Hi Friends,

Since its now officially up for grabs, I've opened a new thread.

This is for a pair of AKG K1000's serial number 05298. It comes with the black wooden box, manual, service manual, brochure, basically all paperwork it came with. Also included is the original XLR-4-wires cable which is used to connect these to a power amp.
The headphones are in quite good condition, but there are two things worth mentioning. The cable was shortened by 0.5meter (1.5ft) by the previous owner, but its still 2meter (6ft) long, and it is the original AKG cable.
Second thing worth mentioning is that there is about 2-3cm where the outer level (there are two of them) of the isolation has come off, but it can be easily covered, and its cosmetic only. I've covered it about a year ago and had no problem with it since (look at the pictures).
Other than that they are in good condition. The pads are showing some wear as they should at their age, but are in very nice shape and hold very well. The grills are in brand new condition with no signs of scratches/dents/wear.

Just look at the pictures:
a. The paperwork (manual, service manual, and some other stuff) + the cable that is used to connect these to a power amp:

b. The part of the cable where the one of the two layers of outer isolation came off (I covered it about a year ago, and its barely seen):

c. A front picture of the pads, as you can see they are in a nice shape:

d. Serial number 05298:

e. The headphones resting inside the black wooden box:

As for trades, I'll be looking for a pair of W100/W5000/W11JPN/other W headphones (except for the W10) + cash depending on the headphones and condition.
I will also be willing to trade for a Wii (with 2 remote's) + cash.

For a direct sale, I'll be looking for $old.
Shipping will be made using EMS which takes 4-5 days to most countries, and offers tracking over the internet.

Thanks for watching.

Forgot to mention, I would also consider trades for higher-end Denon and the AD2000.

OK,

how about that:
$old + shipping with EMS, I'll cover PP fees. Which means is about 1050$ shipped anywhere in the world insured with tracking.

And beyond....

So, last price drop...
I've got some offers, but none that I've really liked. So I guess the best chance would be a straight sale. Since I've got some expanses coming on my stereo gear this one would have to go a little faster. So, here's the deal:
$old shipped worldwide.

Obviously shipping would still be with EMS which is very fast and offer web-tracking.
