    Unexpected expenses came up so unfortunately deciding to finally let these go.

    Asking for $875 $800 total. I have around $1,200 invested in them. I will cover priority mail insured shipping within the US.

    About 2 months ago I paid ZMF to replace the paint peeling mag chassis with a brand new aluminum chassis. (I prefer aluminum for it's durability and feel over mag anyways). They also buffed the wood back to a nice shine and ensured they sounded perfect with no issues.

    I also paid to have a brand new crescent strap installed. I put in $160 in repairs and another $65 for the new crescent strap.

    This set is now in, I can comfortably say, 9 out of 10 condition.

    Includes:
    -African Blackwood Aeolus with black aluminum chassis and steel rods and grills, and leather crescent strap.
    -Stock Aeolus leather head strap in excellent condition.
    -5ft 3.5 mm ZMF OFC Cable.
    -Solid and Radial Titan mesh (solid installed and preferred)
    -2 pairs of Aeolus Perf Leather pads. One set in very good condition and one with some peeling on edges of attachment ring.
    -Owners card, pelican case, and new humidity pack

    PM for more photos, questions or to purchase.

    This is an incredible deal for someone! I don’t need these at all, but I’m seriously tempted.

    I paid $850 for my sapele Aeolus without any extras and don’t regret it (and still regularly listen to them). Exotic wood plus crescent strap plus bonus mesh? I wish I could trade. Great warmer toned headphones.

    African Blackwood is also know as Mpingo.
    Here is a documentary about it.
