Are Stellia not moving used much anymore? I can’t for the life of me figure out why I have such a good price on them and nothing.

I get the headband is faded but they sound sonically amazing still and it’s still under warranty until October. Am i missing something??
I feel like Focal's are a tough sell used. You can get them 'open box' for huge cuts at other places, and they randomly go for big sales new. I think your price is fair but the market for them for some reason isn't that great. I had to sell basically a brand new pair for a large cut.

Darn, well I was thinking about searching through the threads before when people treated their headband with leather protection and it all turned a uniform color.

I had a spot on mine, not as bad as yours, and treating it with the "COLOURLOCK Aniline Leather Cleaning and Care Kit" made it almost invisible.

For a while, I wanted to give the Focal Clear a try, but those headbands always look gross on used ones.

FWIW: But even if you did, one have ”developed” their own color....and that’s a sign of have being used.....Very difficult. When I buy, I am so naive, that I don’t think about if I can sell....And for sure it doesn’t always work out the way I wished...However, I still love my tainted Stellia’s

I got these covers from eBay. They're comfortable.

I feel the black cover would suite the Clear MGs more and browns on the Stellias. Looks nice regardless tho.

I had my Stellias for almost 8 months now and there's been no change in the colour of the Headband, looks completely new. The only change in leather on mine are the earpads, those have darkened. I am not sure what causes some people's leather to change more than others, I haven't used any leather conditioner or treated with anything special.

I've got a pretty greasy scalp, and I haven't managed to affect the top of the headband after a some months of use. The cups are definitely darkening, from the bottom up. I'd rather not use a cover if I can help it. Just keep your hands clean when you handle them, that's what I've done and its worked for me. rangerid, would love to hear these out of your setup, must sound fantastic.
