Sennheiser HE60 Electrostatic with a channel imbalance
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I have a pair of Sennheiser HE60 I bought with a HEV70 a long time ago. It was working fine with the HEV70, but I wanted to use them with my Stax adapter so I reterminated them to Stax 5-pin connector.
Since I reterminated them, there's a channel imbalance: right side is weaker than left side. I don't understand why. I tried to redo the Stax connector but it didn't work. I'm not using a resistance in the connector.
It might only need a retermination since my connector is a bad quality one. The driver works, there's sound coming out of it, but it's weak.
I'm selling them as-is: it can be a hell of a deal if you have a good connector on hand, and you know how to repair headphones. I cannot guarantee the condition of the right driver, since I don't have the knowledge to evaluate it.
It comes with the original box which is in OK condition. The headphone itself is in excellent condition. There's a small dent on the left grill, which can be seen on the picture. The connector is not glue, so it can be opened easily if you wanna play inside it. I have a Sennheiser HD650 carton box to protect the box.
I read on Head-Fi that a guy from Germany got his pair refurbished at Sennheiser Germany. The one I'm selling could be a good base.
I'm asking 1000$US (price drop!) shipped and paypaled inside Canada/USA, which I believe is fair considering they would sell for 2000$US if they were working perfectly.
PRICE DROP AGAIN I NEED THIS GONE.
left side is 100%, right side is 10-20% (subjective).
I don't know if it's just a volume issue since I cannot get the volume higher, I don't have an equalizer. I tried them with my SRD7 Pro adapter with a weak Trends TA-10 Class-T amplifier.
I still have the original HE60 connector, which is in OK shape.
