HifiMAN HE-500 + Jergpads - Excellent Condition (Pics Added)
Will Ship To: EU
As I am going to be away for a few months, I'm regretfully selling my beloved HE-500 headphones, since I haven't even had a chance to even use them for the past 4 months, and won't for the next 5-12 months...
The headphones were bought retail in Europe. They come with:
- The original HifiMAN case
- Brand new jergpads made by Modulor (received in January and used for less than 2 hours. You don't know what those phones are capable of until you've changed the pads, honestly!
- Three pairs of pads (one pair of stock velour, two pairs of modded pleathers à la Jergpad 1.0, modded more or less cleanly a year ago before the final Jergpad tutorials)
- Velour pouch
- The stock silver cable (read below)
The headband and drivers are in excellent shape. I'd give the headphones a conservative 8.5/10 as far as condition goes.
At any rate, awesome headphones--best I've owned--that truly make music sound glorious and realistic!
Stock cable would be something like 7.5/10, since I ended up adding shrink wrap on the connectors' side for extra strain relief. I'd still recommend changing that stock cable, which is a microphonic mess and needs to be screwed back in every once in a while... And switching to even a basic OCC cable makes a colossal difference!
I'll include the stock silver cable, which works fine, but is a little hard to screw on properly on one side (it's stays screwed in fine for months, once you get it right though), but consider the price as a "no cable included offer", as I don't want to be responsible if you can't screw it on properly.
I'm looking to sell the headphones for 470€, mainly in the European Union to avoid any customs issues; the jergpads by Modulor cost me $60 alone. I'm open to negotiating (shipping fees, paypal...), so long as I'm don't get silly offers...
Thanks for reading!
