I've got the following two items that I would like to trade in a lot.  The first of these is a:
 
Pioneer SE-MJ591.  I've put about maybe about 120-160 hours on them so you can consider them adequately burned-in, but they're still in excellent shape.  They were always (and I mean ALWAYS) stored within their case whenever they were not being listened to.  In addition, I've got the original box and all the materials that it came with.  Just about the only blemish is a slight tear in the box from me being too excited to open it properly.
 
The second item would be your choice of either a:
 
Sennheiser HD 228.  This was purchased as part of a lot from a fellow Head-Fier.  All I originally insisted upon was working condition - and that's exactly what I got.  As a result, there are a few nicks and scratches.  In addition, it was recabled with an Audio-Techinca ArtLink Titan cable (a little short at only 31 inches) and a Neutrik 3.5mm terminator.  It works just fine, but it obviously doesn't include any accessories or original packaging.
 
or a:
 
Sennheiser HD 218i.  This was also acquired from the aforementioned fellow Head-Fier.  It is in much better condition with little-to-no blemishes.  Furthermore, the iControls work fine as far as I can tell.  However, it likewise does not come with any accessories or original packaging.
 
You can pick either the HD 228 or the HD 218i - whichever you like better.  I would like to trade those two items for the following from you:
 
Ultrasone ProLine 650.  I could care less about the original outer packaging, but would like the inner folding box, both cables, and demo CD.  The guide would be a big plus.  Hoping for good-fine condition, but it's okay if the inner folding box it a bit ratty.
A partially-modded Fostex T50RP, where the mods shall include innershell damping, cotton and white tape on the drivers.  Original pads are fine as I do not require the Shure pads at this time.
 
So, that's about it I guess.  It's often been said that Head-Fi classifieds are just the place to find exceedingly rare items - or in this case a rare combination of items.  Will the fates prove me wrong, or can someone answer this call?
 
Though I am in California, I welcome trades with Canadians.  Pics are available upon request.

Since the trader feedback form only allows me 255 characters, I've decided to post my full trader feedback comments regarding Beagle here in this post.  Suck it Huddler!  I have defeated your pitiful attempt to to curb my First Amendment rights!
 
THE FOLLOWING CONSTITUTES THE TRADER FEEDBACK COMMENTS THAT I AM LEAVING FOR BEAGLE (THE OTHER PARTY IN THIS TRADE):
 
This being my first trade, I didn't know exactly what to expect.  TBH, I was just happy that I found someone - anyone - that had the rare combination of things I wanted.  And someone who was willing to take the odd collection of crap I wanted to off-load.

  And I must confess, it all went pretty smoothly.

  In fact, I have but one complaint...

Dude kept trying to make me happy!  What? 
eek.gif
  He kept trying to offer me more stuff than I wanted while asking for nothing in return.

  He used expedited shipping so that I'd get my stuff faster.

  And he kept contacting me to make sure I was thoroughly happy.

  YEAH, I'M HAPPY BRO!  WHY, DO I &#@%!$ LOOK LIKE I'M UNHAPPY?!?!

In the end, I do appreciate the thought, but DAYAM!  Look mate, If you're one of those the-world-is-full-of-sunshine optimistic freaks - and you're looking for a smooth and happy transaction (with quality goods as described and super-fast shipping) - then this Beagle guy is your dude!  Seriously, you're gonna cry because you're so happy.
 
But I'm a cynic, and I expect to get bent and ripped a new one.  This positive experience makes me want to re-evaluate my world view - and I'm just not sure how I feel about that.

My transaction with warrenpchi was not only smooth and a total success, it was awesomely entertaining as well! warrenpchi has a great sense of humour and threw out every description possibility of expectation regarding the items he had for trade. It was FUN!
 
AFA offering stuff, I have a custom Grado I'd like to send to warrenpchi....if he wants it

Good old Beagle, good one on you for showing our southern neighbors Canuck style hospitality. I'm guessing you must be a Maple Leafs fan and hate the Habs. Double points go your way for that.

And for anyone lusting after said custom Grado, don't bother.  It's here with me now.
