I got this pair of broken HE-6 from a friend. He asked me if I could put the electrostatic drivers in them. Since the size was very similar to the earlier headphones that I made, I made some changes to the designs, cut the parts, and put everything together. The conversion went pretty well.

I just keep myself busy with making headphones. For this time, I go back to my first oval shape design. I etch out all the unneeded copper and use 0.5 mm PCB as spacers. I learn how to oil the wood along the way. I really like how they turn out. The sound is the best among all the headphones I've made so far.

Would you consider sharing the drawings so I could make a pair?

I see you posted the drawing for the stator. Missing the spaces and the shell.

Then I will makes me a ESL Headphone!

Hi Wachara - Wow - looks attractive to me - not least when the oil goes into the wood and the structure of the wood is clearer and gets a deeper hue and a slight "shine". Also interesting that you find those to be the best sounding of the ELSs you've made...

Can I ask you if - compared with your previous designs - you've made other changes to this ELS apart from the shape?

And then I wonder - might it be possible for you to take a close up photo of your stators' holes? Depending on how you made them I might have a suggestion (if you're interested of course) ...

Greetings,

Jesper

Hi Mark,

I'm more than willing to share my design with you. Send me your email and I'll email the files to you.
