I'm selling something from my personal collection. Didn't think I'd do it because you can no longer buy the temple pads for the K1000s, but I would like to test some of the newer upper headphones like the Focals. I ran these off of two 300B Paramount amps by Bottlehead. Regardless of what you run them off of, I would use the custom speaker tap adapter included as the output versus going directly into the 4-pin. The adapter cable is approximately 8' long and made out of nice Canare wire and uses high-quality techflex and a nice Neutrik jack. Just to add a little more about the temple pads. These are in 9/10 shape, which also indicates low hours. It is very rare to find a pair with this S/N that is in such a great condition. I'm not going to elaborate much on these. They're in very good condition and they sound unlike pretty much anything on the market. Furthermore, these are S/N 4313, which is a VERY rare S/N to find and some people feel that these have more bass than the 10XXX models. The last pair on eBay in the 4XXX sold for $3,206.95 USD. They should appreciate more than most you see with the wooden boxes. Unlike other headphones, these use no acoustically hard components, which enables the sound to interact more freely. What truly makes these one of a kind is the fact that they're equivalent to wearing speakers on your head (hence the speaker tap adapter cable they include). They require a lot of power, which is why we upgrade the adapter cable. The speaker enclosure uses a vibration-free diaphragm that is driven by a magnet system to minimize any interference or distortion and really provide a personalized listening experience. The speakers actually open and close using adjustable hinges and the hinges and locks both work very well. Many used ones you find, will have one or all of the locks not working. By opening and closing distance to your ear, the sound will change. Unfortunately, I don't have the manual, case, or original speaker extension adapter anymore, but I feel that both the custom speaker adapter cable and the case are much better than the original. The case is a brand new Pelican 1400 which we custom fit for the AKG K1000s. The case was purchased less than 1 month ago. There is a link to the manual on their website if you search for AKG K1000 on Google. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. $1,650 via PP. I will pay shipping in CONUS; Buyer pays PP fee or via F&F.
