Hi guys,
 
I'm looking for a mint pair of Hifiman HE-500 with full box and accessories. Please PM me with your offers. Thanks
 
Cheers,
 
P/s: In case if you want to trade, I have a pair of HE-400 (sold), a pair of Westone 4s, and an RSA Protector to trade. I will add up some cash, of course.
 
--------------------------
Update: Decided to buy a brand new pair. Thank you guys for your offers.

If you have not already done so the Velour pads for the HE-500 improve upon the HE-400's sound.  You may want to try that before you do the trade / sale.  There is an issue with how the pads on the HE-400 seal and their interaction with sound reproduction that many of us find negative.  Replacing the pads with the HE-500 velour pads makes a big difference.

I tried both type of pads and don't really like how the HE400s sound :D
So, are you going to sell your HE-400 after you get the HE-500 (assuming you don't trade your HE-400 + cash for the HE-500, of course)? I am asking because I was about to buy a new HE-400, but I can wait if I am assured a good deal is coming up soon. :D

Hey, if the deal with bsingh doesn't work out, I'd be interested in buying those HE-400s off you as well haha
