Beautiful Yamaha HP-50 (NOT 50S or 50A, this is the 50), in good condition, pads have lost a bit of the pleather, but they are still nice and plump and comfortable.

They have been recabled to approx. 1.5m Mogami Mini-quad Neglex, high quality cable. The recable job was done beautifully by Ludo, with cotton sleeving on the Y split area.
Terminated to a hefty Tasker 3.5mm plug (similar to Switchcraft).

The sound: These have amazing smooth, fast planar sound. The damping has been done by Ludo too. Everything about it is good, except for not having smashing bass like a very few HP-3's do (only two bass heavy HP-3's have been found).
See here, for a comparison I did some months ago against a Denon D2000.

This is VERY VERY rare, as far as I am aware I am the only person here with a HP-50, maybe there might be one other owner.

I am located in UK. Asking SOLD (that was quick!)shipped and paypaled. If you want recording shipping it will be a tad more.
Also possible trades, some interesting ortho's or such.
