So i constructed a list of average used headphones prices. This should be useful for those just entering the used gear market. Let me know if i have anything wrong on the list.
 
Prices do not include shipping. Prices in US Dollar and are based on excellent condition of the equipment.

They are based on several factors. MSRP, market demand (whether they have been discontinued and/or in high demand), average second-hand prices on this forum, and average second-hand prices on Ebay.

Where are you getting your prices? Just curious.



PS. I'm working on a charted version that will examine the price trend since the headphone has been released (from new to use).

The AD700 is not $100 used. It is $90 new. Also the Grados (if they are the "i" model) need to be corrected about $20 north. And it would be great if I could find Beyerdynamics for those prices!
 
But still this is a great list. Good job.

SR60i - $60
SR80i - $75
SR125i - $110
SR225i - $150
SR325i - $200
SR325is - $225
RS2i - $375
RS1i - $490
GS1000i - $700
 
Generally, I find that used prices for the most recent Grado models are about 75% of their original MSRP, to a certain extent. The extremes of the lineup (RS1, GS1000) don't seem to follow this rule.
