    Up for tour is the Jupiter Audio Research modded HD650. This is the finalized version. I will be shipping this out to the first recipient once we firm up the tour list.

    If interest, please post your general location. Established friends in good standing only. Limiting to 10 users for now pending approval to keep it going longer. This is not necessarily first come, first serve.

    If you are at all worried you might poke the exposed driver or pour dust into it, consider passing. Prefer users with prior HD650 experience.

    Ship with $400 insured, signature required, via FedEx or UPS only (no USPS). Duration for loan is five days per person. Please post in this thread when you receive the item and when you send it off.

    Please post impressions and discussions in this thread: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...-impressions-measurements-finalized-mod.6968/

    I'm interested. Located in Boston. Own HD600 now, and have prior experience with stock HD650 and HD650M.

    Edit: just saw this is limited. Was hoping to get in on more loaners but I'll pass in favor of known ears.

    Hoping to tag along and have a listen if someone in SoCal gets it.
    And if Hands happens to have only 9 people on the list, then I'd like to be the 10th. My primary headphones have been the HD6xxK for as long as the 6xx have existed.

    On the off chance these are allowed to Canada, I'd jump on it.

    Holy crap, been a month of me putting this off. It sounds like @purr1n will not be able to check these out right away (correct me if I'm wrong), so we can have him check later if he likes.

    The guy that made these said he doesn't plan on these coming back, so that lifts some restrictions on number of participants, a more relaxed schedule, etc., and perhaps can do a giveaway to a member when done.

    To all those that mentioned interest, should be no problem going to you. I think international shipping is off the table for now, though.

    I'm totally interested. Would be my first loaner. @famish99 and I don't live far from each other so I could snag it from him after he's done and ship it to the next participant. Just an idea.

    Why do you have to be so nasty? I can offer my pair for an UK/EU loan if there's enough interest. Same conditions, must return before brexit.

    I’m interested in these as a loaner. I heard a pair at a mini meet and I want to try out at home. In DC-area. Thanks

    Hi all,

    I've had these for a while and (begrudgingly) need to send them along, but realized that we never finalized a list. I'm in Boston, so makes sense to go east to west. I threw together the below.

    @Gaspasser - Washington, D.C.
    @LetMeBeFrank - Indiana

    @famish99 / @ColtMrFire - near Austin, TX
    @Mdkaler - SoCal
    @purr1n - Same. Think this was supposed to end with him?

    @Hands, is this open for Canadian Friends?

    You can remove me please. A local friend might be able to loan me his pair.
    Thanks @zonto

    FWIW, I'm in the process of making 3 more (2 HD600s, and 1 HD650) for the tour. Thought 2 and 2 would be a healthy amount to be travelling around. I hope more people can enjoy those that way! Since I'm at NY I'll be able to ship these out easily too.
    I really like the 600 modded more than the 650, it's been my go-to nowadays. Curious to see what the community thinks!

    Are the HD600 mods the same as the HD650 mods? If not, how do they differ? HD600 was always my go-to, but I like the JAR HD650 more than the vanilla HD600 on my Ragnarok.

    @zonto @ColtMrFire The 600 I also worked with Hands on it, it has some foam adjustments to better suit the driver characteristics. Honestly for me after I did the 600 I haven't been listening on my 650 at all...

    OK, actually, I figured since people are really interested...I'll send my 600 I'm using to Hands (will check if he's OK with that) first for measurements and such. After him someone else can listen to the 600. I'll send it after canjam though.

    Here's the other thing. Senn is saying I need to wait 3 weeks (!) for the 650 and 600 drivers I ordered. Sucks, because I have the other parts ready on deck already. Does anyone have really recent pairs that I can buy off them instead? That would help accelerate the process.

    @zonto Hold off on any international shipments for now, including Canada. They're pricey and a PITA relative to shipping within the states. We can add those to the end OR use one of the additional loaner pairs for other regions.

    @ext1 Sure, send the HD600 pair my way first, if you want. I'll be much faster about shipping it out for a tour this time. :)
