HD800 Pads are now made in Ireland. They are different sounding from German ones. It can be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes. Jan 7, 2023

        I guess the stage size takes a hit as well?

        Heh, had my order for new pads for my pair in since April of last year now I think. Hopefully if they are being made now in Ireland, that explains the long ass delay for me.

        @Emojiless Yes
        @netforce yeah, I think now because it's at Ireland the supply issues are solved! Probably the delay before was because it was made in Germany and was transitioning into Sonova thing

      okay-this is such a breakthrough that I have to share it…managed to make 49k HD800 sound like 9k, holy moly…still reeling in from the shock!

        @ext1 thanks for the reply. Did a deeper dive on your site as a result. Your "All HD800/S should be used without the dust cover!!" point under Personal Beliefs/Design Philosophy got me to remove them on mine just now. It's better! Thanks! :)

        Personally, I think it's bullsh*t that we even have to deal with all these silent revisions. No idea what you're getting until you receive it.

        Yeah. It seems insane to have to account for both serial numbers AND pair to pair variations. Good on @ext1 for taking on modding cans with that level of inconstancy, would drive me nuts.

      Hey Jupiter Lee.
      Congratulations on finishing your service. Looking to pick up some parts for a JAR650.

        Thank you for the congrats! You should PM me about it. By parts I assume you need it to be serviced?

      A long (and dumb) shot, but anyone willing to rip a vinyl to digital lossless for me? There's a live album that was only released on vinyl

        Yeah, I found that it can't handle sibilant tracks any better than the 6x0/800, those two actually fare better, 6x0 with tonality and 800 with sheer resolving power.

        And just think of the total audio system you could get with the money you'd spend on HE1. Heck, I could get all the super TOTL stuff I'd personally get with that money and still have cash leftover to blow on whisky and cigars

        I felt the same when I tried the HE1. Much prefer the old HE90.

        What are you upgrading from? I didn’t think DACs mattered until I moved from the Modi 1 to Bifrost 2, then wow.

        Hugo TT... lol... @songmic was almost begging me to upgrade. I'm glad I listened!
        TT really did serve me well. Kept on going overseas so a compact setup really helped. Can never go back though xD
        I'm still warming it up, after I wrap my head (ears?) around the sound I should post on the impressions thread.

      Hi, I am a music addict from Finland. I settled recently with DarkVoice and HD600. Love acoustic music, jazz, ethno and such. Did the small foam removal the other day and discovered your mod. How can I buy it?

        It’s like a 650 mod using 800 drivers, so (650+800)/2, the average of the two.

        Audio46 at 46th St. Between 5th and 6th Ave. has a good selection of headphones. They don't have many amps or DAC's though.
