***These were SOLD on Wednesday. Many thanks to everyone who inquired. -MCB***

I've had these for about a year-and-a-half, but I've still got too many other pairs that I simply gravitate to on impulse. The Beyers, the AKG 501, and the Senn 650 just get used more.

Nonetheless, these are justifiably lauded as superb all-around headphones, and I'd use them daily if I were still doing long commutes by train. They are in very fine condition: mechanically flawless and with no cosmetic defects that I can detect. The exception might be that the original cord has indeed gotten curly with time. I believe that I've put fewer than 40 hours on them.

The sale is for the AH-D2000 cans, including the 1/8" adapter. I moved house in December and no longer have the original box and instructions. The price includes shipping within the CONUSA and Paypal fees. I will ship outside the country, but only if purchaser agrees to a shipping method that includes insurance and delivery signature. This is typically expensive.

Note: Ask me if you'd like to do a combined deal for the Denon headphones and the Auzentech X-Fi sound card that I am also selling.

A NICE WORD of EXPLANATION for potential INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:

Guesstimation of international postal rates _before_ a sale is always a pain. I am very pleased to check multiple shippers for the best pricing _after_ a buyer has committed to a purchase. Otherwise, I spend too much time researching shipping options, only to be told that the potential buyer isn't interested if shipping is "that expensive."

I encourage you to check USPS.com, UPS.com, and Fedex.com yourself to get a sense of what the typical shipping rates are. Be aware that with US Mail service, I cannot get insurance if I don't send theackage by a shipping method that is at least as fast as international priority post. US Post simply won't insure a package sent by airmail.

Check the flat-rate costs offered by the principal shippers. The final cost is usually cheaper if I hand-pack the item in a smaller box. Nonetheless, that is your base estimation.

I have to insist on insurance for international packages, I'm afraid. Less than a year ago, the classic Exposure amp that I had listed on Headfi was shipped and then **Lost** by Fedex. It had tracking and was insured--fortunately for me, or I would have been ?X!**ed. The final destination was New York City, and after returning the buyer's money and waiting two months for my own refund, I didn't make a penny, and was out for the cost of all the preparation and anxiety and hassle.

Quite true - and, on the mark.  I recently did some research to ship a 4 Lb. package to South Africa.  FedEx and UPS were totally cost prohibitive - more than $300.00.  While, the USPS using Express mail along with the insurance costs ran only about $70.00.  Also, I think International buyers should also respect the fact that we need to fill out customs forms in order for the package to even leave the post office.  Some might even ask us to "fudge" the value a bit, so they pay a lower import tariff.  However, it does seem "odd" that the package is insured for $400.00, but the value claimed on the customs' paperwork is just $75.00.
 
Good luck with your sale.
