    Update on these:

    They're boxed up and I am going to send to @brencho soon...but there's rain coming in the next few days here. Call me overzealous but I'd rather NOT take any risks of any kind of damage.

    Apologies for the delay on these. Bunch of stuff came in at once + family stuff with my grandmother. Before anyone asks she's doing okay now

    They are already on the way to you. Are you able to send them along to the next person?

    Received V2 last week. Received on 3/16 from @TheloniuSnoop! Will edit post when I take possession of them safely. Can't wait to try out these very special headphones!

    To elaborate on this, Jupiter can no longer source the parts he used on the original JAR 800 mod that is currently out on the loaner tour. Starting with Caute, a new version/V2 is going to be swapped in. Caute will be able to have both to compare side by side before shipping the V1 back to me. I will also be posting some impressions comparing the two versions and providing a helpful primer on the difference. The sneak preview of my take is the V1 version is a very well done fixed HD 800. The V2 (at least the tuning on the one going on tour, he can still cater to folks preferences a bit) is a whole different beast, more of a transformation.

    Since no one will see my edit, just wanted to let everyone know that I just took receipt of these headphones, both are safe and sound in their Pelican cases!

    Alright folks,
    I was told the headband was loose and so troubleshooted with @caute . Turns out the whole slider assy is just GONE. (compare left side, and right side. left has ball bearing+T-shaped holder)
    It was not like this when I sent it out, I guess the pelican case doesn't do much...
    I have had people come with me without the ball bearing, and I found where to buy the proper sized ball bearings to solve that. That I can deal with, but the whole bearing holder assy just being gone is...
    I had another person come to me without the spring part of the headband and I solved that by finding something similar but in the process I reached out to Senn US and UK, which both of them said "we don't care, talk to Sonova" and from Sonova they said they aren't selling.
    So I'll have to find a way to CNC these or something. So unfortunately this loaner will be on hold until we find a replacement part, or some previous loaner participant finds this somewhere in their house.

    Hope someone finds this, just to add some context, this is the JAR800S, the other two models are fine...

    @TheloniuSnoop Was the JAR800S headband all right when you had them? We're wondering if it happened during transit...
