{SOLD} Used Claret Alpha Dog in excellent condition with two 6' cables, 1/4" and 4-pin XLR (PRICE DROP)

Will Ship To: CONUS

{SOLD} Hello. I got these new from MrSpeakers.com on 12.27.2014, so they’re “like new”. What’s more, because I'm the first owner and they’ve been very carefully used in a smoke and pet free home, they’re minty. This is what you get: The Alpha Dogs themselves, obviously, with the decorative stand, the care kit, the velvet carrying pouch, two sets of doggy treats, and two 6’ cables: One is terminated in a 1/4” plug, the other in a 4-pin XLR. In other words, everything that's included by MrSpeakers together with an extra cable. The balanced cable cost $89.99. Since the headphones themselves cost $599, that's roughly $689 spent, shipping notwithstanding.

 

The headphones came with (I think) two tuning dots installed in each cup, which I haven't altered. Nor have I touched the bass-tuning port. So everything is set to factory. The warranty is still intact. My reason for selling is simple: I want to fund a portable setup, probably an ATH-MSR7 + a yet to be determined DAC/amp. 

 

Pricing & shipping. My price is 450USD x 1.037 (for PP fees), or 466.66USD out the door. I'll take care of shipping. I like this headphone and am selling it in order to try something new, not in order to keep someone from breaking my legs. In other words, I don’t need the money. EDIT: I've dropped because I've determined my last price wasn't competitive. Given that the headphones are only roughly three months old and are in pristine condition, and given that the two cables should cover one's needs, this strikes me as a fair price.

 

Not going to do PP gift: I insist on buyer protection because that's what good buyers want. And I want good buyers who aren't reckless with their money. Not going to suffer lowballers. The item will ship in its original box. I said I'll ship to CONUS only: That means I won't ship outside the continental United States, so please don’t ask me to. I’ll just feel like an ******* and you still won’t get the headphones. My preference is to deal with experienced Head-Fiers who have positive feedback on this site.

 

My procedure for sales. If you avow interest, I’ll ask you for your zip code in order to tally up shipping costs. Costs will include insurance. I'll require a signature for delivery. After all of that is figured out, I'll send you the total amount and ask you for your PayPal address. Once I have that, I’ll send you an invoice on PayPal requesting payment. Then, once you pay the invoice, I’ll ship it out and PM/email you the tracking number. It’s as simple as that. But this way, we’re both protected. Oh, and please be able to buy when you contact me – that is, please don't say e.g. "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a headphone today". I'm able to sell when you contact me, so it's only fair. 

 

Once you receive the item, I'll leave feedback. The character of the feedback depends obviously on the character of the transaction. However, it would be rare that I actually make it to the feedback stage without that feedback being positive. I wait until after you receive the item in part so that you don't feel pressured to leave me (positive) feedback before you get what you paid for.

 

Terms of sales. Because I'm not a retailer, I'm not selling this item in order to make a profit and/or to keep a business going. That means I can't really afford to sell on the condition that the customer has final approval. In other words, all sales are final.

 

 

[It's a bad time to sell Alpha Dogs, it seems, as there are like eight listings currently.]
