Default ANOTHER REBUILD OF A BOUGHT HEADPHONE USING NEOS.

PICS showing work in progress,the headphones in pic 8 are my previous rebuild, which sound marvelous, well worth the effort! Just a few things to change used 2 different layouts to see which was the best, the one on the left is slightly louder. So must redo the one on the right will see how my second rebuild goes, vis a vis the impedance before I change the first ones impedance, if I do!

do you mean my headphone rebuilds? If so they sound brilliant, have worn both pairs for hours on end, have never before worn headphones so long. Usually they grate on your ears after awhile but these full range planar designs are so easy to listen to. They don't sound in the ear as so many do. Like listening to speakers inside your head! You don't realize you have headphones on. Very strange feeling or should I say hearing! These spoil you for any other method of listening period. Certainly glad I finished both pairs. Even if the second rebuild was harder than the first. Different shape and layout, I used two different shells, of cheap headphones I bought from Amazon, so I didn't have to build the shell as well. Which would have been beyond my woodworking skills!!

well that's good!

I'm tempted to try something like this myself but maybe won't have enough time till 2014

I shall read the rest of this thread when I get the chance. I take it the loudspeaker sounds pretty good too?!

can't you make time go bed 1 hour later or get up 1 hour earlier, it wouldn't take you long to build if you use a cheap pair of headphones for the frames. The best frame to use would be PRO-LUX PRO 20 headphones. Just the right size to build the diaphragm and wood surround with the perforated sheet to fix magnets to. My pics show all the details you would need. The work needed is well worth it when you listen to them. They sound better than any headphones, that I have ever heard. Marvelous and sweet, they must be because I have never worn headphones for so long before, usually they irritate after a short time, but with these I have even watched television wearing them, which I have never done before.

might have a problem there in the resistance, headphones usually have higher resistance then speakers. so could be an impedance miss match.

I suppose so!

If I get up 1 hour earlier I'll be yawning all day. If I go to bed 1 hour later, one thing will lead to another and the next thing you know it will be 4am!

This month I'm seriously skint! Don't even think I can spare 20. Besides, I'm still busy working on my invention. Still got to set up some spectrum analyser software and work out how to test it. I've still got a few products, permutations, designs I haven't even built yet. Everything hand made!Of course I'd have to try my invention with the headphones
