This GS1000, serial #208, is in 9/10 condition. The entire time I've had it, I've worn the headphones with a layer of stockings covering the white earpiece fabric (to make sure no hair got inside). This means my ears have never actually touched the white fabric, which normally gets a yellow tan after some use (wax in the outer ear rubs off onto the fabric over time).

Sound-wise, this pair does not have the recessed midrange some people have had. They come with stock bagel pads, almost unused TTVJ flat pads and the original box and papers.

I will let them go for US$850 plus shipping (firm). I will ship worldwide. Shipping will be whichever method you prefer at the cost price. I use a non-CC Paypal account, so there will be no fees if you also use a non-CC account. If you use a CC account, I would ask that you eat the fee. If you live in Australia, bank transfer is accepted and preferred.

Note: the Black Dragon is 10 feet long.

I know that this is not a discussion thread, but man I just amazed that these baby's aren't sold yet. This is the best deal I have seen so far. Pretty damn pity that I do not have balanced amp. They goes like USD 1300 new.

I've offered to buy them at the requested price but the seller would like the sale finalized earlier than I can pay the full amount.

What a beautiful set of cans. Seems like a sacrilege calling them "headphones", these are a work of art. And they seem a steal at the price. Congrats to the lucky person who can afford them!
