I saw someone selling an HD800s making a big deal that they are serial number 1000. Is that a thing?

Only if the buyer buys it for that.  Me, I'd go for 13, 666, or 42, myself, 'cause that's just how I roll.  31416, in a pinch (just slightly trolly).  1618, also.  271828, perhaps...

I'd recommend serial# 69, makes honeymooners achieve blissful soundstage

My HD-800 has the full mod applied, now.  All I have to say is this: if you have a non-modded pair of HD-800 and you have a pair of Sure olive foams, just go ahead and do the mod with the foams.  You'll thank yourself for the 2 minutes of time.  If you don't have any Shure olive foams, you might as well get an "official" "resonator," from whatever source.  I'm not hearing a big difference between them, but either is definitely an obvious improvement over the stock phones. If you are stupid like me, you pay $20 for a pack of Shure Olives, and then $20 for a "full" mod. Don't be stupid like me.  

I've got my HD-800s on my head and I'm grinning.  That is what is important. I'd love to compare this to a pair of HD-800S, if anybody wants to send their pair to me.

My HD-800 is 29692, if anybody gives a shit.  I don't.  This is my third HD-800.  I plan on keeping this one.

Last words for me about this mod. I don't want people think I'm here to promote my business.  :)

I appreciate that you put it up for sale.  I bought one from you on Ebay and love it.

Link? Are you using both mods, or just the super duper resonator?

Sorry but I don't sell them on ebay.  Direct sale only for anyone who asks  

From what I remember, there are two ebay offers. One in the US and one in Italy. Please, make me a favor and avoid and don't promote the Italian one. He didn't respect the CC-by-SA license and didn't credit me nor linked to the orginal thread on SBAF.  The US seller did respect the license :) 

Glad you're enjoying the mod though.

I didn't mean to be an asshole.  Which is saying something, for me.  I would suggest putting some up on eBay.  I only bought from where I did because of my eBay coupon.

No, no ebay for me and you're free to buy whereever you want. i'm not offended at all ;)  if i didn't want people to make them, I wouldn't have released it under CC-by-SA license.

Open source is just something I appreciate and promote and I much prefer people who respect it . that's it :)

I have to say that, after listening to the "official non-official" version that I have, for over a week, it is better than the Shure Olive foamie mod.  The Shure Olive comes close, especially if you already have some and don't want to spend the money, but, well, the "real" mod fixes the phones.  Is this what the HD-800S sounds like?  If so, it's what the HD-800 should have been from the beginning.  Damn it sounds good.

The HD800S sound a tad warmer to me.
