Headphones are on that list of perfect gifts to get for your friend or special loved one. Why? Because they are a useful device and can be used anytime. When you’re cleaning, walking to work, studying, working, cooking etc. I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through college without my headphones. Pawn shops know how valuable headphones can be and are willing to offer good money to people interested in selling them. If you have headphones you’re interested in selling, here are a few tips to get the most money for your headphones.
Research The Market
Headphones can cost a few bucks to hundreds of dollars depending on type of headphones, brand, and condition. If you’re headphones cost between $8-$150, expect to get between $0-$80. Headphone’s between that price range maybe great headphones but are just not designed to last. If your headphones are between $150-$300, then expect to get around $80-$230; and just to remind you, these prices are based on if your headphones are relatively new and are in good condition.
Packaging and Accessories
If you have the original packaging and accessories that came with your headphones, I would strongly recommend you have those present with your headphones. Presentation is key when trying to sell your headphones. This shows pawn shops that your headphones were well taken care of when you were using them and are in great condition.
If your audio cord is damaged, then you can completely forget about getting money for your headphones. If your headphones are between $150-$300, then expect your offer price to be dramatically reduced because pawn shops won’t be able to tell how long your headphones will last because the damage to your audio cord reflects to how well you took care of your headphones while they were under your use.
