    Default Antares Ear Bonnet - How much should I sell it for?

    I have a brand new Antares ear bonnet that has never been used. I have no use for it and was thinking about selling it. Problem is is that I cant find one anywhere for sale and Antares doesnt have them listed on their website. Any idea what these cost or what I should sell it for?

    Are you sure? They used to be listed on Antares' website, I think for about $75 or $80 IIRC.

    My guess is that the price is probably in the neighborhood of what the custom Mattes ear bonnets are.

    Take 20 percent off what you paid for it and take offers down to 60 percent of what you paid for it. The market isn't huge for used ear bonnets, eBay may be a good choice. If its pretty and the price was right I would buy it from you.

    Thanks guys!
    Someone gave it to me, so I have no idea what it originally cost which is why I am trying to figure out what they sell for.

    Please, for the love of God, just don't send it back to SmartPak.

    Don't know anyone that bought one but they were "gifted" at a local jump clinic where Antares set up a very nice booth ...

    I bought one this summer from a dealer and as I recall it was like $45 or $50. I remember being shocked at how low the price was considering.

    Is it woven of gold or something? Aside from the cache of the Antares logo-- why would a non-custom earnet need to cost much more than that?

    It got locked. OP changed the title, making it a little difficult to find...
