All original inclusions: Box, manuals, outer box, etc. Burn in use only so far. They've stayed in the box for a while, I've let them out to burn them in properly with an amp that should be matched to them but I'm still not happy.
In extremely good condition. I did bash my head against it once (don't ask
) but there's no damage and as far as I can see even no cosmetics to speak of.
Complete with odd smell from the presentation box paper which I've not been able to get rid of. It does go away from the phones after you let them out of the box for a while.

£85.

Express tracked shipping to the US is horrendously expensive if I'm reading Parcelforce's charts right: £40 for a 1.5Kg package. There are cheaper services, the International Signed For being about £20.
That said, would generally prefer UK buyer, especially someone who lives in London, mainly because I'm lazy

Hi,
I'm just wondering why do u sell the Hd-600? I'm the A100ti owner, and just want to know your reason. By the way, what is the price in U.S. dollars?

Hi to all who PM'd. I've weighed it. The boxed package (minus any further protection for shipping) is a smidgen under 1.5kg just by itself. Add another 800g or so for adequate shipping protection and... It's over 2Kg, which means I'll have to go for the ParcelForce services anyway.

Assuming 2.5Kg as the 'safe' weight,
International Standard Service to USA for 2.5Kg is £26.80 ($40).
International Standard Service to Far East for 2.5Kg is £31.80 ($48)
Both of these to my knowledge aren't tracked. Double the price for tracked express.

So that's £111.80 ($167) shipped to the US and £116.80 ($175) shipped to the Far East.

(All dollar prices calculated at $1.5/£1 and are not accurate.)


Purk, I just don't like it that much compared to the W100 or the A100Ti... or even the A900. I can't put a finger on it, maybe it's the comfort, maybe becuase it's open, maybe because to me it sounds a bit flat, who knows.

Of course, where would my sales pitches be without another haiku:

Looks marbly like stone
Sounds good for non-Japanese

Waiting for new ears.

I say, those ParcelForce fellows do take quite a chunk. If it weren't for that, the total price would be heavenly. Still, at $167, someone can get a great deal.

I'm also open to headphone-related trades. Amps, similar headphones etc, Paypal adjustment either way.

£85 eh?

Well... if the seventh of December sounds good for a mini-meet... I think I may take those off of your hands...

Ciao
