For Sale:
HE-5, Claro Walnut cups, mini-XLR connectors, Q-Audio Red Silk cable (SOLD)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Honestly didn't think I'd every get rid of these. Hand crafted by Martin of Martin Custom Audio, these custom Claro Walnut cups have been fitted with mini-XLR's that can accept any Audeze compatible cable (LCD-2, LCD-3, etc. The grain on these is something to behold. Stock ear pads have been replaced with leather angled pads to enhance comfort and imaging. 

 

The cable is a Q-Audio red french with mini-XLR to Hifiman adaptors, and an 4 pin XLR (balanced) to RCA SE adaptor.

I'm including a Hifiman Travel case.

 

The wood in in perfect shape. The screens Martin installed were thinner than stock, so there's a very slight indent on one side. Also, for the sake of full disclosure, I mistakenly though I had a short on one end of the Q cable, so I reattached the mini-XLR. It's mechanically sound and visually clean. 

 

So there you go. If you're interested in a one of a kind headphone, check this out.

 

$(SOLD) + shipping + paypal fees (if any)

Hi, how is the sound signature with these cans?

Actually, the sound sonics are very much what I like :-) They're somewhere between the HE-500's and the HE-6 sonically - but closer to the 6. Love the sound. Driving by a 'wire' SS b balanced amp, they hit hard, fast and with great dynamics. 

 

I've had a few things up for sale lately that have been in my 'never gonna sell' stack. Mainly, it's because I'm saving up for a MacPro for my work. We have a couple of other priority 'save' efforts going now that's taking my extra funds, so if I want to upgrade my computer I've got to get ride of stuff I love. Such is life sometimes :-)
