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.
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.
