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 approximaa 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
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
Asking $1,650 which includes shipping and PayPal in the CONUS.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions and thanks for looking.
