Excellent condition closed back audiophile headphones with low hours usage.

Stock pads have been replaced by a new set of (W5000?) pads which are genuine leather not artificial. The originals are renowned for deteriorating and shedding thousands of small leatherette particles everywhere and get hot and sweaty, so real leather is an important upgrade.

EDIT: one or two enquiries have asked if the replacement pads are leatherette or real leather. Let me reassure buyers, these new pads are real 100% leather, as fitted to the top of the range models. They came from Japan and were (I think?!#) about £100 for the pair. The difference in on-ear performance is miles better than the leatherette especially for extended listening.

These have also just been recabled by the well-regarded Carl Baxter at "Fixmyheadphones" for £95, really together with the newer pads, these are actually better than original spec.

The only reason I am selling these is because I’ve re-bought an old pair of Denon’s which I had ten years ago, and have missed ever-since. I can’t justify having two sets of first-class premium ‘cans.’ These Audio Technicas are however, awesome!

Any questions, do email me. Cheers.DSCF9984.JPGDSCF9985.JPGDSCF9986.JPGDSCF9987.JPGDSCF9988.JPGDSCF9989.JPGDSCF9990.JPGDSCF9991.JPGDSCF9992.JPGDSCF9993.JPGDSCF9994.JPG
