CeX Headphones Bargains

23
Found 7th Oct 2012
I was looking for a good pair of headphones and decided to see what CeX had. I was very surprised by the price, even though they are second-hand, some of them are still a fraction of the price of used pairs on sites like ebay/amazon. The pair of Sennheisers I got were in excellent condition and they all come with a years warranty. Here are a few notable examples from the site:

Sennheiser HD-595 - £62
uk.webuy.com/pro…595

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II - £78
uk.webuy.com/pro…IIA

AKG K 450 - £35
uk.webuy.com/pro…001

Stock is pretty low but even if it isn't in your local store, a store transfer may be possible or you can order it online. It may be quite annoying going through the entire list, but if you already have a few models in mind, you may find a hidden gem here.

Secondhand headphones....no way...do you buy second hand underwear?
Just the thought of someone elses greasy lugs being attatched to these before using them myself - eugh. Especially considering the quality of the clientele I see in the store,
mmmm the thought of sharing sweat and someone else's earwax.... Must be the next oddity listing to appear on ebay along with those used chav scally 'gay interest' trainers and undies

So I'm assuming you guys have never tested out a pair of headphones in shops? If you are really worried then you could always buy replacement pads which should still work out far cheaper than buying new.

The AKG prices are close to some deals you can find on Amazon and buying legit replacement pads you may as well buy new with a warranty. Demoing in store for a few brief minutes is one thing but generating sweat is another. Knock yourself out if you like the bacteria and sweat of a window licking tramp but I am out!
You can smell CEX on games and dvd's etc, god knows why anyone would buy anything that you wear from that hovel.

Well people generally exercise with earphones so I suppose sweating can be an issue with them, but they can be cleaned and their tips replaced with little problems. As for full-size headphones, who actually wears them whilst exercising? Taking the HD-595s as an example, if you understand anything about their design then you'll realise that they are simply not suitable for wearing outside let alone running in them and generating sweat. They can be cleaned with alcohol wipes and the pads can be replaced so I don't really see the problem But fair enough, if you're worried about hygiene then I doubt you'll be comfortable wearing them even if they are cleaned.

And there's my least favourite phrase, especially when it's used on my deals

For all you who are complaining about this "second hand" nonsense, cex DO NOT buy second hand headphones, it comes under their health and safety policy, ive been shopping at CEX since they opened and ive never seen an open pair of headphones sold or bought, so enjoy the bargains and know that they are all sealed!

The MATH bit was sarcasm after the YOU GUYS comment from charles w, if you looked past the end of your nose. I too hate Americanisms. It's a terrible deal. But you are still an idjit.
Or get a pair of AKG 450 brand new delivered from amazon courtesy of Superfi for £43 BRAND NEW with warranty

Hmmmm I think I'd rather pay the extra £8 and get them delivered to my door.

I concur, never bought a second hand pair of earphones from CEX - they've all been sealed. Got a spectacular pair of Klipsch X10i for £60.00 sealed - bargain

Hmm, my pair of Sennheiser 595s came unsealed which was why I thought everything was second-hand, though maybe that's only on some headphones?

Spoke to CEX - only the in-ear headphones are sold brand new, the over ear or on ear can be second hand - Yuurgh!
