For Sale:
[Price Drop] FS: mint HiFiMAN HE-500 w/ All-New-&-Unused Earpads [+Options] -- Free USPS Priority

Will Ship To: 48 Contiguous US States

Selling mint-condition HE-500s with just several weeks of light use on them (~50 hours) for money reasons.  Important to note that I have never even touched the stock headband (slapped a Beyer strap on it in the same motion taking it out of the box) nor have I ever used the stock pleather pads (immediately installed velours).  Also critical to note that I will be replacing the used uneven stock velour pads with brand-new-&-unused, even-&-flawless spare velours (shown near white box in photos) prior to shipment.

 

Stock sale includes everything in the HE-500 -only photo apart from the Sennheiser 1/4" to 1/8" Stereo Cable Adapter & Beyer Headband Cushion Strap, as well as the balanced Canare cable, Neutrik XLR connnectors, & travel case items visible in the lefthand side of the photo.  So that's everything that the headphones originally come with, plus the brand-new replacement velours swapped in for free.  I may be willing to swap cases (travel case instead of stock storage box) at no cost - PM me and ask if you'd be interested.

 

Listed price includes shipping -- depending on which PayPal payment method you use to pay, you may have to add 3.5%.  High selling preference for established members w/ ~100+ posts & 2+ positive feedback, though might make an exception for someone with a great buyer history and fewer posts, or for someone who can link to (& prove) great eBay feedback history.  I can also link to my own flawless eBay profile & feedback history, upon request

 

If you have any questions or want additional photos, please let me know - otherwise, please PM if interested.  Thanks!

 

Options:

-> Since I will be taking off the used pads, you can specify which type of pad you want installed on them before shipment.

-> If you don't want the pleather pads, I will keep them as extras and knock $10 off.

-> If you don't want the extra connectors for DIY cabling, I will keep them as extras and knock $5 off.

-> If you want the pictured Sennheiser 1/4" to 1/8" Stereo Cable Adapter pictured, add $10 extra.

-> If you want the pictured new-&-sealed Beyer Headband Snap-on Cushion Strap, add $10 extra.

-> If you want a matched pair of unopened gold-plated Neutrik XLR connectors (NC4MXX-B + NC4FXX-B) for modding the stock silver cable into a balanced + SE adapter set, I can include them at-cost for $15 extra.  I'll add the modding work myself with your pre-specified preferred lengths using eutectic solder for free, too.

-> If you want the custom balanced Black Canare cable shown in some of the photos (~61 inches long end-to-end; unsleeved) terminated in a Neutrik NC4MXX-B, add $70 extra. NO LONGER AVAILABLE

-> If you want a matching black travel case with gold HiFiMAN label (shipped separately), add $40 extra (includes shipping).  I bought two of these from an aftermarket / 3rd party retailer expecting them to be the newer blue type, and lucked out when they shipped me the old black type that match both the HE-500 & 4 much better. 

--------------

-> I will also consider selling the custom balanced + SE adapter set shown attached to my HE-4s for ~$120 extra.  Total length of ~60inches, w/ SE adapter alone ~12inches.  Hand-braided 23.5awg Cardas Litz silver-plated copper in teflon, 4 strands/side, 8 total.  Same Neutriks listed above + Furutech 704G Stereo plug.  ViaBlue separator at the 'Y'.  Would also swap the set for the stock HE-500 silver cable for $40 extra.

-> I also might  consider selling my stock HE-4 10ft black sleeved cable (visible in one of the photos).  Thinking something around $100 extra for it, ballpark. Would also swap it for the stock HE-500 silver cable for $30 extra. NO LONGER AVAILABLE

I don't know dude...  mine are in the box, unopened and I've been thinking about it but yours are opened and broken in already... breaking them in is kinda a special thing.... will do some research.
