AKG Y55 Closed DJ On-Ears for $50 w/free S&H

A previous incarnation of these (K61X on-ear series) had build quality issues, but judging by the 20+ customer reviews at Amazon, it looks like they may have fixed them with this version, and they now have a detachable cable instead. They are on the compact side of things (so big head beware) and on the tastefully-bassy side of things (if they carry over the sound signature from the K61X on-ear series).

“It” refers to the red color scheme of the AKG Y55 DJ-branded closed-back over-ears, on sale for $50 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual.

This is a nice condition for used items, it’s best used condition, and they come in original packaging, and there is no mention of damaged packaging or cosmetic imperfections. However, keep in mind that listings may not be complete or totally accurate, so there’s always a YMMV component to used purchases. I’m saying this for perfectionists 🙂

Used Technics RP-DJ-1210 DJ headphones for $51

The new condition Technics RP-DJ-1210 headphones go for $100+ in new condition, but if you are comfortable with used, you can get them “Used – Acceptable” condition (major cosmetic damages, repackaged, still usable) for $51 with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual.

Given the description, this is a higher risk purchase, thus the lower price. If you hate returns, you may want to avoid it as the risk is higher of deal-killer issues with this type of a description. On the other hand, the description may be exaggerated, so they may end up a good deal. As they say, luck favors the bold (And the bald).
