For Sale:
FS: Sony MDR-SA5000 (Complete w. Box/Stand, Recabled, New Earpads)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Up for sale is a gently-used pair of Sony MDR-SA5000 headphones.  This package includes the headphones, Sony headphone stand, box and all original documentation.  I purchased these in 2007 from a fellow Head-Fi'er, and made some improvements, viz.:

 

  • Re-cabled the headphones with Sennheiser HD650 stock cable
  • Replaced the original leather earpads with official replacements from Sony (this was around 2010/2011)

 

These were never my main headphone, as I always seemed to drift more toward the Sennheiser HD650.  So, they have mostly been sitting in the box for the last 7 years, and I'd say they have less than 5 hours of use since I replaced the ear pads.  Functionally, the headphones are in absolutely perfect shape.  Cosmetically, I would rate them as very good - excellent.  There are some tiny flecks of paint missing on the assembly, but no major scuffs/scratches.  The ear pads, as previously mentioned, are basically brand new.  These ear pads alone cost around $80 from Sony.

 

If you're reading this, you're probably familiar with these legendary phones - they have an interesting combination of 'airiness' and punch that makes them excellent for electronica/EDM, fast jazz and other dynamic, percussion-intensive genres of music.  It pains me to give these up, but now that I have room for loudspeakers my headphones are getting less use than I would like.  I would prefer that these be enjoyed by a fellow music lover and audiophile.

 

Asking $400 OBO - I am not interested in trades at this time.

 

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

 

Thanks for looking!
