once i bought Oppo PM3 for 100$, it was in perfect condition, i though that was a great deal for that cute little planar
the other big hit was Etymotic ER4P for 50$ with everything, spare dampers, box ect
how is that headphone the first time I heard it's name was when I was researching drops lies they made a completely new and first to the punch BT planar, I hear it's more of a lightweight semi portable option but haven't researched the sound

it was warm and full sounding with amazing mids, a bit closed in and rolled of on top though

My dealer always hooks me up. Audeze LCD4 for $2600 1 1/2 years ago and just a couple weeks ago Hifiman HE1000SE for $2475. Both brand new shipped directly from Audeze and Hifiman.

Sennheiser IE800 for ca €300. In mint condition from e-earphone. My guess is that e-earphone put the used sticker on it to move stock without ruining the headline price.
Like new condition from e-earphone for used gear is pretty much a regular occurrence imo. My "used" Sundara were virtually indistinguishable from new that I picked up for JPY27,000.

I'm hypothesizing here, but I think there are a few reasons for this:
1. Japanese people tend to take immaculate care of their crap, including the packaging.
2. Many can't be arsed to deal with auction sites like Mercari or Yahoo.
3. There are so many people here who are in to high quality audio, and always want the latest and greatest, that the supply of used gear is generally quite good.

When a new product is released, it's really only a matter of a short period of time before it shows up at e-earphone or Fujiya Avic.

I mostly buy used so I consider almost everything I get a great deal but my best so far are:

Senn HD580 - $20 (dirty and flat pads but otherwise great)
Senn HD240 linear ii - $20 in great nick
Senn HD650 - $65 (broken cable, replaced for $12 + shipping from senn)

if we are to be completely truthful both the Z906 and Sundara were free. Given the deal by the sender due to my occupation in the legal field and the one most contested was the 6XX whose price I cannot calculate at this time due to Drop being pieces of crap who I am still in the process of shafting. I have a feeling if they knew what I was doing apart for literally calling @WillBright on his personal cellphone they would have acknowledged their lawbreaking and given to me free long ago.

How did you get a free Magni?
Guess deals don't get better than free.

I was pleasantly surprised to purchase a new-in-box B&W P7 on the website Poshmark of all places. I wasn't specifically in the market for a pair, but the $80.00 asking price was too good to pass up. For those who don't know, Poshmark is a preowned designer clothing website for women. They don't even have a category for electronics and such. But my websearch for P7s for sale brought it up and I'm glad it did.
