No no.

As in the perception of something listed at 600 is different to the perception of something listed at 300. I'm talking about specialized items by the way, not things everyone immediately knows the value of (like an iPhone or something)

At especially low values people start to think the item must have something wrong with it or be built out of cheap components. (Not saying yours is 'ledge, no harm relisting it higher I reckon)

I've got umpteen questions about why I was selling something so cheap yet no offers, In my eyes and going on fleabay prices what I was selling wasn't cheap, it was the going rate, just not the adverts listed rate.
I honestly think you are better over pricing items.

When it comes to things like adverts, people like to think they've talked you down on the price. They'd be much happier paying 400 if it was listed at 600 than paying full price at 300.

Sure its not a cab for an arcade aficionado but I would of thought someone would like it for 300
It's torture to those of us that would love it but don't have the space for it too.
