. replacement of the cloth cover over the drivers with more acoustically transparent grille cloth- the black pad in the pictures
3. Escaine ear pads cleaned- the outer grey ring
These are fully functional headphones that IMHO are at least as good sounding as stock ones with better bass as a result of the grill cloth replacement and new cables.
The earpads do have wear and replacements are available from audiocubes if you like but there is considerable life left on the current ones.
