I think so too. Except the onion that's being peeled is your brain, and we're peeling it in reverse, adding layers. I'm going to get antonyfirst to map the process with his fMRI machine. I think he runs it with a Mini^3.

If you don't get the matching woofer/bi-amp/crossover box, yes, you'll have to replace all those components. People sell the panels by themselves for speaker midranges, but you want a complete little speaker system, right? A kind of AKG K1000 that sits on a desk?

here's the pict of a died YH100 driver, there's a macro show one deep scratches on the diagphram...



my question are, does anyone here have a spare or abandoned driver of YH100 that still work ?
my friend need it for his YH100, that by accidentally died becos' of 1 philips screw (from the baffle) got slipped into the magnet hole...
can it be fix ? if it can do, please tell me how...
there's a signal showed on ohmmeter but it's not the same as the work one though...

Yeah, kind of like that. Hopefully better, since it's planar, but the massive price difference would lead me to believe otherwise. Should I give up on this idea and just wait for an auction with the woofer box? I don't know how good the stock unit is, so I might end up upgrading anyway.

Someone needs to ship Don + his magic marker over to you, to work his wily magic on them.

Well, the 702 is very good, but it's not a thousand-dollar headphone. However, you can get some very good sound out of it, and if you have a good soundcard (why don't they call them audiocards? this ain't Marioland anymore) with good EQ, you can get excellent sound out of it, plus you can do fun experiments, like the one where you lay them on the floor on either side of your feet aiming up at your ears and find yourself saying things like whoa and neatokeeeeen and eoh, hawl-a-graphic, dewd... and then trying to figure out just why it does that. Yes, I know: it's yet another teachable moment.

Why is it good? Mostly, it's the bandpass woofer box. Makes all the difference.

I would, because I don't have all the parts to replace what's inside. Make sure you get the power supply floor-wart too. You don't need the volume control remote puck.

I feel for your friend, but, unlike the problem with the YH-1000, the YH-100 is pretty reliable. I'd suggest he watch for another YH-100, because any repair is going to be fraught with risk. Don didn't have to break a glue joint on the YH-1000, but if your friend has a small rotary grinder tool and some small clamps...

EDIT: Waidaminnit-- the DR-11 has two dead drivers?

Now that everyone owns an LCD-1 or HE-5...

Hey, somebody just got an HP-2 (kinda raggedy but looks intact) for $26 shipped. Off the Usual Online Auction Site, too. That's pretty amazing. We've had a string of pretty good deals recently, but this HP-2 was a kick.

hey guys - how comfortable is a, hp-3, or yh-3 or anything similar? they seem to have just a plastic headband?

I bid on that but backed off because of the raggedy look.

Clamping pressure on my YH-3s was insane. I put mine on my Buddha head statue (much to my wife's dismay) for 3 days and that helped a lot. Now I have that vintage headphone stand that spread them about 50% and I use it to stretch my T10s from time to time.

if you have a small head, they are quite comfy but eventually the supraaural aspects begins to squeeze.

man, it's time to start keeping an open eye - that is just too good to let go.

Oh, NEVER back off because of mere raggediness. Notice that the plastic headband strips on that one seemed to be intact-- that's rare. The raggedy rest can be fixed with a good washup and maybe some black magic marker.

Yes, a plastic headband must be stretched over a beachball or little speaker or statue of Buddha to give relief of clampiness, and the stretch is likely to be only temporary. So far, no one's done experiments with a heat gun to see if the stretch can be made permanent.

Uh oh. So you got it apart but can't get the center electrode connected? Are there photos?

Excellent. Good photos.
A very strange headphone. It's likely that the bass control is merely a treble cut control and that the treble control rolls off the bass. Odd that the drivers worked, then stopped. I assume you bypassed the cable and EQ circuitry for your tests.

Have we ever suggested that you get a heavy-duty contact cleaner similar to the DeoxIT that's sold in the US? It's just possible that a tiny drop or two applied to the center electrode will help. Have you tried gently twisting the center electrode using the solder tab?
