For Sale:
## SOLD $$ FS: Hybrid Sennefied Grado Headphones

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I'd like to offer a pair of hybrid headphones for sale.  I've finished this one project and was able to get my fix from it.  Yet, I still have a few more to go since this first pair was quite enjoyable.

 

So, what are these things about?  They're basically the skeleton of a Grado headphone.  However, there's a bit of a twist as the drivers are actually 40mm Sennheiser drivers designed to run in an open ear cup configuration.  

 

What basically happens in this "mash up" of a scenario?  After owning many models of Grado headphones as well as Magnum-based Grados with ver. 3.5, ver 4, and the newest X drivers, I think this combination was stumbled upon and for good reason. 

 

Features:

 

  • Padauk custom wooden cups polished with wax to provide a satin sheen and a durable finish.
  • Finer woven gold-toned mesh covering the driver opening at the end of the cup.
  • A much softer headband with adequate foam amounts for longer listening sessions.
  • A headband that prevents the typical Grado cable twists by using a headband that has fixed gimbals to prevent swivel from occuring.
  • 6 foot custom Canare Star Quad headphone cable covered in a soft, black monofilament sheathing.
  • A 1/4" Neautrik / Rean plug.
  • One pair of Sennheiser 414 quarter-modded ear pads, dyed black.
  • One new pair of Sennheiser 414 pads, dyed black.  Allowing the new owner to configure this pair of pads in a manner that will be comfortable to them.

 

Price: $SOLD$.  This includes USPS Priority Mail shipping and insurance within the continental United States.  All new packaging material as well as a new shipping box will be utilized for shipping.  Delivery confirmation / tracking number will be provided.

 

PayPal Fees:  These are covered by me.  No need to pay additional amounts or send gift payments.

 

Edit 1/4/2014: Price Adjustment

In a word, excellent.  I've had the PS-500 and the RS1i before in addition to the Magnums.  The capability of this particular mix is quite good.  In fact, I have such a passion towards it that I don't think I'd buy another Magnum driver and certainly night a higher end model of Grados as I truly believe that this offering can edge those out.  It has an excellent sound stage, great low end, mids and upper end / details, etc.   I have 2 additional pair for myself.  Also these really behave with the G-Cush pads and there is no real loss of bass response in that configuration.
