FS: HiFiMan HE-500 Headphones - MINT
Will Ship To: Anywhere
FS: HiFiMan HE-500 - MINT complete with leatherette box, silver cable (with DIY connectors), extra pads, soft case, and manual.
I recently purchased these a month ago from another head-fi'er and he had purchased them new in early Jan. 2014. He used them for three hours and I've only added another 2 hours - not even broken in yet.
They sounded fantastic out of the box and I honestly thought I would keep them until a great deal came on a pair of Audeze LCD-2.5s. I ran them head-to-head. I have to admit, classical, piano, symphonic, and strings sounded more pleasing to me on the HE-500s. Sound staging was great as well. But the LCDs had better bass and 'weight' that I prefer and the cushions fit my head better. It was a bit unfair as the HE-500's hadn't been broken in yet and the bass might have opened up. Plus, I didn't try the pleather cushions - the soft fabric ones are on it. But I can't keep holding on to these awesome cans so I'm listing them for sale. The prior owner matched them against the Sennheiser HD-800s and thought they performed well vs. a pair of cans three times the cost! If you get some good cables (like moon-audio's silver dragon), I believe the sound will even be better (which is what I was going to do).
MINT CONDITION: box and all accessories included. As I mentioned before, only around 5 hours total use - needs to be broken in and I'm sure it will give you excellent results.
I will double box so it will come to you in great shape. Price includes shipping (to CONUS only) and I will absorb Paypal fees.
Thanks for looking!
