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.

Never thought I'd see the day that you got rid of these, mate!

 

GLWS! Someone will be very lucky to pick these up, especially for the price.
