I'm talking about the screen section nearest to the 'R'. The unevenness doesn't show well on the photo which may explain why I've never seen it before on an HD800 as all I've ever seen is photos(!), but that section is quite uneven (wrinkly) looking in real life. As I say, it's the same on the other side so I can except it, but it's just not what I expected which was cosmetic perfection! Are they all like this?

I'm guessing the foil has to be bent at the top corner of that section for fit. I see the same in mine on both sides.

Mine also looks almost the same.

A bit wavy, especially if there's light reflection on it

if it is actually bent like that it would annoy the **** out of me. Id have to send it back - it looks like a squashed coke can

I've seen several like that in audio stores. Don't know if they came like that or if it's prone to happening after a lot people checking them out.

Perhaps the newer ones are like this but the older ones aren't? Mine's 27xxx. What are the sn's of others who's are like this, and the sn's of those who's aren't?

Mine is also 270xx and can see a bit wavy

Another 27xxx with the wavy.

It will be better if someone with sn 28xxx also give their feedback on this subject. So we can confirm that this is not an issue with 27xxx hd800s.

If all the HD800 are designed that way they will all warp eventually . Mine, serial number is in the 20xxx and it slightly warp also its just a tin screen after all .

Mine is pretty new. Bought only a month ago, also guys confirmed so far have similar serial number starting with 27xxx. That's why i thought whether this affects only from 27xxx.

post #9044 of 19164

14xxx here. it's fine.

post #9045 of 19164
Very early SN 01519 here, and there is nothing even remotely resembling warping on the mesh. Looks like a superficial defect to me.
