Hiya everyone, doing yet another change of headphones. Wanting to sell my Ultrasone PROline 750. I want to get rid of them because lately I've been missing mid-centric sound. These have pretty good mids, considering the nature of their sound, but aren't quite up to the level I need. I have been really missing my Sony MDR-CD900STs, so I'm selling these to fund a purchase of those. (Though, if you have a pair you'd like to trade for these, that would be entirely acceptable.)
 
Being as these are the PROline version, they don't come with the case, but they do include the box, the pack-in CD, and I will include a 1/8" adapter for them. These also only include one pair of pads, because I think the previous owner must have thrown the other pair away or something. Headphones are in very good condition, as they have been babied by me, and by the previous owner. No cracks, no chips, and only very, very minor scratches on the gray parts of the ear cups. EDIT: In the last week or so the right side started cutting out. Found out that part of the wire that runs between the cups got a little kinked and worn. They work fine if the wire is held in the right position by tape or something, but it definitely needs to be replaced. I don't have the know-how or equipment to fix it myself, but I imagine it's a fairly simple fix for someone WITH those things.
 
As usual with me, will only ship CONUS, but I will cover the shipping. (USPS Priority Mail)
 
Not sure what I can expect to get for them in their current condition, so send me any offers. They are my primary headphone, so I'd like to get enough to buy another like-quality pair.

Pictures added. As I mentioned, the scratches on the cup are very faint, as you can see in the third picture. From what I see looking at them, those two little scratches are the only ones on the 'phones. (The other cup is immaculate.)

Back up. As mentioned in the OP, the wire running from the left to right cup got damaged.

If anyone has a pair of stock Fostex T50RPs they'd be willing to trade, it's a headphones I'm interested in.

I probably wouldn't turn down a pair of AKG K271s if someone offered them.

If someone has a headphone in the same vein, sound-wise, as the T50RPs and K271s that's a little higher price bracket, I might be able to add money on top of the trade.
 
Also: I'd take $60 for these. At the moment I've got them taped just right so as to work properly without cutting out, but of course it's only a temp fix. With a little bit of elbow grease, they are a bargain at that price!
