Custom colored HD 800 - Page 12

post #166 of 183
I forget but think it was about three weeks.

Also, much like the original Senns they look significantly better in person than they do in online images.

Thanks for the info.  Your`s look amazing in the photos, one of the nicest in this thread.  I agree on the matte; did you choose `solid` colors, or the `metallics` ?

Cheers.

Looking back at the confirmation email it says:


"ships in about 2-3 weeks

Headbands - Jet Black (matte)
Arms - Jet Black (matte)
Frames - Smoke White (matte)
Rings - Jet Black (matte)
Screens - Jet Black (matte)"

soo does this procedure void the warranty of the HD800s?

Colorware warranties their work for 1 year and the 2 year Sennheiser warranty is still valid.

Sounds good

Noticed recently this is now $1600 instead of $1500. Still worth it if HD800s are your go-to can, IMO! Also, it seems repainting is back, so you can send your current ones in to get painted. I didn't look at the price for that though.

So my hd800 came in today...the paint job that colorware does is excellent! I was looking at it with the lights reflected on to see if there were imperfections or runs...non that I could see. I also couldn't see any scratches or damages from the rebuild after paint. I think the pic doesn't look as good as in person...

Thanks...just a heads up guys, when colorware says metallic on the paint options, what they really mean is a little bit of pearl. When I hear metallic, I'm thinking "gun metal" flakes in there. It's nice though. Or maybe some colors are metallic and only a few are pearl...

I'm getting ready to send mine in--I've had some paint chipping troubles.  You can see my color choices below; I'm going with all black, except for the sand/khaki color on the rings.

 

I'm planning on choosing matte/metallic.  I wonder what the difference would be with matte/solid.

If you are going for a color highlight like you seem to be doing, I would go metallic/gloss for the ring and matte on the black parts. I went all matte black on mine.
post #178 of 183

So there are actually 4 combinations for the finish, right?  matte/metallic, gloss/metallic, matte/solid, and gloss/solid.

 

I guess I would want gloss/metallic for the sand/khaki rings, but would I choose matte/metallic or matte/solid for the black parts?

post #179 of 183
Whatever helps the color stand out. Definitely go matte on the black if highlighting a color ring.

But is your matte black matte/solid or matte/metallic?  I notice that the metallic black is called carbon black and is not as dark as the solid jet black.
