    Looking for a decent pair of headphones to replace my DBA-02s which dropped out of my bag on the way back from the library :( I'm thinking headphones would be more noticeable if missing...

    I'm a new member here, so PM has not been enabled (yet) although I do have a account on Head-Fi for a while now.

    Budget is about 50-100 quid, looking for a similar sound sig to the DBA-02s. A punchy bass and good mids/highs. Slightly interested in a pair of Grados if anyone has one, as my brother has a pair of SR-80s

    Location: Dundee, Scotland

    Hi Lee,

    Thanks for the offer, but £50 more is just stretching out my budget too far it seems >_< The Sony MA900 sound signature from what I can gather does seem to be what I'd like though... oh well.

    Hi,

    If you’re still looking/interested I have a pair of mint Grado SR80i’s approximately 3 years old which I might be thinking of selling.

    Regards,

    Malc.

    Hi Malc, what price are you looking at?
    Snmichaels, thanks for the offer, will consider if Malc doesn't reply.
    Dubiousbobcat, sorry but i'm not interested in the monster turbines. Thanks for the offer though.

    Regards,
    Cow

    Hi Malc, that seems reasonable especially if its in mint condition. Will it come with anything else e.g adapters or such. Just curious, but almost a done deal.

    Hi again,

    They would come with the 1/4” adaptor but sadly not the original box.

    They’ve hardly had any use at all over the past two years and not a great deal more before that. I’m not a natural headphone lover and they were only bought to placate the neighbours for my sometime late night listening. I bought a pair of K702’s a year later which I’ve almost exclusively used since, which I just love with movies!

    Malc.

    Hi Malc,

    Sounds good, I'm not a stickler for packaging and all that anyway, as long as its in good condition! Nice choice, I would buy a pair of K702s if I could afford that dough, can't imagine the sound quality on those sweet cans. I'm willing to go ahead with the deal. Mind I ask if you have any pictures anyway, just to confirm.

    Bit of a noob here, so i'm not sure what the protocol is for dealing in the AV forums. payment methods, details exchange, etc?

    Regards,
    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    Pix not a problem but bear with me as I’ll have to take some for you later today.

    Needless to say they will be properly and securely packaged.

    All the best,

    Malc.

    Hi Neil,

    Okay, well just finished the pix off and hope they’re okay for you (probably not the best camera phone in the world, and I don’t really know how to use it properly either!)

    Just to note that they are the “i” model - when Grado updated the original SR80’s they did not put the “i” designation on the can for some reason.

    Malc.

    Do you want to confirm payment details and postage?
