HE-5's were selling as low as $350 here when everybody jumped on the HE-500 bandwagon. 

if i am not mistaken that massive sales started even earlier..with the he5LE..and then in 2011 the he500 did the rest.. Those were the days to buy a he5 cheaply...

.if i am not mistaken i just saw a secondhand he5 (as new as its stated) for 675euros on ebay!! Ouch!!!
The seller must know about this thread! :wink: so i am sure he will sell it for that price to one of those desperate people who missed out on the stock Of he5's LFF still has. Especially when all the code-x's start coming free into the wild..being reviewed and listened to on meetings and talked about...and in so getting known by many :p Just imho ofcourse.

No it was the announcement of the new HE-500 that people started selling the HE-5's and HE-5LE's (now that you reminded me) for very cheap here, this was only about 1.5 years ago or so in late 2011.
 
The HE-5 was discontinued in favour of the HE-5LE because there were so many problems with wood cracking, more so than the Audeze LCD2's, the HE-5LE avoided wooden housing in total and used plastic instead.
