Selling a pair of (essentially) new Fostex TR-X00 Ebony Headphones. This is like the TH-X00 variant but with detachable cables so you can switch out to third-party / custom cables -- and/or make it easier for transport. Used a total of three times with less than three total hours on them. I've stored it on a headphone stand when not in use. Adult used in a smoke-free, pet-free home.

They are amazing and lives up to the hype in all the reviews on YouTube, etc. Buttery smooth, full of body, amazing clarity and very clear, TIGHT bass. One of the top YouTube reviewers, Joshua Valour, calls them "The New Bass Kings" and says they are even better than the Focal Stellia (which are $3,000 headphones) --
So why am I selling them?

I fell in love with the sound signature of Fostex X00 headphones. I started with the mahogany variant. Loved it, so I thought I'd try the rest of them. I eventually got two of the Ebony variant and then the Purpleheart variant. After listening to all three of them, I prefer the mid-bass on the Mahoganies as they lend themselves a bit better to rock/alt rock that I listen to -- and I already have two pairs of mahogany versions (amongst other closed back headphones), so I need to start selling some. The Ebony / TR-X00 EB version is widely considered to be the best all-around headphone with better clarity, better controlled bass, and is more of a true audiophile headphone that is considered "great for all genres" whereas the mahogany version has a sweet spot that I fall into.

I'm not dying to sell these... They are like a unicorn... especially in this new / like new condition. They are sold out and no longer make these. The cups are amazing and have great sheen. Outside of a tiny scratch visible in the second photo, there is no scuffs, scratches, bubbles, or damage. If you see anything that otherwise looks like one, it's a reflection while I was taking the photo(s). The edges of the wood cups where they mount to the earpads are flawless.

The pads are soft and comfortable as is the headband. It comes with everything -- the original box and cardboard insert. Some paperwork. The black carrying bag, etc..

These are cross posted across E-bay, Head-Fi, AudioMart, etc. I don't expect these to last long. I have flawless E-bay feedback at 1,000 and counting -- including the sale of some recent headphones and headphone amplifiers. I also have feedback here on Head-Fi. You'll also notice that I ship FAST -- sometimes same day, worst-case next business day. I also ship with insurance and tracking via priority mail.

Insurance and PP fees are on me. Shipping is on you. I'm happy to provide an estimate. The outer box is 7 x 11 x 12 and the total package weighs 2 lbs. 10 oz..

If you're local, you're more than welcome to demo before buying. You won't be disappointed.
