Hifiman HE-500 with two amplifiers
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Buyer pays shipping.
The HE-500 was the end of my headphone journey. I went through a LOT of headphones over the course of the past three years while I was in Afghanistan. These were and are perfect. The amplifiers that are included with the sale both sound fantastic. Don't be suckered into paying 700+ for a headphone amp that will power planars; all you need is a simple amplifier--less in the signal path--that delivers plenty of power for a clean signal, thus my decision to use a speaker amplifier (thanks to Mal for the idea).
So why am I selling? No use for them anymore. I'm home now, and while I'll always have a soft spot for excellent headphones, I no longer sit at a desk 12+ hours a day, 7 days a week (when I wasn't traveling). I want them to go to a home where they will see more use than the once or twice a month that I get to sit down and really listen these days. I'm sad to see them go, but the money that is tied up in them can be better put elsewhere now that I'm back in the States.
In the box:
1 Topping TP21 amplifier (25WPC) that I used when I was on vacation, very little use
1 Dayton Audio APA150 150W Amplifier, a little beat up from being shipped home but seems to work fine.
1 HE-500 with Monster Cable QLGMTH QuickLock audio connectors soldered onto stock silver cable. Comes with original box.
Pictures to come sometime this weekend.
