This ATH-W1000 is in outstanding condition. No scratches, marks, or damage. Any spots you see in the photos are from dust. The original pleather ear pads were changed to the superior all-leather pads made for the earlier W2002 model, and the "phatpad" modification has been done, too, which makes the headphones more comfortable and improves the soundstage. The phatpad mod is a thin tube of dive-quality latex rubber that's been cut to length, with the ends glued together, and then silicone tape was put over the joint. The tube is removable by hand without needing to take the pads off (it is not secured in place by anything other than the pad itself). The leather pads are in excellent condition (barely used) and I have two extra sets of unused leather pads. No fraying or pulls on the fabric-wrapped cord.
$300 for the W1000 alone, $400 for the W1000 and the two pairs of spare pads (which retail for $99.99 a pair). I would prefer to sell the headphones and pads together, but if I sell the headphones without the extra pads I will sell the pads afterwards. The pairs of pads will be sold for $75 a pair if not included with the headphones; because the pads are fragile and can be damaged when installing them, sale of the pads is irrevocably final. I do not have the original box for the headphones. Shipped via UPS ground in the USA (not shipping outside the USA).
