Nice drivers to use as a custom grado style headphone. These will work with all types music modern and electronic etc.  everything comes with $120
too busy, but chose 4 sets and hope to mess with them soon.....
just to chime in here with some updated sound reports f​rom the f​rontlines.....I've heard 3 sets of​ the drivers and am enjoying them. I still need to diy f​abricate some proper pads and so f​inal impressions can only come at that point. What i've noticed is quite a nice degree of​ consistency f​rom set to set, which is a nice change f​rom my experiences with other drivers. I hear a balanced fairly neutral sound with nice bass that isn't bloated or boomy (or weak) and a...
here's what I've got as far as grub screws (put 4 in for each cup but probably only need/use one, to just put pressure on the driver edge and driver the entire driver tight to the remaining sides of the cup). I will probably still try and size the overall lip opening to be a press fit although because there is a secondary attach mechanism in the grub screw, the fit can but just a touch loose, compared to what I typically refer to as press fit. Overall I found the grub...
    the naming of each corresponds from left to right in the pics       Spent a couple hours searching ebay for some suitable pads for the standard grado style cup, as an alternative to the typical foam. All these need to be modded particularly on the back to decrease the attachment section since the grado lip is smaller than any of these. But these where all chosen because they have a nice large front opening. Two things I noticed when messing with pads on...
@fleasbaby You should be able to get the allen set screws to work fine even on the angled lip of your last cup. Just use a drill press with the cup clamped in proper position to drill the guide hole. Or a super steady hand drill as long as you remain square with the driver edge and disregard the angle on the cup lip.   If you want to wait to use that rosewood for the front rim, that is an option, or you could use it for the current design. It is fairly precious in my...
@speedking....great namesake by the way!! deep purple fan? In any case, you are lucky to have a set of H's come your way. Let us know what you think of them in comparison to the ypsi's. I have not heard the H's but have played with the nak7 driver which is the same as what joe used. He had the maker do a mod or two to the driver itself and the magnet structure but I think I got a sense of what it was about. I think we might be able to coax the ypsilon into a similar...
 general categories of modding opportunity:     1) the driver to cup 'coupling' and the size and density of the front section. Basically one has the choice of sticking with the stock RS style grado cups where the pad hangs on by that little rabbet/recess and the front section is more/less the same width as the body of the cup. If anyone wants to experiment with the different appraoch as seen in my last pics, one only needs to start out with a 2.5" turning blank rather...
I've got some of that adhesive backed bandage tape. Good idea to use it for the driver covers. it might affect the treble however. at least the variety I've got in front of me....I was using it applied to the back of driver -outer ring of vent holes....had some good affect there.   jav's cups look sweet. nice design....the maple and cherry are quite similar, doubt you'd hear a difference there. the rosewood might show a difference...but not as much as the likely driver...
