My family's coming to visit me. You know what this means. Yup, spring cleaning time, where all the expensive-looking toys go. In having to choose between owning four pairs of headphones or keeping one videogame console, I have to say quantity is going to be the deciding factor here.

So I'm thinking of selling my AudioTechnica AT-W100 brown beauties. They are:
1. five months old;
2. broken in for over 275 hours; and
3. in excellent condition with one 1mm tiny hole on each side of the woodpieces. The blemish was there when I first purchased them.

[edit: When I said "hole", I meant that it is a small (1mm diameter) circular spot on the wooden earcups. It does not all the way through the wood. In fact, it is less than 1mm deep.]

Pictures will follow shortly after my midterm is over.


Please pm** me your offers. And thank you for your attention.


**After the initial PM, further discussion and/or haggling will be done through email to save head-fi bandwidth.

Wow... my ineptitude surprises even me.
I'm really sorry you guys couldn't PM me earlier. To make up for that (or distract the wild horde of angry head-fiers), here's a link to my W100 pics.

It has just come into my attention that the spots on my headphones may mean that my headphones have failed QC, at least on the appearance level. For my part, I have demoed a store model (burned in for at least 100 hours) and I could not tell the difference between my headphones and that pair. I believe the W100 set I receive sounds lush and absorbing, but that is merely my opinion.

At this note, if anyone is willing to offer a sorta low price of $235 shipped, then it's done. If not, I am withdrawing the headphones from sale--at that loss point, it is more worthwhile to pass it on to my siblings.

Thank you for your attention.
