For Sale:
AKG Collection Sell-Off! K550, K240 Sextett MP, K280, K141 (silver), K240 Studio

Will Ship To: Continental US

I have way too many headphones that don’t see any use so it’s time to let some of my beloved AKG collection go! Each pair has seen little to no use from me since I acquired them, and so I am simply listing each of them for the amount I paid. Buyer pays shipping (to CONUS only); I will eat PayPal seller fees. All conditions listed are relative to age (some of these are quite old). All ear pads show normal signs of wear. 

 

K 550 - $150

Very good condition: additional foam ring added to each ear pad to improve seal (easily removable)

 

K 240 Sextett (MP) - $70

Very good condition: inner foam cleaned out and replaced with blue/white filter foam, elastics replaced with black headband elastics, jack re-soldered and plastic (cracked) jack sleeve replaced with metal sleeve.

 

K 280 - $80

Excellent condition: inner foam cleaned out and replaced blue/white filter foam, elastics replaced with black headband elastics

 

K 141 (Silver) - $35

Very good condition, elastics replaced with black headband elastics. Pleather coating is completely worn off of ear pads, leaving the fabric padding underneath (I prefer it to pleather)

 

K 240 - Studio $25

Headband assembly cracked on one side and is held together with glue (this side shown in picture, looks normal): works fine and is in good condition otherwise. Didn’t come with threaded 1/4in adapter when I got them so I am including a generic adapter

 

Also see my Aphex HeadPod 4 listing if you are interested in an inexpensive, clean, and powerful amp+dac capable of driving any of these 600ohm cans to kingdom come.

Can you tell me about the foam solution for your K550? I've had difficulty achieving good results with the other filler methods.

For only $150 you can see for yourself!

 

jk :biggrin:

 

After removing the pads and the foam inserts inside of them (they seem to be memory foam or something similar) I traced around them with a sharpie on top of some 1" blue and white filter foam (pretty low density, we had some extra lying around work from our HVAC), cut out two rings from the filter foam and reinserted them into the pads underneath the original foam inserts. Voilà! Fuller, more firm and better sealing pads.
