GRADO HP1000 Classic Signature Headphones-VG/Exe.-NR - eBay (item 280265549460 end time Sep-10-08 19:50:36 PDT)

I was watching this auction quite closely, it had a starting price of $699. I even asked a question about the cable..

Only to found out about only a day after the auction was posted, that the seller did a private buy-it-now at $999.. DAMN IT, these kind of inquiries usually don't work so I didn't bother asking. I guess the seller needed the money fast but I bet that he would have gotten like $1300-1500 if he had let the auction up until the end. Oh well, what a bummer.

Sorry but I really had to share my anger somewhere.

wow those pads look disgusting, I'd be worried about bits of the pads that may have gone through the mesh though.

It doesn't even look like there is a mesh on them?

I was watching your IC but don't like them and always wait to see an FS price, then bam, sold!

Anyway this is just how the market works, I don't actually feel bad at all, and would have done the same as you did, it's the right thing to do, I just see a similarity.

I've set snipes on items for, say $1000, and the auction ends early with a BIN of $600, so never got my chance, and the seller never got $1000. Can't dwell on it, plenty 'phones in the sea.

Horrible looking pads indeed!
Hopefully the drivers have taken no damage, and hence someone got a pretty nice deal.
