{SOLD} Used HE-560 in excellent condition with 1/4" stock cable and braided OCC 4-pin XLR cable + XLR to 1/4" adapter, as well as 4 sets of pads

Will Ship To: CONUS

Hello. {SOLD} I got this HE-560 new from Razordogaudio.com (an authorized HiFiMAN reseller) on 2.26.2015, so it’s right around one month old as of this listing (3.27.2015). Used very lightly – perhaps 50 hours maximum – and very carefully in a smoke and pet free home. That means the headphone is minty. The only difference from stock is that I’ve equipped the pre-production Focus A Pads ($39 from the HiFiMAN site). These pads are supposed positively to affect the frequency response.
 

In brief, my reason for selling is this: The treble is a bit too hot for me. I’m not interested in modding the headphone; and I’m enough in love with my upstream gear not to screw with that part of the equation. The easiest thing is to replace the HE-560 with a base model closer to my ideal signature – probably something like the PM-1.
 

As you can tell from the photos, this listing includes the HE-560 (obvs), the stock ¼” cable, an OCC 4pin-XLR cable with a ¼” adapter ($149 from the HiFiMAN site), a carrying pouch, and the decorative headphone box. The headphone stand isn’t included. Note the following. The (p)leather and velour pads are leftovers from my HE-500. While the (p)leather pads have a plastic baffle, the velour pads do not; if you want to use the velour pads, you’ll have to transfer the baffle to them. I wish it were otherwise, but I’m including these pads as bonus anyway. I should note that I won't want to split this package up: I have no use for HiFiMAN cables and pads if I sell the headphone. 
 

Pricing & shipping. My price is 649USD x 1.037 (for PP fees), or 673USD out the door. I'll take care of shipping. Total MSRP, excluding the leftover HE-500 pads, is $899 for the headphone, $149 for the OCC cable, and $39 for the Focus A Pads, or $1087.
 

I don't hate this headphone; it's resolution and speed aren't matched by my LCD-2.2. I'm 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. This means the price is firm. Item will ship in its original packaging.
 

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.
