I'm selling these great headphones in almost mint condition. I liberated them from a Hifi-Store. They've never been used except sometimes auditioned in the store (I did, too. They sound divine
).

Impressions from a meet: Jan Meier liked them (best Grado he heard), saint.panda said "best details among all headphones tested. Very good highs and midrange. Not enough bass which might be due to the bowl pads. These headphones are so fast and the attack is stunning. Nevertheless, they didn’t have enough soundstage for me." So even if they're HP3 (I still doubt it), they're very good ones :p
At this meet I put the bowl pads on them like they normally would have been. When I reversed them, I suddenly heard an increase in the lower end. It does make a difference!

They're equipped with the Ultra Wide Bandwidth Cable.
The dust on the pads you see on one of the pictures is just that.. dust.. that I wiped away after taking the pictures.
Yes, both screws are there and intact


I'll ship international, but I don't know yet how much the costs are for an overseas shipment.

[size=medium]!! SOLD !![/size]
Thanks everyone!

Of course, you can always pm me for different offers. I'd also trade for a nice PPA or Corda HA-1 MK2 + a little something


You can audition them at weekends if you're able to somehow get to Stuttgart/Germany and bring your own equipment with you.

Yeah, there was a HP3 on ebay a few days ago. They're not the same

You can easily see that on the lettering that those are different phones, the HP3s letters were a bit more intact.

So which are these - HP-2 or HP-3's (there should be a sticker on the side of the Grado box)?

Are those pads reversed bowls?

They came without box. However, the vendor told me (after I purchased them) that they were HP2s. I also emailed Grado and they told me the same. I guess Grado never equipped HP3s with the UWBW cable

Actually they did make the HP3s with the UWBW cable as I have a mint pair that has the UWBW cable,and I have the origional HP3 box.
But this doesn't mean yours is not a HP2.

For what price are you selling these?

Are you sure you wouldn't consider selling them to a buyer in the U.S.?

I'll consider selling them outside of europe when I see that there's not really a demand here.
Considering the circumstances, I won't wait for a highend price to pop up
so just PM me your offers.
