For Sale: FS: HiFiMan HE-500 Headphones - MINT

For Sale:
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!

Hey, very interesting offer. Tomorrow is my birthday and I have asked for these exact headphones! If I happen to not get them, you will probably see me back around here :beerchug:
