FS/FT: HiFiMAN HE-500 (w/ Mods) + Aftermarket Cables $450USD/$480AUD
Hey guys, selling my beloved HiFiMAN HE-500 headphone. I've had it for a few months and cosmetically it is in very good condition. The pads are still very nice and feel great. I honestly never thought I would let this go, but I really want to buy a HD800 and unfortunately my budget cannot allow me to keep both.
The HE-500's have a removable grill mod where the original grills are replaced with something more open, which, in turn, makes the headphone sound more open. I have the pleather pads (one of them have a crack in the stiching) and the original grills as well, but I like them modded much more.
The cables I have are:
- Toxic Cables Silver Poison +$220
- Forza AudioWorks FAW Noir HPC +$160
- Artemis Cables Silver Cable +$100
I'm not sure if the Artemis Cables one is silver or SPC, hence the low price. It has a ton of detail and sounds a little brighter than the SP, so I think it might be pure silver. $480 is you just want the headphone without any cables. My favourite cable is the Silver Poison, it sound perfect to my ears, so I would highly recommend you get it with that. The FAW cable is smoother and more bassy if you prefer that sound sig.
These usually go for around $500 in the US, but I have priced it at around $450USD by today's conversions. The only trade I'm interested in is a HD800 and I will add cash on top.
PM me if you are interested and if you have any questions.
