Default Curious..Anybody here produced a pair of Diy headphones?

This is a subject I am very interested in.
I wondered whether anyone else here is also interested in Building' earspeakers'?

Infact I am a regular of those forums.
The main Diy thrust there is amplifiers.
one or two people have had ago at electrostatics but I have
heard little of those projects for some time.

I just wondered whether there were any like minded individuals
here.

I grant you Diy tranducer design is hard work but then so are
some of the amazing projects I read of here!

Cheers yourself. One thing I truly admire about the English is their love of beer. Now where's that Smilie? Ahhhhh.
So much for Post#701.

My diy headphones are not electrostatic but I do have electrostatic Stax 404s and have listened to Staxs for years,
the high voltages have never worried me...the stax use about
600v polarising rather than the 2kv suggested.

And Paulb have several more on me..hehe.

Commercial ones are presumably designed and tested to be safe
but I think this is an important issue for DIY phones. However,
I also think it is easy to fix. Just add a grounded metal grid
closest to the ear. That should prevent potential hazards (as
long as the grounding is not faulty, that is). Alternatively, you
could probably make the design of the phones and amp s.t.
the electrode on the ear side is always grounded.
