FS: AKG K340s and Emotiva mini-x with headphone out
Will Ship To: ConUS
I'm selling one pair of AKG K340 electrostatic-dynamic headphones. I really loved their sound, so much that I bought two pairs of them.
The first pair has been thoroughly modded, which I bought from a fellow head-fier. The plastic screen is taken off, baffle is modded, headband and elastics had been changed. I added a last touch by swapping a pair of Audeze vegan ear pads on. I believe this is a unique pair of K340s. They have excellent bass! Quality, quantity and extension of both top and bottom ends are very impressive. The mids are probably a little recessed in comparison, but still clear and beautiful like old AKG sound. They are in excellent condition, see pictures for details. Price for this one is $235 plus shipping and paypal (if not gift). This pair has been sold.
The second pair is basically in stock form, with the plastic screen removed, and oval-shape vinyl pads. I bought them off ebay and made the slight modifications. This pair is probably the 'bass-heavy' version, and has a nice balanced sound. Also in excellent condition except for some color paint on the left cup (see picture no.4 & 5). Elastics in good condition. Priced at $165 plus shipping and paypal if not gift.
Reason for selling: see last picture.
I have original ear pads which will be automatically included, but if you only want stock pads, I can take off the cost of the replaced ear pads. Please PM me for further negotiation.
Edit 06/03: I will also consider throwing in the well-known Emotiva mini-x a-100 amp (modded with a 1/4 headphone out) for an additional $170+shipping. Pictures upon request. Edit 07/22: this amp will not be available if sale happens after July 30.
Note: if you're looking at these, you probably know how good sounding, and how hard to drive they are. I find that most normal headphone amps don't do them justice, but pairing with Emotiva mini-x gives surprisingly good results. Some amps designed for planar models probably work well too.
