to Jazz for including a link to this HD800 mod thread
which also includes a link to this prior HD800 mod thread
which is real helpful to folks like me who read head-fi occasionally and miss some great ideas like these!
and when I saw this comment by IPodPJ
"Each HD800 varies in tonal balance. When at the last meet, I tried Uncle Erik's HD800 on a vinyl rig with my cable and compared them to my HD800 with the mod. His pair had a little more bass than mine did. So you won't be able to find one mod that will work for everyone, since all pairs of HD800 measure differently."
I was really happy, because my HD800s suffer from being too dark, not too bright --- they seem to emphasize the lower harmonics instead of the higher harmonics. I installed the Silver Dragon V3 cable from Moon and that really helped a lot. But I would very much like to know what you wizards think I could try to mod in the inner reflection surfaces that might take it the other way, brighter???
If some of you have ideas for this direction, would you PLEASE share them here???
