FS: HiFiMAN HE-500 (Excellent Condition w/ Comfort band) PRICE DROP!

Will Ship To: CONUS

Hello Head-fi!

For sale is my pair of HiFiMAN HE-500's. Unfortunately I'm selling these following recent medical problems. I figured it would be more responsible to have some finances on hand to help support my family with costs and in case anything comes up during treatment. I am the second owner of the phones, previously purchased from a fellow head-fier in May of 2013. The phones themselves were originally purchased in February 2013. Total head time in the year I've owned it is only about 150 hours and the previous owner was a light user as well.

Full disclosure on the condition: The cups are immaculate and have no imperfections. The leather headband itself has been covered by an additional comfort band since the day I received the phones. The velour pads still look great and I haven't used the leather pads since owning the phones. The only flaw on the phones are two small tarnish/rub marks on part of the headband assembly (photos included). I believe they are from the cylindrical side ornaments touching or rubbing the lower metal circle. Thankfully, they aren't very conspicuous and you shouldn't ever notice them during normal use.

$500 $450 includes shipping, please include 3% for Paypal. I have good feedback on Head-fi, feel free to use gift and save a little money if you are comfortable. Headphones ship with the blue display box, both types of ear pads, stock silver cable, and the comfort band. HiFiMAN originally included a pair of spare input jacks for DIY use which I've made into the black cable shown in the gallery. It is a DIY 4-pin XLR balanced OCC copper cable with the wire sourced directly from Frank at Toxic Cables. If you're interested I can include it for an additional $40.

Thanks for looking and feel free to ask questions! smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah unfortunately genuine Sieveking Omega stands are a bit too pricey for me. I actually had someone in China inspect and pick a few up for me in person since the quality varies dramatically among the imitations. I would watch out for the eBay listings since you don't know what you're gonna get.
