Vintage DR-119CH Vanco Headphones circa 1971

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any insight as to what this model is designed for?  These were released in 1971 and I have a pair in mint condition but don't know what to do with them.  Sell?

 

Sorry to post this in the main thread area(no responses in the recommended thread), but I have people wanting to buy these off me for about $25 and I know they have to be worth more given the condition being mint in box.

 

THESE ARE NOT VANCO'S TYPICAL WHOLESALE JUNK HEADPHONES

 

Can anyone please give me an idea what I should sell them for....perfect condition...would pics help?  I've never seen anything like them.

That name is exacty what Elega brand uses, and they are a very large company that made things for others to put their names on.

 

Is it these?

if so they have a speaker setup inside like the Sansui SS-20 etc. A large paper cone  with a smaller mylar driver over top for the highs.

 

Some of this older stuff can sound good, but still old. Looks a lot like one of the vintage Whardfedales.

That's the one! Any idea how much I could sell them for? They are literally in perfect condition in their box and sound phenomenal.

Vanco knew absolutely nothing about them and they seem to be non existent on the for sale scene. Seems like having an American name on them could lend to the exclusivity.

Thoughts?
